Friend Cards

Hello Friend Card
Have a card that fits two blog challenge sites today. Casual Friday's new challenge is called "Sweet Spots." Love this challenge as you get to use polka dots (one of my favorite things). Stampin' for the Weekend has a "bugs and butterflies" challenge which if you know me, I am a butterfly "collector" (in stamps and crafty goodness anyway).
I used clear cut shapes by Little Yellow Bicycle for my images. The sentiment stamp is by Hero Arts. I created the large polka dots with my Sizzix eClips (cardstock by Diecuts With A View). Fast and simple is my motto (especially in summer when I want to be outside reading, swimming, etc.)

Be A Friend Card
I also did a card for the PaperPlay Challenge of "Back to Kraft Basics." This card has kraft cardstock by The Paper Company and patterned papers by Diecuts With A View (also the clear sentiment sticker). The stamps are by Hampton Art and were heat embossed with black embossing powder (and then colored with a Copic marker). Easy peasy.

If you have been keeping up with my mini cooper adventure, I finally have a date (maybe) when I will get it. The dealer called yesterday and it's going be delivered to my house late Monday afternoon OR Tuesday morning. I don't usually want the weekend to speed up but this one is already going too slow. Wink. :) So remember if you see a red mini cooper (jerking or stalling....cause it is a manual/straight shift and I'm "rusty"), don't forget to wave.
Oh and if I am on a hill, don't get too close....cause I might roll backwards....just kidding....maybe. :)

Bev, I love that you used the large dots as a border. It kind of reminded me of that board game called Connect 4 - do you know this game? It was one of my faves as a kid! Great card! Thank you for playing along at CAS-uals Fridays this week!! Have a great weekend! Suzanne
