2017 Fall Coffee Lover Blog Hop - Entry #2

Its still raining.....We are now on to Day 7 of rain which has turned the lawn and gardens into muddy mush. Although the lawns are all super long and I can see the weeds sprouting before my eyes the little devils!! So all this extra time on my hands has resulted in another entry for the 2017 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!
For this card I wanted to use some different stamps but turn them into an 'Autumn' theme using fall colours:

This stamp set is so cute and I wasn't sure if it would look right with the leaves and flowers being coloured this way but I'm so in love with how it turned out!!

I started off by stamping the two floral patterns on the card front and colouring them using my Faber Castell pencils. I then stamped the bear image and the cup on some white CS, coloured with my pencils and fussy cut out. The cup was put on foam tape over his hands and he was then popped up on some foam tape as well. The sentiment was simply stamped on the card front with black ink and I added some co-ordinating sequins. 

The floral, bear and cup images are from Waffle Flower 'Bear and Bird'. The sentiment stamp is from Altenew 'Coffee Love' and the sequins from Neat and Tangled.

I have four other challenges I would like to enter: 

Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge (Pop it Up)

AAA Card Challenge # 99 

Stamplorations Summer CAS Challenge 

The Cat's Pyjama's Tuesday Challenge #339 

I've got one more coffee card to enter (so excited that I managed to make 3 this time!!) but need to work out whats happening for dinner first. Although quite often Friday night turns into Pizza Hut night which I don't mind at all. In fact don't you think Pizza would be lovely on a cold, rainy evening...??? I'm sold!

Take care
