Sunbonnet Strawberry Jam

We're starting off the new year with a sketch challenge at Little Miss Muffet Challenges and this one is a fun one that we hope you'll adore!  Challenge #76 goes for just about two weeks and we can't wait to see what you create!  I thought it would be fun to start the year with a few of my favorite colors too... pink and chocolate brown.  :D

For my project I used Sunbonnet Strawberry Jam from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and colored it using the Marvy LePlume markers.  This is the image I colored along side with my daughter when she wanted to learn how to color with the "grown-up markers".  :D  She did a wonderful job and I think I've posted it on this site before!

The project was assembled using the sketch as a guide then I added the cream canvas like ribbon and twine.  I wanted to use the micro-beads so this give me the opportunity to tie a little bottle on.  It's only now that I realize it could be little jar of strawberry jam!

Be sure to pop on over to the LMM Challenge blog and check out all the other Little Misses' projects - they're fabulous!  Each of them did a fantastic job with this sketch and I love the diversity!


  1. So pretty - I love those colours!

  2. Yummo! Of course I adore sketches and your take looks great with all the embellies - so cute!

  3. Happy New Year Barbara :)
    I do love what you do with your cards, you always colour so perfectly, and you have the best embellies that take your eyes to every corner, lovely.
    Here's to a great 2014!
    Thanks for having me on your team.

  4. Love your layers ... I am so tickled to be joining the team this month ;)

  5. The first thing I thought when I saw the bottle was strawberry jam, adorable. Love this sketch also.

  6. Gorgeous card, Barbara! Love the papers and details you used along with the wonderfully-colored image!

  7. I love the little jar of jam! Intentional or not, it's a cute detail. And do I spy a touch of glimmer on her dress and bonnet?! Swooon! My, (erm, how do you spell) Padwan(?) Learner is coming over to the light, glittery, side! Woohoo! xx

    1. Ha, ha! I've only been converted because the glitter was infused in the paper. LOL

  8. This is beautiful. Love the little jar of jam (lol, too funny that it turned out to be a perfect jar of jam)! Gorgeous coloring and such a pretty touch with the canvas piece.
