Coffee Lovers #1

Hi all! The time for the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Hop has arrived and I must admit it did catch me off guard. I had not prepared ahead of time for it as I was so caught up with other things but this afternoon I did get one card done for it.


The tea cup and saucer stamps are from the Tea Party stamp set by The Ton. I made an extra saucer to put the gingerbread man on which is a die from Cheery Lynn Designs. The sentiment is from The Jingle All The Way stamp set by Carta Bella Designer Stamps. These images were placed on a white piece of card stock which was die cut with an Unbranded scalloped stitched die. I added a little plaid ribbon on the one corner which is one of the many beautiful ones from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I added some stickers to the tea cup and also by the sentiment. And some rhinestones were added to the gingerbread man as well as some white using a paint pen.

We had reasonably warm weather the last few days but it sounds like some nasty weather is moving in for the weekend. So it might be a time to stay put and get a few more cards for the hop made. Regardless, I am so happy you dropped by and I love to read the comments you leave.

God bless,
Verna

Adorable card Verna, Adding the sticker to the cup was a great way to turn it into a Christmas cup... nicely done. Who can resist a gingerbread man just paying there on the plate waiting to be eaten :)

Thank you for all of your sweet comments and your well wishes for my husband. He is home and slowly recovering. You never expect a simple surgery to go wrong.

Very cute and the little gingerbread man made me smile. The hop caught me off guard too but I hope to enter.
It is bright and sunny this morning but will be turning to pouring rain later on. Have a good day.
