Stampin’ Up! Merry Cafe and Coffee Cafe Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Well September is here and we are all very ready for some rain here in the Pacific NW.  We are having horrible fires just east of us in the Columbia River Gorge. We need rain to help put out the horrible fires that are burning.  We are under a air quality alert with thick smoke and now ash from the fires is falling in the area too.  The news advised us all to stay inside, so today I played in my stamping room and created this fall card for you.  Today was a color challenge, Crushed Curry, Garden Green and Early Espresso. These colors are perfect for my fall gift card holder for the  share today.

Stampin’ Up! “Coffee Cafe'” Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, I took a week off while we were on vacation to the beautiful state of Alaska.  I had no internet service to link my blog which is why I was missing from the hop last week.  All last week I craved my Starbucks Mocha and had to wait until we were in the lower 48 to treat myself to my cup of joe.  Funny how I picked the Coffee Cafe’ stamp set this week for the hop.  Enjoy my share and know that I am probably sipping my coffee as your read my blog.  Today we have a sketch challenge and I am loving this new set and matching designer series paper that matches.
