Life is better in Flip Flops!!

Happy first full day of summer my friends!! It's going to be a gorgeous day here in Southwestern Montana!!!  I think we are going to take time out this afternoon to go on a hike and take advantage of the nice weather!!  There's nothing better than getting out and enjoying the amazing landscape here in the Gallatin Valley.  We are truly blessed here indeed!!

Only two more days until Farmer's Market and I've been working like a crazy woman trying to replenish my stock after last week's opening day!!!  What a wonderful day it was and I'm forever grateful to those of you who have purchased my cards, cookbooks, and journals!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

I will have several new items in this week's market and they will include a few cards made with Papertrey Ink's Flipping Out Stamps and Dies.  I am loving all the possibilities with these sweet new stamps.  One of my favorite's in the set is the sentiment, "Life is Better in Flip Flops"!  I so agree, although I would be wearing my birkenstock's rather than flip flops.  But, that is what summer is all about - rest, relaxation and reveling in the sunshine!!
I used some October Afternoon Sidewalks papers in these cards along with Flipping Out and On the Farm stamps.
 Don't you just love the detail on the flip flops!  I cut the flower tops out of cream felt and added some Copic Colored rhinestones.  I just love that you can change the colors of jewels with Copics!!!

This card is a little bright and crazy, but all the color totally reminds me of a bright summer day!!

Is that the umbrella from scattered showers I spy as a beach umbrella? Just brilliant. I love all of these fun and bright happy cards.

Such a fantastic card, Kristii, I agree I would live in flip flops if I didn't live in Oregon!!
