The Colors of Summer!




If you have not come from Connie's Cabana (aka blog),
be sure to start at the beginning, with Julie, so you can let us know what you think of the new colors.

Welcome to the Colors of Summer hop...
featuring FIVE new color bundles from 3 Girl JAM!
These colors are bold and eye catching...with all the fire of the sun and the breeze of the ocean!
What is your favorite bundle?


I can never pick a favorite.
So today, I am presenting two cards...
with mixed bundles! 


Here is my take on the heat of the sun.
I used Sunshine from the Sunny Meadows Collection along with
Barn Door from the Rustic Country Collection to recreate a fiery burst of color.

The large pearl brad and pearl bling can be found at the Eyelet Outlet.
Sentiment from Paper Makeup Stamps




I'm a water girl...
Grew up on Lake Erie.
Swim for an hour 3 times a week (when I'm not painting the entire house!)...
Love taking baths...

This is my take on a peaceful, breezy water front...
another great thing about summer.

Green Jeans and Denim.  I also used Blue Berry from the Summer Harvest Collection.

That leaves but one other collection I haven't told you about...
When I think of this one, I think I need chocolate dipped strawberries.
Click on the Collection link and let me know if you agree! 

I hope you have found some blog candy along the way!
If you aren't the lucky winner of the $20 gift certificate to the 3 Girl JAM store,
use the code:  NEWHOP for 30% your order during the hop dates.  (5/23-5/24).

Thank you so much for taking time to soak in the Colors of Summer!
Sail away on down to Georgiana's blog as you make your way.
We appreciate your comments and hope you find something to add to your own summer craft collection today!

the "water" made with the ribbon is a fun idea. Love the first card.
Looks like somebody is getting a medal. Like the way the colors come together.

I love both of your cards. Such a cool idea to use the ribbons to be the sun and the water. I will have to try this sometime.
