2015 Winter/Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Kraftin' Kimmie Sponsor

Oh hello there!  Hope you've been having a wonderful 
and not too hectic December so far!  I can't believe how fast
the time is whooshing by! It's crazy that soon it will
be a new year again.  Yikes!

Before that happens my favorite thing to do is find time
to have a cup of coffee with my friends and just celebrate
being together.  My son will be home for Christmas soon 
and he is a HUGE coffee fan (I started him quite early in 
life - accidentally of course).  I am looking forward to having 
a visit with him in our favorite coffee shop together and enjoying
one of their custom crafted and delicious latte creations!  
My heart beats happier just thinking about it! 

You might know that I am fortunate to be a Krafty Girl and design
for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps who is one of the fabulous sponsors of the

I made a card to share with you that celebrates my love of coffee
 and my son using ONE CUP AT A TIME from Kraftin' Kimmie
for the hop.  Take a look - I hope you like!
I stamped and colored the main image on a piece of 
kraft paper using copic markers and a white sharpie pen. 
The papers are by My Mind's Eye - Sleigh Ride
the snowflakes and dots are from Stampin' Up!
