Winter Wishes...Winter Coffee Lovers Hop

 Hello there coffee loving friends!  Today is Day 2 of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I have a fun project to share with you today.  In my quest to find tons of coffee goodies (tasty samplings and inky goodies) for this hop last week, I happened upon the most fabulous discovery!  I was driving home with a car full of Trader Joe's coffee flavored products and I passed by the most GLORIOUS RED LIGHT shining in a shop window.
 Now, I couldn't pass by could I???  So I pulled into the parking lot, picked up some tasty treats and drove all the way home with the aroma of fresh baked goodies teasing and taunting me.
 When I finally got home, I tore into that box and ate SIX of the 12 doughnuts. JUST.LIKE.THAT!  I felt a wee bit guilty so I saved the other half of the box for the next day.  The next day, I ate the other six with a fresh cup of yummy coffee to wash it all down and thought...hmmm...That box looks mighty beautiful!  Too beautiful to just throw away!  Soooo...I got my trusty scissors and started cutting away.  I knew I would have some paper treasures to use on my projects!
Look at all those pieces!  Perfect for cards, wintery projects and gift giving.  That's exactly what I used them for!
You can see that I used part of the box for the background scene.  It was a perfect snowy scene and it went well with the Mokka Pot that I just had to color match!  And this stamp was a steal too!  Remember that DOLLAR DEAL at Whimsy Stamps?  Well, That's it!  WOO!
I hope you enjoy this little recycled treat!  I've got more too!  Just you wait.  

Please stop back tomorrow for my weekly Sunday Sip And Share post feature for Coffee Loving Cardmakers.  I'll be sharing another fun sketch and a tasty treat!  See you then.

PS...As a Super Sponsor of this hop, I've got another new project on my Fun Stampers Journey Blog. You might want to check it out over HERE.    

See you around in the hop!

    1. I had to really force myself to not eat the WHOLE box! It was really hard. The mug was irresistible too. It's the perfect Christimas mug this year. Very good quality too! :)
