Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Good morning friends!!! 

I have a very exciting post for you today and it's all about COFFEE!! I just started drinking coffee regularly about 3 years ago. I could just never acquire a taste for it but now I really enjoy it. 

I am participating in a Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop where lots and lots of creative friends are going to share their love of coffee or any other holiday drinks with you for those that don't drink coffee. The creator of this amazing blog hop is Amy Tsuruta is you can see her blog here

I decided to go a little crazy and make three different projects for you today. I created a card, gift tag and a gift card holder. I used a lot of the same papers, stamps and inks. I hope you enjoy all of them. 

My card is made using some dies from Simon Says Stamp. My background paper is using 2 different  stamps and the coffee cup is a die all from My Creative Time.  I just love the sentiment and how the card turned out altogether. 

My shaker tag is used making the absolute cutest paper from Simple Stories called Cozy Christmas. All of the patterns and colors are just amazing. I used a tag die from Pretty Pink Posh and the sentiment is from a stamp set from My Creative Time. The adorable coffee cup is from a stamp set I bought last month and I just love it!! You can find it here at Ms. Kimm Creates store! It's simply just adorable! 

I think this gift card holder is my favorite of the three. It just turned out so cute and I can't wait to give it to a friend for Christmas. The papers are from Simple Stories, tag die from Pretty Pink Posh and sentiments from My Creative Time. The idea for the gift card holder is from Kim O'Connell and you can find her blog here

I am so happy to be a part of this amazing and fun blog hop! This is open to anyone that wants to join  and link up with your creations as well. Below I have listed all of the amazing sponsors for this and the prizes that are being given away.
