I got connected with a big bunch of stampers recently via Facebook for a big event today, the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! Chaitali Narla and Amy Tsuruta are the creators of this event which should prove to be a lot of fun for everyone involved! Check it out HERE! Everyone in the hop today is creating with a coffee theme in mind. Each participant was asked to have a little fun by answering a few coffee questions…1. When did you start drinking coffee? I actually started drinking coffee within the last 5 years when I discovered just how yummy all those wonderful creamers are! You know how some people drink coffee black? I drink my coffee beige! LOVE me my creamer!
2. What is favorite brand? We live within 5 miles of the world headquarters of the J.M. Smucker Company, the makers of wonderful jams and jellies as well as many other products including Folgers. And, since we own stock in Smuckers too, I drink Folgers. In the morning I have Morning Cafe K-cups, and if I have coffee in the evening, I drink Folgers decaf.
3. What is the most amazing coffee that you had? Honestly, nothing comes to mind.
4. If I don't drink my needed coffee, I will... While I do enjoy a giant cup or two in the mornings, I can also get by without it, so no biggie if I don’t have any. Diet Coke will suffice if I really need some caffeine. :)
So, enough coffee chit-chat… here’s my card.
I used one of my most favorite coffee stamp sets, the Be a Barista set from Reverse Confetti. It’s such a fun set. The papers I used are from a Doodlebug 6x6 paper pad, and my card layout is this week’s Sweet Sunday Sketch #238. I also used the Colour Me challenge #39 for this week. And finally, Linda’s Catered Crop Recipe Swap challenge for this week is Seeing Red. So I worked plenty of red into my card today, as you can see in my patterned papers. :) Be sure to stop over at Linda’s blog for all the Catered Crop challenge details!
