2015 Winter/Holiday Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!!!

HolidayCoffeeLoversBH_Logo

I hear those coffee pots brewing, the frothers frothing,
and cups, they're clinking!!! 
Oh yes, it is time for another coffee/tea/cocoa celebration!!! 
All the fun began this morning at the official blog here so, after you take a looky-loo at my card, dash over there for a peek at all the fabulous sponsors, and the start of the Holiday Coffee Lovers gallery!

I can hardly wait to share the card I've made - yes, it is in the mail to our fierce and talented leader, amy T. =]  It all began with a little trek to Toronto in November, a few visits to Starbucks, and nice baristas who were happy to share a few extra bags!

 
Card size:  5x7 inches;  embossed.
and a little #Winnie & Walter Cheers cut from a sleeve... perfect!

Holiday cheers to all my coffee loving friends - you tea girls will have to wait until the 15th to see how I've honored you but, I promise,  it is going to be fun!
