Fresh Squeezed Stamps & Flip Flops!

flipflopsMy last official post as Guestie for Fresh Squeezed Stamps . Again, I’ve gone with just a small image and tried to give it lots of movement. With a little colour and a little imagination- you can create a card with some colour & shape. To help give it some focus- I’ve added a little pattern & sparkle on just one of the flipflops to help balance out the sentiment. It does look like the card isn’t straight, but it’s my bad photography!!

I have truly loved being part of the July Release & guest posts. The stamps were great fun & I’ve tried to do something different with each set. This one was from the Beachy Keen set- loved the summery feel of that one.


Life is just better in flip flops- unless you’re me & little, & tripped over in the drive to your house. I remember being in pain. I’m not the biggest lover of flip flops unless they’re to colour in!

This week, there have been flip flops, flops & flips. We’ve been away on a holiday..of challenges!

One of mine managed to break her flip flops. Fortunately she had brought half of all the shoes she possessed, so the breakage was of little concern. The flops were the weather, the ability of some to sleep in a confined space and less happily, a poorly littlie. We tried to make the best of it. That’s what you do. Isn’t it.

We’re British.

The flips? Well , any of you with half an idea of the make-up of our family may well get the whole idea very quickly. We did smile (some more than others) and we baked, barbequed, beached & bickered. There was also forgiveness, flouncing, flies and fevers.

We played, postured, pretended & played lots of board games.

Well I’d better go. there’s still rather a lot of wet washing to get through!

See you when I’ve recovered! xx

    I LOVE THIS so much…it speaks to the HI girl in me. We call them “slippahs” there. Such a unique rainbow~
