winter coffee lovers blog hop


It's the most wonderful time of the year... give me a warm drink and Christmas carols and I'm a happy camper. Now if I could just get my cookies baked.

I saw this pin. And I made this card. A clear case for the CASE, eh? 


I couldn't resist. The STAMPlorations Christmas Trees stencil just had to be used to make a cloud of steam! I used embossing paste through the stencil. Heat embossed and fussy cut my tea cup from glossy red CS. Added some washi and a punny sentiment and voila! BTW, can you spot my faux pas?

Those super sweet little coffee beans scattered at the bottom of my panel. Do they belong on a "Merry ChrisTEAmas" card? Not so much.

Happy hopping! And happy holidays! May Santa bring you lots of your favorite tea. Or coffee.

I'm joining the fun at:

  22. So lovely! I like the idea of the steam Christmas tree. I read the pun as "ChriSTEAMas" When I first saw the card, so the beans could work lol. Either way, it's adorable.
