Polka Dot Coffee Cup....Inkspirational Challenge #127~Designer Choice, Coffee Loving Cardmakers~CASEing DT Link Up Party #9 - Case A Designer

Hello,

Time for a new challenge which was chosen by our dear Yvonne  who is taking a break at the moment due to sad personal circumstances. We hope she'll be back with us soon.  Sending hugs galore to you, dear friend!

Yvonne's Inkspirational Challenge #127~Designer's Choice, which I know will see the gallery explode with creativity is....are you ready....



I love  polka dots; you love polka dots...we allllll love polka dots! The words alone make me smile!

Joining us this week is marvelously talented Jane, whose card is sheer delight. Please drop by her place and leave her some love! My wonderful team would also be thrilled to hear from you:

Marina 

For my card, I headed over to Coffee Loving Cardmakers~CASEing DT Link Up Party #9 - Case A Designer, where I was inspired to *case* Cris' card (bottom right), with a couple of twists: kraft = kraft; snowflakes on her to-go cup = background panel of blue bokeh on mine; her little fox and bear images = my heart images; three panel layers = three panel layers...I hope I've come 'kind' of close...


Isn't that polka dot mug fantastic? A set of those in my kitchen? Yes, please!!


Just a quick note: I'm currently at my mom's (yayyy....), where I'm hard at work, marking diploma exams from 8am - 4:30pm. We started on Thursday and will be running straight through until Wednesday, Feb. 1st.  Long hours  (I'm not used to getting up at 5:30, then hoofing it out the door to catch the bus to the marking center...), but the evenings with mom and the kiddos...priceless!  The busy days are, already, seeing me falling behind in comments, so please accept my apologies!  I'll do my best to catch up once those 12,000 exams are marked (each one, four times...thank heavens there's about 150 of us tackling this task....).  In the meantime, know that I'm sending thought bubbles filled with *oohs and ahhs* your way!

Thank you so much for spending time with me today; your visit brings me joy!
