Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2020 Post #7

This is my seventh 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 spent all today unpacking my craft stuff into my new craftroom. 
Not much time to make anything!!

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!!

When I posted my grumpy coffee monster pocket letter the other day, Suzanne H commented that she saw a before and after coming up... I wonder if today's make will suffice?

Unfortunately I do not have a printer set up yet - so I can only use what I have available today.

And I had  Leigh's  "Party" Balleigh Monster. coloured and ready to make into an ATC.

I decided to use this to make an easel ATC - this is a development on an ATC I made the other day - I used the same red striped paper!

  1. Brown card base for original image and also easel (7 by 2.5 inch card scored at 1.75 and 3.5 inches along the long side).
  2. Layers of paper from LC Designs.
  3. Image printed ATC size, coloured with Copics and cut out.
  4. Easel stand made by using stamps from Uniko, stamping one over the other on brown card, cutting them out and attaching the result with dimensionals.

Once again Leigh is hosting a Halfway to Halloween Half-O-Ween Blog Hop - find more details here...

I will also link this to the Something Wicked this way comes post.

My trivia question for Coffee Lovers Hop Post #7 is:

The meaning of the term “espresso” is…

A. Forced out

B. Expressive

C. Under pressure

Please email your answer to
Names of everyone emailing me a correct answer during the hop
will go in the hat for the opportunity to win a prize...
 Winners to be announced shortly after the hop...

Happy Crafting!
