Coffee Lovers Bloghop

If you want to check out my FOSTV post please pop down to the post below.

Today I am taking part in the Coffee Lovers blog hop (Amy Tsuruta is the woman behind this fun event).  Check it out here

I actually feel I am participating for my niece and nephew who couldn't survive without their coffee.  In 6th form that certainly applied to me but now - my coffee drinking is after an evening meal out or when in the USA.

We have some really cool sponsors for the hop with fantastic goodies!! Random winners from the hop participants will get some fun coffee-themed goodies See all the prize packages here -

 We have been asked to answer a few questions:

 1. When did you start drinking coffee?
In the 6th form because I liked black coffee but not black tea and with no refrigeration we couldn't have milk.

 2. What is favorite brand (you can name up to three).
I don't have a favourite brand but I need to mention Miko coffee as my nephew works for them.

3. What is the most amazing coffee that you had? Remember where and when?
The most welcome coffee was one we had in a Starbucks in Washington on a chilly Sunday morning on a short visit to the city a few years ago.  We had been walking about but chilled through we went in to find cosy chairs, hot steamy coffee and Sunday papers.  It was simple black coffee but it was a real treat.

 4. If I don't drink my needed coffee, I will...survive, tea however is a different matter!

After all the chatter here is my card. It uses stamps from Impression Obsession and Marks Finest Papers and was coloured with Copics. and a gold pen.  A few key gems were added to - these girlie mugs needed that!

Here is a closer look at the central panel
Enjoy your cuppa wherever you are today.
