2020 National Coffee Day Blog Hop


It’s National Coffee Day and what better way to celebrate than with your favorite cup and a fun Blog Hop where you’ll have the chance to win a TON of prizes.

Winners from this hop are chosen by comments, not creations, so it’s fun and easy!

Read all the way through to find the instructions and link list at the end of this post.


The card we are sharing today was created by Esther Asbury using our JAVA die set.

It has a wonderful country vibe in fall colors that I love. Take a look:

I am loving this fun dotted mug with the lace border on top and the die cut JAVA heart.

This is a no-stamp card, using just a few die sets to create this FAB look!

What a treat to receive this card in the mail!

The fun papers are from the Farmhouse collection by Graphic 45.

Note that our Fishtail Banner dies were used to make the hanging pennants on top – love that!

Thanks so much for this fun card, Esther!


You can find Esther’s post on her blog here.

    Wonderful farmhouse themed coffee card. I like the lace trim on the cup. Card making brings me joy during the process, teaching it and hearing the response of the recipient.

  2. Kristin L Padalik says:

    Great blog hop! Happy Coffee Day! I love the versatility of stamping!

  3. Donna Fetter says:

    Good morning’
    Thank you for the chance of winning your supplies.
    For me, card making is relaxing. Keeps my mind occupied.

  4. Christine Kiehl says:

    Truly awesome card! I love the paper choices! Fun!

  5. Lori Kobular says:

    Love that farmhouse paper collection! Your tall coffee cup stamp and die cut is so pretty and your Crochet Dies are gorgeous! Who doesn’t love to add a little bit of lace to their creations! I sure do! Happy National Coffee Day!!

  6. Tara says:

    Great cards! I love the quiet I get while crafting it’s my safe place

  7. Lisa Byers says:

    Love all of the products you used, especially that farm paper!! I love the quiet I get while creating my cards. No TV, radio, people, or outside noise. I have my own craft room that is messy at times and not real organized but it’s my space. I love that room. We built this house 6 years ago and I took the biggest spare bedroom which is HUGE. You would think I would have it decked out nice but it’s filled with all of my memories, magazines, cookbooks, craftbooks and craft supplies (from 4-5 different crafts) so it looks overdone. Oh well, it’s mine!!

  8. Amanda Wilcox says:

    Cardmaking is my escape. I love coloring but taking those images and creating something tangible with it is so fun…and sharing them with others is the ultimate best!

  9. Rachelle O. says:

  38. Crystal LeShae Evans says:

    I love the multi media style vibe I’m getting from your creations here! Very pretty! Card making for me has been very therapeutic, it’s saved me from a very depression, I moved to a new state where I have no friends or family – it has been the best decision for my husband career. But for me it has been very hard since I’m very family oriented, so to be able to create happy mail to send out to love one that I miss very much makes my heart happy and gives me something to look forward to! & since starting this my family now crafts & sends me stuff to it is especially fun to receive hand written letters or fun creations from my nieces & nephews! So card making has helped to keep us connected 💛 Thanks for sharing! Have a HAPPY COFFEE DAY EVERYDAY!😊

  39. Dawn Skene says:

  42. Suzanne Harkinson says:

    Esther’s cards are always so beautiful. My friend asked me to attend a class on card making at our local high school and I was hooked. I love to send cards. I like to let people know I’m thinking of them and I’m not much of a phone person. Thanks for being a sponsor of the hop.

  43. OH WOW … these sets are awesome and Esther’s samples are AMAZING! She is so talented. I can see where these Farmhouse papers would be right up your alley Sharon! LOL Thanks for a great opportunity and wonderful inspiration!
