I'm late!

I'm late with my Little Miss Muffet Stamps post today!  Sorry about that!  Things got on top of me this week... My parents left to fly back to NZ this morning and we have a guest trip starting this evening, so it was a race to get everything organised!  We had a great time with my parents, but I hope they weren't too bored!  They helped me out at work a lot!  I hope their looong trip back to NZ goes smoothly.

This week at Little Miss Muffet stamps we are showcasing a new Sugar n' Spice Dolls cutie called Saffron.  She is actually a FREEBIE, so if you head over here you can find out how to get her!  We have some very talented guests this week too, so head over to the Little Miss Muffet Challenge blog and check out all the fabulous creations from the team!  And don't forget we have an Anything Goes and be a follower challenge running at the moment as well as a DT call!

Here's my card:

I have coloured Saffron with copics (see details below) and followed the current sketch at Sketch Saturday.  The papers are from Crate Paper as are the border stickers in the background.  The brads are from the Stella and Rose collection from My Minds Eye.  The sentiment is made with Doodlebug rubons.  

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday: Sketch 186
Art Impressions Stamps #45: Die cuts or punches (the circles)
Charizma Card Challenges Week #50: Anything Goes

Here's a close-up of Saffron:

And here are the copics I used:

Have a lovely weekend! And Happy New Year!

She is gorgeous Arabella! I love her red muff and hat fluff. The layout is fab especially those border stickers. Too cute. Hope your parents have a safe trip back to NZ.

I'm late too, in commenting that is. Sorry, got swallowed up by the Holiday craziness.
