Little Miss Muffet


Morning Custard Lovers!

A little while back, I was delighted to be asked by Barbara to join the fabulous Design Team at Little Miss Muffet Stamps. Of course, keeping it quiet has been difficult so I've had to resort to some Intensive Curtain Twitching to keep me out of mischief. Ooh, the things that go on in my street! My neighbours obviously don't realise they have a Highly Trained Surveillance Operative living amongst them. You should've seen how quickly Very Understanding Hubby dropped the remote control when I told him that our neighbour (you know, the hot, skinny, blonde one with questionable occupation) had all her friends out in the back garden. 'Whoosh' doesn't seem to do the speed justice. But anyway, I'm off on a Fluffie tangent. I'll tell you about the neighbour who likes to cook 'A La Mode' another day.

So there's a new Challenge over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps today and the Design Team have some cracking creations to get you inspired. What's it all about? Well, Outside the Die Cut. We'd like to see a part of your image peeping outside the Die Cut. Simples.

I've used Monster Winds from the Monster Mash Range. This adorable little guy is just perfect for this technique, don't you think? And yep, I'm still into clouds and doodling right now. But don't worry, spots and stars return later in the week.

Sweet Cheeks is still trying to bend Mummy to his will and I'm rebelling at every opportunity. It's taking it's toll on Mojo, who's currently sitting by a pool, waving two fingers in the air at me! ;)

I'm entering this card at:

Craft Your Days Away - Summertime
Craft your Passion - Anything Goes
Kaboodle Doodles - In the Garden
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
The Sweet Stop - Sketch which I've Rotated and Mirrored!!

Love the colours you chose for this little guy. Your right he is perfect for this technique

The layout and DP are perfection.

Sorry bout' your neighbor. Would gladly trade you, our's has a pool and stays up late all night playing "horribl" Country music. Then they usually end up in a extremely loud argument around 11:30 pm. Although a hot blonde, and pool: not a good combo - you keep your neighbor thanks ;D
