Monarch Magic

It's been longer than planned but I hope you didn't forget that my daughter and I were doing the Monarch Butterfly Fund.   She and I had drawn the 5 stages of the butterfly images in Hola Butterfly at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Here she is with the book, Monarch Magic! by Lynn Rosenblatt and her card she made, which we'll be sending in this weekend.  (Not the book, of course.)

The message she wrote inside was "Dear People who save butterflies, I did a fund raser for the monarch butterflys.  I hope the butterflys are safe.  Love, Cassandra."  She's so sweat!  We sold one image plus she contributed $2.00 and I also contributed $2.00 so we'll be sending $6.00 in to Monarch Butterfly Fund.  We're sending the envelope on Monday so if you decide you also want to contribute you can purchase the image this weekend and I'll include it with the rest.

Update: We sent in $13.00 - Thank you Paddi, Nana Donna and Trina!


It's another project day at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and this fortnight it's all about "Simplicity!"  However, remember, that if you use a LMMS then you can always submit an "Anything Goes" project, which is what category my project falls into today.  :D

For my project I created a birthday card using Yvonne from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and some of that neon blue that I just "love!"  I have colored all four of these images with this paper as inspiration and little did I know how bright the colors would photograph.  LOL  Ah, well, it's a bright and cheery card which is just perfect for birthdays!  The sentiment is from Penny Black and is such a fun way to bring a little bit of "geek" into the card. 

A little something I did different with the banners this time is wrapped ribbon around the paper banner to create a layered effect.  Then I cut the bottom of the ribbon to match.  The silk ribbon was a little slippery at first but I like how it turned out... don't you?!  Anyway, thanks for coming by today and be sure to head on over to the Little Miss Muffet Challenge Blog to see all the wonderful projects the DT has created for you today - they're awesome!!

Winter Friends

This is it, my last post in pending state and now soon to be scheduled and posted.  What does that mean?  Well, I'm going to have to start crafting again!!  Well, that sounds like a good excuse - do you think my school teachers will mind?  He he he

This is another card I made using Winter Friends from Some Odd Girl which includes the polar bear, scarf and sentiment stamp.  It's a simple card layout but I think works really well to give the impressing of a cold blistery day.  Plus the polar bear was a cinch to color - just a little bit of gray for shadows (I didn't even bother blending it) and some pink for color.  Hope you like it and hope you have a great week too!  xXx
