Coffee and Chocolate


This is the second of the two cards I made for Julie's Caffeine Swap on SCS.  I have many, many stamps with a caffeine theme.  That must mean I love caffeine--coffee, lattes and chocolate are at the top of the list!  This stamp is a Crackerbox Palace stamp.  This is a local stamp store about 45 minutes away.  They have some wonderful stamps and most of them have a humorous side to them!

The other card for this swap was posted on Thursday if you look back at my coffee themed card!
