Robyn Jordan - Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - 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?"  

2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop: Day 2 - Card 1:  My inspiration today is Robyn Jordan's 's project from her Fall Debut as a new Design Team member for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers.  Loved the fantastic layout, the colors, layering and embellishments.  The bow was a concern because I don't usually use bows since they are outside my comfort zone … but thought I could do this ... and I did. 

Thank you, Robyn.
