Sweet Spot

On what is supposed to be the first day of summer vacation, I am home with a sick little boy.  Luckily, it's the one who likes to be crafty so I got in some stamping time :)

My card today was inspired by the CAS-ual Fridays "Sweet Spot" Challenge;  to use polka dots. I started by die cutting the coffee cup & cozy from the Cozy Coffee set by 'Lil Inker Designs.  Next I did my stamping and paper pieced the center heart for some contrast in color and pattern.  I added a fun banner & button detail to the focal panel for added interest and balance.

I hope your weekend is off to a great start!

This is WAY cute! And perfect timing, since I just finished a large coffee! I'm not sure who I could give this to and mean it, heehee! I love how you used the polka dots and the little flags and button at the top!

Thanks for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays this week!

I haven't looked at your blog in a few days, and I can see I have missed a lot. Love every card you have posted this first week of June but especially this "Love you more than coffee" card!!
So sorry you have a sick little boy. I hope he is feeling better soon!

EEEK, this is pure CAS perfection. I love the tiny "ribbon" tails near the top. Such a great touch. Great job with this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge:)

This CAS rocks the house! From the dots on the green dp, the dotted steam lines and the repeat of red - balanced, fun, and very clever. I love the use of craft paper for your base which compliments the coffee sleeve! Fantastic design!
