2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers
 Blog Hop
Friday Nov 30th - Friday, Dec 7th 

There are great prizes and no limits to the number of entries. The more entries the better your chances for winning Coffee Lovers' random prizes from over 60 super sponsors!

"Make it hot, make it now, put a little cream and sugar in, give me coffee, coffee, coffee, coffee, coffee" and create a Fall/Winter project to include some sort of coffee, tea or cocoa element. How simple is that?

For inspiration, sing along with Frank Sinatra's The Coffee Song. You'll be glad you did!

The Coffee Blog Hop closes at 12:00 midnight, Pacific Standard Time, on Friday, December 7th. Remember that Double Trouble is biweekly and we'd like you to play along with us throughout our entire challenge.

BLOG CANDY for the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop: In addition to the usual random draw prize at Double Trouble, we are contributing a coffee mat and Spellbinder die to four recipients also by random draw. If you submit a card to Double Trouble and make a comment on this post and tell us, "What's your favorite hot/cold drink during the holidays," this will qualify you for the Blog Candy random draw. Please join us and become a possible recipient of this Blog Candy.

Lagene said...

Well, my favorite hot drink for the holidays is plain strong black coffee to go with deserts of all kinds! Especially pecan pie! I plan to start crafting and enter this challenge this week.

AJ Bodine said...

I'm a boring coffee drinker..I like it plain black. Thanks for the fun challenge!

SHartl said...

I love my hot cocoa with marshmallows or whipped cream and a little bit of cinnamon on top! Thanks for another fun challenge.

Karenladd said...

My favorite hot drink for the holiday is the same that I have all year round...french roast coffee with hot milk. I like to have something that doesn't compete with all the sweet goodies I love at Christmas!
Entered in the Coffee Lovers hop, this challenge, and Three Amigos!

Pam said...

I love hot orange spiced tea! It really warms me up and it tastes sooo good! Perfect with some Christmas cookies! Of course a nice hot cup of cocoa with lots of marshmallows is a must at Christmas time!
Wonderful DT creations! Thanks for the fun challenges!

Becca Yahrling said...

We always go for a hot Peppermint Mocha!! Yummy!!

KT Fit Kitty said...

Awesome challenge and gorgeous inspiration! Can't wait to join in! For my favourite hot drink during the holidays (well, actually all year long hehe) I love Chocolatey Chai Herbal Tea. There are no calories but it feels like I'm indulging! I've already had one today and will most likely have more! Thanks for a fun challenge!

Janis said...

Love a flavored Latte the best...anytime!!! :)
Thank you for another fun challenge. I haven't had a chance to get over here for a long time and I am so glad to be participating again!!
Merry Christmas to all!!
