Happy New Year!

I'm still in waiting mode for my camera to arrive! Now, I do know mail is not delivered on New Years Day, so I'm hoping Saturday the mail carrier will bring me my digital camera! Yes...I left it at my cousins house and she has to mail it to me. Ugh...Sadly I won't be participating in Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Challenge today because I have no way to photo my card. Be sure to check out Sharon's blog and the other Stamp Simply designers creations!

In celebration of Melanie Muenchinger's two years of blogging and illustrating for GinaK Designs, she is hosting a blog hop featuring designers who are sharing their creations with her stamp sets. And one of my favorite Melanie sets is Jumping For Joy! Take a peek of these creations from the past I created!

YES! Zebra flip flops! I embellished each flip flop using the zebra image on shrink art material and attaching to top of flip flops. Here is close up of the Zebra! And utilizing one of the sets sentiments, I adhered it to the back of each flip flop. Also, I pushed two brads through the laminated sentiment for extra staying power! I love this card! It is a mini card on a card! The striped paper clip is holding the mini card closed. Love the the ric rac and brad that embellishes the Zebra so well! Hop through the blogs and then go to Melanie's to discover all the ways you can win one of many prizes! Congratualtions, Melanie! Happy New Year and Happy Hopping!
