Lite My Fire

Happy Wednesday!
Today I'm sharing a card I created for our 
Outdoor Fun Challenge
I'm sure at first glance you can guess where I am headed with my sassy card.
We have lots of bonfires at my house all summer long.
...and....Marshmallows are a MUST.
I think my husband will get a kick out of this one because he is always the fire starter.

I used a Linnie Blooms shapes card kit for the base and
a Linnie Blooms canvas pennant shape to accent the "you" on my sentiment.
I just added some yellow acrylic paint and doodling to make it unique.
You will never run out of options with these pieces. 
Now don't forget that you can share your designs on the 
Linnie Blooms Facebook page for a chance to be the Pick of the Week...
we'd love it if you did!

Have a wonderful day.

Tooth Fairy Pocket

Today is my DT post on the Linnie Blooms Design Team Blog and
I'm sharing this gift I created for a special little man
in our family who has his very first loose tooth.
I think little Maddox is going to be so tickled with his
"Tooth Fairy Pocket"
It holds a tag...
that holds an envelope...
 for his tooth.
And exchange for the tooth...
a little sumthin' sumthin' from the Tooth Fairy.
I monogramed the back.
Added a small handle just incase he'd prefer to hang it on his bed post
or door knob vs. under the pillow. 
You can find this darling little canvas flourish pocket in the Linnie Blooms Shop.
Be sure to peek in on the Linnie Blooms Facebook Page too.
We welcome you to share your designs using Linnie Blooms products on 
Facebook  where the "Pick of the Week" wins a $10 gift certificate.
Have a great day.

Hello My Sunny Friend

Hello and Happy Friday!

This is a card I created for my post on the 
Linnie Blooms Blog.
I was aiming toward a sun/floral direction when I created
the corner piece.  I used Linnie Blooms Card Kit and 
die cut pennant canvas pieces from the shapes set
to create the rays/petals.
I really love the layers and thickness of mixed media cards.
They make such a statement, don't you agree?
You can find these products and much more
Thanks for stopping by today.
I hope your day is really, really SUNNY!
