Coffee Rather Than Compliments

Did you participate in my Cat Hop????
Winners for the 2021 Cat Lovers Hop are Posted HERE!!

Hi, Coffee and Cat Loving Friends.....

I hardly ever get to participate in the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop because I am usually still up to my purr box in Cat Hop stuff.  But for some odd reason I am temporarily caught up with Hop prize correspondence and so I have a card to share!  

I love the look of monochromatic cards, but don't make them often.  This fabulous cat image stamped in black and heat embossed gives this otherwise plain card a bit of shine.....which of course you can't see in the photo!!  Ha.  The dry embossed background gives some interest, too.

Supplies used include:
Technique Junkies - Coffee Kitty stamp
Versafine Ink in Onxy Black
STAMPlorations - Literary Caffeine-ations 
Sizzix  - TH Texture Fades - Courtyard
Spellbinders Small DOM March 2018 (retired)
Thank you for stopping by to see my card.  I hope you all are having fun on the Coffee Hop!!!
