Flip flop time!


Summer may not be officially here yet, but we've had a few flip flop wearing days.  (Shhh!  Don't tell anyone but I don't like wearing flip flops!)   Now that I've shocked you all, I'll show you a card made with some really cute flip flops from Doodle Pantry.  


I used a pre-colored image from the Flip Flops set.


This card makes me feel like a schizophrenic crafter!  I don't like the color purple, but I like it on this card and many that I've seen others make.  Another example...  I don't like or use much bling, but I love it on others' creations.  Can't think of them at the moment, but there are other things that are just not my style, but I love them when I see them.  Maybe that means I have a sophisticated creative palette.  Or maybe I'm just nuts!! :)

Challenge...
The Paper Players #148 - summer holiday -I think my card works... the only time I wore flip flops was when we were on vacation at my grandparents cottage on a lake!  :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!!

I love this card, Debbie! I absolutely agree with the sentiment... I am a flip-flops all year round kinda girl! How funny that you don't even like them! :)

Truer words were never spoken - life IS better in flip flops! I'm thankful that I live in an area where I can wear them almost year round! Love the fun image and pretty colors - very cute card!

Terrific card, I do love the colour purple but very seldom use it on my cards, for some reason I have trouble getting the colours to blend together. Laurie's pre-coloured images are just so great, love using them!

I don't like them either :) I hate the bit that goes between my toes...shudder...as for liking things that just aren't your style, can't you be both nuts & sophisticated? lol!

I love your card...it looks more soft wine than purple and I wish I could find those colors in the craft store to make cards. Certain flip flops I like and some I don't...haha Great CAS card!

Totally adorable. I am so ready for summer but I think Mother Nature just can't decide. We seem to be on a seesaw. LOL! Love the layout! Happy weekend!

This is the perfect summer card! It has been to cold here to wear flip flops, ugh! Can't wait for summer!

I know there are some people who just don't like flip flops but your card is too cute - I have flip flops on now and can't say that I haven't had black/blue toes from wearing the darn things. Great job.

Asha said...

Yep, not a fan of flip flops (not comfy for the toes!) but I am loving this card! It screams summer, beach and all that.
