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' ! :-)

House Mouse 'Autumn/Fall' or Anything Goes

 Hi all :-) I'm here with a reminder  for the theme this fortnight over on the House Mouse and Friends Challenge Blog. This week the lovely Heather chose 

as always you can choose the Anything Goes option, just remember to use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image.

I think this cute little fella is perfect to sent to anyone in need of a hug :-) This stamp is a wood one called Cuddlebug and isn't available in cling ,,, yet,,, lets hope Stampendous make this one in cling soon too ;-)

I coloured with copics and used white glitter ritz for the buds,, they almost look real !! :-) I die cut the quite large 'hugs' from black shrink plastic and added some of Tim Holtz Linen Ribbon and a few sequins to finish. 

and this is the inside,, 
this card has gone to a very special friend XXX thinking of you XXX

 thanks for looking :-) We hope you will all join in with the challenge, the more the merrier :-)
