Make it Monday and Retro Sketches


I made one more pocket card for this week's Make it Monday MIM68:  Pocket Cards, and then I almost forgot to post it.  Good thing I remembered--you never know which card will be a random winner, right?  I really wanted to use Flipping Out with the Aloha stamp set.  I did some background stamping with the Hibiscus flower from that set.  After I made this card, I saw what Marybeth did here, and I want to try that, too.



Relax






I have had so much crafting time this weekend.  It is a typical gloomy June weekend at our house, with coastal fog until late afternoons, and my daughter has been studying hard for her first set of high school finals.  She's been studying in my office, which means I can keep her company and craft at the same time--win--win.  Later we will be going to a swim party about 1 mile inland, where is is sure to be warm and sunny.  I clearly have summer on the brain.

I made this card for this week's Retro Sketches RS#14.  This is the first time I have ever rotated a sketch, and I hope I did it right.  I thought flip flops and ice cream went together perfectly.

  10. You are rocking the pocket cards Joyce. Aren't those flip flops the bomb? How perfect to pair the ice cream cone with the flip flops. I need to CASE that idea. I have never used my Sweet As Can Be stamp and die--shame on me.

  12. Ice cream and flip flops, what a wonderful combination, perfect for summer! Love your pocket card too, paired with the Aloha set is so clever, makes me want to get that set now and that will be your fault, right? Both are so too much fun.

  13. I really, really like those hibiscus flowers on your pocket card Joyce. That and the flip flops go so well together. I haven't seen those ice cream cones in a while...they really go together with the flip-flops, you thought of something none of the DT thought of! Very creative of you.
