National Caffeine Awareness Month...

"Cupid Shooting Arrow" was provided by
Drawn with Character.

Who knew??  I had no idea there was such a thing!
613 Ave C's latest challenge is to celebrate this widely popular occasion with all the masses that gather for parades and coffee bar events country wide!  LOL!  Ok, I will play along... my fave source for caffeine is hot chocolate {at least today it is}!  The DT has some delightful samples to celebrate the cause - check out their take on the theme (ATG /Twist: Use something with caffeine), and enter up to three of your own before next Saturday!

I used a deep chocolate brown base CS in a Z-fold & layered the panels with these wonderful blue patterned papers that a friend was giving away - what is the matter with her??!!  I luvs this paper!  The cuppa hot chocolate [from Melonheadz], was printed twice, colored with Copics & using Paper Sculpting to achieve the curvature, I popped up a 2nd layer of marshmallows and the heart on the front using foam tape.
Here is the Ode to Caffeine on the inside:
