Little Miss Muffet Challenge #56

Good morning! Happy Thursday! Hope you've had a good week so far!  Being Thursday means it's Little Miss Muffet DT day!  This week we have a new challenge starting on the Little Miss Muffet Challenge blog.  The theme is "for boys only".   It's a perfect opportunity to create those cards for "the boys" that sometimes elude us.

Here is my card:


My card base and mats are SU Lucky Limeade and the patterned papers are from the Authentique Loyal 6x6 pad.  My adorable image is Bandit Boy Tom from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  He can be found in the Operation: TREEHOUSE range.  He's only available now as a rubber stamp, but I got him when he was still available as a digi. I printed him on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored him with my Copics.  I cut him out with my Cameo and popped him up on foam tape.  I added a bit of grass and a sponged sky in the background.  The fun sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A couple of buttons tied with Baker's Twine finished my card.

Here is a close-up:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure you pop over to the Little Miss Muffet Challenge blog and check out the fun creations from the rest of the DT, our talented Guest Designer for March, Margreet, and special guest designers, Petra and Michelle.  We hope you will play along!  You have until Tuesday, March 19 to enter your project.  Using a Little Miss Muffet stamp is not required, but if you do use either a LMM stamp or any Pollycraft image, you can enter with "anything goes" as the theme and you can enter more than one creation.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday #248 (sketch)
Through The Craftroom Door (anything goes)
Papertake Weekly (anything goes)
Color Me Creative Classroom Challenge #63 (anything goes; bugs, butterflies or reptiles optional)
Eclectic Ellapu (card for a child)
Simon Says Stamp Challenge (a bit o' green)
Card Makin' Mamas (green)

Here is SS-248:

Have a wonderful day and see you soon!

  4. Carla he is adorable. What a popular image this week and you are all inspiring me. The pp is so masculine - perfect. Plus, that fussy cutting just takes it over the top, especially the little frog dangling over the sentiment.
