BLOOM – It’s a Firecracker Design Blog Hop!

Howdy folks! It’s time for our monthly Firecracker Design by Pamela Blog Hop. This month, we have a springy word play theme. Our task is to use a springy word and I chose Bloom, and make each letter apply to my card in some way. At least one letter should represent: 1) Color, 2) Embellishment, 3) Image. The remaining letters are my choice how to apply them.

Okidoki. Here we go.

B – Balloons (image)
L – Lace (embellishment)
O – Orange (color)
O – Onyx Black (it was a tough one so I tried to be creative…)
M – Metal (Metal brad, metal flower! Yihaa, I made it!)

Baloons The stamp I’ve used is an awesome digi called Blow Me Away which includes both balloons and cute sentiment. I’ve paper pieced the balloons with my oh so loved Green at Heart papers and coated them with Glossy Accent.

Now over to the Blog Hop info:

The official start time of this Hop is Friday, at 8:00 AM (EST). If you arrived early, please be patient as all the links may not be live yet.

This is a “circular blog hop” where the only beginning is wherever you start!! You will know you are at the end of your blog hop when you’ve come back to the blog you’ve started from! (It’s not a huge circle…so it should be easy to remember where you started.)


The winner of a prize – Some Super Red Rubber - will be chosen from a mystery blog hostess that we don’t even know who it will be until the hop is over…so that’s why you’ll want to leave a comment on EVERY blog, so you don’t miss out!


**To find out if you’ve won… you will be contacted by Pamela via e-mail (so be sure to leave it with your comment.) and you can also find out on Pamela’s blog after the blog hop ends on Mon, at 8:00 PM (EST).**


Now, to continue the circle, you will need to hop on over to

and keep going until you’ve come back to where you’ve started! Thanks so much for playing along with us and we hope you have a great time!

Thanks for joining us!!!
