Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2020 Post #8

This is my eighth post in the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2020!

In the last three Coffee Lovers Blog Hops, I completed 20 posts, including little competitions with prizes -
 This time, we are in the process of moving house - and I am definitely not going to make 20 posts. I will try and make 10 - but I have only just finished unpacking my craft stuff into my new craft room. 
This is how my craft room looks today:

I am adding trivia questions with the chance to win a prize or two - so please keep calling and commenting - thank you to those of you who have answered the questions so far - hope you are having fun!!

Today I have made a yoyo card.
The theme for Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge #142 is Y is for Yo Yo card
 and she gives instructions on how to make one here

The wheel is as follows:

I haven't tried to follow all the elements - just added the butterflies...

 The background paper was from LC Designs and is green although it doesn't look like it in the second picture! I added this to a white square card blank.
I added the coffee ring stamp (Vintage Chic) and the other images (Joy Clair) stamped in brown Archival ink. The sentiment was from an unbranded set.

Finally I added the yoyo - this is how it works:

I will link this to both the Butterfly Challenge and the 2020 Spring Summer Coffee Lovers Hop

My trivia question for Coffee Lovers Hop Post #8 is:

Adding cream to coffee…

A. Cools it down

B. Helps it retain heat longer
