2016 Fall Coffee Lovers Hop – Decaffeinated Card

20160924_220027

Good morning, peeps and visitors! I’m so glad to finally be ‘plugged in’ again!! I was in rural Indiana with very spotty phone signal and the internet was down the entire time. Of course, what would you expect when the internet provider is OINC Wireless?!! When will it be working again? When pigs fly! LOL! I’ve got a lot going on, but at least I’m back to crafting on a limited basis… just in time to join the Fall Coffee Lovers Hop which started a couple of days ago.

While travelling, I picked up the coffee coaster from Cracker Barrel knowing it could be up-cycled into a great fall colored card.

Unfortunately some of us have been restricted to decaf coffee by our doctors. Poor us! It’s just not the same!! So I made a card for someone else who just had to give up caffeine…

These cats aren’t getting into any trouble on decaf! It’s a real drag going into caffeine withdrawal… Somebody definitely needs a hug!! : )

It’s Time to Switch to Decaf! Gift Tag

Good evening and welcome back! Tonight’s tag is an owl at sunrise on a wintry day… those wide eyes made him look so hyped on caffeine – even more so with googly eyes!  I just HAD to make up this sentiment to go with a decaf coffee gift box:

Before I go, I have another bonus to share… a special little something you might enjoy adding to your coffee to warm you up on cold winter nights. Sort of a DIY Bailey’s:

Irish Creme Liqueur

  • 1 3/4 cup of your favorite liquor (scotch, bourbon, whisky, brandy, or a combo
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 Tablespoons Chocolate syrup or 1 Tablespoon powdered cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons instant coffee
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Put in blender and blend until smooth on low. Keeps up to 1 month refrigerated (maybe! wink-wink)

See you tomorrow!
