Sweet New Image From Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Hello friends!  Little Miss Muffet Stamps has released a few new images this week.  You can find them here.  I really liked this sweet little Lamb and Star image.  My first grandson took a liking to sheep, so he had many stuffed sheep.  He had one in particular that he loved to sleep with.  He called it his "baa".  He is 3 and 1/2 yrs old and loves all stuffed animals.  Now he sleeps with so many it reminds me of ET when he was hiding in the stuffed animals.  Anyway, on to my card.


I used my polychromos to color this.  It looks much nicer in person.  I wasn't able to capture the colors with my camera.  I hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by! 

Hugs and smiles,
Janice

LMMS Stamps Anything Goes Challenge #177

Hello friends!  Today starts a new challenge at LMMS, Anything Goes #177.  I chose to use Fancy Sunbonnet Christmas Stuff.  I used my Faber Castell Polychromos on Kraft to color this sweet image.

I hope to get my Christmas tree up this weekend.  I may even put up my Christmas village.  I haven't done that in over 10 years.  If I get it done I will be sure to take some pictures.  I love Christmas!!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,

Happy Thanksgiving

Hello friends and family!  I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope you can tune out all the negative thoughts, at least for today, and really enjoy being with your loved ones.  I am so thankful to have such wonderful friends and family!  You are all such blessings to me!  A couple of days ago while filling my car with gas, I was humming a Christmas song.  The gentleman pumping gas on the other side said, "Oh it is so nice to hear you humming!"  I didn't know I was humming loud enough for anyone to hear.  It brought him a little happiness and his gratitude for my humming made my day.  I would like to share a card I made with one of the new images from LMMS!  My 3 yr old grand son's eyes grew wide and he said, "I want a pet penguin!  My daddy is allergic to bunnies, but maybe he is not allergic to penguins." How cute is that? 
 I had fun coloring this cutie with pink and black, a favorite color combo from a few years ago.  This is Jr. Hatter Simone.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Be safe on your shopping adventures this weekend!

Hugs and smiles,
Janice

LMMS Anything Goes Challenge #176

Hello everyone! Time for a new challenge #176-Anything Goes.  When I saw this new image I just had to color her up!  I think it is so darn cute!  We own a few chickens, so I love chicken images, though I found out they are turkeys.  I had so much fun coloring her up.  I edited part of her hat and printed it in a row of 3 just to make the card FUN. Hope you like her!


This is Jr Hatter Penelope and she has been colored with copics and colored pencils.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great weekend!

Hugs and smiles,

MCT 72nd Edition Release Blog Hop & Sale!

Good morning friends! It is time for the 72nd Edition Release Blog Hop and Sale. I hope you have been enjoying our sneak peeks. Today I have several cards to share with you using the adorable A Sloth Holiday stamp and die set. I had such fun creating with this release and I thank Emma for having me as a guest designer for October. Now here are my cards. '

For this card I used Stitched Cartoon Cloud Dies for the clouds. I used the balloons and birthday stamp from the Birthday Buddies Stamp Set to make it a birthday card.


I stamped the sloth twice and used the Hang with me sentiment to make this a fun friendship card. I also used 3 Star stitched Die for the starry background.


I had fun with this holiday card. When I found this paper in my stash I thought it was the perfect choice for what I had in mind. I usually color my images and then look for my paper choices. I think most people choose products first and then color. I used the Santa Suit Dies for the hats. For the scarf I used Prehistoric Holidays Stamp Set, and More Stitched Circle Dies for the snowman.


And finally a Halloween card. I used the Stitched Spooky Ghosts Dies, the witch hat from the Classy Girls Accessories set, and the spider from the Too Cute to Spook set. I used halloween colors on the sloths and added the witches hat to spook them up a bit. I hope you have been inspired with a variety of ways to use A Sloth Holiday set as well as all the sets we showcased this week.

"FREEBIE DIE"
Starting THIS Friday, October 20, 2017 @ 8am PST ~ Our "Freebie" for this release is the "Gingerbread Dies” set. It will be given to the FIRST 75 shoppers!

LMMS Challenge#174- Anything Goes

Hello friends!  Time for a new challenge at LMMS.  I have used Pdp Vivian.  She has been colored with copics and colored pencils.  That is my preferred medium of choice (at least for now).


I love the Polka Dot Pals because I love to practice doing their faces.  I have to say I am pretty happy with the way she turned out.  Sometimes I make their eyelashes too crazy, or a crooked mouth, but this time, it works for me.  I hope you like her.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,
Janice

MCT 72nd Edition Sneak Peek #2


Good morning friends! Welcome to day 2 of sneak peeks. We are showcasing Gingerbread Friends and Gingerbread Banners. I also used a few of MCT older dies. I used the stitched Apron Die because I think it works perfectly with those cute gingers.

I colored the gingers with copics and stamped the sentiments on the Gingerbread Banner Dies.

Cozy by the Fireplace

Hello friends!  Well we have finally had a small bit of cool weather.  I can't believe it is almost the middle of Oct. and we were having temperatures in the 70's.  I almost had to turn the heat on this morning.  For my card today I used this wonderful Fireplace Background stamp by Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Nothing better than sitting by a cozy fireplace to take the chill out of the air.


I used copics and color pencils to color this image.  It makes me excited for Christmas.  It will be here before you know it.  This whole year has been going by so quickly.  I hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs and smiles,

Fun with Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Hello friends!  I have a couple of cards to share with you today.  For my first card I used Pdp-Kacee.  I didn't know what to do with this image at first.  With Halloween on my mind, that is the direction I went with.  At first I thought I would try to make her face into a skull to match her skeleton, but that didn't turn out.  So I decided to go with spider webs and a spider nose.  I kept it black and white with pops of red.


I thought the fish net stockings went well with the spider webs.  I would love to see how other people would use her and I would love if Barbara would use my card and color her to make her pop off the page.  I have the hardest time making things look 3 dimensional.  Barbara if you have time I would love the teaching lesson. ;)  Will you accept the challenge?

Here is my second card using the adorable Candy Monster.


Who doesn't love candy corn?  He was so fun to color!  I hope you feel inspired to make some Halloween cards.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,
Janice

Good Bye Wisconsin Hope to see you next year!

I am sitting here at the airport in Green Bay waiting to board my flt back home to Massachusetts.  I had such a wonderful time with family and friends.  With limited crafting supplies I made this card.


This is a digital stamp.  I tried to use colored pencils but wasn't getting the result I desired.  So I colored the image with a standard pencil and added a little pink.  I was pleased with the image so I cut it out, added texture and doodles, and layers to complete the card.  This is polka Dot Pals Tracey and you can find her here.  Going to board the plane soon.  Hope you like it.

Hugs and smiles,

LMMS Anything Goes Challenge 169

Hello friends!  We have a new Anything Goes Challenge 169 at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I used this wonderful Front door card kit.  Barbara's card kits are fantastic, packed with lots of goodies!  I changed my design a little to show that you can do it another way.


I scored the blue cardstock to make it look like the siding on a house.  I stamped a blue door and colored the door frame to look like wood.  I like Barbara's sample better, but think this one is okay too!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,
