New Summer with Flip-flops!

We are almost at the half-way point of summer break. Of course, here in Oregon our summer lasts through the first few weeks of October before those dreaded rains and gray skies move in (for 6 months!!)

Today my boys finally realized that when I say "I've got a class" or "I'm working" that I mean for my company. My middle guy actually thought that I was attending card classes, not teaching them. Hah! Now they want to design cards for people to make. I think maybe we'll give that a shot for their friends! And maybe I'll get a chance to post their creations, too.

On to the last of my summer cards. I'll be taking a break and vacationing with family, cleaning out old papers and making a stack of donatable craft items (here's where I donate.) And of course, designing fall and winter classes, too. Here's what I made this weekend:
This 3" x 6" card has an embossed label that reads "Summer Fun"
This card is a little bohemian in style and has a 3-D paper ribbon and gemstones

This card is just too cute with little flip-flops on the front with retro paper and a layered flower.
Do you remember when we used to call "flip-flops" thongs? It took a while to get into the hang of calling them flip-flops....many embarrassing moments ;)

I am having a lovely about you?
