We've got some new releases at Little Miss Muffet Stamps to show off and the theme is sort of centered around Critters and Combos - however, I couldn't resit adding a few extras and a little Wee One too!  :D  Check out the LMM Challenge Blog for the DT projects and then head on over to the LMMS Store for some shopping!  I released everything today instead of dividing it up - so check it out.  :D

The card I made today was inspired for a dear friends.  I needed to make a simpathy card but nothing I had really expressed my feelings and all felt superficial at the time.  Creating a simpathy card in the moment is one of the hardest projects I've had for a while and it ended up taking me a week to complete  working on it here and there ad not knowing if it would ever be enough.  Anyway, I finally settled on knowing it was for a good friend and she'd probably appreciate anything I could send.  :D

Two of the imgages I used are from the New Releases this week which I combined for the dog - Kiara and Angel Accessories, both from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Then in the background I merged it with Timber Top Ridge from Make it Crafty.  I drew the dog lookint at Staffordshire Bull Terriers but I think he can be used for any bulldog types.

I think adding the embellishments on this card took just as long as drawing and coloring the imgages.  LOL  I'd add something and it just wouldn't look right so I'd add something else and let it sit for a day.  This took several days, as I had mentioned, however, this is the ed result.  It may notbe the most perfect card I had made but I rather like how it turned out - so I was finally able to send it off.  :D

Sunny Mae

We have another new release to show off today from Some Odd Girl and this one is called Sunny Mae!  She come with some great accessory stamps including the clouds and "fun in the sun" sentiment I used.  :D  Be sure to visit the SOG Blog for other inspiration and here's my card...

I used some gardening paper I found at the local scrapbook store and paired it up with craft, green and brown papers from my stash.  Then rummaged around looking for other things to match and this is what I came up with.  I haven't used craft and black papers together before and I rather like how it turned out.  :D  Thanks for coming by and have a great day!

Under the Sea Mae

We have some new clear stamp releases this week at Some Odd Girl and I couldn't resist joining in and bringing you Under the Sea Mae!!  This set is so fun to use and includes two mermaids, two friends and a great accessory stamps too.  :D  Here's the card that I made... using a Mermaid Mae, Seahorse, Seashells and the Fintastic Friends sentiment...

I had to dig around in my paper stash to find some water paper and was excited to find the background decorative paper.  Then by shear luck I found the sun shining yellow which was a perfect offset.  :D  But for some reason I was in with the school paper and snatched a few just for fun.  Then the sun rays were done with B00 for more of a water effect.

After getting everything on the card, as a final touch I wrapped it up with Baker's Twine then added some Dew Drops for bubbles.  That's about it for this card but don't forget to head on over to the SOG Blog to see all the other fantastic... I mean, fintastic projects!!  LOL  Have a great Monday!
