Goodmorning Caffeinated Crafty Friends!

The challenge for the

So sad it is the last day of the

This card is made with one of the free snowman printables
from the Ko-fi shop. The cute Santa in the cup is from the
Winter Club and the sentiment is a stamp from Stampin'Up!
embossed in white.

These cute snowmen came as freebies last night
and you could get them if you are a follower of Paulette's
Ko-fi shop. I made the sentiment with the computer and the background
is an embossing folder. Just could not resist to make this one for last.

And thanks to Paulette, I can share the wonderful 
coffee snowman as a freebie with you.
Of course Paulette whould love to see you at her

23 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - day 7


Hello Caffinated Crafty Friends,

Here I am with two more cards for the 

I made two cards with images from Paulette.
She has a wonderful shop where you can buy her images,
but there are also freebies if you look well.
These snowman are free if you go here:

The snowman background is the freebie, but the coffee mug
cam in the November Club. Each month there is a club with
a bunch of images 3x a day for 10 days for a small amount.
The sentiment I made up with the computer.
The second card has a little trick to it. The sentiment here is 
a stamp by Marianne Design. The background is embossed.

The trick is when you extend the coffee mug, you get another
sentiment (by Newtons Nook stamps).

Tomorrow is the last day,
hope you come and see what I have
come up with......nothing yet, so a 
surprise for me too!

Thank you for looking today
and have a caffinated crafty day.
