BFF & Coffee - 2015 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Saturday, October 3, 2015

Well once again I almost ran out of time to play in the Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  For the past six weeks I've been caring for my mom after she had hip surgery.  While I did manage to bring some stamping supplies with me, the time to stamp has been a little sparse.

But I did manage to get one card in tonight.  During the Spring hop, I was a lucky random winner and won six coffee stamp sets from Unity Stamps.  I had every intention of making about a dozen coffee cards for this hop, but, well, you know how best intentions go sometimes.  The stamp I used on this card is Unity Stamp's "Best Friend".

I don't really regret not playing more this week because if my mom didn't wind up having surgery, I wouldn't have had the past six weeks of time to spend with her seeing as we are normally about 400 miles apart - her in WV and me in central NC.  And while I know she would have rather we been able to spend this time in a much more pleasant way and a much less painful one for her, I know she has enjoyed me being with her.

So, on to my card--


I also had to design a new watermark tonight as my wonderful Mac laptop battery is way too old and my outlet cord chose this time to go kaput also. So, while I wait for a new cord to come (thankgoodness for Amazon Prime and 1 day delivery) I have to post this from my moms desktop.

Hopefully my design emulates a coffee wrap because that's what I was going for!  

Fall Coffee Loving Blessings!

Beautiful card, Nance! I love the silhouette image and how you cut the panel behind it to look like a coffee cup. Love your card as a whole since it really does make me think of a to-go coffee cup! Hope your mom is doing well with her recovery!
