Thanks a Latte - Double Trouble Challenge #97-A participating in the 2021 Coffee Lovers Fall/Winter Blog Hop

Thing 1:  Trouble Maker 
says, "Rise and GRIND, throw on a TEAshirt and sweats, grab your MUG and search through your stash for CrAFFIENATING Coffee, Tea, and Cocoa favorites (papers, stamps, dies, stencils, folders, etc).  Keep GROUNDED, no ProCAFFEINATING, and create a Coffee Lover's project using any theme. Here is my FIRST card." 

This is my card for the Double Trouble "DeJa-Brew" kicking off the start of the 2021 Coffee Lover's Fall/Winter Blog Hop and using Twisted Sister's Optional Twist to use the Try Stampin' on Tuesday's Sketch #532.  

The sketch is CAS so kept pretty much to the sketch.  I love the mix of patterns... so my choice of design papers were a Toffee striped background with two other patterns in Glacier, layered each with Toffee cardstock and adhered to card base.  

Chose to change the tab to a cute little Hedgehog... stamped and colored with Copic pens in Browns and Glacier for the scarf. Stamped a second Hedgehog, colored the scarf only, fussy-cut and adhered with 3D thin foam tape for dimension.  Stamped and colored the Coffee To Go Cup and adhered with glue between the paws. A sentiment was stamped, edged with Toffee Ink and adhered with 3D thin foam tape.  On the inside stamped several To Go Cups along border.

So cute! I love how you've used the hedgehog for the tab. Wonderful idea and the colors are great.

Oh my gosh, how creative and adorable to use the hedgie as the tab element! Love my coffee and cute critters.

How adorable...a bundled up little hedgie!! Maybe a little safer to handle all wrapped up with that scarf, too. :)
Thanks for the chance to win blog candy!
Have a lovely day!
