Gettin' Inspired!

Although I don't have anything to show at the moment, I did want to give a quick word to let you all know that I plan on heading back to the scraproom next week.

I went with some friends to the local ScrapFest and was inspired and awed and now itching to get back at it.

I also got to try out some very COOL products. Ms. Emily and her awesome friendly crew from Stampingbella were demonstrating Dylusions Ink Sprays and the Koi markers! OH SO FUN - I LOVE the Make N Take we did with them! Grabbed me some TCW templates, but not the ink :( big mistake, now I can't find an online Canadian supplier for the Dylusions. D'oh!

As well, I got to meet Ms. Kimmie of KraftinKimmie, super amazing lady, tres friendly and she had lovely things to say about our friend Ms. Barbara of ForgottenScraps & Little Miss Muffet Stamps. 2 Idols in one day, not so bad!

Thanks to Kerry J. for introducing me to Kimmie. Some of you may know that Kerry of Cards by Kerry was the person who started me on my scrapbooking and cardmaking journey. Kerry made me some incredible thank - you cards as a baby gift many years back and then invited me to an SU party at her house and I was hooked. She has always been a great source of inspiration and information. She was the first one to get pestered by me with endless questions. ;D

Anyway, hope you are all well! I will be stopping by y'all soon!

Blogging Break

Just a head's up to everyone who follows my blog. I am going to be taking a bit of a blogging break. I was under the weather for a few weeks late February and have found that I now have a lot of things to catch up on in my personal life that are going to keep me away from the crafting table.

Not to worry, I will be back - how else can I expect to remain sane ;D Once I have everything sorted out and back on track, I hope to get back to the blogging.

Thanks for all the fab comments. Can't wait to get back to seeing everyone's inspirations soon - until then, hope you all are well and having fun!

LMM - Fancy or Lacey

Good Morning and welcome to another Little Miss Muffet Challenge - #29. Today we are making Fancy or Lacey projects.

I nearly choked on my Cheerieo's last week when I popped over to Inspiration post to grab the link and saw that Juliana Herrmann had used the very same images that I had already prepared for this week's challenge. I chalk it up to us both be very clever ;D Not one to waste, I still had to use it, after all it was already coloured up and begging to be made into a card.

MIC - Ivy Window Wall
DCWV - stack pack
button, dollar store flower brads & lace
SU sentiment - Fifth Avenue Floral
Quickutz - Flourish

Watcha Doin Wryn - New Release

Argh, I am having such camera issues. I am taking photo's and they look fin, all is well, but I upload them and they look dramatically different. Being that I am soooo under the weather, I gave up and my hubby took the photo for me, hence the tall building view angel ;D

Any way, onto a new Wryn release by Tiddy Inks, this is Watcha Doin'? merged with Make It Crafty's - Open Window digi. Check out the Tiddly Inks blog for more awesome samples from the DT's. BTW the Open Window also is available as a rubber stamp.

Quaint Cottage Inspiration Friday

Quick note, this card was chosen as one of the "FAVORITES for the week ending February 19, 2012. on SplitCoaststampers!

You MUST MUST MUST check out the new "Paris" release collaboration by Little Miss Muffet Stamps, Make It Colourful and Whimsy Stamps. All perfectly coordinated, you can buy: rubber stamps, digital stamps, backgrounds, background elements, sentiments, sentiment borders, and laser cut chipboard elements! How can you pass this up.

LMM - Sophia
MIC - Quaint Cottage
DP - Stampin Up
Now that I ranted, here is my Little Miss Muffet inspiration card of the week, and don't forget to check the DT over at the LMM Challenge Blog.
haha, I have to laugh! Barbara of LMM always does a coloured version of each image for her store site. I just popped over to get the linky of Sophia for this post and we coloured our Sophia's in the same outfit colours, even the shoe's. I HONESTLY had not peeked at her colouring before hand. I try not to, so that the colour can be completely unique to me. Same as the MIC cottage, I did not look at Zoe's coloured version first so as not to be influenced before hand.

Apparently I'm on a roll. I just popped over to the Challenge blog and Juliana Herrmann used the exact two images that I merged together for my next challenge, hehe and I have already coloured it too. So much for being original ;D
