coffee...because adulting is hard!

2017 fall hop

Happy Sunday everyone! Welcome back to my blog to check out what I've been up to...

The Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop started Friday and it's always one of my favorite events of the year in blogland!!! Being a coffee lover AND Fall colors lover, this is so much creative inspiration for me (plus, I always increase my coffee stamps/dies stash a little every year seeing everyone's amazing cards! lol) and I love hopping through to see it all!

For my card today, I used the oh-so-awesome But First Coffee set from Echo Park and some yummy plaid paper from Your Next Stamp

I left this card very CAS as I love the plaid and that sentiment and cup are what I wanted to be the main focus - added a few gumdrops and wa-laaaa! Done.....

If you haven't checked out the hop, you really, really should - it's amazing!  Click HERE to start at the beginning and see all the wonderful Sponsors and Super Sponsors! Happy crafting!
