Scrapbookaholic by Abby Challenge #8 Red, White and Blue!

Good morning everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!

 It's defenitley summer here it was so hot here in San Antonio that we didn't even go outside all weekend we stayed in and played with our WII and PS3 lol. One thing when you think of summer is Fourth of July fireworks and RED, WHITE & BLUE,at least that is what I think of {but there will be no fireworks here this year cause of the drout :(} 

This week over at Scrapbookaholic By Abby we are having a Red, White and Blue Challenge! You can make ANY project with ANY theme as long as it has those 3 colors! Easy Peasy right! So get out your Cricuts, Gyspy's, stamps and of course paper and get creating! I can't wait to see what you all make!!  

For my project today I made this cute card that features my FAVORITE things I used during summer, MY FLIP FLOPS and there is a stamp from K Andrew's Splashtastic summer I just HAD to use!! Oh how I love them lol!! I went to Walmart last week and saw some cute patriotic ones and that is what I thought about when I made this!
Aren't those Faces aborable!! They go perfectly with the sentiments!
I could not find paper I wanted for the flip flops that I wanted sooo.
I used white cardstock and with Amy Chomas pens I put the blue stars!

The way I did this was on my gypsy I picked out my  flip flops then got a star from the george cart and made it the size I wanted it then I duplicated it and placed it around the flip flop cut. BEFORE I clicked cut, using the hide contour I took out the flip flops from the cut leaving only the stars. Put the pen in and Viola stars! Then I went back took off the stars unhide the flip flops and cut them out, perfect! I really loved the way it came out!!
