Hip Hop Flip Flop! Another RRRR Blog Hop!!! :)

Hi Everyone!

It is the 13th of the month so it's time for another Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings blog hop!

If you found your way here from Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings, you are in the right place!
If you just happened on to my blog, head on back there, because that it where it all starts! :)
You don't want to miss any of the awesome projects the girls have created for your viewing pleasure...or a chance at a great prize from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Here is my card...


I did a bit of CASEing this time, I saw an adorable card with a "flip flop" tutorial that Vickie Papaioannou did for the Lily Pad Cards blog. You should really go check it out! :)   HERE'S THE LINK.
BUT WAIT!!!!
Don't head off to check out the tutorial until after you have left a comment.  You can't win the hop prize if you don't leave a comment!  ;)  ;)
When I saw Vicky's card, I knew instantly which of this month's Really Reasonable Ribbon's July Ribbon of the Month Club styles I would use. It just screams FLIP FLOPS!  ;)



Here is a close up of the fun ribbon and flip flops.


I used some pretty My Mind's Eye "Summer Song" designer paper, Discount Card Stock's amazing 110# Brilliant White (card base and square) and 130# Brilliant White (for the bottoms of the flip flops).
The fun sentiment is from a discontinued  Simon Says Stamp original set. Sorry...didn't realize it until I went to link it. ;(
BTW...I thought the sentiment worked perfect even though it came from a "frog" set.  We are on a "HOP", the flip flop tutorial is so fun I want to SKIP, and before long, you will be "JUMP"ing on the the next link of the hop!  :)

Bonnie will be giving away a July Ribbon Monthly Club kit plus some other goodies to a random commentor so please make sure and comment on all of the girl's projects to increase your chances of winning!



Your next stop on the hop is Andrea's Creative Paper Trail. You're gonna love it! :)
Thanks so much for dropping by today!
Hugs,
True :D
