This Squirrel is Nuts About Coffee!

Coffee of the Day - Oatmeal Raisin Cookie


Well it's the last official day of the Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop... there have been so many amazing projects made, and I haven't seen even half of them yet! :) I hope to get around to a few more blogs, but also need to get my home in order because we have company coming later today... guess I need a few more cups of coffee to get me going! ha!

I had to have my final project honor the cutie squirrels that live all around our house. and of course, any squirrel around here would HAVE to have a coffee cup in his little bitty hands!


this adorable image comes from Toadstool Printables. isn't he just so much fun?! the great acorn card template is from ShapeEZ by TLC. not sure if she has it in the shop right now or not, but you could certainly send her a message if she doesn't. Tammy is just as nice as can be! since I don't have an electronic cutting machine, I appreciate people who include files for folks like me who have to cut things out by hand.

the paper on the acorn is by Simple Stories while the leaves are cut from Basic Grey Indian Summer papers. they were cut with a Tim Holtz die and then sprayed with 2 shades of glimmer mist. the acorn top was also sprayed with glimmer mist. yes, I do like that stuff!

the mulberry leaves are by Prima, the burlap ribbon is May Arts, the burlap twine comes from Etsy, buttons are vintage, and that fab sunflower is from Factory Direct Crafts.

please be sure to sign up for my coffee themed blog candy at this post. I will announce the winner in the next few days. :)

Have a great weekend!
