Guest DT at Little Miss Muffet

Morning everyone :o)

I haven't posted for a few days, due to still being ill - I keep saying I'll go to the doctors, but I'm fairly sure it's just a nasty virus.  I've still been making stuff, but I've not done much colouring and haven't really felt like blogging either... seem to have lost my mojo a little...

Anyway, a while ago I won a challenge at Little Miss Muffet, and as part of my prize I was offered a Guest DT post for this week.  The challenge is 'hearts & flowers' and I've used an image that I actually bought as a Pollycraft digi ages ago, but is now available as a rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet.

I've only just noticed that I forgot to colour the little flowers in the grass... must sort that out lol!

Items Used
Image & Sentiment - Ice Cream Bench & Sweet Sentiments - Little Miss Muffet
Colouring - copics
Papers - Dovecraft Sugar & Spice
Nestabilities Grand Labels 1
Whiff of Joy Heart Banner die - MCH
Memory Box Cherry Blossom die - MCH
NEW Memory Box Forget-Me-Not Stem die - MCH
Rose, seam binding & pearls from my stash

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Charisma Cardz - hearts & flowers
CRAFT - Valentine's or love
Crafty Ribbons - love/ romance/ anniversary
Inky Chicks - bingo (die cuts, image, flowers)

Off to the craft room, see if I can make something worth putting on my blog lol... Hope you all have a lovely day :o)

Hi Lisa, so sorry to hear you're still feeling naff. There are so many things I love about this card. The bright colours. Fab colouring. The clouds and grass. Scrummy papers. Love, love, love. It's lovely to have you at LMM this week, thank you. Hope you're in the craft room, but if I hear you say things like make something worth blogging again, I'm gonna come over there and slap you! xx

Hi Lisa. Love the card as I always do when you blog.... Sorry to hear your feeling under the weather. Sure your mojo will pick up when you do....does not look like its lost to me your card is lovely! Could you help me with one question too please.... How do you get your nesting dies to have a small gap between? When I use mine, usually x cut range, they seem to have a huge border between each size ...hope u get what I mean and can help me. Thank you and get well soon xxx

Oh Lisa I am so sorry to hear that you are still feeling so ill, it would be best to get to the doctor's for some meds to help clear it up. I wish I could make cards as beautiful as this when my mojo was missing it is gorgeous the colouring of that image is perfection so is the card design, hope that you feel better soon.

Kat said...

Gorgeous card Lisa, what a pair of little cuties. Love that image.

Sorry to hear you're still feeling miserable. There seems to be a lot of illness about. My hubby had to visit the doc last week with a really sore ear. He said he'd never felt pain like it. I've heard about a lot of people with ear infections, adults and children. A colleagues daughter has an ear infection and a chest infection, lucky girl. Hope you don't pick up anything else now, you seem to have had a long time of being unwell!

Take care,

Kat xx

Crafteezee said...

Oh soooo cute and love the sentiment. Perfect. Loved your little story with the holes in your swimsuit, really made me laugh. I left my gloves on top of handbag on the stairs when I got n yesterday. Later that evening Ollie followed me upstairs to my craft room as usual, then after a while he disappeared, odd as he doesn't leave my side. When I peaked from the top of the stairs I could see him. He hit the bottom stair and turned to face me. Glove in his mouth, lol. He must of smelt the leather on his way up and thought I'll bide my time and when she starts crafting I'll make my move. Little rascal.

Anneke said...
