Summer Memories


Kelly Light at Ripples  is trying to do something for the poor animals and birds affected by the gulf oil spill.
She has asked for small artcards that can be puchased for a $10 donation and has raised over $3,000 already.  She is doing a fantastic job, even though the whole project has really taken off in  a big way.  See the Ripples site for details.

This is the card I made using coloured pencil and it has already sold, so I'm pleased that someone liked it and also that $10 has gone to a good cause.  I will also have a little card of my own arriving soon, I bought one made with a lino print (something I'd love to have a go at this summer).

Little ripples  grow into waves!

I love that you put so much effort into this, knowing you wouldn't get the money yourself. It is a wonderful contribution. I'll be doing one later today, I hope!

So soft and beautiful - I can see why it sold. Reminds me of the beaches in central Florida where I grew up.

It is amazing how "real" it looks!

I was the lucky person to get your card on Ripple. I will put it up in my baby girl's room and hope to take her to a beach this lovely when she is older. Thank you for donating your art to such a good cause!

Sigrid - I'm honoured to have something I created in your daughter's room. Your card is in the post!
