Coffee Lover? YUP!

Happy National Coffee Day!  This could possibly be my new favorite holiday because I'm a coffee addict.  Hot, iced, blended...you name it, I like it!  In fact, I'm sitting here drinking my very first coffee of the morning.  Coffee being what it is to so many of us, Chaitali and Amy decided to arrange a Coffee Lovers Bloghop!  As soon as I heard about it, I was on board.  How could I pass up celebrating coffee?  First up, a few fun questions posed by Virginia Lu:

1. When did you start drinking coffee?

I hated HATED coffee for the longest time but then while attending US Air Force Academy, I was introduced to, Trina, the most amazing barista ever.  My love of coffee began with Milky Way mochas and caramel lattes.  I was hooked and it was all downhill from there. 

2. What is your favorite brand (you can name up to three).

I have a Nespresso machine because that has been the best coffee I have found to brew at home.  While I'm out and about, I will RUN to a Caribou Coffee or Starbucks.  ;)

3. What is the most amazing coffee that you had? Remember where and when?

I have never ever had a coffee drink that has compared to Trina's.  I love just about anything coffee but if I could have a Milky Way mocha made by Trina again, I'd be in heaven!  

4. If I don't drink my needed coffee, I will...

Ummm...we don't even want to ponder this question.  It scares me just thinking about it.

Such fun!  I hope you are having fun on the hop and have checked out the sponsors for this hop as well as the fun giveaways and prizes.  What an amazing hop!  Are you ready for my card?

 
I just got this awesome Verve Coffee set a couple weeks ago and I couldn't wait to make a card with it.  I used the Cuppa Joe dies to cut out my coffee cup and colored it with copics.  I layered my mug on two stripes I cut out of glitter tape.  My sentiment is the Coffee Word die from Verve which I cut out several times in both kraft and a coordinating teal cardstock.  I stacked all the dies to give me a fun layered sentiment.  I stamped the adorable steam coming out of my mug with Versamark to finish off the card.   

I hope you enjoyed my card and will come join us on the Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  I can hardly wait to get hopping and see all the amazing creations!  See you on the hop!
