Hello! It's finally Friday, which means a new CAS-ual Fridays challenge. This week's theme is Color Blocks: incorporate blocks of color in your clean and simple design. We also have a generous sponsor: CutCardstock.com is offering a $25 gift certificate to this week's winner.
I made a quick and easy tag with a coffee theme, using blocks of cardstock as the tag base. At the intersection of the blocks, I die cut a coffee cup and stamped the coordinating image in the negative space.
I came across this "hugs" sentiment from Paper Smooches, which I thought resembled steam rising from the cup. Plus a warm cup of coffee is really like a warm hug, isn't it?
As a finishing touch, I got to use some wonderful bits of ribbon from May Arts that my blog friend, Erin, sent to me. Her little guy included a handmade card for my son, which totally made his day, too. :)
