Wearing your Flip Flops yet?

Happy Monday! Hope you had a great Easter weekend. It was on the cold side here with rain and chilling breezes, but we managed to spend some time outside yesterday as it all dried back up again - still not warm enough for me though.

I'm not really a flip flop kind of girl. I know, gasp, right? I just can't stand things between my toes. LOL Sandals are more my style. Is the weather nice enough for you to wear your flip flops yet? I hope so! Summer will be here before we know it. We are already planning our beach trip for August. Can't wait!

Today I have a card to show you. 

I used Miss Kate Cuttables "Tropical Bliss" file.

The cut files at Miss Kate Cuttables are so easy to use! I love them!!

Here's my card...

I used a color palette from the Colour Me challenge (I missed the deadline to enter though).

The card sketch is from Always Playing with Paper. She even includes the measurements for each element of the layout! Gotta love that!!

Everything was inked around the edges (distressing it for the Make My Monday challenge). Sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps, "Fun in the Sun," and background paper is from Doodlebug Designs "Sugar Shoppe" that you can get at the Royal Castle Shoppe.  All solid papers are Stampin' Up.  

Speaking of SU, FREE SHIPPING started today! Shop at and choose me as your demo (Janis Lewis). Free Shipping today through Friday, April 25th.

Supplies also purchased from  Royal Castle Shoppe are the buttons, foam squares (love foam squares), and sequins.

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I've been up to.
