Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

The fabulous & amazing & sweet Amy Tsuruta (I know, I've met her) is hosting a Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I haven't been crafting a lot so any excuse to make another card and play along with a fun blog hop is fabulous! (Oh and I do love my coffee!)

The card I made is not really holiday related... but I'm not making any holiday cards (gasp, I know, shocking - grad school is my excuse). However, I did need to make a little card to go along with a little "just because" gift I sent to my good friend Emily last week.

So Amy has some sponsors for the hop so be sure to check out all the details on her blog.  Everyone that links up with newly created holiday coffee/or other favorite hot holiday drink project is eligible for free stuff from the sponsors.  Check out the fabulous list sponsors and their freebie stuff! :)
