Summer Giggles


I thought this would be a cute card to send to one of my granddaughters for the summer. Like most little ten year old girls (I guess) she has about 20 pairs of flip flops! Of course, I have a few pairs myself and love wearing them in the summertime.

This was actually a sketch I had seen the other day but it just had four squares instead of the three squares and rectangle. Just thought I'd change it up a bit. I never just run ribbon across my card - and I mean never! I always add a bow or something. Again, thought I'd change it up a little. The images for my card are from SU Just Beachy and Warm Words.

This is for three different challenges. I'm not real good about looking up all the challenges and seeing what they are but if you'll go to Karen's Feline Playful blog she lists a bunch of the challenges and what they are doing for the week....ie. sketch, color, theme.

Anyway, this is for CAS-tastic Wednesday Challenge, (bling), Crafty Creations Challenges (summer) and Shirley's2Girls challenge (summer accessory).


Also, just giving a SHOUT-OUT to the Always Playing with Paper challenge - I was again named one of the "Cut Above" last week! Very excited about that!!! This week their theme is "Vintage" so be sure and check it out and play along.


Thanks for stopping by...............

No, Lynn, I'm fairly certain it's *all* 10 year old girls and their flip flops. ;o)

I know my twelve year old has many pairs of flip flops...although we call them thongs in Australia! Cute card!

Adorable (and I'm saying that as I wear my favorite pair of flip flops!) I love the fish w/ the google eye!

Congrats on being a cut above too (but I knew you were anyway!!)

Funny how I only have one pair of flip flops but I wear them everywhere! Probably time to get a new pair... or two! Super cute card!

Lynn, I know your grand-daughter will love this card. Isn't it liberating to get out of your comfort zone and change things up a bit! :-)

I like your fun composition of flip flops and ferocious fish. This is one of those sets I pondered about getting, decided I wouldn't use it enough so I didn't buy it but everytime I see it used I wish I had got it afterall.
