November STAMPlorations challenges - Mid-Month Reminder

Halfway through the month already? Can you hear Christmas approaching? Have you already played along with our November challenges over at STAMPlorations? I can't help you with the first two dilemmas, but if your answer to the last question is no, fear not. You can find freshly added inspiration today for various November challenges on the STAMPlorations blog. My tag is for the November TAGplorations challenge, where the theme is about being thankful and with an optional twist of polka dots. I'm very thankful for coffee every morning and I thought it would probably be fun to drink it out of a pink polka-dot mug!

The background is created using Distress Oxide smooching. I stamped the coffee mug and pot and coloured using Copics, except for the coffee cup which I paper pieced. Last I heat embossed the sentiment using copper embossing powder. 

Card: 300 gsm watercolour card, Neenah Solar White card, Lawn Fawn Let's Polka, Mon Amie patterned paper
Stamps: STAMPlorations What's Brewing, Coffeeology
Dies: CUTplorations Manila Tags Nesting Dies
Ink and colouring: Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine, Distress Oxides, Copics
