Coffee Lovers Bloghop - Yes, I'm Joining



Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop
See the news here!  And this is my entry.


I distressed the shiny bronze note card with Cup O'Joe and distress ink Carved Pumpkin which made a more metallic looking paper. What other color would you use for the cup itself, but Cup O'Joe?  

I don't have that many coffee stamps, but I bought the new Coffee Cup Tags with matching dies and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the set.  The cream looks like it's perfect for a hot cocoa.  I guess it's supposed to be foam.  Obviously, I don't drink coffee, because I can't think of foam that tall.  You know how they say "stretch your stamps"?  Well, I'm stretching them.  The design on the cup is for winter, but with that DARK deep ink, it's as autumn as you can get.

On September 23rd only, A2Z Scrapbooking will be doing a rafflecopter giveaway on the a2z blog for a $25 gift code to the store.
