The absolute deliciousness of fall

Friday September 15, 2017
 
I love playing along with the Coffee lovers blog hop.. I did during the summer and it was so much fun.
Now I am playing with the Fall Coffee Lovers bloghop
 
 It was a beautiful day in the pacific northwest so I took advantage of it and stamped a bunch of coffee related images and took them out to the deck and my Mission paints and painted.. After dinner I sat and watched TV and cut the images out.. Yup I don't have dies for everything..  I kept thinking I need to make a fall coffee card now.. HUM... So I sat down with my 16 oz. (second one today) coffee and pondered. Ok fall.. wreaths.. Ok I have a wreath die.. So I went in grabbed three brownish papers and using my Simon Says wreath die cut them out.. I layered them straddling the three colors but the background looked too plain so took my Ranger ink and just swished some color behind the wreath..then I adhered the wreath.. I then grabbed the leaves I fussy cut and added the two above and three below and the to go coffee cup which I added the cup with foam tape. Oh the leaves and coffee cup are also Simon Says. I felt I needed something above so grabbed the Queen and Co. goosebumps and added three black ones. The sentiment which plays perfect with the coffee theme is from Tech. Tues. they have awesome sentiments when I need them.
