Fresh Brewed Designs --- Summer Fun!

Summ....Summ.... Summertime! Wow, can you believe it's already July and that we just celebrated the 4th? You know what that means don't you? Along with fun summertime activities with family and friends, it's time for another Fresh Brewed Designs blog hop with some fantastic fun images! We are so excited to share these with you and have lots of wonderful inspirational creativity along the way from our talented design team. These ladies are some of the best so be sure to leave them a comment with your appreciation of their efforts. If you have hopped here from the wonderful creation by Stacy then you are on the right path, but if this is your first stop then it would be best to go back and start here because leaving a comment on each blog that means one lucky person gets the opportunity to choose 3 images from the store and you certainly wouldn't want to miss out on that, now would you???

Here is my card using three FBD images:  "Peace Be Still" is the sunset and beach image and I placed Daniel and Grace there with their sand buckets.  What better place to spend a summer day than at the beach?  And what better way to end a day at the beach than to watch the sunset.  Now, if you are on the Atlantic coast, this would probably be a sunrise, and Daniel and Grace are up really early for a fun day in the sun!

I colored the images with Copics, but I have to say that I am not at all pleased with the job I did on the sunset/sunrise.  It's not the Copics' fault.  I think I regressed to a 5-year-old Barb coloring with crayons!  I don't know, but it is very colorful.


Now I strongly recommend getting this psychedelic picture out of your head by hopping on over to sweet Kelly's blog for a really exciting & wonderful creation that is in store for you.

We also would love to “catch” you displaying our badge on your blog... and playing in our next challenge! Hope to see you there, now get a move on!  As always, thank you for stopping by!

Gorgeous, Barb! This took my breath away when I saw it earlier but your background silhouetting is just as lovely as can be! I was at the beach all day yesterday and never saw anything as beautiful as your card - it's stunning! Well done! x0x0

The Sunrise/Sunset, depending on which coast you are on, is just perfect for these two playing on the beach, love it.
