Flip flopping away!

I had a very BIG deadline to meet this week.  My daughters birthday is being celebrated on Saturday and I had projects to get done.  For the past few years, I have got my old Singer sewing machine out and made a new purse for her to use.  Well, this year I went overboard on the pattern.  The pattern is from Sew Sweetness and is called the Kennedy Bag.  The pattern is free to download.  I got this pattern 6 weeks ago and immediately started looking for the hardware.  Couldn't find any that didn't have to ship from the east coast or China.  Finally, Craft Warehouse came to my rescue!  I had already gotten the material at Joanns.  Let the bag making begin!  Here are some pics.

The front of the bag

It has a big zippered pocket

Also a big divided pocket

OK bag is completed.  Next is the birthday card.  ScrappyDew to the rescue.  I used a file called Sunshine and Summertime 2014.  Now a few weeks back, my fellow dewette Kreative Ken of KenKreations posted the file and instructions on how to make a slider card using two pennies.  Well I had to give this a go.  I wanted spinning flip flops for the card.  But first here are the lyrics.

Recollections Paper 12x12, various scraps, Petaloo glitter stack, round 3D sticky foam dots and of course 2 bright shiny pennies.

So lets travel to the beach see the birthday card.

The flip flops spin across the card

Just love the inside!
(sorry I do not know how to do video's yet, it's on my list)  I think she will get a big kick out of this card.  One last little project for her birthday.  I had bought some composition books at Costco a while back.  I found some really cute Duck Tape.  I covered the inside and outside with it and presto chango a really cute journal complete.  I stuck it in the bag and wrapped them together.
 A couple of shirts and a big round carousel of gel pens and her birthday celebration can begin.  Heading to the casino tomorrow for some bingo action and all you can eat seafood buffet.  (i get the clam chowder, then get some salad shrimp and dump them in the chowder)

So danged happy that you could come visit my little corner of the blog-o-sphere today.  Oh, if you happen to hear a very excite scream, it's just me finally getting my first bingo!!!

Bright blessings, Jana
