Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop #5

I am here tonight with my 5th entry for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I just love these events that Amy Tsuruta and her crew put on twice a year....so much fun, inspiration and prizes!!

I was inspired by this fun sketch from Stick It Down for my cards:

I am also entering this card at Laurel Seabrook's Inspired By Christmas Linens Challenge. I picked papers for my card that reminded me of Christmas tablecloths and napkins.
And don't forget to leave your comments on all my coffee project posts this week as I will be randomly choosing a winner for this little gift of a coffee bean stencil and $10 Dunkin Donut gift card.

Well I better hit the sheets.....it takes me awhile to shut off my brain sometimes and fall asleep so I better get to bed and try to get a full night's sleep...5am comes very early.

Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop #3

This is y 3rd entry for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop but being the inclusive group that we are, we are also including hot cocoa and tea. So I decided to make a hot cocoa card this time and like how quick and easy it was. That 3x4 card was in my stash from a Simple Stories winter themed collection and the oval sentiment is from a digital freebie a couple of years ago from
Julee Tilman.

I also used Julee's sketch #503 from Mojo Monday....I am so thrilled that Julee is sharing sketches again. I just LOVE her card sketches. I substituted a rectangle for the large circle and an oval for the smaller circle. Sketches are so versatile....I can always feel free to make it my own.

I am offering a small prize to one of the commenter this week on my coffee themed blog posts. This coffee bean stencil and $10 Dunkin' Donuts gift card is up for grabs. I will choose a winner next Sunday evening December 9th.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have had a busy weekend and I think I am going to relax on the couch a bit.


Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop #2

I had a fun and busy day yesterday and did not get a chance to craft or post this tag as my second entry for the fun and inspirational Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. It is going on through Friday this week and I hope to craft coffee themed projects all week so stay tuned. In the meantime there are loads of prizes to be won and inspiration to be found so be sure to click the above link to go to the official blog. In fact, I am offering a small prize to a random commenter from all the comments left on my coffee themed projects. Here is what I am offering:

I have a cool coffee bean stencil and a $10 Dunkin Donuts gift card that I will choose a winner for next Sunday December 9th.

 Here is my tag:

I was totally inspired by Lisa Bzibziak's stacked coffee cup tag from day 6 of
Tracey McNeeley's 25 Days of Christmas Tags

I am also entering this card at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Gift It Challenge

That is it for now....I have to finish getting my house decorated and I want to work on some more coffee themed Christmas cards. I will be back later to share more projects.

Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop #1

It is one of my favorite times of the year again....time for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. Amy Tsuruta works tirelessly to put on these hops which have continued to grow in popularity and participation. This year there are over 80 Super Sponsors with TONS of prizes and a nearly endless supply of inspiration. You REALLY need to check the gallery of entries....they are always amazing.

My first project for this hop is a set of five winter themed cards that I made and donated to the Caring Hearts Drive. My father was in assisted living before he passed away this last summer and it breaks my heart to see how lonely some dear folks are in the assisted living, nursing home and rehabilitation centers in this country. So these cards and the others I made will be given to residents of ALFs to hopefully bring a smile to their face this holiday season.

I am also entering these cards in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge

That's it for right now....I will be back soon with another Coffee themed project. The only thing I like more than drinking coffee is making coffee themed projects.
Oh! I almost forgot to mention that I will be doing a drawing from all the comments on my coffee projects this week for a little blog candy....details to come tomorrow.


Breakfast With Goofy

I have been working on finishing up the last few pages for the album documenting my son and granddaughters' trip to Disney in June 2017 with us. For this page sketch 165 from Sketch-n-Scrap was perfect. I entered it in their monthly challenge.

That is about it for now. I will be back shortly with some cards to share.

Happy 60th

My husband always makes my birthdays special....doing things with me that I really enjoy. Last year I had a milestone birthday as I turned 60 and he turned it into a wonderful day with just the two of us. As a breast cancer survivor, I am keenly aware of how precious life is and Dave helps me to enjoy everyday.

For this page I used the Jump Start Sketch from The ScrapRoom Blog and am entering it in their challenge HERE.

Well, that is about it for now....I was on vacation all last week and it is back to reality and back to work tomorrow. Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Fall 2017

I love the colors of autumn and working with them to create cards and scrapbook pages so I was thrilled to have these photos from my son's Instagram feed to document.

I used this fun sketch from Lisa Hidy at Sketch-n-Scrap and am entering it in their
November challenge. They have the best sketches that keep me inspired all month.

That is it for now. I will be back tomorrow morning to share another page that I have gotten done this month. Thanks for stopping in.
