Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

 Today is National Coffee Day and to celebrate I am participating in a blog hop for COFFEE LOVERS....obviously centered around one of my favorite things which is an essential to my morning routine!! The first thing I think about when I rouse for sleep is COFFEE. I pretty much don't talk until the very first sip, terrible, I know! However...after that sip, it's ALL GOOD!

I have two cards to share today using a favorite coffee stamp set from Reverse Confetti, Be a Barista!
The patterned paper is Carta Bella Sew Lovely and love the color pallet! I made this one for my daughter since she is a freshmen at college and has found her own love for coffee in the mornings! I added a bit of Want2Scrap bling because don't you just love the steam that comes off a coffee of fresh HOT coffee!!!!

And this next card uses the same stamp set but has more of a birthday flare...
I made this card using the colors from the Reverse Confetti September Color Challenge of pink, yellow and gray!

I started drinking coffee in college, way back in 1991 and haven't looked back. My favorite is Starbucks Verona whole bean, we love to grind fresh each morning for Cuisinart coffee pot. I have never taken the plunge into the Keurig world, I know many love the convenience, but I love hearing the grinder each morning as my husband lovingly makes up a pot each morning.

What is your favorite coffee from a coffee shop?
I always enjoy a double Starbucks Vanilla Latte, but since the Pumpkin Spice Latte's made an early debut that is what I grab when I am in town!
Here is pic from when hubby and I took off for Asheville (sans kiddos) for a quick getaway and Starbucks is always a stop!
I hope you can hop along with us! You can find out all the details HERE from Chaitali. I know that there are some cool prizes along the way and looking forward to hopping myself with my own fresh brewed cup of joe!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day! 
Blessings,
