Fa La La La Latte

Hi, everyone!  Welcome back to the fifth day of the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! This is my second post today. We would love to see you over there with your winter/holiday projects using images of coffee, tea, or cocoa! The hop runs from December 11 to 18 and anyone can join!


I am back again today to share a card featuring the adorable Coffee Cup Cat from By Miss Rach. By the way, this adorable kitty is available as a freebie here, along with the Christmas Cocoa Cat and Teacup Kitten (scroll way down for the Teacup Kitten).  I just love kitties, and I think this one is precious! And I love that she's holding a coffee! I coloured this cutie with Prismacolor pencils and added Elizabeth Crafts Warm Diamond glitter on her cap.  


The die-cut trees are Memory Box Evergreen Landscape and I added the same Elizabeth Crafts Warm Diamond glitter along the snow and on the trees. The background was embossed with Taylored Expressions Snowfall embossing folder and sanded to reveal the white core of the cardstock.  The fun sentiment is from STAMPlorations - Caffeinated Christmas (designed by the awesome Becca Cruger - I won this set - thank you, Shery!). I heat-embossed it in white on a hand-cut banner. I added a green scalloped border along the bottom (Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Borders).

Hey, Kitty? FT?... I'd like to send you something and while I'd rather it was a surprise, I suppose it can't be because I don't have your address. If you don't mind, can you email me your mailing address? My email is bzscrapper66@gmail.com. If not, that's ok too...

You created a wonderful winter scene Kitty, I really like that line of pine trees in the background... the addition of the glitter was a great idea. I love the sentiment that goes along with the image too, so cute!

Andrea Ockey Parr said...

This is such a charming little card! I think I've told you before that I have a rough history with cats, but your adorable cards make me look past my feline issues! LOVE how this little kitty has such a happy expression and how it's keeping toasty with latte. So clever to combine coffee with the holidays! Love the bright pops of blue, too, and those white trees in the background could not be more perfect! Kudos to another fine creation and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
