Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Double Strength Venom Latte

I'm excited to be participating in the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop!  You can join in as well - check it out here!

When I first saw the Fall theme - I thought leaves and pumpkins - but then my thoughts turned to Halloween!!!  So here we have Double Strength Venom Latte a special coffee served only during the Halloween season!  I black embossed the venom sentiment  from Wanda's Pantry by Waltzingmouse
on the cup sleeve.
I die cut the Fresh Brewed cup pieces out of brown, orange and red  Core-dinations Krat Core papers - that I then sanded so some of the kraft showed through.  I also sponged the edges with Ranger Distress Ground Espresso Ink (how appropriate!)   I got the bat diecut as a free gift with an order I got from Funkie Junkie Boutique - (Linda includes a little envelope of fun free 'stuff' with every order you get from her shop!) How perfect that, it too, had been cut from the kraft core paper!
The little silver spider and web charm was another free gift I got in an order from Funkie Junkie.  I dropped some Espresso Adirondack Alcohol Ink on it to color it a bit.
The background panel is a piece from Idea-ology Paper Stash - Regions Beyond - a super fun pack of Halloween designs!
Hope to see you over at the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop -  there are TONS of super prizes to be won!  The hop runs from 9/25/15 - 10/2/15!
