Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop - Rewind


The Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop was tremendous with a record-breaking 1,218 entries!!  I'm still going through all the amazing projects and am so inspired by the creativity!!

Here's a rewind of the projects I created for the hop...do you have a favorite?

 


 
   
 

 

 


 





Simply Succulents

 I'm so glad the succulents are 'all the rage'.  Not only because they are beautiful and unique, but because they don't need a lot of water to grow (a green thumb I have not!)  My daughter got my husband and I on the succulent wagon and now that's the only plants (real and fake) that we have around the house!

 

 For my card, I used these wonderful succulent stamps/dies from Altenew called Indoor Garden.  I'd been holding off buying them, but couldn't wait any longer and bought it a couple weeks ago...I'm SO glad I did!  The sentiment is also from Altenew in the Faithful Feather set.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:

Hello!


 September is flying.  It seems that fall always seems to go faster than any time of the year for some reason.  Maybe because there's so many things to celebrate...like when the kids go back to school :)  My daughter is in college and I miss those days of getting "the list" of school supplies and school clothes (a folder and leggings took care of that this year!)  Still, it's a new school year filled with lots of learning to say 'hello' to!

 For my card I used the Reverse Confetti Hello Square Confetti Cuts cut from Brick cardstock.  The sweet worm, ruler, pencils and apples are from the Worm Wishes stamp set and coordinating dies.

Big Hugs

 We all need a big hug every once in a while.  Last week a group of my dear friends got together and we hadn't seen each other in a long time.  There were LOTS of big hugs going around and it was wonderful!  Hope you get a big hug today!

 

 For this simple card, I used several Distress Oxide inks to create the background.  The Big Hugs die and sweet little squirrels (Nuts About You) are from Neat & Tangled.
