Warm Hugs


 Today is the start of the Fall/Winter 2019 Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!!


For my first card, I'm sharing a BRAND NEW digital stamp set from Graciellie Design called "Cuddle in a Cup." I paired it with papers from her "Cozy Christmas" digital paper pack for a warm and cozy look.

Gracie's have a mini blog hop to kick things off, with the chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Graciellie Design's digital store!  CLICK HERE to be taken to her blog for all the details and the complete blog hop list!

Your card is absolutely stunning! Your focal element is so visually exciting and perfectly executed! I found your blog through the hop but I will be back for more inspiration.
I don't work much with digital images and papers but I have seen some lovely creations using the Cuddle in a Cup Stamp and Paper sets. I may have to give this a go.

I am now following you!
