Hi, there!

It's time for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop!  You can use coffee, tea, and/or cocoa images for your project!  The hop starts November 30th and runs until December 7th.  Paper Sweeties has several coffee/tea/cocoa stamp sets available!  I used one of my favorities....Homemade with Love .  I also used the sweet gingerbread man die cut from the set ....Sweet Cuts-Sugar and Spice.  What a great opportunity to make a Christmas card for that special friend in your life who loves a hot beverage and sweet treats!  I'm entering my card over at Cupcake Inspirations.

And, a sale going on at Paper Sweeties

And, here is my card...

For my card, I started with a white card base and paired it with aqua and plaid paper from Carta Bella.  The bottom panel was embossed with a folder from SU.  The scallop border was die cut using the set Sweet Cuts-Sweet Borders.  The mugs and snowflake were die cut using the set Sweet Cuts-Homemade with Love.  The sentiment is from the same set Homemade with Love.  The gingerbread man is from the set Sweet Cuts-Sugar and Spice.  The scallop frame for the sentiment was die cut using Sweet Cuts-Rectangle Scallop Frames.  Sequins (Strawberry) to finish the card.

And, some sweet treats for my friend, Pat...

The candy canes and sentiment is from the set Stand Add on: Sweet Treats.
