Blues and Creams at Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Good morning!  Well it's probably not so much for me... I have scheduled this post as I found out last minute that I have to cater for an office meeting for the boss for lunch today.  Yikes!  I hate cooking in an unfamiliar environment!

The menu:
Nibbles: leek and brie pastries and mini chicken cakes with hoisin sauce
Starter: Thai fish cakes with Asian style salad
Main: Caramelized chilli pork served with coconut rice, baked honey garlic butternut and roasted asparagus
Dessert: Individual pavlovas with pastry cream, cream and strawberries

Our challenge this fortnight at Little Miss Muffet Stamps is Blues and Creams!  A tough one right?  Actually it wasn't so bad at all and I quite liked how my card turned out...

This is another small card... 11cm x 11cm... I have been making quite a few of them lately to give as a gift.  The image is Linda Lee Hatter (I do so love Barbara's Hatter Girls) and I have coloured her with copics (see details below).  The papers are from My Mind's Eye, the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and the tag is from Maya Road.  The sentiment stamp is from Pollycraft.

So, what do you think?  Want to join us this week?  If you are not convinced yet, head over to the challenge blog and check out the fabulous creations from my teamies!  On another note, we are all super pleased to have our fearless leader back with us and feeling a tad better, and let me tell you... she has been creating up a storm and there are some exciting things up her sleeves!  But all will be revealed in February...  just make sure you don't miss out on the excitement!

Here is a close-up of Linda Lee Hatter.

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Whimsical Wednesday: Anything Goes
Whimsy Stamps: Blue and brown
Cupcake Craftroom: Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments: Anything Goes

Wish me luck today!

Hi Arabella, another gorgeous card - love the colouring and the image is just so cute!

Your menu sounds wonderful, personally (not being a meat eater) I think I'd pig out on the nibbles and pavlova - but then that's another thing gone on the New year resolution, no nibbles (too many nibbles is how I got to be the size I am!!!).

Hope it all goes well for you,
