Peace, Love and Flip Flops!

It's a busy day today - lots of fun stuff!  An afternoon stamping with friends, an evening at dinner and then my friend's choir concert and it's finals week in my current class.  So I had a half an hour this morning to play - and it's a very rare card that I can finish in half an hour.  But I had a plan to use flip flops for a niece's birthday.  (Sadly, this plan changed when I realized the stamp set didn't have a birthday sentiment - but it was still a plan.)  First, I saw the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches - perfect space for some flip-flops.  Then I saw the colors at color throwdown - perfect colors for my favorite sentiment in the set!

Peace Love Flip Flops

So I'm all done - and then I noticed my mistake - anybody see it?  This die set comes with a number of toppers for the flip flops.  I didn't use the actual flip flop topper because it would have been hidden by the bow that I wanted to use.  So I don't think these are technically flip-flops, are they??  Flip-flops have the little strappy thing for the big toe - can they also be little slip-ons like these?  It's just like me to obsess over stupid things like this!!

Love the card. Pretty sure they qualify for flip-flop (they'd make the sound as you walk anyway!). The pattern paper has such a tiny pattern - perfect for the flip-flops.

So cute! Love the little bows!

If you slide them on like this they will make that flip flop sound. So they must still be flip flops! What a fun card, Kim!

Ha, ha, i can relate to that, fussing over little details. :-)
Anyway, I think your card is FAB!
Subtle, fun and flip flops, what more could one want?
Enjoy your day!
Bye from the Netherlands,

Hi Kim, those flip flop sandals are fab! Hope your weekend is a bit more relaxing! Xx

And that's why your cards are so wonderful - because you are so detail oriented! This is summery sweet and the flip flops are perfect! Don't worry that they are slip ons - we'll just call them slip slops!

Well I don't know if there are "rules" for what constitutes a flip-flop for a card, but I want those, Kims! I can't stand those little thingies between my toes, so, seriously, I WANT those!!

Don't do strappy things for big toes so these are the new improved version of flip flops, Kim ... and sooo pretty ... especially the bows! Anita :)

Just adorable! Love the patterned flip flops. Thanks for joining us for this week's Color Throwdown.

Great card Kim! To me, any shoes that make the "flop flop" sound when you walk around are flip flops! So these qualify for sure! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
