I'm sure that by now most of you have heard about or come across one of the Coffee Lovers Bloghops over the last year and now they have their own blog and design team dedicated to all things coffee - Coffee Loving Cardmakers!
I confess that I have never taken part in one of the hops (purely because I was never organized enough) but I'm happy to say that I'm playing along with the current Holiday Coffee Lovers Bloghop! All of us on the Skipping Stones Design Team are joining in the fun with some fabulous SSD coffee images.
The hop will run from December 11 - December 18 starting at 6am Pacific Time.
The theme for the hop is Winter/Holiday and because National Cocoa Day and International Tea Day you can use coffee, tea and/or coca images.
Skipping Stones Design is a Super Sponsor and will be giving away a $20 gift certificate. There will also be 2 flash prizes given away for those who link up before December 15.
I used three different Skipping Stones Design sets for my card - Funny Coffee Volume 1 (coffee cup), Sassy Snow (snowflakes) and Christmas Swirls (sentiment). I think it's pretty self explanatory - few things make me more joyful than a hot caramel latte on a cold winter's morning! :)
