Inspiration from Little Miss Muffet

Good morning fellow bloggers!

Today I have a card to share with you... it's very clean and simple (I'm liking the CAS approach a lot at the moment)... I just felt it didn't need much with this lovely Pollycraft stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. I've coloured her with Triamarkers and Flexmarkers from Letraset. To finish off I couldn't resist a bit of sparkle on her wings, a sweet french sentiment and of course a bit of doodling! Pop over to the Little Miss Muffet blog to see some more gorgeous creations from the other DT girls... you're sure to be inspired! And don't forget... there's still time to join in our EASTER challenge, you could win yourself some fab digital stamps from Little Miss Muffet Stamps! Hope you can join us...

I ♥ Promarkers - Spring is in the Air
Stamp: Clover Dancing with Dragonflies, Little Miss Muffet Stamps... Markers: Letraset... Sentiment: Artemio Clear Stamp

Easter Eggs!

Do you know what I really miss about the UK at Eastertime... Cadbury's chocolate eggs! When I was little my brother used to open my chocolate eggs and steal the sweets out of the inside, then wrap the egg back up as if brand new ;) It was probably the end of the world back then, but now, I would be more than happy just eating the chocolate egg shell! Which brings me onto the new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Challenges... HAPPY EASTER!
I've used the gorgeous Celeste Amberglow Egg Hunt from Little Miss Muffet Stamps ... she's from the new Spring Release and is just such a sweetie! For the card shape I drew a template and then cut out the shape. Just looking at this card makes me hungry! The other DT girls have made some lovely creations, so do pop by and take a peek! If you join in the challenge, you could even win yourself some digi stamps from Little Miss Muffet Stamps! What are you waiting for?

Perfect Weather for Butterflies... not!

Hello again! Still no sign of Spring here... yesterday we had hail stones as big as marbles (well almost)!
So here's a little reminder of  what Spring/Summer is like with our new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers today... BUTTERFLIES! I've gone for floral too... seeing as the flowers in my garden are struggling to emerge! Don't blame them with this weather! We're sponsored by Digistamp Boutique this week, who are offering 6 digi stamps to the lucky winner! I've used this cute digi called  "In the garden - flowers"... perfect for any occasion! Take a peek at the other DT cards over at the Passion for Promarkers blog, they're lovely :)

Hopefully I'll get around to visiting you all later today... I just haven't had a minute recently! Until then, thanks for all your lovely comments, big hugs xx

On a Wing and a Prayer

Good morning! Time for a cupcake!
This week over at Cupcake Craft Challenge it's my turn to choose the theme, so I've gone with MYTHICAL CREATURES! Flying horses, unicorns, goblins, trolls, fairies, elves etc... we want to see them! Being as I'm a horse lover, I had to go with a flying horse of course :) Isn't he a cutie? He's called Nightwind, and is from our very generous sponsor Little Miss Muffet Stamps! They have loads of rubber and digital stamps just perfect for our challenge this week, and if you happen to be our lucky winner, you get to choose 3 digital stamps from the online store!

For my card, I wanted to keep it fairly CAS so I added the handdrawn clouds and a bit of twine and bling (he's a blingy kinda pony) et voila! If you pop by the Cupcake blog, you'll be enchanted by all the mythical creatures the other DT girls have captured! Now we're looking forward to seeing what magical marvels you create!

All things grow with love... and a bit of sunshine please!

I have a card to share with you. Part 2 of the Spring release is available over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps  I've used one of the gorgeous new releases from Part 1 of the release... this cutie is called Spencer's Garden and you can find him HERE! Just perfect to cheer us up after this miserable weather... I am sick of it now! As soon as I step out the door I get hit by a blizzard or that wet, horrible snow/rain that soaks you right through! Wet and windswept with snowflakes is not a good look! I can't believe that it was 18°c here last Saturday, and now it's below zero!!!

Oh, and don't forget, there's still time to join in our BOYS ONLY challenge at Little Miss Muffet Challenges too!

A Little Spring in my Step

Isn't it amazing how the sunshine, birds singing and the arrival of flowers in the garden puts a little spring in your step?! Today it's especially lovely here (in fact it's even warm)... I had almost forgotten what it was like to have nice weather!

So, to mark the fast approaching new season (Spring is my favourite season), I've made this little card. And it is little too (4"x4"), just perfect to send a little 'hello' to someone. Hope you have a lovely weekend, and the sun is shining for you too!

Only Boys Allowed!

Hip Hip Hooray! I've been asked to stay on as a permanent member of the Little Miss Muffet Design Team!!!
Soooo... we have a new challenge today over at Little Miss Muffet Challenges... BOYS ONLY ... so we'd like to see all your boy themed creations this fortnight!

I've used the adorable Swings & Slides Cheeky Monkey digital stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps, he is just SOOOO cute! I love doing cards for boys, and don't do nearly enough... in fact my hubby keeps saying to me "you always do {stupid} girly cards"... charming! So here's the start of a new series of boy cards... I will try to do more from now on! I drew the little branch and leaves and cut them out... I thought the card was missing something and that seemed to fit nicely!

Over at the challenge blog you can take a little peek at the fab creations the rest of the Little Misses have come up with, and why not join in; you could win some fabulous digi stamps from Little Miss Muffet Stamps!

Love Sparkle?

Good morning to you all! It's Monday and another chance to take part in our Challenge over at Cupcake Craft...
This week my lovely teamie Sari has challenged us all to add SPARKLE to our creations! I have to admit it's not something I use very often, more's the pity! So I really enjoyed making my card... thanks Sari!

I got this lovely image for free from Saturated Canary, she's called Boobie Love... she's just gorgeous! I've had her a while but only just coloured her, how pleased I am that I did! I've added some sparkle to her hair with a gel pen, hope you can see it (if you click on the image you can get a closer look). I've used lots of odds and ends that I've had in my craft stash for ages, like the Papermania pearls and the Anna Griffin paper; I just never knew how I'd use them before. The sentiment was one I sourced from the internet, sorry can't remember where... I've had it forever too!

We are sponsored by Flat Friends who have kindly offered 6 images of your choice to the lucky, random winner. Pop by the Cupcake blog to see more details and be dazzled by all the stunning creations my DT buddies have made! Hope you can join in this week!
