This is release week for Little Miss Muffet Stamps and I wanted to feature my favorite from today! This is Ava and is one I drew while at the park with my daughters... and she, like my youngest daughter, enjoys the toddler swing very much!

I'm starting to discover a fetish I have for clouds and even yesterday at the scrapbook store I bought a whole paper pad just for the cloud paper in it! Yes, it's true! So naturally I went home and used some cloud paper and created this fun card. Oh, and paper with words on it too if you haven't noticed lately. LOL

I kept this card simple and used a plain silk ribbon, gems and Make it Crafty chippies to finish it up. It all came together rather quickly which is nice to have happen once in a while. ;D So I hope you enjoyed this tidbit of inspiration and you can head on over to the Little Miss Muffet Challenge blog to catch some more New Release projects!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

  16. I love her, she is so sweet. My kiddies have just gone up to the regular swing, sniff, but I fondly remember the dayz - ha, it was just last year.

    I like the simpler look too, sometimes not much is needed to shine. Great job as always.

    Sorry I couldn't get my act together this week to par-take, but I will for sure next week. I did post up Agent Cupcake today, however.
