Happy Friday everyone!! It's hot but beautiful here in sunny California - definitely going to be some pool time for me today :-)  I love the summer, I hardly ever wear shoes except for maybe my flip flops so this card I am sharing today is perfect - it SPEAKS to me, heehee! This is another one from my stamp camp this past week - we had such a great time!  We used a fun set from the Summer Mini called Sunny Fun and it has such cute and fun images in them - like these flip flops!!! Don't you wish you owned a pair like these??!! LOL - we had a great time decorating them, everyone kind of did their own thing by either coloring or blinging or whatever they wanted to do! Some people even took them home and added a bunch of stuff - love that, it tells me they really liked the card!!! The patterned paper is from the main catalog and we have to say goodbye to it in six days! It is called Lap of Luxury and I used the heck out of this this past year - just love the colors, patterns, everything about it! The color combo for this card is one of my favorites: Basic Gray, Blushing Bride, and Concord Crush with some Very Vanilla - YUMMO!!!!  The flower was made using our new three-way punches - can you believe one punch can do three different designs???! Talk about getting more bang for you buck - I totally LOVE these!!! We actually used both of them and layered them together! They are called the Doily Triple Layer punch and the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch, and they can both be found in the Summer Mini! And, of course no flower is complete without some bling so we added a rhinestone to make it pop!  Totally fun and easy to put together, this card makes me smile!!!!  If it makes YOU smile, and you want the products used here, you can shop in my online store or email me directly and I will be happy to place your order for you! Remember, the main catalog items are retiring in SIX DAYS, so don't wait to put that order in - get it now before it's gone!!! I am going to be stamping today and getting my class schedule ready for July - can you believe it is almost July already?? Time sure does fly by :-) I hope you have a wonderful weekend planned that includes some creative time and family time! Enjoy - and, until tomorrow, Happy Stampin'!!!!
