Hey Baby

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! Any plans for the weekend?

It's CAS-ual Fridays time, and this week's challenge should be easy and fun:

Polka dot stamps, patterned paper, cardstock, ribbon, whatever you can think of.

When I think of polka dots, milk cartons aren't exactly the first thing to come to mind, but that's what I made:

Isn't that smile cute? I was flipping through my die-cutting files and saw the Oishii SVG file from Lettering Delights (I used the same collection on THIS card). The top of the milk carton opens, and you can put a treat inside.

I was thinking it would be good as a back-to-school treat for my kids, but I thought it would also work as a baby shower favor box (or to put a gift card inside as a present). I went with the baby theme for the tag:

The sentiment is from Mama Elephant--I was glad it fit on the tiny tag.

The winner of this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge will win a gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp:

You can link up your projects HERE. I hope you'll play along!
