Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Hi all!  It’s hard to believe that Summer is over!  It seems like it went really quickly!  But now that Fall is fast approaching, it’s time for the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  Each of the four  seasons is celebrated in coffee, tea, and hot cocoa!I’m thinking Halloween for this one, so here is my card:

This cute vampire would rather drink coffee than anything else for Halloween!  The die set is Mama Elephant for the vampire called favor bag accessory Halloween, and the Taylored Expressions joe to go die for the cup.  I used kind of shimmery paper that I had for his face and hand, to give him a bit of an eerie look.  I had the background paper in my stash and printed out the sentiment on my computer.  Please check out the other wonderful cards on the bloghop, and there are great prizes too!!  Thanks to all the sponsors and to Amy Tsuruta, who always does a fabulous job as the Co-Hostess!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

Taylored Expressions 9th Birthday/Texas Strong

Hi,  Happy Birthday to Taylored Expressions!  They are having a big celebration for their 9th birthday! The Taylored Expressions 9th Birthday Sketch Challenge! They chose a sketch and are challenging card makers to use it as inspiration for their own cards.

I chose to make a card for the people affected by Hurricane Harvey.  My husband’s daughter lives in Houston. While she was safe from the flooding, she is sad for her city and for Texas, as we all are.  My card today is a dedication to those suffering, and to the volunteers who are helping.

.

I used the Taylored Expression banner stacklets 1  and the sentiment is from the set called shade tree scripture.  I had the sticker in my stash and it was perfect!  I intend to send her the card as soon as mail is established that she can pass on to a friend or another person who is in need.  If you would like to donate to victims of Hurricane Harvey, here is a link to  local Houston charities that she has provided https://www.houstoniamag.com/articles/2017/8/29/donate-to-these-local-houston-charities, there is also the JJ Watt relief fund,  Samaritan’s Purse,  and of course The American Red Cross.   “Be Good!”  Debbie

Good Morning Everyone!  It’s time for the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop!

Each season we celebrate coffee, tea, and hot cocoa by making cards and papercrafts.

Here is my entry for today:

I wanted to do something sunny and fun!  I just got the Sunshine Cutting Plate from Taylored Expressions and have been anxious to use it.  I printed the sentiment on my computer first, then cut it out.  The Takeout coffee cup is from Impression Obsession, and the sunglasses are the little bits sunglasses  from Taylored Expressions.

It’s a beautiful day in Ohio today, after a day of heat and rain, so we are heading out to enjoy some sunshine!   Be sure and check out the other entries in the Bloghop, there is so much creativity and inspiration out there!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop!

 

 

It’s time to celebrate Spring!  Last week at this time, we had snow on the ground, but yesterday, (Hooray!) it was 75 degrees!   It is also time for the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  There are lots of fun cards in the Bloghop to celebrate warm weather and sunshine, coffee, tea, and cocoa.   For my card today, I say  “Cheers to Spring!”

This fun little bunny is raising her coffee cup in a toast to Spring!   She is made from the Favor Bag Accessory – Bunny die from Mama Elephant.  The coffee cup is from Taylored Expressions, from a set called joe to-go.  The paper I used is from Doodlebug, spring things and cream & sugar.  I created the sentiment on my computer and used the My Favorite Things Fishtail Flag Frames for the banner.  The little embellies are from Doodlebug also.  Happy Spring everyone, and be sure to check out the other wonderful cards in this fun Bloghop!  “Be Good!” Debbie
