Now onto some CREATIVE Fun stuff from Leticia!

Hi Creative Friends! ACJwM Creative Crew member Leticia Arvizu here! I am so excited to share my creations with all of you today for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! If you love coffee as much as I do then I am sure you are using coffee mugs, coffee cups and coffee sentiments in all of your crafting! I personally love to use ALL of them! I used ACJwM Coffee Is My Liquid Therapy stamp set for the two cards I am sharing with you all!! I’ve really been on the snail mail kick lately. It really is nice to receive happy mail. I love when I receive a handmade card in the mail. One of my girlfriends and I have been corresponding via mail lately, and she’s as much as a coffee lover as I am. So for my first card I used the coffee mug and “hello friend” sentiment. Fall is in the air and pumpkin spice latte is my fave right now! Pumpkin everything, yes please!!

My second card actually doubles as a gift card holder. I needed a thank you card for a great friend who has shown me so much kindness recently. I used the coffee cup and sleeve along with the “Thanks a latte!” sentiment stamp. I kept with the fall theme and used paper from Simple Stories Pumpkin Spice collection. I plan on slipping a Starbucks gift card into the envelope.

   We are trying something a little different this month. We are not doing a blog hop as we have done in the past. We had some concern that people were having quite a time and some got confused. It was suggested that it was easier to just go to a central location and then go back and forth from there so that is what we are doing. We are doing a giveaway on each of the Creative Crew Team Members Blog as well as ours here! Yes, that’s right! SIX GIVEAWAYS! Be sure to follow the directions on each blog to qualify!

Click below on each of our awesome Creative Crew Members button to see their amazing projects and the giveaways that are being offered. Don’t forget to come back and be sure to check out all of them!
