2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop #8

This will be my last card for the bloghop as I have been called into work today.  I just received this background stamp from Picket Fence Studios and I wanted to use it.  I had bought their ghost stamp for Halloween that says “Let’s get sheet faced together”.  As it turned out, I never found the time to make the card and send it to the person I had in mind for it.  I didn’t want the same thing to happen with this stamp………………………………….so here it is………………………fresh from my mailbox.

The sentiment is from Verve Stamps, a company that I only knew about through them being a sponsor on the Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  I bought a number of their stamps on a close out sale.

The main coffee cup is from a recent Hero Arts Kit.  I had hoped to make more cards from this multi-image kit, but maybe next blog.
