A Hug in a Mug!

Hi friends!

I know - that title sounds a bit like sentence from a Dr. Seuss book :)  
Coffee IS a hug in a mug!

I absolutely adore my Starbucks!
Anytime.  Anywhere.  Anyplace ♥
I get seriously excited when I know it's red cup season,
that is like my own personal little mini Christmas!
Of course, I'm a 'Bux fan all year long
but the holiday cups are the cutiest :)

I get a kick out of the Coffee Lover's Blog Hops every time
they come around, in all seasons that we celebrate.
So I'm glad I was able to play along again this winter.

Today's card is one that I channeled my love of snow and winter -
blues and whites and some winter coffee paper :)
I've used Coffee Is a Hug from Riley and Company stamps
funnybones collection.
Off to the side is a coffee cup stamp, die cuts and paper pieced coffee sleeve
all from Prickley Pear Stamps and dies.

To learn more about the hop, or to link up your card, 
you can find all the information here :)
I'll link up my card as well to join all the coffee, tea, and cocoa friends!
Thanks for stopping by today
Big hugs, bigger blessings!
