Kathy Schweinfurth - Coffee Lovers BlogHop - More of the Same Inspiration

MY INSPIRATION:  For the past few years I have been a big fan and entrant of the Coffee Lovers Seasonal Blog Hops.  There is so much inspiration within this Blog Hop that I decided to pay tribute to the Design Team.  I have selected one post from the 2017 Fall and/or Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop for each Design Team member.  Each has provided me inspiration for creating my card for the 2018 Fall/Winter Blog Hop. 

Amy Tsuruta, Founder and Hostess, demonstrated innovation when she developed the Coffee Blog Hop.  Her vision has created a firestorm of coffee-inspired challenges and merchandise across the globe.  Her dedication and hard work in keeping the challenge alive and fun for all of us fanatics in paper crafting and coffee addicts does not go unappreciated.  Thank you, Amy! 

BLOG CANDY:  In the past I won a coffee mat as Blog Candy and I love it.  I searched online to find that coffee mat and much to my surprise there it was along with others.  I have several new mats that you can win by random draw along with a Spellbinders die. All you have to do is link a coffee card to the Double Trouble Challenges and make a comment. You can decide to participate in one or both challenges as long as you meet the guidelines for these challenges: 

Starts Nov 30 - Dec 2) Fall/Winter "Sweet Treat"  
Comment "What's your favorite Sweet Treat during the Holidays" 

(Starts Dec 3 - Dec 7) Embossing-Dry/Heat/Paste 
Comment:  "What's your favorite hot/cold drink?"  

Check out Double Trouble's Challenge, Click on Frank Sinatra's The Coffee Song and it will pull you right into the mood of creating coffee projects and don't stop it at the coffee song...listen on.   

2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop: Day 3 - Card 2:  My inspiration continues this afternoon with Kathy Schweinfurth's project from the 2018 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop creating another one of my Christmas wreaths, but using a stack of cups.  And still in my stash, a couple more Christmas wreaths which will be completed for my Christmas mailings with another theme.  

Thank you, Kathy
