Fabulous Freebie Friday!

Head over to Shelly's Images and pick up a Fabulous Freebie today!!  I've already gotten out my flip flops and sandals - truth be told, if I could wear them all year round, I would in a heart beat.....unfortunately with Michigan weather, come November, I'd bee losing digits to frost bite I fear.  Heck, even though it's mid-April, they're talking about snow flurries tonight....WHAT?! 
At least with this great image from Shelly I can dream about tropical weather and my feet in my funky & fun flip flops.  :)
For this card I used the TTT Challenge #2 at Shelly's Images - stop by and check it out.  Inspiration challenges are so much fun!!
Image - Shelly's Images Freebie Flip Flops (paper pieced)
Paper - Bazzill cardstock, kraft cardstock & left over Flair Designs printed papers
Cricut - Life's a Beach cart using card feature
Punch - Fiskars Apron Punch
Miscellanous - Orange paint on thong of flip flop, Chestnut Roan Ink, Studio G Tropical Paradise Stamp, $1 Bling from Michaels, Feltie flowers from Michaels, dimensionals on flip flops & sentiment
I love the way this turned out - I had something in mind, but it took a turn and became something even better than what I imagined. 
I LOVE projects like that!!!
TGIF!  Happy Friday! 
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend - we're headed to my folks again this weekend for more work around the farm - more fences, the grass needs mowing and flower beds need cleaning.  I'm sure at some point I'll be doing a little barn shoveling too! 
Hopin' for some craftin on Sunday!
Happy Craftin'!


  1. Love your card.... looks great... and the freebie.... yummy LOL

  2. This is fantastic! I feel like I'm on vaca just looking at it! Love it!

  3. Min this is beautiful, love the summery feel and colours. I too would wear my flip flops all year round but winter here may not be as cold as yours but it is still too chilly for flip flops.
