Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hi all, I'm playing in the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I stumbled upon the announcement of the hop when I was reading blogs last week. I saw all the cool prizes and great companies that were sponsoring the hop and decided to make a card to link up. The only requirement is to make a coffee themed card. Well, I could do that! 

I pulled out my retired Flourishes coffee and tea set called "Grab a cup". I stamped the coffee cup with Momento Rich Cocoa and colored it with Copics. I stamped it again on kraft and cut out the sleeve and layered it on the cup. After I tied on a piece of twine and popped it on foam tape on top of a MFT stitched circle die. 

I found some older paper in my stash to complete the MFT Wednesday Stamp Challenge sketch.The brown ribbon is PTI and the wood veneer arrow is Studio Calico. 

Some questions that were posted on Facebook:

1. When did you start drinking coffee? I was about 25 or 30 years old before I started drinking it. I was a tea lover before that. 
2. What is favorite brand (you can name up to three). New England Breakfast Blend is my favorite to make at home and Dunkin French Vanilla is my favorite at a coffee shop! 
3. What is the most amazing coffee that you had? Remember where and when? I guess it was a pumpkin latte I had last year. I try not to drink designer coffees because of the calories. I like my home made coffee each morning the best. 
4. If I don't drink my needed coffee, I will...Obsess about where and when I can get one, like this morning, I was out of creamer at home and won't drink it black so I shortcut my hair and make up routine so I could leave the house and go get some!
