Coffee Lovers Hop

Coffee lovers

It’s the yummiest time of the year. It’s the start of the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Hop and I’m happy to say that The Cat’s Pajamas is one of the Super Sponsors. A lot of The Cat Packers are playing along, including me!

If you are like me, you start each day with a strong cup of coffee. But, lately, since it’s been colder that usual, I make it a little bolder with a splash of homemade Irish Creme. (Recipe below) It’s not A PURE Irish coffee. It’s a LITTLE Irish… 🙂

Irish Coffee

And, if you are also like me, you need a little boost to get going. Mine was a favorite sketch from Julee Tilman’s Mojo Monday. I used one of our NEW Digi, Irish Coffee Gnome, and edited the digi a bit to make it less St. Paddy’s Day and more “Day after”. The sentiment also comes in the digi set, and I typed up the word “coffee” and reversed it out. Love the extra dimension it gives to the card.

I thought it needed a bit of bling, so I colored several pearl embellies with copics. This card came together really quickly, even the fussy cutting, which I let my Silhouette do. And, then, I just enjoyed coloring! It’s been some time since I did that.

Here’s the Homemade Irish Cream Recipe from Allrecipes

In a blender, combine heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, Irish whiskey, instant coffee, chocolate syrup, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Blend on high for 20 to 30 seconds. Store in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator. Shake well before serving.

Easy Peasy, Right? It’s so good! And I can make it to my taste, which happens to be a little more Irish.
