Guest Designer - Love To Create Challenge

Good morning!  Happy Monday!  Hope you had a nice weekend and your week is off to a great start!  We were supposed to get lots of rain, but we didn't get a single drop!  Maybe later today we will get a little.  Anyway, I have a project today and some exciting news!  I was invited to be a Guest Designer for the Love to Create Challenge starting today!  The theme is "love of ribbons".  They want to see ribbons on your project. The sponsor is Sami Stamps and I was generously provided with a digi for my project.

Here is my card:
 

My easel card base and mats are SU Real Red and the patterned papers are from Gina K. Designs.  I think they were called Berries and Vines, but I wouldn't swear to it.  The sweet image is "A Basket Full" from Sami Stamps.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics. The sentiment is computer-generated.  I added a few Wild Orchid Crafts Daisies, some gingham ribbons and a fun wooden strawberry sticker to finish my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:
 

And here is the sentiment:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Love To Create challenge blog and check out the wonderful designs from the DT!  I am sure they would love it if you would play along!

I am entering my card in the following challenge:
613 Avenue Create #91 (anything goes/option- use a heart)
Incy Wincy Challenge (something old, something new: I used old papers and ribbon and new image and strawberry embellishment)

Have a great day and see you soon!

Little Miss Muffet Challenge #95 - Make it Mini

Good morning!  Happy Thursday!  Hope your week is going well so far!  It's going to be busier than usual on my blog today, so here we go.  I am here with my DT card for the new Little Miss Muffet challenge which is starting today.  The theme this time is "make it mini".  We want to see something small.  No regular-sized cards this time.  It can be an ATC or small altered item or anything else besides a full-sized card.  We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Here is my ATC:


The base for my ATC is SU Pool Party.  The adorable image is Primrose Flower Fairy by Pollycraft for Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I colored her in with my Copics and added some grass for her to kneel in.  Her wings are covered in Eucalyptus Stickles for some sparkle.  The flower centers have Yellow Stickles.  The only embellishment is a wooden butterfly.  Simple and sweet!

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Little Miss Muffet blog and check out the darling mini projects from the Little Misses and our wonderful Guest Designer, Lou!  We hope you will play along!  You have until October 7th to enter.

I am entering my creation in the following challenges:
Through The Craftroom Door Challenge (anything goes)
Incy Wincy Challenge (anything goes)
Crafting From the Heart Challenge #37 (anything goes)

Have a wonderful day and I'll be back later with my DT card for this month's Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge.
