Create with Us – Papertrey Ink

In this challenge, the instructions are to take inspiration from all of the wonderful sneak peeks from the December Release.  You can’t use the exact stamps , of course, as they haven’t been released yet.  The inspiration can come from theme, colour, style or similar stamps and dies.  I chose to use one of Nicole’s projects as my inspiration.  I was struck by the simplicity, the colour scheme and most importantly the idea of creating movement.  Here is the inspiration from Nicole:

Coffee Lovers Bloghop Day 4

Is it possible that I am ahead of schedule in making coffee cards for the Coffee Lovers Bloghop?  I actually have two cards in the wings almost ready to be posted.  Mind you, I haven’t made all of my Christmas Cards yet.  That is how it goes.  Sometimes I have trouble thinking of what card to make, but in the process of making that first one, ten more ideas pop into my head and then I can’t stop making more coffee cards even though I need to be making Christmas Cards.

This card comes compliments of Simon Says Stamp……………………no really it was complimentary with my recent purchase from them.  How nice is that?  Actually I already used the coffee beans from this set on the Bean Hunting? card so I really getting my “no money’s worth” from this set.
