Card 5 VERY unofficially for coffee lovers hop

Link to the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is HERE.  It's closed for new entries, but you can still view all the projects there.

I know - it's not about coffee...but I didn't expect to get a doctor's appointment TODAY, so i had only a couple of hours to come up with something remotely comparable to LAST YEAR'S card for our rather exceptional family doctor.

The shaker bit is SUPPOSED to be a capsule, but it just didn't turn out quite the way I imagined.

THIS has plenty to do with coffee though.  It's ridiculously overpriced here in Au, so it's probably why I hadn't tried the dairy free til today.  Since it was too early for wine, I went with B & J instead.



📌 I have three items to give away (pictured below) and I'll pull three names.
📌 The first name gets first choice, second name gets second choice and so on.
📌 This Giveaway is NOT SPONSORED in any way,

The first item is a stamp and die set by Studio Light (a Dutch company) Really pretty and versatile images

This next guy will definitely be featured on a card in the coming days.  He's by Katzelkraft which is a French company with awesome images.  He's on red, unmounted rubber.

And we are all familiar with Avery Elle, right?

Love, and thankful it's over (but I had a blast)!


  1. Your shaker card is adorable! Love the capsule!
    I can't think of any service provider who I have made a card for, so I have to say no, I don't tend to make them! I'm sure they'd appreciate one though! I'll give that some consideration!

  2. I think the capsule looks perfect - I knew right away what it was! I like that it's a shaker as it makes it more fun! So nice of you to make a card for your doctor! Your ice cream looks yummy! As for your question, the only service provider that I make cards for is the postmaster at our local post office.

  3. What a sweet thought making a card for your Doctor. No, I haven't made a card for any service provider but I think this a really nice thing to do for all these special people. But I use to give my Doctor a present. I'm Sicilian but I live in Florence, Tuscany. My parents producing olive oil and they also have lemon and orange trees. So, I use to make a basket with some olive oil bottles and a lot of lemons and oranges. This year, I think I'll add a card too. I like your idea!

  4. Cute card, although the ice cream looks pretty good too lol. I am following. Hugz

  5. I think the capsule came our great!! And what a kind gesture. I have
    never given a card to any professional provider. I do give cards to all
    my co-workers and they really seem to appreciate it. Of course, it could
    be the lottery ticket I put inside. LOL Oh my, that ice cream looks
    heavenly! I follow all your socials! Thanks so much for the giveaways.
    You are so sweet!
