Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!

Hello, friends!  Happy National Coffee Day!  (Best. Day. Ever.  Just sayin.')

I'm here today to take part in the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop sponsored by Chaitali.  Can I just say, I think this is BRILLIANT?!?!

Not only will there be lots of amazing coffee-themed cards (as if that is not awesome enough), there will also be prizes!  Prizes, people!  Not only will there be flash giveaways (see details HERE), but random winners from the hop participants will win coffee-themed goodies from these amazing sponsors (you can see exact prize offerings at Chaitali's blog):


So, here's a little bit of MY coffee history.

I started drinking coffee when I was a senior in college.  It was more like chocolate milk...a flavored coffee powder that came in a cute little tin (see below).  My first coffee pot was a wedding gift in 1995...a Farberware percolator!  (Loved that pot!) Now I drink Maxwell House brand coffee -- it is my all time favorite.  I'd rather make my own coffee and bring it with me in a travel mug than spend money on big-name coffees at local shops.  I love my Maxwell House!  I need my coffee in the morning to get started, and again at 3PM to make it through the second shift of the day.  I do like lots of milk in there...and sugar, too.


My card features stamps from the Precious Remembrance Shop called "Coffee Love."  I adore this set! I paper-pieced my card using papers from Pebbles "Front Porch" paper pad.


So, be sure to check out the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop and play along for your chance to win some cool coffee-themed prizes!  If you need some inspiration, check out my Pinterest board dedicated to coffee cards (yes, I love coffee that much).


I'm also linking my card to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes. 

Thanks for stopping by...now I'm off to grab a cup of coffee and check out some other blog hop cards!  What a fun day we have ahead of us! :)
