Summer of Colour - Raspberry, Tangerine, Lemon

Last week of Summer of Colour – time flies when you are having fun! So here is my last Boys of Summer installment.
Hank and Gordon have had a bromance since grade school. They’ve known each other since they’re moms met in the local SuperSave oh so many years ago…

Over the years they’ve become renown in the neighborhood for their BBQ’s . “We make the best pork ribs in town” Hank boasts. Their wives Angie and Dolly can’t agree more (and are grateful for the summer reprieve from having to do all the cooking).

But it has not always been this way – we don’t talk about the kerosene incident a few years back when Gordon committed a serious lack of judgment (“It was all I could find in the garage” he says with a sheepish grin). 

Yes the colors are raspberry, tangerine and lemon (pic does not quite show it) – another gesso textured background. The graphics/text actually are a raspberry colour – found in a Betty Crocker Outdoor Cook Book. Snuck some washi tape in as well… Wow six weeks went incredibly fast! I enjoyed all the color matches Kristin gave us and cannot wait till next year! Enjoy. Jewels


  1. I will miss the wonderful back stories that go with your fabulous 'Boys of Summer' cards!

    Silly old Gordon (I wonder if the 'kerosene incident' was responsible for blowing off his hair?!).
