Wow, tons of thoughts and ideas racing through my head right now, not sure if it’s because I’m tired and feeling a second wind or if I am so tired I’m delirious!  LOL  Seriously though, after spending the past few days on Facebook and just catching up on blogs I follow, I just have to say 2 things.  1.  There are so many FABULOUSLY TALENTED crafters out there, I am consistently amazed by your brilliant creations!  2.  I am so thankful to all the DTs that I am a part of – I feel so fortunate to be surrounded by so many wonderful people and I feel privileged to work with some amazing illustrators and designers.

We have a NEW CHALLENGE for you this week at LITTLE MISS MUFFET and our challenge this time is NEOPOLITAN.  So, think of NEOPOLITAN ice cream and we want to see brown, pink and white/off-white (chocolate, strawberry and vanilla) on your creations.  You will have until August 7 to come enter your projects.  Please remember, if you do not use a LITTLE MISS MUFFET STAMPS image, you get 1 entry and must follow our theme of NEOPOLITAN.  However, if you play along with an image from LITTLE MISS MUFFET STAMPS, you get as many entries as you want AND the theme is anything goes!!

Reminder, we now have a FACEBOOK FAN PAGE and we sure hope you will join us – just click the link below to go there.

For today’s challenge, I’ve made a set of birthday cards using Birthday Bunny, Summer Monkey and Monster Balloons – all part of the NEW RUBBER RELEASES from last week.  I love this set of images!!

All LITTLE MISS MUFFET STAMPS images are colored with Copics, the Monkey has Sakura gel pen added to his cheeks and I used Sakura glaze pen on the monster’s horns.  All cards feature Prima DP, sentiment from A. Jillian Designs (#2 added on bunny card is from CTMH), SU, Bazzill and Core-dinations papers.

The Birthday Bunny card features die cuts from Memory Box (image), MFT (scalloped border), Cheery Lynn Designs (scalloped square), Nesties (rectangle) and sentiment cut with Marianne Design die.  Pearls are Prima and ribbon from my stash.

Additional Challenges:
CRAFTS AND ME – anything goes
INKY IMPRESSIONS – dies/punches
MY MUM'S CRAFT SHOP – birthday girls
SISTERHOOD OF CRAFTERS – diamonds, pearls or lace
THE SWEET STOP – sketch plus number
FASHIONISTA CHALLENGE – baby or birthday
FOREVER FRIENDS – anything goes with an animal
INCY WINCY DESIGNS – let’s party

Summer Monkey uses Nesties for image and sentiment and Taylored Expressions die or scalloped piece.  Ribbon is Offray, flowers Prima, buttons MFT.

Additional Challenges:
PAPER PRETTIES – birthday cards
RUBY'S RAINBOW – cute animals
SASSY CHERYL'S – polka dots everywhere
LOVE TO CREATE – spots and dots

For Monster balloons, Nesties used for image, backing and sentiment, bling from Zva Creative, ribbon from Michael’s and sparkly dots from my stash.  Hope you have enjoyed these and come play along at LITTLE MISS MUFFET and please join our fan page on FACEBOOK!!
