Latte's and the Beach

First up, I wanted to use the retro sketch for this week. 
 One of my most recent purchases was some Gourmet Rubber Stamps.  I pulled out this adorable little coffee cup and started in.  It was fun to make my little tag accent have a kitchen look to it with the red gingham paper in the tiny squares.
 I used a Sizzix embossing folder with a honeycomb pattern on the red cardstock.  I have purchased a cup of coffee that looked just like this with that foam heart on the top so it was so fun to color this one. 
 Here is their cute sketch. 
 Now, for our "beach" theme, my card using the Card Positioning Systems sketch for this week.  On my last lss visit, I picked up a bunch of Authentique paper from this great collection. 
 The postcard image is part of one of the pieces of patterned paper.  I added the little sticker border with some Liquid Pearls.
 Here is the CPS sketch that I followed.
AND...some photos to share.
 Guess what we were doing this last Sunday afternoon on a wonderful summer day?  Yep, we opened a new big bottle of bubble soap.
 His big sister usually makes the bubbles and he usually chases them. This year he got control of the wand!

How does it get any cuter!!!!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
