Coffee Lovers Bloghop Day 2 Card

Well, I am trying to catch up on my card submissions for this bloghop. This card was fairly easy to put together. I have had this stamp for awhile, but couldn’t use it for the last coffee bloghop as I couldn’t justify the mittens in a summer themed bloghop. Well actually, I live in Canada so I could totally justify mittens in a summer themed hop. I can guarantee you that there is not a Canadian month safe from needing mittens.

The cable knit embossing folder is also an ancient item from my stash. Indeed, I have a much newer 3D cable knit embossing folder, but I liked the way this more subtle one lets the girl and the knit wrapped coffee be the stars of the show.

Take a look:

Coffee Lovers Bloghop Fall/Winter 2020

I am so far behind in the cards I want to make, it is shocking. I have gotten some wonderful new stamps and dies and just haven’t had time to put them to work. The worst thing is that I have many cards that I did make with specific people in mind and somehow their special day came and went and I never got the cards mailed. And yet, I complain of Covid fatigue, and of not being able to get out and do things when I want to. I fear that some percentage of drive/motivation has been permanently lost due to the pandemic. YIKES!

I am also behind with posting cards in the Coffee Lovers Bloghop Fall/Winter 2020. This is my very first card and it is already Day 3 of the bloghop. I love this bloghop and all the people who continue to come up with amazing cards that all have the Coffee/tea/Hot Chocolate/cider theme embedded within them.

I am truly hoping to be able to catch up and post my usual card a day during this Bloghop week. Meanwhile take a look at my first card, using stamps and dies from Honey Bee.

This little cafe reminds me of Angel’s Cafe in Edworthy Park in Calgary, AB It is a great place to stop after a long walk along the Bow River.
