Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Day 8

Hello, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to welcome two new followers - Tina Rathbone and Lisa - thank you for joining me!  

Today is Day 8 - the last day! - of the Fall Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop! So sad to see it end! I've really enjoyed myself!  If you haven't joined yet, then you had better hurry! The linky is open until 11:59 p.m. Pacific tonight (Friday, October 2).

Today's card features a cute critter from Deedee's Digis - Fall Warm-up. I used the pre-coloured version because it already looks so cute!  I mounted it on a brown square and popped up with foam tape.  


The kraft panel is embossed with Darice - Leaves Assorted Patterns.  I've used this EF a lot during the hop! As for the coffee words, I had two left-over pieces from yesterday's card, where I stamped a coffee text stamp repeatedly in Versamark ink on a kraft panel.  I won this stamp from Hetty in one of the previous Coffee Lovers' Blog Hops (thank you, Hetty!). 

I stamped a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps - Everyday Moments in Ancient Page - Chocolate and then added several tiny brown gems and a couple metallic leaves.

Super cute, love how you used your scraps, and love that tiny golden leaf, How fun!

Oh, Kitty, you recycled so well your scraps!! The little panel with the stamp seems a patterned paper of some brand! And the embossed base with the leaves is just adorable, love it so much!! Well done!!! The cute critter is very fun and beautiful coloured! And the metallic leaves as embellishments are stunning!

Lisa said...

Cute! I think this is the first chipmunk I've seen... my grandma used to feed the chipmunks right out of her hand at camp... she sit in her chair with some food in her hand and they would climb right up into her lap.. sigh... I might need this stamp...

Heather D. ~ Fresh Brewed Designs said...

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Cute card-love the leave sequins. Somehow I don't think chipmonks need caffeine. They seem to do just fine without it.

Celeste Goff said...

Such a super sweet card! Love the little touches of glimmer and shine you added with the metallic finishes and that little coffee drinking critter is beyond adorable!

Michelle said...
