What's Brewing ? ,, A Coffee Lover's Bloghop !!



Happy International Coffee Day :-)
 I think it was a national one for the USA but we're making it International now ;-)

 Have you heard about a hop, especially for dedicated coffee lovers over on Chaitali’s blog ?? what a fun idea !! :-)  There are lots of fabulous prizes on offer too !! :-)



I thought that the   Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit  would be  PERFECT to use for the hop !!

I used the word stamps in the set to make a sort of subway art background, generation stamping with the Khaki ink that also came in the kit.

Cappuccino anyone ?? :-)


 I am going to hop and see what other peeps have made too, you can make a card, link and join in too !! It's open to all :-)

We have 3 fun questions to answer
1. When did you start drinking coffee?  
 I think I must have been around 15 or 16 when I started drinking instant coffee (ugh) but started drinking the proper yummy coffee when I was about 18.

2. What is favorite brand?
 I don't really have a favourite brand but I do love strong espresso/cappuccino.  For coffee in cafe's I especially like Costa's or Cafe Nero

3. What is the most amazing coffee that you had? Remember where and when?
  I can't remember the best, but I can remember the worst, in a local cafe here in Gozo, weak as dishwater ,,,,, :-)

4. If I don’t drink my needed coffee, I will…
go back to bed.....  :-)

Lots of FABULOUS sponsors,, loads of lovely crafty goodies to be won !!! :-)


Go make a card for National Coffee Day, upload it to the linky on Chaitali’s blog
then grab a cuppa coffee and get hoppin' ! :-)

Thanks for the support on my blog! I love your card and I love the idea of using the sentiments as subway art! Did you use khaki paper to ink them on?
