I just started hearing cicadas this past weekend, which to me means summer is really in high gear. And what better way to celebrate the dog days of summer than with this cheery range of watercolor art cards festooned with flamingos, palm trees and succulent pineapples from Carde Blanche?

The company’s Lori Christensen told me that the watercolors are by an artist in Denmark, who is actually her penpal. “We met two years ago through social media and through our correspondence and envelopes of goodies back and forth, I discovered her talent with watercolors. We decided to collaborate.”

Here are the bright fruits (no pun intended) of their labors.

Each box in the Beverly Hills Collection contains nine cards (3 of each design) and 10 kraft envelopes for $22/each. They’re perfect for corresponding with your pen pal — or anyone else for that matter!
