National Coffee Day + Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends,

It's that time of the year again when the cardmakers who love their caffeine in the form of coffee (and tea) celebrate the widely popular Coffee Loving Cardmakers Fall Blog Hop!  I created this card to celebrate the occasion and since Crackerbox & Suzy stamps is one of the many super sponsors involved I encourage you to leave a comment on this post to be in the running for the $25 gift card.

I have to say the sentiment above really speaks to me as a coffee lover.  I just can't imagine a day without my daily cup (ahem cups) of coffee.  What's your personal favorite coffee brand?  flavor? or is it tea that really strikes your fancy?  Either way the above sentiment could work for either beverage right???

If you are wondering about the background on the top layer, it was made using a very popular technique right now with alcohol inks on Yupo paper.  You drop the different colors and I chose all brown shades mixed in with some gold.  After the inks dry, then used a specially formulated ink (Alcohol lift ink) to remove the alcohol ink - genius invention I say!!

The layers below are from corrugated paper, then a sheet of lovely plank patterned paper from Bo Bunny.  See links at the end of my post if you want to shop for what I've used here.


Sales/discounts still going on in what's left of September (and onward) - don't miss out!!
