Happy LMMS Release Day?!

Ready for another quick post? If not, I apologize! Unexpected family, cleaning and cooking all day, plus sinus nonsense since Friday means I need to be speedy...

Little Miss Muffet Stamps has another super release today! Lots of Pollycraft Christmas images, a little turkey and Christmas tree, another Van Sister, a very regal looking crown, plus something for Hanukkah and Kwanzaa! My card uses Emily, the newest (and my fav for the curls) Van Sister...

Finally used some more of that Webster's Pages box! Sentiment from Stamp Camp. It's sparkly IRL...

Check what the rest of the team has for you and see whether YOU won for having up the LMMS News Badge!  Ooh, I just saw that one of my favorite online shops, Oozak, will be selling LMMS dies and rubber stamps soon!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

A Real Stinker...

So, the new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Challenges is to use textiles (ribbon, twine, fabric) on your project. I got 85% of the way through with my card and decided not to even finish it. It's pretty sucky. I was trying to not color because I have a whole lot going on (mostly prepping for my dad's 60's bday party on Saturday). Huge fail! If I can knock some of the pressing things off of my list, I'm going to go back and try again...

You have two weeks to get your project in for a chance to win some digis. Also, since Barbara is heading out of town, there's a chance for you to get some extras if you'd like to place an order between now and Nov. 26:

1. As Digi orders will be slightly delayed, all digi orders will receive a new, unrevealed, winter-themed digi image.

2. Rubber and Diecut orders will be shipped out on 27th November, and will receive a free sentiment stamp. Choose from Royal Decree or Sugar & Spice Sentiment. Please e-mail Barbara with your choice of free stamp at the time of ordering.

UMM...It seems like forever since I touched my blog. I don't know how it happened! It's been 10 days since I last posted, and I haven't been sick or on vacation or anything! Just busy and tired and blah and working and so on... Sorry.

First, those Thanksgiving/Fall Inkadinkado stamps I was giving away ALL that time ago will be heading out to live with BELLDOUBLEYOU!! If you would please send your address to trina.willis at, I will get them in the mail to you.

Highland Monkeys, where are you?

I completely missed posting the new release at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

Two of the Van Family Sisters...

We have some new Thanksgiving stamps and the adorable Van Family! I'm such a dunce, I didn't realize until yesterday that they're the Van family because they look like those little family icons that are on the backs of a gang of vans and SUVs. OOPS! At least that's what I decided their name is for... (Sidenote: If you've been here a while, you know I have some safety issues because of a job I used to have. If you have one of those families on your vehicle, PLEASE do NOT put your last name, kids' names, pets' names on your car. It makes it a lot easier for someone to trick your kids into some nonsense with a name.)

There was also a pretty simple sketch at The Outlawz. You should check that out too. Cards Etc. Shop is sponsoring the Sketch Challenge this month...

Anyway, it's a new week. Hopefully, I'll do better. No promises, though! I'm working to get ready for my father's 60th birthday party this weekend and cleaning up my crafting mess from the dining room before Thanksgiving...

Yankee Doodle at Guylou's Inimitability

As I was thinking about what to make for the new challenge at Guylou's Inimitability, I couldn't stop myself from singing Yankee Doodle! Why? Well, the challenge is for you to put a FEATHER on your project, and my brain thought of Yankee Doodle sticking a feather on his hat... (If I could map how my brain goes everywhere with a simple thought, you'd be amazed at what you saw.)  But wouldn't you know after all that singing, I couldn't find a single blank-ing feather?! I know I have some. My dear pal Theresa sent me some quite a while back. I found everything but those feathers.

SO... I cheated! I used a bird image! :D I figured I should get a pass for making a non-cute spooky card for the last challenge.

Super cropped Serena and the Little Bird digi from Guylou's Inimitability + BasicGrey's Hopscotch papers

If you'd like to play along for a chance at some free digis, you have until 10 pm EST on November 15 to link up your feathered project!

**Challenges: BasicGrey Challenges - Anything Goes, Mema's Crafts - Anything Goes, Papercraft Junkies - Things with Wings

Fireworks at LMMS!

The new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Challenges is Inspired by Fireworks! There are some gorgeous inspiration photos on the blog to get you going...

That cute dude is Dill!
While I do need to take another photo of this card, I can tell you that I used some Dylusions sprays that came in today!! from Blitsy to cover up a piece of glossy cardstock. I was going for the burst of colors you see during a fireworks show. The sentiment area was masked, but I moved the paper in my spray container and it went through... I think I might outline the masked section to make the shape show a bit more.

Head over to the challenge, check out my teammates' creations, then get started on your own! There are free digis to be won... :D

**Challenges: Digi Stamps 4 Joy - Bingo! (No glitter, no ribbon, a person stamp, no apples, and no buttons), The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
