Flip Flop Birthday

Hi Everyone!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Today I made the cutest card for my sister's birthday. I made it with the challenge over at K Andrews Simply Sunday Challenge in mind.  The challenge is to use a face in your project.  I used the Peachy Keen Everyday Faces.  They are soooo cute!

Cricut Cartridge Cheerful Seasons
Peachy Keen Everyday Faces Stamp set
Stampin' Up! Basic Black ink
Cardstock from my stash
Red ribbon from Joanns
Patterned paper is from Creative Memories, I believe :)
Bling on flip flops are brads I picked up at Big Lots
Martha Stewarts Border punch (I picked up recently at TJMaxx.)
Tiny Tag and sentiment are from Papertrey Ink (my newest purchase. Love it!)

Don't look too closely. I have some glue residue on the flip-flops and my alignment wasn't exact.  I use to stress over these things but I'm learning not to sweat the small stuff.  Only you and I card-makers will notice these small flaws.

Thanks again for stopping by.  Your support and comments make me smile!

Hugs and TTFN,


  1. Very cute, I love the flip flops. Great colors. Good Luck!

  6. Oh Elaine, seriously dont sweat the small stuff. I didnt notice the "mis-alignment or the glue residue". We are our own worst critics. Cute card. The flip flops look soo happy to be on the beach.
