To My Coffee Loving Crafting Friends

Hey there all my coffee-loving crafting friends!  At the end of this post, there's a FABULOUS COFFEE-LOVERS GIVE-AWAY!!!  Thanks for stopping by today as I share a fun little card I made using some October Afternoon patterned papers and stickers.  I saw a really sweet color combination on a challenge blog, and knew right away that I liked the red and teal combo and wanted to play along.  I wrapped some baker's twine around my card...kept it pretty simple.
I also added a chipboard sentiment (Recollections from Michael's actually), and some Mulberry Flowers and stamens.  The butterfly is an October Afternoon sticker.  I did some machine stitching, and I inked the edges of my card with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.
During the Spring/Summer Coffee Hop, I was lucky enough to have won a prize.  I won this beautiful coffee die-cut from A Jillian Vance Designs.  Because I don't need it, I want to be kind enough to pass it along to someone who doesn't already have one, and who would enjoy designing with it.  So...with that said, if you don't already own this die and would like to put it to good use, just leave me a comment to be entered to win it.  I'd also love to have you become a new blog follower of mine.  I'm hoping to reach 1,000 followers so that I can do another (and bigger) give-away.  I'll use random.org to pick a winner, and I'll make that post next Sunday, June 17.  I appreciate your comments, and really appreciate having you become a new follower!
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a blessed week, and please visit me again soon.  Below is the list of challenges I'll be entering with this card.  I'm SO grateful for your visit today, and I hope to see you again soon.

Blessings,
Karen
