Little Miss Muffet - Inspiration Post

Good morning!  Happy Thursday and Happy Thanksgiving to my friends in the U.S. who are celebrating today.  I hope you have wonderful plans with your family and friends.  It is definitely a time to be thankful for so many blessings in our lives.  It will be sad for us, being that it's the first Thanksgiving without my Mom.  However, today I am thankful for having had the chance to reconnect with several of my cousins at her funeral this summer and I am happy to be keeping in touch with them now after many years of not seeing one another.

Anyway, I am here as always on Thursday with my Little Miss Muffet DT post.  Today we are doing an "inspiration post" on the blog.  We all got to pick some of our favorite Little Miss Muffet stamps to showcase and otherwise, it was anything goes.

Here is what I came up with:


My card base and mats are SU Real Red and the patterned paper is from the Recollections Festivus 6x6 pad.  I created a fun Winter scene by merging several images: Jolly Santa by Pollycraft for Little Miss Muffet Stamps and the Winter Sign, Winter Fence and Snow Village digis from the Winter Objects Collection by Make it Crafty.   I printed the merged image onto MiC Blending Card and colored the whole thing with my Copics.  I added some stars to the night sky with my Sharpie White Paint Pen and sparkle to the trim on Santa's suit with glitter.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A couple of Memroy Box Snowflake Corners finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the scene:


and a close-up of Santa:
