This is probaably my final card for the winter bloghop, otherwise no one will be getting either Christmas cards or gifts from me this year.
This card was a last minute thought, and it turned out to be one of my favorites. I will use it together with a gift basket of coffee related items for a coffee loving friend.
Today I combined four different stamp sets to create this little “Coffee Mirage” scene. I am always happy when I pull out one of my first stamp sets and use it again. Justifies, why I just grow my huge collection and never de-stash. Anyway, I know that we are to combine coffee with winter as the theme for the bloghop. So it is winter in my desert scene, but how do I show it? By making the coffee cup look like the new Starbucks Winter Cup, that is how.
Take a look:
I got a new (to me) coffee stamp set specifically for the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop. It even came in the mail on time which is a miracle in itself. Did I use it today, though? No. Why? Because I also recently got the slider die set from Lawn Fawn and I am having so much fun with it, that I wanted to do a coffee card with it. The size of the images on my Jane’s Doodles Coffee Time set were just the right size.
Here is the card…………………..prepare for CUTENESS OVERLOAD!

I was introduced to this group the last time they had a blog hop. With over 50 sponsors, I thought I had a good chance of winning a prize, but no, somehow my number did not come up. I was lucky though as I saw Jane’s Doodles cards for the first time. Now being the proud owner of a Jane’s Doodles stamp set, here is my entry to the blog hop.
