Back to Summer

Okay, so by now anyone that ever checks in the "Raspberry Room" realizes I'm not exactly the dedicated blogger . . . . . yet. I hope to eventually post regularly (at least once a week). That being said, I have a few projects from the summer. The first is a group of retirement dinner invitations that had a beach theme.  This was fun.

Images are from Flourishes "Beach Life" and Stampin Up's "Do the Hula".  The little flip flops are an old punch I found in my stash and the coloring is done with Copic markers ( a medium I have yet to master).

Now on to my have a great summer cards for my grands. We all know kids love to receive mail, so I try to send one to my grandson and granddaughter at the beginning of each season. These were there "Happy Summer" cards this year. Both were created with images from Flourishes "Sweet Days of Summer" and can be found here; http://shop.flourishes.org/category_s/55.htm . The nature of these silhouette images lend to an easy quick card. A little background texture and lots of sponging, and done. The metal tag rims were recolored with Copic markers.

That's it for now, hope to be back soon with some fall projects. Til then . . .
Live Well, Laugh Often & Love Much,
