Little Miss Muffet

Good morning blogworld

I had some good news a few weeks ago - I won a challenge over at Little Miss Muffet Challenge blog and, alongside the prize itself, was asked if I'd like to make something for a Guest spot.  Of course I said yes!! I've never done a Guest Design before and was well chuffed to be asked!

The challenge theme is 'What a fuss' - so fussy cutting.  Now a year or so ago I would've almost changed my mind when I heard that!  But I'm practising my cutting skills (I wonder if my bad scissorship is because I'm left handed?) and I'm slowly getting better.  In fact, so much so that I'm beginning to prefer cutting out the image than putting it through me Cuttlebug!

Anyways - before I bore you all to death - here's the card:

The Front Shot:

His Close Up:

 The Arty Farty:
I used:

Digi Stamp:
coloured with Copics and ProMarkers

Echo Park - A Boy's Life

Anything else?
Arrows, sentiment - We Are Memory Keepers; Whiteout 
Twine from B&Q!!

And that's about it folks!  It's just time to say thanks to Faye for asking me to GDT, a complete privilege and sooo exciting!

And apologies again for not blogging much just lately - still getting back into the craft habit!!

Hopefully see you all soon.


A challenge, or two:
