Time For A Pedicure!


Hello friends and happy Thursday! Today's challenge over at SplitCoast today is to find fun ways to use EYELETS!!! Click on Julia's Ways To Use It challenge to join in the fun too!
As you can see, I used eyelets to string the sheer dotted ribbon thru and create the top part of the flip flop. Boy, do I love my Crop-a-Dile (a Christmas gift from my wonderful Mom and Dad!) Anyone else wonder how they ever survived crafting without one? I used my old *Announcements* SU! set to make them invitations--say, to a pool party or beach party...I don't have a pool and I don't live near a beach, so I'm not sure what the heck I'm going to do with these, lol! I was thinking these could be cute just to send as a *Happy Summer* or *Get Ready For Flipflops!* greeting or how about, *Time For A Pedicure*, what do you think? Know how flip flops often have decorative flowers or bling on them nowadays....well Gina K.'s bling & dazzle flowers worked famously for that! I just attached them to the ribbon with a purple brad, a dot of lavendar stickles for sparkle and done! Anyway, this was very quick and easy to make and I've included the pattern for those interested in making some too! Thanks so much for visiting and have great day! ~hugs and happy stamping~

I LOVE these! Here in Hawaii they are called "slippas" Like slippers, but with a pidgin accent. And EVERYONE wears them all the time, so these cards would be perfect for almost any occassion here. I just may have to case your creations! Thanks for the hugs and prayers for my Angel Baby. She's so much better today!
