Spencer's Party - Little Miss Muffet DT

Hello everyone... hope you're all well, hugs to all who need them.

I'm here with my DT card for Little Miss Muffet, using a new and very cute image called Spencer's Party.  I've used my Cameo to cut the base and layers - Donna used this fab shape recently and I had to have it... I'm not particularly good at using shaped bases, but I do like them so I'll persevere!

Items Used
Card Base - made using Frame Set Bubble Squares (ID #50859)
cut on the Cameo
Digi stamp - Spencer's Party - Little Miss Muffet Stamps
Colouring - copics
Papers - Doodlebug Snips & Snails - Craft Mojo
Sentiment - Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler - Craft Mojo
Wink of Stella Brush Marker in Clear (on balloons & present) - Craft Mojo

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
A Little Bit Crafty - man up
Cutie Pie - cute with spots & dots
Papertake Weekly - lovely layers
A Gem of a Challenge - spots & stripes

Sooo... in past years I've generally not posted a card on this date - it's exactly 7yrs since our beautiful baby Harvey was born sleeping.  It has traditionally been my day for wallowing and crying as much as I blimmin' well like.  But this year Pav said he was taking the day off, and we've spent the day together, just doing normal boring stuff like going to the gym... and I haven't cried (yet!).  So I think this may be the way to go next year too.

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. When my father died 8 years ago, everyone kept telling me how long it would take to get over the loss... I didn't like hearing it at the time, it made me angry. Then a few years went by and instead of crying when I spoke about him I started to smile remembering him. Laughing at the things he use to do to make us happy. Now I know... It never goes away, it just gets easier with time. Enjoy your day. May the sun shine down on you from your little angel in heaven.

Lovely card, I would think it would be for Harvey, he would have loved it.

My heart is with you, but it will get easier. hugs

Kat W said...

It will always be a sad day for you but I hope your 'normal' day worked for you and helped you get through it with Pav at your side.
Your card is lovely and I do think shaped cards add so much interest but your beautifully coloured dog is the start of the show here!
Big big hugs, Kat xx
