Today I'm sharing some more inspiration for our current challenge! I am adding a touch of coffee to each card, so I can play with the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! Did you know that Newton's Nook Designs is one of the amazing Super Sponsors?  

A Christmas Espresso by Debbie features Circle frames, Pumpkin Latte, Meowy Christmas, Love Cafe', A Kitten Christmas, and Naughty or Mice by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #christmascards, #micecards, #coffeecards

I couldn't decide which mouse I liked the best, so I decided to make a set of four coffee-themed Christmas cards just perfect for adding a gift card to a local coffee shop!  I used the Circle Frames die set to make the card bases. The sweet mice are from the Naughty or Mice stamp set. I took the liberty to add a latte cup (Pumpkin Latte stamp set) to the first card by cutting off one of the presents. For the last card, I did some fussy cutting to add the latte cup between the mouse's hands!  The other two mice have a coffee cup from the Newton Loves Coffee next to them because wrapping and decorating requires lots of caffeine!  I used different papers from the Meowy Christmas paper pad. I love the bright colors on this paper set.  For the sentiment, I pulled the words "A Christmas" from the Kitten Christmas stamp set.  Then I used the word "espresso" from the  Love Cafe stamp set. I know that cutting words apart can be intimidating, but it allows for unique sentiments and doesn't hurt the stamps!
