Hocus Pocus I need coffee to focus!

I just love this image and sentiment from Jessica Lynn, and it is another freebie for the Fall Coffee Bloghop.  And, this is the last card that I have for right now.  I know that I am planning to go tomorrow to celebrate my daughter's birthday with her and her class and then on Thursday they are coming here to the capital so I will be spending time with her and her students so again I won't be able to craft.  It is worth it to see her as an adult doing her job, and I'm so proud of her.  I couldn't help it, but I had to buy her a pair of Mary Janes for for her birthday, hehe.

Here is a freebie image and sentiment from Limited Runs.  The patterned paper is a new release that will be coming out new week from Imagine That Digistamp, but I couldn't help using it because it was the perfect colors and had pumpkins on it which is great for a fall card.

I like BIG CUPS and I cannot lie

This image is from TLC, Create and if you go in the store there are a lot of coffee sentiments/images as well as right now Paulette has a lot of freebies that are perfect for the Fall Coffee Blog Hop.  I paper pieced this image a long time ago and finally got to putting it together.

Coffee and friends...the perfect blend

Today I again, wanted to make cards for the Fall Coffee Blog Hop, but I did make cards, but I needed to make for an upcoming DT release so I wanted to get my samples done and I still have one more that I am thinking on how I want to do it.  Then I went to a friend's so we could do our weekly Sunday "take the baby Granddaughter for a walk".  After that we ordered pizza and talked and then I came home to watch the Green Bay Packers which was disappointing.  Then finally I got a chance to make a few after a late night...when I should be sleeping.  So here is one, using an image and sentiment from TLC, Create.  If you go to the TLC, Create site, Paulette has some wonderful freebies that are perfect for the coffee blog hop.
