A cup of thanks...

Happy Friday! I have a card I want to share with you all. I made this with two challenges in mind: Retro Sketches #49, and Paper Smooches Sparks: Trend Watch challenge - Polka dots.

and the inside:

Here are the two challenges:

Instead of hearts I used this cute coffee mug, but only stamped and fussy cut 3 of them to fit my A2 sized card. All papers that I used have polka dots on it. For the kraft card base, I stamped the coffee ring as a sort of artsy polka dot. (I stamped it on scrap paper first because I wanted a lighter image.) After I adhered the blue paper down, I still thought the kraft needed something more. So I stamped the coffee beans randomly just as I did the ring. (more artsy polka dots!) Finished off the inside with a couple strips of the same paper on the front, added the sentiment, and done!

So, any plans this weekend? I think I want to see that new flick "Safe Haven". (If it's out...I think it is.) Looks like a good chick flick! I hope the hubby will go. We usually see all the action or sci-fi movies. I'm not complaining, I'm a major geek and love those types of movies. But still, it's nice to see something different from time to time. I hope that you have a great weekend, whatever you decide! Thanks for stopping by!
