Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!


I'm so excited to be participating in the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop -- Holiday Edition! Since I started sharing my dad's coffee with him by the age of six, I think I qualify as a coffee lover. :)

And what's a blog hop without giveaways? Many individuals will be giving out blog candy to a commenter as part of their hop post.

Since you've made it this far... here is my contribution to the hop:


Although a certain large coffee chain thinks pumpkin spice lattes are seasonal, I would happily drink them from the onset of cool weather till it's time to break out the tshirts and shorts again. Many of my PSL-drinking friends would agree! So I was thrilled to discover this recipe to make my own pumpkin spice syrup. (I also like knowing all the ingredients that go into it...) So I thought some syrup in a decorative bottle with a themed tag would make a perfect holiday gift. 
If you haven't already, make yourself comfortable with your favourite hot beverage and get hopping! 

Supplies: Stampin' Up kraft & very vanilla cardstock, Basic Grey Aspen Frost patterned paper, Stampin' Up Patterned Occasions stamp, Versafine onyx black & Memento Luxe love letter inks, Zing clear embossing powder, Papertrey Ink tag sale #4 & Spellbinders circle dies, Winsor & Newton iridescent medium, pop-dot tape, Offray red ribbon
