Thursday has rolled around once again and that means it's time for another Totally Papercrafts Challenge. Caroline chose the theme "Food and Drink" for us this week so I decided to pay tribute to my favorite drink...COFFEE! (I just lost Marlene, didn't I?) A grande decaf caramel macchiato to be exact. Lol

This week we are sponsored by Mel Jen's Designs

Mel Jen's Designs is a lovely stamp company owned and illustrated by Melissa Jenkins. She illustrates whimsical digital images inspired by her kids and family. The Meljen's Designs store officially launched on April 1 and is steadily growing!

Last weeks entries were beautiful and I can't wait to see what you have in store for us this week. So get busy and Happy Crafting Y'all!!

I am also entering this card in the Sparkle Creations Inspirational photo Challenge HERE.
