Summer Heat at The Sisterhood of Crafters

Hi There,
It certainly has been busy around here, how about you??
And can you believe that in about 6 weeks 
the kiddos will be heading back to school?
Summer sure does fly by!!

Our new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters
is "Summer Heat" and hosted by Vickie!


Well, you have been seeing my flip flop cards the last week
or so, and you might of read I mentioned
I am addicted to making them.
Well, this beauty is actually the first one I made before the other two.
You might say this one was what inspired me to do two more.

I once again used the wonderful flip flop digital file
Did you know you can purchase this cut file for a mere $1.50?
And it is so easy to make.!!

I used some paper I have had in my stash forever it seems.
I cut it down from it's 12 x 12 size to 8 1/2 x 11 to fit my printer
I didn't use the Explore for this one, just cut it by hand...easy!!


I stitched around my flip flop with a multi color thread.
The little sequin flowers are from Paper Sweeties and called Tuti Fruiti.
The ribbon is from the ribbon club I belong to at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I added a little tag punched with a tiny SU tag punch, 
the "hello" is also from SU.
To finish I adhered a flower 
with a "snippet" from a silk flower I had been saving!

Take a peek at what my "sistahs" have created to inspire you at 
The Sisterhood....and join in the challenge with us!!

This is very creative! I love that you printed it directly onto the design paper and then cut out. Love the gorgeous ribbon; such a great shade of orange!
