Thoughts of Summer

Thoughts of Summer can take you anywhere - hectic family vacations and road trips; adventures while boating, hiking, or camping; sounds of music and smells from the grill at cookouts; bright colors from butterflies, flowers, and ripening fruit; sand in the floorboard of your car and the smell of sunscreen...the list goes on and on.



Our guest designer, Cindy, used the Flourish Thinlits to create this celebration card full of flowers.  Visit her blog here to see how she created this beautiful watercolor look.



Debbie created this cold beverage punch art card (yum!) featuring the Festive Birthday product suite.  Please hop over to her blog post here to get more information about it.

Jennifer spends her summers with family, which always involves a camera to capture family moments.  Find out more about this Snappy Birthday card by visiting her blog here.



Karla continues her series of framed art inserts, bringing us thoughts of sailing during the summer.  Can you smell the summer breeze?  See this framed art on her blog here.



Lemonade is definitely on Rachel's mind for summer.  She made this super cute mason jar gift featuring the Jar of Love stamp set and coordinating framelits dies.  Check out more from her blog here.
 

Thank you for stopping in again on this Fabulous Friday!  See you here again next week!
