Think summer!

I made this with Lindsay's Summer Fun SVG and Printable set.   Be sure to stop by her blog The Frugal Crafter and see what she has to share, it's always something interesting.   This is a great set for kids party's!  My girlfriend said she saw the cutest card with 3 sandals on the front, they made her smile so could I make her a set of them.  Wait a minute, that was 3 pairs of sandals, sure no problem.  I fussed and fussed and I am still not 100% pleased, it needs something other than the button, hope I figure it out before we meet for lunch next week.  See that piece of twine, I am entering the Spicy Supply challenge at Gingersnap Creations
Sorry I have not been posting much these last couple of weeks.  We are re modeling and that seems to be taking up a lot of energy lately.  So many decisions to make, some days my mind is just spinning.  We probably should have done more throughout the years, because now it all needs to be done at once!  Exciting and scary at the same time, I am so worried I will mess it up!  I will try to get a few more cards done soon. 
Thanks for looking.  ~Diane
I changed my card and the picture of it.  I took my friend Gerri's suggestion to widen up the twine and add a little more.  I think it looks much better now, thanks Gerri!

  6. Your flip flops are so cute! Glad you're back, guess your house must be coming along. If you wanted to you could add more twine to the top it would help balance the dark bottom...Thanks for your sweet comments on my Kisses on the Praire winds. I really enjoyed the western theme this month at Gingersnaps...who knew I was a cowgirl at heart. LOL. take care, gerri
