Hello summer, goodbye Tiffany Doodles!

Since today is the 7th, it's time for another challenge at Tiffany Doodles. This month's theme is "Steppin' into Summer" and Tiffany's been creating a lot of fun, summery digis in her store.


I decided to use the flip flops and do some paper piecing again. I printed out the digi on some patterned paper and colored the straps and soles with a Copic marker. The background is Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain stamp and I layered the flip flops on a scrap of notebook card. The sentiment was handstamped and some colorful pennants finished the card. 

Sadly, this is my last card as a design team member for Tiffany Doodles. It's been a fun ride and I can't believe how quickly a year went by! Thank you, Tiffany, for allowing me to be a part of your team and letting me create with your awesome digis!

And I'm so excited to share that there are three new members to the Tiffany Doodles team! AnetteJudy, and Sally have all climbed on board and are knocking out some amazing cards! Please visit their blogs to see what they've done with Tiffany's Doodles.

The challenge runs until June 21st and you can win a $10 voucher to be used in the store! We hope you'll join us....good luck!




Trivia note: In Hawaii, "flip flops" are called rubber slippers. Every household has several pairs per person in assorted colors. It may be summertime footwear, but here in the isles, it's every day footwear. My daughter and her bridal party even wore some dressy ones for her wedding!

  6. Love this festive, summery card, Donna! I'm sure Tiffany is sad to see you go, all your work was so inspiring! Flip flops are my daily wear too! I have one for indoors and some for outdoors, and I try not to mix them up or else I go crazy...lol! Hubby thinks it's funny that I keep the flip flops separated, lol.

  24. Oohhh, how fun! We call flip flops thongs here but not to be confused with the undergarment. LOL Are the Havanaias ones very popular there, too?
