{Stamp Simply} Caffeine!


Hi everyone!

I really wanted to join in with the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop that Amy has coordinated, especially because The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store is one of the sponsors!  WooHOO!!
Just look HERE to see Sharon's post and the AMAZING blog candy that she is giving away!


For my card today I was trying to keep the holiday feel and thought this sentiment from Verve's Better for You set was perfect.  Life gets busy around this time of year and I have had my share of coffee to help keep up... although my cup isn't nearly as cute as the one I paper pieced with Kaisercraft Mistletoe paper and embellished with a rhinestone.  I need to find one like that!  I stayed with the whimsical feel of the sentiment by using some huge polka dot paper behind my main layers, which were cut with Spellbinders Celebration Pierced Circle and Rectangle Dies.  LOVE those dies.  A lot.

So, how about a little blog candy from me if you've made it this far in the hop??  Just leave a comment to be in the draw and I'll pick someone to send a little grab bag of goodies from my craft room. : )  I'll draw a name the morning of the 15th, so be sure to check back!

Oh, a couple more details...  I used this week's SCS Sketch for my card & since this is one of my favorite Verve sets, I'm linking it to the Diva Dare, too!!

Here's my Stamp Simply Shopping List for today...
Spellbinders Celebrations Pierced Circles & Rectangles

Thanks for stopping by!
