Coffee Lover's blog hop !!

Hello everyone! :)
Today, I am participating in a very fun blog hop called the Coffeee Lover's Blog Hop hosted by Chaitali of Cuts, Crops & Creativity. It's for all the coffee lover's out there as today is celebrated as National Coffee day!
I am an ardent fan of coffee and truly addicted to it. In India especially the southern part, coffee is a staple beverage and I have been born and brought there. So my love for coffee really originated from there. I love love love the South Indian Filter coffee, the aroma and the taste is something one just has to experience to appreciate it ..Truly !!

Okay besides my ramblings about coffeee there is a fun Q & A added to make this hop more fun and it goes like this :-
1. When did you start drinking coffee?? 
A. I guess at quite an young age probably as a teenager.

2. What is your favorite brand ?
A. I have two brands that I am crazy about one is from South India and its called BRU and the other is Nescafe.

3. What is the most amazing coffee that you had? Remember where and when? 
Like I have said already, my best memories of good coffee all originate from South India so it has to be filter coffee. :)

4. If I don't drink my needed coffee...
A. Well, my day is miserable and I turn completely morose and anti social :D

Ahh ! After this long post, here's a look at what I have created for this hop :

My card is pretty simple!  I have used my very new Fiskars Latte Love stamp set to create  this card. For my background, the upper dots background is done with a Heidi Swapp stencil. I have sponged in Tumbled glass Distress ink through the dot stencil and for the lower part of my background, I stamped a gingham pattern using the Kaisercraft texture stamp using Hero Arts Fresh Peach Mid-tone shadow ink. The coffee cups ate stamped, colored and fussy cut then mounted on foam bits. The sentiment is stamped on a diecut which I have cut off from one side then colored a white cardstock using Fired brick Distress ink and punched them out using a small three in one heart punch.

To finish off my card, I have added a bit of  Platinum Stickles and Glossy accents to my steam and the hearts to make them pop.
