I keep forgetting that Make it Colourful challenges have moved to Friday now....naughty me forgot to schedule a post!  But I'm not too naughty, I made a card so I guess that's gotta count, somehow! LOL!

We want you to colour WHITE this fortnight . The DT has their designs up in the gallery for some inspiration and   we're all dying to see what you come up with!

I started this card ages ago but never quite finished it till this week. Anyway I've used Snow Elf from MIC cos I like these naughty boys!

Right, now I'm off to slave away at a dog obedience show for the rest of the weekend....and before you ask, the boys aren't entered, they're not obedient! HA HA HA!

Thank You!

This week at Little Miss Muffet, the challenge is to make card to give thanks or show gratitude. 
I picked the lovely Butterfly kisses from LMM and used a chair from MIC to seat her.

This has to be a record for me, a card made in less than an hour!  I suddenly realised the other night that I hadn't done this card yet and wouldn't have a chance to, the rest of the week so I flew into my craft room, grabbed the paper nearest me and chopped! LOL!
I'm actually quite happy that it turned out alright!!!!!! and I really like these colours. The paper is MME A beautiful life.

Say Hi to Audrey!

Another new release at Little Miss Muffet Stamps for you today. Isn't she sweet? Actually this is me checking to see where the sun went to....its raining....again!!!!!Grrrrrrrr!

The paper is K & Co Julianne, the copper sheet I embossed in a cuttlebug folder.
The Dt have another lot of gorgeous projects to show you over at the challenge blog.

Its the annual A & P Show parade through town tonight and the dog training club is part of the parade as always. The poodles have been brushing up on their tricks to show off , Brodie gets to stay at home....I don't think anyone would be impressed by a huge lump of golden hair bouncing around like an idiot shouting I'm here! I'm here! Look at Me!!!!!

New Release time!

Unfortunately this gorgeous wee fish would not be safe in our house. If the cat didn't get him ( he cleaned out the neighbours outdoor goldfish pond!!!!!!) , Brodie would!  It moves, its mine , he says!

This is Gilgo from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I've been dying to use this paper from MME for ages , I love these colours.   The leaf flourish is a Marianne Die and I've cut it out of Ten second studio metal sheets for something different. I've edged around the whole card with Viva pearl pen in bronze.
Now check out what the rest of the team at Little Miss Muffet  have been up to and don't forget the challenge from last week is still running. 


B. I.N.G.O and bingo was his name-oh!   That's been going round in my head for days and its driving me nuts LOL!   
This fortnight at Southern Girls we have embellishment bingo for you to play! Yahooo!!!!!

The Australia and NZ Sponsor for this challenge is.........Southern Girls!!!! And the International sponsor is The Paper Shelter with their gorgeous digi images and papers. international sponsor is The Paper A


I had this cute image from the Paper Shelter which I knew I was going to use, so I merrily played and coloured and put together my card, then realised I forgot the Bingo part, after all that singing!!!!!!!! Duh! 
 Luckily I had 3 patterned papers already, so I found a blingy star thing to throw on and some punched snow flakes and all was saved......

And who would believe its another doggy christmas card? !!!!!!

Playing catch up

I'm late, I'm late! I had trouble getting started on this card but finally finished it last night.
This fortnight at Make it Colourful we want you to use a candle or lantern as your light source.  That means lots of shadows ! I totally mucked up the hat first time around so I printed it out again and cut the hat out and stuck it over the first! LOL! Why waste all the rest of the colouring? I can still see bits that annoy me but too bad, just don't look too closely please..... :(
The paper is Basic grey wassail again, I have lots!  The snowflake chippies are from make it Crafty , and they are covered with Viva Decor Inka Gold.
Now check out the DT examples in the Gallery,   the awesome team have been working hard!

Hmmmmmm....very hard for me I can tell you!  This fortnight at Little Miss Muffet we have a new challenge for you- Simplicity.   I really had trouble with this concept, so decided to go with this gift box for christmas and tried not to overload it with STUFF!!!!!   I recycled this plastic box I had hanging around in the wilderness that is my craft room ...though I have to tell you I have SOOOOOOO much more room in there now that we got rid of the bed. Now I just need to get rid of the tent leaning in the corner that we can't find a home for!!!!!!!!

I coloured up the gorgeous little doggie called Mitten from Little Miss Muffet 

The paper band is basic grey wassail, the poinsettias from Wild Orchid Craft, the white star is a Marianne Die. The gorgeous leaves and silver star ribbon stuff  are from Denise   THANK YOU DENISE!!!!!

Anyway I stuffed this with Christmas marshmallows temporarily..... oooops, they're gone now....I needed a sugar fix..

Please excuse the second photo, its a bit blurry, I was in a hurry!
Now head on over to the challenge blog to see all the goodies and why not join us in our challenge!

And for our encore

We have Anna Kristine hatter all dressed up! 

This is one of the second release for this week at Little Miss Muffet.  Barbara has a range of hatters and they all look pretty smart.   I had to use this yummy Kaisercraft Velvet Ensemble paper for this card, I thought it looked like she was off to the theatre for the night..though she might get yelled at to take that hat off cos she's blocking the view! LOL!
