I Love You & Coffee

















My old PC, purchased in 2007, was replaced this week with a new Dell using Windows10. This means I am experiencing a learning curve. I am disappointed to discover that the spacing on Blogger is now askew. It's always something!

The November Challenge #295 at Brown Sugar begins today as does the The Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! Join in to be eligible for some great fun! In addition, Challenge #42 at Double Trouble is up and running today through Sunday, November 17, 2019.

For Coffee Lovers I need a warm beverage (coffee, tea, cider, cocoa), for Brown Sugar I need to use certain digital images from DRS Designs and the Double Trouble Challenge has three elements:
Thing 1 (required): Use stitching
Thing 2 (optional): Include a warm beverage
Thing 3 (optional): Submit the project to the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop

I downloaded the digital images, resized, printed, colored and fussy cut them. The leaves, mug, pumpkin and acorns are digitals. I removed the digital poinsettia on the mug. I colored the mug with Copic markers. Two stitched panels were adhered to a white card base then the digital images were adhered with foam tape. The hearts were punched from cardstock. The inside was decorated with the digital acorns and word dies, combined to say, "I love you & coffee."

Be sure to visit all three blogs to play along with them:
