I wanted to make a happy little campfire themed card since we’ve been having our fair share of backyard fire pit evenings this summer. With roasted marshmallows, s’mores and sparklers, of course! The evenings this summer have been absolutely perfect for such an activity and we’re really enjoying them!
I used Lawn Fawn’s Love You S’more & Into the Woods sets to create this card. I paired the stamped images and sentiment with one of the speech bubbles from Avery Elle’s Oh Yeah Dies. The stamping was done with Memento Rich Cocoa Ink & the cute little fox was colored with Copic Markers. Both the speech bubble and fox were popped up using foam dots to add a little dimension to the card. I added a little yellow flower sequin from Lawn Fawn for interest and a little glimmer to the roasted marshmallow with a Wink of Stella Brush Glitter Marker. I’m thinking this card will go to our neighbor who has been a steady playmate for the boys this summer!
We roasted marshmallows on our trip to Michigan last week! We discovered a new park in the town we were staying in which had a fire pit and a fun little water play area.
DH ran after some marshmallows and matches while the boys collected some twigs and we had an impromptu campfire one evening! DH once again explained the process involved to achieve a perfectly roasted marshmallow to the boys.
However, someone once again ignored the message…
…because he actually likes ’em this way (fully ignited and then blown out like a birthday candle)!
Owls are taking over my brain now as we prepare to celebrate DD’s first birthday with extended family this weekend! We did let her enjoy a little chocolate on her actual birthday just because that’s what a girl is supposed to do on such an occasion!
