Little Miss Muffet Stamps~Fancy Sunbonnet Thanksgiving!

Little Miss Muffet Stamps 
TGIF everyone! I hope you had a great week so far! I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week!! How in the world did that happen?! I thought I still had a couple more weeks...geez louise!! I've got so much to do in such little bit of time.

Yesterday started a new challenge on the Little Miss Muffet Challenge Blog. The theme for the next two weeks is CLEAN and SIMPLE (CAS). I struggle with CAS cards, but I kind of like how this one turned out. :)

Since Thanksgiving is almost here I decided to use FANCY SUNBONNET THANKSGIVING. I stamped her directly to the kraft cardstock and used colored pencils for my coloring. I definitely need a lot more practice. It looks like I took some crayons and just colored her in. I applaud those of you who use pencils and get all the shading in....man my attempt needs a lot of work!! I also realize I might need some more pencils so I can practice more. :)


The "thanks" word die is from Paper Smooches. I hand wrote the word "give". The ribbon was from my stash. I always get asked how do I make my bows. I use a thin, plastic tool called a BOW EASY. It's super easy to use and makes my bows perfect. :)

Now be sure to link up your CAS creation on the Little Miss Muffet Challenge Blog. And check out the LMMS STORE to get some amazing stamps! Also, come join in all the fun on our 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!

Have a great weekend!

Little Miss Muffet Stamps~Dexter Gives

Little Miss Muffet Stamps 
TGIF everyone! I hope you had a great week so far! It's been a rough week which I'm attributing to the cold weather that decided to mosey on in and chill everyone to the bone. Isaiah was having melt-downs and the hubby came down with an upper respiratory infection! GEEZ LOUISE!! I'm so glad it's Friday and the weekend is here so we can just relax and get healthy. This momma needs to make up some sleep and hopefully get rid of the under eye circles!
 
I finally had some time today to make a card with this adorable and sweet penguin called DEXTER GIVES. He's definitely a cutie!! I printed him on X-Press It Blending Card and colored him with Copics.

Little Miss Muffet Stamps~Bunny with Stocking

Little Miss Muffet Stamps 
Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you had a great week so far! This was a hectic one for me so I'm so looking forward to relaxing this weekend. I made 22 gift baggies for Isaiah's Fall Party on Friday and that nearly wiped me out. He wanted a Minecraft theme and you just can't buy any of that stuff at the party stores. So I had to print and cut and make the stuff by hand. It was a lot of work I tell ya!
As I recover today from trick-or-treating and the sugar overload, I finally had some time today to make a card with this newly released image called Bunny with Stocking. I'm telling you....total cuteness overload!! I love him bunches and just want to squish him with hugs, haha! He's so stinkin' adorable!!
 Copics:
Bunny: E42, E43, E44, E51, E52, E53, R20, R22,
Hat: R22, R24, R27, R59, G21, G24, G28
Liquid Applique

I used an awesome die designed by my friend Rhea called By DIEzyne Stitched Circles and Half Circles. These dies are fabulous and are my new fave!! They are available HERE. The dps are from Authentique BELIEVE 6x6 paper pad. The ribbon was in my stash. The top banner die is from Joy Crafts.

Don't forget LMMS is having a HUGE SALE!! Be sure to head over to the LMMS STORE and snatch up lots of stamps at amazing prices!! Also come join in all the fun on our 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!

Make it Colourful Challenge #15: Color your image in 15 minutes or less!

Today starts a new MONTHLY challenge on the Make it Colourful Blog. The theme this time around is:

15 MINUTE Challenge

This challenge was a tough one for me. I think I suffer from test anxiety. I was sweating and my hand was shaking, LOL! I did find that it went a lot faster coloring the larger areas with the broad tip of my Copic markers. It also helps to have all your makers lined up, with the caps off, ready to go. Another tip....stick to 3 or less markers per shade. I used the timer on my phone and was able to color Rudolf Reindeer in 14 minutes and 35 seconds. It's definitely not my best coloring (I'm SLOW at coloring), but I gave it my best shot.

Copics:
E42, E43, E44, E47, R20, G21, G24, G28, C3, C5, R22, R27, R59

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!
