Nuts About Coffee

Hello, everyone!  Happy National Coffee Day!  Today is also Day 7 of the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  That means there is only one day left if you want to join the fun!  I feel sad that it's coming to an end - this is my favourite hop!  Anyone can join this hop - you can read all about it here.


I'm still working on the little ATCs for my Pocket Letter!  An ATC measures 2.5" x 3.5" and I need nine of them to complete a Pocket Letter. For some crazy reason, I thought I could finish two Pocket Letters during this hop.  I guess I should have started earlier!


This adorable squirrel is from Your Next Stamp - Sandy Squirrel Autumn Greetings. I coloured him with Prismacolor pencils and then die-cut with the coordinating die.

Here are the other products used:
  • Dies:  Memory Box Pinpoint Rectangle Layers, Impression Obsession Oak Leaves, Coffee Word and Cup (unmarked)
  • Sentiment stamp:  Newton's Nook Sweetheart Tails
  • Patterned paper:  Doodlebug
  • Other:  Sparkly washi tape and heart gem from my stash

I was inspired by the colours for Challenge 48 at Your Next Stamp:




I would also like to support the following challenges: Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned PaperSeptember UE; Deep Ocean AG UE; DL.ART September Linky AG UE 1/d; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Just Keep On Creating AG UE; Mod Squad Falling Leaves 2/3; Not Just Cards September AG UE; Pile it On Autumn Colours/Theme UE; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday AG 2/5; Simon Says Stamp Work-It Wednesday Red, Orange Yellow, Brown 2/3; The Cat's Pajamas Fall Colours UE; The Outlawz Twisted Thursday AG 1/2; Through the Craftroom Door AG 2/2; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment wk1 2/5

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

So cute! I always do that... Plan for more and never make the total number of cards I want. I think it is because I get distracted too long on one project. I have been loving all of the different pocket cards you have made
