SSHP24 - Anyone for some Coffee????

Good Morning Everyone Happy Saturday!!! WOOHOO I am sooo happy the weekend is here!!! I think I say this every Saturday LOL!!! I have been MIA a couple days so now I am ready to get back into the swing of things and start off with a fun new Saturday Spotlight Challenge!!!

This weeks challenge is for you to create something with COFFEE in mind! You don't HAVE to use coffee images for this challenge, you can take inspiration from the colors you think of in coffee like rich browns, blacks, tan/creamy colors, etc. And to help you out a bit further, we wanted to provide you with this inspirational photo

So please take the inspiration from the photo or from the colors you think of with coffee and have fun with it!! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!!
