CASology #12


 Welcome to Week 12 of CASology!  Here's the cue card for this week:



I was just saying in a previous post that I didn't have much in the shoe department in my stamp collection.  However, I just recently received this cute flip flop die which is perfect for the challenge!  It's still flip flop weather here.  The coolness of the weekend is gone and the humidity is back with a vengeance.  Blerg!  I kept the colour scheme super simple and used an impression plate for a bit of texture on the yellow background.  And, of course, I had to add a few gems!  :)  

What shoes have you got tucked away in your crafty closets?  Can't wait to see them!  And be sure and take a look at the gorgeous creations by the rest of the design team:





Also this week's guest designer:

So sweet. It is a happy day when one can wear flip flops. I'm still in mine, as it is still summer here in San Diego.

LOL, I love that word 'flip flop' - here is Australia we call them 'thongs' and back home in NZ they are known as 'jandals'. Love the colours and the cute little frame :)

I can't wait to play along again finally - I got an idea right away & no one else has done it yet. THAT NEVER HAPPENS! Love the flip-flops - and tucking them in the polaroid like that totally makes me think of the hipster Instagram photos all over FB...but in a GOOD way :)
