Whew! Finally Finished...I Think

Yes, I have another project for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop here. You still have time to join in btw! Huge thanks to everyone involved in organizing and donating prizes, and in commenting and providing inspiration! It's always a blast!


Here's my final project for the hop (I think). It's a bookmark made with wood paper (not woodgrain, actual veneer) and uses the Hero Arts digital Caffeine Fix stamps here.



I opened the cup in my photo editing software and added the words "Coffee" and "Now" to the cup. Then I printed it in black and white and colored with my Prismacolor pencils. Then I added a pumpkin from some patterned paper and added the steam with a white roller ball pen. The yellow seam binding ribbon is from Latina Crafter and is the perfect color for my cup! 



Happy Hopping and thanks for stopping by!
