Happy National Coffee Lover's Day!

She has invited card makers from all over the world to participate and you can too!
There are some awesome prizes to be won! all the detailS of the prizes and where to link up to the hop are HERE on Chaitali's blog!...



Here is my card for the hop. I CASED myself from this card HERE using Reverse Confetti's Be a Barista and Go Together and one again using my favourite patterned paper for coffee cards Basic Grey Persimmon!

My favourite fall treat from Starbucks is a Salted Caramel Mocha, half sweet.
What is your favourite fall coffee treat?



Coffee Lover's Blog Hop Q & A (as suggested by Virginia Lu)...

1. When did you start drinking coffee?

I remember sitting with friends one weekend after I was married and discussing how could anyone drink coffee--yuck! Well throw in two years of teaching and I became a coffee addict just in time to have to stop drinking for a while it because I became pregnant with my first!

2. What is favorite brand? 

I love Starbucks Guatemala, Tim Hortons (because I am a real Canadian) and Green Mountain Coffee Nantucket Blend K-Cups.

3. What is the most amazing coffee that you had?

Most amazing was at Soporafino's in Oshawa before we even lived here with my husband. Amazing food too. We went there every year for Valentines Day. Sadly they closed a few years ago.

4. If I don't drink my needed coffee, I will...

...be a zombie until I have my cuppa to get going.

I am also linking this up to the Inkspirational Beverages/Drinks challenge!



I hope that you come and play along!
Thank you Chaitali for organizing this fabulous blog hop!
Have a wonderful day!!
