Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

The a-maz-ing Amy Tsuruta has put together a Holiday Edition Coffee Lovers Blog hop and I do love my coffee fix in the morning, so I couldn't resist linking up!  Follow the links to hop and see some fabulous inspiration!!

I used this month's SFYTT at Reverse Confetti and stamped up the Be a Barista Stamp set - a sweet latte set for all you lovers of hot concoctions!!

The circles were die cut using the Fresh 'n Fruity Confetti Cuts and I used the Double Edge Scallop Border.

The sentiment was stamped with Pure Poppy ink and is from the Seasonal Sentiments stamp set.

I used my beautiful gold thread - so shimmery - as steam - you can imagine it right?!  And those Pretty Pink Posh sequins add just the right detail…..

Thanks for visiting today for the hop!

Color Throwdown - with deepest thanks....

Good morning - I had a chance to play in this week's Color Throwdown challenge -some gorgeous retro colours AND I was on time this week yay me!  All I needed was a great sketch - and this week Freshly Made Sketches caught my eye.

I decided to ink up my new Reverse Confetti goodies - I can't get enough of this stamping company!

Here is the beautiful Color Swatch for this week..... and the sketch..

I decided not to go in the Christmas direction today......lots of time for that right? right??!!....but instead made a thank you card.

Using the Love Notes Confetti Cuts, along with the Pretty Panels Chevron  and Class Act Confetti Cuts, I cut my dies using Papertrey Ink's Pure Poppy, Raspberry Fizz and Hawaiian Shores cardstock.

I used the Doin' The Wave Confetti Cuts in Hawaiian Shores and New Leaf cardstock for my "water ripples".

A few swipes of Wink of Stella on the sweet little submarine and some Pretty Pink Posh Marshmallow sequins and I was on my way to the golf course!
