Coffee Lovers Fall Blog Hop - Take 2


How is the weather in your town? 
Let me say the last few days have NOT been fall like.   
The temperature almost his 100 degrees yesterday.   UGH
But wait... that is not even a record.

I hope fall gets here soon because I am tired of the heat.  
And of course I love that fall weather.   
I think my coffee even taste better in the cooler months.  

Maybe my project today will help bring some fall like weather to Norther California\

I'm sure every paper crafter has a pile of scraps
Every time I sit at my craft space I stare at a growing mound.  
I have vowed to try to use up a bunch of that pile before the end of the year.  

For today's project I incorporated some of those scraps.

My card is a very basic and simple design.
I did find this cool paper at the craft store recently fell in love with it.  
and then.... cut it to make more scraps...LOL

Live, Laugh, Love... 
something we all need to do more of each day.

Basically I used one of my shape die sets to cut out the background and the stitched edges,  Distressed the edges with a little black and brown inks
 and found a couple scraps that I liked together.  

I wanted to pull in the stitched edging from the background so I just used one of the smaller dies. 

 The little coffee cup and the Smile die cut is from the Greeting Farm. 
 They arrived in the mail just in time. 

That is it for me today.  

Thank you for visiting.


I will be entering this card in the following challenges.
