Time for Summer?

We are still waiting for Spring in London so today my card is to cheer us up and to look forward to some much needed sun!

The idea for this card came from the photo challenge this week at Addicted to Stamps and More and the 'travel' code word at Casology Doesn't this photo make you dream of the Summer and travelling for your hols???

At first I was going to do a 'drink' inspired card until I saw Kylie's card here and I loved her idea of flip flops so went in that direction instead. I remembered by cousin Lynn sent me this flip flop card and decided this would be perfect to case. And here is my version:

The twine is meant to represent the straw hat in the photo. And the wood in the middle is to represent the deckchair. This wood is actually a kebab stick cut up to fit the size of the card!!

Oh come on Summer, hurry up! Until then we have our dreams.
Happy Stamping my friends x


  1. Clever use of texture for a clean design! I also think you've picked a perfect color for the background to make a sandy beach for your flip flops!

  2. Amen to summer hurrying up to get here. Love this CASE!!! The touch of scoring is perfection.

  3. Well I love your thongs!!! Hehehe. I am so happy that I was able to inspire you to use them. I love the texture you have used and the way you interpreted the photo!! Great CAS card. Thanks so much for playing aling at ATSM!!! xx

  4. Love the texture you added to your card with the string and wood. Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

  5. I's been raining here since August 2012! But your card evokes every lazy aspect of summer...especially the jute and kebabs stick!
