Well, the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop has topped 600 entries already… before the day is done we’ll probably pass our all-time record.

  1. What a clever way to use that roller coaster image! Those little coffee cup fonts are adorable and just perfect for this card. I didn’t get around to entering or making even ONE card for this hop so am especially impressed with how many wonderful cards you shared!


  2. I have to say that this is GENIUS on so many levels! I could immediately relate to the theme you had going. I work in a cubicle and my day is measured by cups of hot cocoa. Lucky for me, they crank the AC on way too high no matter the season, so hot cocoa is always needed! I thought it was so clever of you to use the roller coaster as sort of a visual representation of the day and how the journey is measured in coffee at different points. Even the background (which is gorgeous) seemed to mirror morning, then afternoon, then evening. I also love, love, love the sentiment and the coffee mug font you used. The whole thing ties together and made me smile. It felt good knowing that I wasn’t the only one who measures time in mugs! Thanks for sharing these brilliant ideas with us for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
