Welcome to the November coffee and cards with Celeste and Deb collaboration! This month we decided we'd do something Thanksgiving related since Thanksgiving is this coming week. I know 2020 has been a tough year for all of us, and I know that the holidays are going to be vastly different for many of this year. But we all still have much to be grateful and thankful for. I know I certainly do and I wanted my card to reflect that. To create my card I started by layering some 1" circles I cut using a Stampin' UP circle punch and some pretty patterned paper from the Authentique 6x6 Essentials Collection paper pad directly onto my card panel. I then wrapped some natural twine from American Crafts around the panel, securing it in the back using some scotch tape. I then adhered the panel directly to the front of my A2 card base. I stamped the sentiment using a fun wood block stamp I found at the dollar spot at my local Target using Gina K Designs charcoal brown ink. I die cut the beautiful leaves using Jillian Designs Leaves and Petals dies and some Stampin' UP kraft cardstock. I adhered them to the card using foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives and then attached a bow using more of the same natural twine from American Crafts using a glue dot. To finish the card off I adhered a small yellow button I had in my stash directly to the leaves. Love how clean and simple this card.
For my coffee this month I bought a bottle of cinnamon and vanilla cold brew from my local Aldi's and came home and put it on ice. And yes, it's as tasty as it sounds! Anyway, I hope everyone is staying safe out there and we all have a beautiful Thanksgiving. Now be sure to pop over to Deb's blog and see what fun she created for us this month.

I don't usually participate in the Coffee Lovers blog hop because I work crazy hours and just simply don't have time to comment on the many posts, but I was at my local Tuesday Morning yesterday to pick up a new bath mat and happened upon the Echo Park Coffee 6x6 paper pad. Well, I simply couldn't resist. I immediately came home and started creating using only my white A2 card bases and some black cardstock from Stampin' UP. The rest of the cards were created with cut apart sheet and patterned paper from that one simple kit. I got a bit carried away and created 3 of each design featured above! And I still have a ton of patterned paper and another cut apart sheet leftover! Anyway, I love how beautifully and simply these came together using one simple paper pack. Thank you for stopping by my blog today and, if you like my cards, be sure to leave a comment.
