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,

  1. Hey Jean! I'm hoping you are doing OK and did not sustain any issues from the storm. I certainly hope you are OK. Just stopped in to say hello. Your cards are wonderful. I especially love the retirement invitations. You did an amazing job on those. Again, hope you are OK. . .Best, Curt

  2. Thanks for your concern Curt. We are fine, compared to many we were merely inconvenienced. Lost power with hurricane sandy for only about 30 hrs (some still do not have back). Then with the 'nor easter we lost power again for about 18 hrs. We lost our huge blue spruce (there goes my dream of it being in Rockefeller Ctr,lol) but we have are home and family. We are blessed.

  3. Good Morning! Just stopping by to check in on you and hoping that you are well! Best, Curt

  4. Hey there! Wanted to make sure I stopped by to tell you I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you all the best of the New Year! Best, Curt
