Coffee, Tea Or Prizes


I'm linking up my first project for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop today. I've been part of this fun group since the beginning and it's always a blast. I'm a tea drinker and though I love the smell of coffee, I just don't drink it. But I am a die-hard-gotta-have-my-cuppa so I fit in this group just fine :)



I'm using the fun digital kit from Hero Arts called Caffeine Fix and I just printed three sizes together so I could use this sentiment stamp that I won from Jennifer at Caffeinated Papercuts at one of these hops! She also gave me the striped newspaper paper in the background in a set of 6x6 papers from Prima called Coffee Break.



If you want to join in the hop anytime between now and October 2, 2015, you can create a coffee, tea or cocoa project and link it up here to try to win! If you need some stamps, you can always buy these digis from a2z Scrapbooking and get started instantly. They're here and they're just $6.99 for the digi set of 12. I'm not a huge digi girl, but I do buy some stamps so I can color and size them any way I want.



Hope you join in! Just keep to the fall theme and the coffee/tea/cocoa theme and you're good. I tried to mimic the sky with distress inks here in Ohio during September, it's absolutely gorgeous. Not cloudy, not washed out by the sun, just clear, beautiful blue. I made the cups some of the autumn leaf colors that we see here too, with my Prismacolor pencils.

Happy Friday,
Chark
