Coffee Lovers Bloghop!

Hi friends!


The lovely Chaitali, has put together the most fabulous hop in honor of a most delicious beverage, coffee!  Today is National Coffee Day after all, and what better way to celebrate, than with the wonderful papercrafting community!  I love coffee, seriously..are there words necessary for its awesomeness?  No, I didn't think so.


I, of course, had to break out the super fun Love You A Latte from Lawn Fawn, which the i {heart} papers has (yeah!) so, starting with a piece of white card stock that I die cut with the Avery Elle Finished Frames, I stamped one of the sentiments in orange.  I then took the coordinating dies from the stamp set, and paper-pieced the sleeve with Kraft cardstock, adhered that to the cup, and added the finished die cuts to the panel.  I then stamped a few hearts in red ink, and glittered them up with a Wink of Stella glitter brush pen.


To finish off the card, I adhered a piece of brown plaid patterned paper from the Sweater Weather 6x6 paper pad by Lawn Fawn onto a white card base, and popped my panel up with foam.

There are a few questions that Virginia Lu suggested we do as a fun add on in our post, so here goes.

1. When did you start drinking coffee? 
    I started drinking coffee in college.  I had never cared for it much, but apparently the late nights and hard studying were enough to propel me to the dark side.

2. What is favorite brand (you can name up to three). 
    I really enjoy Starbucks.  I love their dark roasts!

3. What is the most amazing coffee that you had? Remember where and when?
    I can certainly remember a time when I had Dow Egberts coffee in the college cafeteria.  It was, at that time, the best tasting stuff ever!

4. If I don't drink my needed coffee, I will...
   Okay, confession time: at this point in my life I am not drinking coffee...WHAT!!  But, I hope to return to it soon.  I need to clear up some health issues before I can resume my most beloved beverage.  As a gluten sensitive person, I have found that coffee aggravates my symptoms, and upon further investigating, learned that proteins in other foods, in this case, coffee, can sometimes cross-react with gluten antibodies in people who are sensitive.  Who knew?   

So, there you go!  I hope you will hop along to others and see what coffee themed projects others have come up with!

Have a great day!

  20. Fabulous card and no coffee makes me think of my pregnancies when I couldn't stomach coffee, but yearned for it in a major way. It was for a god cause, so I support the no coffe for health reasons agenda, but fun crafty coffee fun.
