Skelekinz No Sunshine

This is Skelekinz No Sunshine rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Even though she is colored with vibrant colors, I wanted to make a gloomy card so I selected drab colors for the card base.  If you look, my daughter helped me color it too ... that's the extra white gel pen on the umbrella.  LOL

I'd like to share this card in the following challenges ...

Polka Dot Pals Trillian

I've still got my towel and colored another image.  Whereas I feel like the last one was more of a warm-up, I really liked how this one turned out.  The background is actually part of the color to a colander I had last year.  I liked the starry night feel and just couldn't manage to toss it.  Now I'm glad I didn't. 

This is Polka Dot Pals Trillian from the Towel Day release and colored it with Polychromos pencils.  I like how her face turned out and using the pencils was a lot easier than using the markers.  That allowed me to build up the area and take it slow.  I also used the Thanks for All the Fist Sentiment and printed that out on Kraft paper. 

I'd like to share this project into these challenges . . . 

Polka Dot Pals Douglas

Douglas Adams is one of my all time favorite authors so when I heard about Towel Day, I knew I wanted to do something.  Out of all the ideas that came to mind, I settled on drawing up two characters totting their towels around . . . Douglas and Trillian.  So today, in celebration of Towel Day, I've created this card using two of the new images.

The images I used on this project are ...

Read the Wikipedia article about Towel Day and check this Towel Day website for other events and fun stuff to do to day.  Little Miss Muffet Stamps is listed on there too.  :)

I have my towel . . . do you know where your's is?

Broasca's Birthday

Today we're introducing some new stamps at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I had the pleasure of coloring up the Broasca's Birthday rubber stamp.  I think one day I'll combine her with Borasca the Flog and create a lovely scene with them together. 

In addition to new stamps, I will now be offering Raley's Confectioneries handmade rock candies.  These are so yummy!  You can choose from Anise, Root Beer, Nectar and a Citrus Mix.

Those added were my top most favorite colors and also so happened to be my family's favorites too.  Grab a bag with your next stamp order for a sweet combination.

Polka Dot Pals Sally

This is Polka Dot Pals Sally from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and was colored with some Polychromos pencils.  It was actually one that I colored while camping and we were looking for something to do.  I don't remember what everyone else colored but we all had a great time!  :)

There is a new challenge opening up on the LMM Challenge blog and it's an Anything Goes theme - perfect for any kind of card.  Drop by and share a project.

This project is a little card for my Mom.  The idea was from a tea party invitation I received from my own daughter and I thought it was adorable.  So I reused the doily and twine then inserted a new card in and added some decorations.  Plus the image too, of course.  So . . . from granddaughter to mum to grandmother.  Happy Mother's day!

Clover Toadstool Dreams

Three projects in a row - could it be?  Well, if you haven't already picked yourself up from falling off your chair, then you can do so now.  I promise not to have any more surprises in this post.  LOL.  

This is the Clover Toadstool Dreams Card Kit from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and includes the rubber stamp.  These were actually the original colors that were used for the label of the stamp too.  I paired it with a little bit of red and yellow for a good visual punch.
