Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

I am so happy to be joining in on the Holiday Coffee Lovers Bloghop today!  I've been gathering my coffee stamps and ideas all month in preparation!  I've even got cards made for the National Cocoa Day on 12/13 and the International Tea Day on 12/15  all ready to go-  how fun is this month!
So here's my first Holiday Coffee Card
I used Kraft Ink on everything to coordinate with my super fun caramel latte sentiment that was designed by Becca (my fellow Teamie on the Mixed Media Card Challenge!)  for Stamplorations  - called Caffeinated Christmas.  I stamped it on a piece of patterned paper that I had adhered pom pom ribbon to on the edge.  The background panel is stamped with Yonder Star from WMS.
I added some metallic sequins, two little candy canes from Half Baked Gingerbread Joy from WMS that I stamped and cut out, and a cute wooden reindeer that I got at Michaels.  I knotted a piece of Cappuccino Twine around his neck!

There are LOTS of prizes to be won if you join in on the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog hop -  you'll find all the details here.

I'm also linking my card to the following challenges:

Love this! Everything works beautifully together on your card. The subtle color palette is lovely, and your sentiment is something I think we all can relate to, too! And that reindeer...he's the icing on the cake, or maybe I should say the crema on the latte! Love this one!! Bev
