Coffee Blog Hop for National Coffee Day!

Happy National Coffee Day!!
I'm super excited to be joining this blog hop and hope you'll join in on the fun!
for my Creative Blog Hop post click HERE

And here's my coffee loving project!!

Lawn Fawn Argyle Backdrops, Lawn Fawn Love You A Latte, Lawn Fawn Love You S'more.
Lawn Fawn Tag You're It, Simon Says Stamp inks, Distress Inks, copics, Lawn Fawn Trimming

I used a Silhouette cut file to make this cute Keurig Cup holder perfect for gift giving!
I stamped the background before assembling and white heat embossed the tag.
Added some morning sunshine colors to the tag and adhered the sweet little squirrel
with a cup o' joe!

Here's a side view...

And in case you wanted to learn more about me and my addiction to coffee...

1. When did you start drinking coffee? 
My first sip was in preschool.  I remember my dad with his cup that smelled sooooo good, but when I took my first sip I couldn't believe it didn't taste like how it smelled! I was not a coffee lover until nursing school!  It was the only way to survive 12-16 hour shifts!!

2. What is favorite brand (you can name up to three). 
I don't have a favorite brand, as long as it isn't watery I'll drink it!  I do love a good k-cup and love my Keurig machine!!

3. What is the most amazing coffee that you had? Remember where and when?
I love french pressed coffee and there's a place here called Tangos that makes thee BEST!

4. If I don't drink my needed coffee, I will...
Usually not function well during the day.  I'm forgetful, more quiet and definitely more sluggish.  It just takes one filled mug for me to get me through the day!!

Did you hear there are prizes from these fabulous places....

I hope you'll join us!!

And that's a wrap!  Mahalo for stopping by!!
