Little Miss Muffet Stamps~Swings 'n Slides Snowballs

Little Miss Muffet Stamps 
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you had a great week so far! Today I'm sharing my latest card for LMMS using Swings 'n Slides Snowballs. Last week my card was all bright and summery and this week it's all about the cold, haha! It's kind of like Texas weather!! We go from blistering HOT to freezing cold in a day....there's no real fall here. The leaves on the trees go from green and full of life to green/brown and on the ground! I miss the long fall season where the leaves stay on the trees and turn all the different colors.
 
Don't forget, for the month of October, LMMS is having a huge sale on a bunch of their stamps!! Head over HERE to snatch up these amazing stamps at a great deal!! I ordered a bunch of the Swings 'n Slides series because they are just so darn cute!! 

My little guy loves the snow and loves to make snowballs! Unfortunately we don't get much snow here either. I remember when Isaiah was little, we took him up Mt. Rainier in WA while visiting my mom. We pulled over and let him play in the snow. He made little snowballs and would throw them towards the camera. It was so adorable! It's why I had to buy Swings 'n Slides Snowballs...because he reminded me of my little boy.
 
 Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E01, E02, E11, E13
Hair: E44, E47
Orange: YR02, YR04, YR07, YR09
Blue: B000, B01, B02, B05
Liquid Applique
 
I kept my card pretty simple because I wanted the focus to be on my image. The border punch is a large Martha Stewart snowflake border punch. The white snowflakes below it are felt stickers. The sentiment is from Close To My Heart.
 
 Be sure to come "Like" us on the Little Miss Muffet FB Page to stay up-to-date on all our news. If we get more likes, we'll get some more freebies!

She's a crafter and an organizer so guess who's going to have help organizing her craft room....yeah this girl, WOOT WOOT!! Right now it looks like a tornado went through and hit a hoarders house...there is stuff everywhere. It would literally drive someone with OCD to the looney bin!! I can't find anything in there!

Make it Colourful Challenge #14: Ballpoint Pens or Medium You're Not Familiar With

CHALLENGE #14 – BALL POINT PENS OR MEDIUMS YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH
 
Today starts a new MONTHLY challenge on the Make it Colourful Blog. The theme this time around is:

BALLPOINT PENS or Medium You're Not Familiar With

This challenge was a tough one for me. I really needed more colors than the Papermate set I bought at Walmart had. The set did come with two shades of green and two shades of blue so those were the colors I stuck to in my coloring. My other teamies did a cross-hatch style of coloring, but I struggled with that so I just did strokes in the same direction.

I used this super cute image called Friendly Flower Sprites....aren't they just so adorable?!!
 Some tips for using ballpoint pens would include using light strokes and also cleaning the tip of your pens on a regular basis. If you don't clean the tip then it starts to get gloppy ink build-up and will leave dark sticky marks on your project.

For my card I used various things in my stash. The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. The sentiment is from Tim Holtz.

Remember to use a Make it Crafty image and upload your projects to the Make it Crafty Gallery.
We’d love to see you share your work of art with us. 

You’re also more than welcome to share your progress, possible disasters and when you triumph with us in the Facebook group HERE.

Have a great week!
Rosie :)
