Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2014

I don’t know about you, but I can barely open my eyes in the morning without my cuppa joe.  My fave drink is an Iced Coffee with three Splenda, Breve with extra cream, and no Classic.  The ladies at my local Starbucks pretty much have my order memorized when they see me coming through the door!  I love that!  During the holiday season, I sometimes splurge and have a Vente Peppermint Mocha!  Mmmmmmm . . . it makes my heart happy when I smell that peppermint.  LOL

Holiday drink... hot chocolate with a shot of something. I think last year we worked on a bottle of mint Baileys. As for your card - couldn't get any more holiday-er than that. And I always love to see great designs using tags on cards. Something I struggle with.

Yummy, yummy! love the holly paper you used on your card too. My favorite drink is a scandinavian specialty called Glugg. It brings back happy family memories. LOVE it every winter! PS...I'm glad I can read and post the number 530 to prove I'm not a robot too! HA HA

Becca Cruger said...

Your card is crisp, clean, and Christmasy! I love all that paper piecing you did. I laughed about your coffee order memorization story, because I have the same thing going on at mine. My favorite drink is an iced coffee with two shots of vanilla, but sometimes on those -40 degree North Dakota mornings, I decide to switch to a roasting hot caramel macchiato.

CUTE, CUTE card! LOVE the teacup stack, your colors/prints. :) My fav winter drink is hot or cold Trader Joe's spiced apple cider. It is delicious and since it is all "natural" with NO added sugar, it affects my blood sugar as though I ate an apple.

Jerrie said...

Oh those stacked coffee cups are nice! You have colored them perfectly! This is such a dainty card! My favorite holiday drink is coffee with Baileys Irish Cream and pretty soon it is just BIC!!

patricia ney said...

Pam Young said...

Your card is adorable!! My favorite drink is coffee!! Love Highlander Grog from Stauf's. Ymmmmm!!

Sheri said...

I know I am boring but it is hot chocolate! BUT there is one other that I discovered a year ago that is yummy. Take a half gallon of peppermint ice cream and soften it. Mix in 1 cup of CLEAR creme de cocoa and a little green food coloring if desired, Mix until well blended and freeze. Serve in pretty clear glasses. Oh my, this is yummy!

Kimberly Russell said...

Cute colors and patterns! Hot chocolate and marshmallows for me!

Such a beautiful card!!! My favorite Holiday drink is a toss up between a Hot toddy and a Hot Butter Rum! Oh so YUMMY!!!!

Lynae W said...

What a happy card that cupstack die is darling.

My favorite in the cold winter months is a cup of hot chocolate stirred with a candy cane with lots of whipped cream squirted on top and then chocolate syrup drizzled to top it off, across from a good friend with the same and over some laughs.

Thanks for your creative question.

Ssf said...

My favorite drink is normally wine, but a little eggnog is good at christmas

Connie said...

Frozenstamper said...

My favorite holiday drink has to be a start with morning coffee around the Christmas tree with scones.

Fun card! Love the paper patterns

Teresa Doyle said...

I'm not sure if you are asking about an alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage but mine is an easy one. If you mean a non-alcoholic drink, it would be my Mother's homemade eggnog! If you mean the other, just add rum! LOL Its very good, with or without!

Vera Yates (Ling) said...

Karolyn, your card is stunning! My favorite winter drink would have to be cappuccino with lots of cinnamon sprinkle on top!

Vicki Dutcher said...
