Fun with Friends Coffee Hop

Today, some stampers have gotten together for a super fun coffee hop. Working for Starbucks for the last 15 years, of course I had to play along!  Chaitali Narla has a Linky over on her blog, Cuts, Crops & Creativity, so everyone who wants to join in can!  There are tons of prizes to be won too!  [That is always the fun part, right?]

I used a deboss technique with my embossing folder inked up for my background, and used the only coffee cup I have from There She Goes, Let's Get Together.  [To find this set, you will have to Google it since TSG is OOB].  Went a tad crazy with the super bright green, but that is the way I work!

Virginia suggested we answer a few coffee questions:

When did you start drinking coffee?  I was 16 and "cool"
Do you have a favorite brand of coffee?  You betcha - Starbucks Verona.
Have you ever had an amazing cup of coffee?  I had some Christmas Blend that my mil had a few years ago -- LOVED it, have no idea who made it ;(
What happens if you don't get your coffee?  I get a huge caffeine headache and I am exhausted! [No addiction here folks! :)]

I also needed some Thank You cards for my customers.  Because I need quite a few, I kept it really simple.


Now, grab your cup of Joe, and pop on over to the hop to play along, or just have some fun looking at coffee cards!


Thanks for stopping by~

Love those cute coffee cards. I am pretty much a plain coffee drinker but when we did have a coffee shop I did like to order what we called a "light latte" which was made sugar free and with skim milk. It was delicious and I wish that coffee shop was still in the business.
