Hello, Blogger-land pals! Sorry to have been M.I.A. this past fortnight... We have had back-to-back out-of-town family visiting, a stray for a couple of days, and I've been filling in at work for peeps off on vacation, so NO time to play. Well, hardly any. My sister, visiting from Amsterdam, and I were able to get inky one evening, trying out new supplies together as we made anniversary cards for our parents (it doesn't get much better than that!).
Lil' Inker (use the link to see the complete set).
The signature perforations on these dies really adds to their interest, and all the little do-dads mean you can personalize the flip-flops ad infinitum.
The sentiments on this set are to DIE for, too--so punny. I made several cards in no time--the inspiration just kept coming.
Retro-Sketches #23 Challenge.
Here is the sketch. I turned it on its side to allow for more space for the flip-flops.
I have not been wearing sandals much this summer (sad!). There is a "no-open-toed shoes" rule at work, and although I wouldn't think of wearing flip-flops to work, I don't seem to be wearing them outside of it either. I have a lovely collection of summer footwear (collecting dust!), hence the idea of a pair for every day of the week.
I cut multiple pairs of flip-flops from craft foam, which adds even more dimension, and mixed the colours as I put them together.
Here's the inside of the final card.
Counting down the days 'til I get to wear 'em...
