Coffee Lovers Bloghop!

***THIS IS MY SECOND POST OF THE DAY.   IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR MY NEWTON'S NOOK DESIGN'S GUEST POST, PLEASE SEE BELOW**

Hi again!   I'm back to link up a card to the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!   If you'd like to play along, click HERE!

The background is embossing paste with a Tim Holtz stencil.   Once dry, I added Distress Ink in Scattered Straw and Rusty Hinge.   I figured it kind of represents my morning coffee, lol!   The stamp is an oldie, and I'm not even sure who makes it.   Maybe Fiskars??   Sorry I'm not sure on that one!   The image is colored with Copics, with touches of Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.   It was fussy cut and mounted with foam tape.   The sentiment was embossed with Liquid Platinum embossing powder from Ranger...love that stuff!   

Hope you've had a chance to celebrate National Coffee Day - I got my free cup from Dunkin' Donuts this morning....yum!  There's a fun Q&A that goes along with the hop - here are my answers!


1. When did you start drinking coffee? - I've been a coffee lover off and on, but I really started drinking it regularly about two and a half years ago when I got my Keurig.


2. What is favorite brand. - Starbucks Caffe Verona


3. What is the most amazing coffee that you had? Remember where and when? - It's silly, but it was at a hotel this past summer.   It's when I discovered how much I liked Starbucks' Caffe Verona (see above!).

4. If I don't drink my needed coffee, I will...  - Believe it or not, I'll be okay!   I need caffeine though.   Diet Pepsi will get me through!!
