I adore Autumn! I love the cool, crisp air and the beautiful foliage! I love Thanksgiving and all of the warm comfort foods that come with it! I love warm fires in the evening and I especially love fall colors! I had happened upon a coffee digital set that Julee from Verve Stamps had made available during the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop but I wasn't able to use it at the time because I had a faulty wire on my printer. I downloaded the free digis for later because 1. it was free and 2. it's coffee related and I love all things coffee and 3. it has a beautiful Autumn theme! Anyway, I am finally getting around to using them now that my printer has been repaired! I kept it simple by using some mustard and leaf green cardstocks from Hobby Lobby and some pretty leaf paper from The Paper Studio, also from Hobby Lobby. I die cut a large circle using MFT's pierced circle dies and then added some faux black stitches around the outside of the sentiment. I colored the mugs using Copic markers in shades to match the patterned paper and then fussy cut them out and mounted them up using some foam dimensionals from Stampin' UP. A few candy dots in yellow and orange from the Paper Studios and I called this card done!
