A funny thing happened on the way to making this card. On the weekend I attended a local Scrapbook Crop. As usual, I took away too much stuff for a one day crop. Anyway, I must have pulled a muscle in my neck loading and unloading totes full of supplies. When I got up the next morning, my neck was incredibly stiff and sore, but hey, the cardmaking must go on. I took a muscle relaxant and applied a heating pad and began crafting this card. Well, don’t you know, I fell asleep with a full cup of coffee in my hand. The coffee fell out of my hand and into my box of coffee stamps and dies. Needless to say, that was quite a mess to clean up. On the bright side, I do have a large box of authentic Coffee “scratch n sniff” crafting supplies now.
I am happy to report that no cards were injured during this card-making session, and I was happy with this one.

I apologize for the poor photography.
I have made one more coffee card using the Kringle collection from Photoplay. This time I also wanted to use a “Coffee Charms” die set that I have from Karen Burniston. I finished the card off by adding a Polar Bear from Recollections who is looking up longingly at the string of coffee beverages. The sentiment is from Verve Stamps
It is the time of year for the winter version of the Coffee Lover’s Bloghop. It is also a busy time of year with Thanksgiving, Halloween and Christmas card making time all on the heels of each other.
This lead up is to explain my excuse for it being Day 3 of the Bloghop and I am just posting my first card. It is also Crop/retreat time and yesterday I attended one. I bought what I thought was a regular collection kit from Photoplay called Kringle. Once I ripped into it, I realized that it was actually a Christmas Card kit. That was an OOPS as I rarely buy card kits and my intention was to make coffee cards of my own design. Oh well, I found that it was a very cute collection and after making a few cards, I actually purchased the matching collection kit and ephemera so that I could make some additional Christmas cards.
Anyway, I think the coffee cards turned out well, and they will come in handy for giving out some coffee gift cards at Christmas time. The sentiment set is from My Favorite Things and is called Sassy Pants Holiday too. The original stamp has the word wine and I just substituted coffee for this occasion.
Here is the card:
