Some Little Miss Muffet Inspiration

Good morning all!  And a chilly morning it is here in Greece!  My husband and I are planning a trip back to NZ and Australia in a couple of weeks time to visit family and I'm already worrying about what clothes to pack.  It's always hard to imagine summer when you are in winter mode.  I'm sure I will get there with loads of too warm clothes and find I have nothing suitable to wear!

This week at Little Miss Muffet Stamps we have some mid-challenge inspiration to share and also five new DT members!  Please pop over to the challenge blog to meet my new teamies and see everyone's fabulous creations!  Our fearless leader is still sick unfortunately, but she is slowly recovering and is hoping to be out of hospital very soon.  We are all sending her happy healing thoughts!

For my project this week I decided to make another card box since I wasn't all that happy with the last one I made.  Thankfully I like this one a lot more:

This gorgeous lady is Miss Linda Lee Hatter from the Hatters collection.  She is such fun to colour!  The papers I have used for the box are from October Afternoon.  The red paper is from Pink Paisley and the brown paper is probably from Crate Paper.  The chipboard sticker is definitely from Crate Paper.   The brads are from My Minds Eye.  The seam binding is from The Ribbon Girl.

I would like to enter this card box into the following challenges:
Little Darlings Challenge #15: Favourite colour (blue... but red comes a close second)
My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge #39: Here come the girls
Bearly Mine Challenges: Anything Goes
Anything Goes Challenge #58: Anything Goes

Here are the copics I used:

Have a lovely day!

Loving this little box and wonderfully decorated. The little Hatter girls are just great. Love how the cards inside have a hat as focal point.

Hugs, Mette

Hi Arabella, gorgeous image used on the box and love the papers.

Must be exciting getting ready to visit your family back home - or do you consider Greece to be your home now? When hubby and I moved (we weren't hubby and I then, we were other half and I!) from our respective homes, I thought of our new house as home straight away, took him awhile longer.

Oh, and if you have nothing to wear - go shopping!!

I really like how you made this paper work! I have this pad, and the one you used for the top of the box looks great like this! Gorgeous work, as usual! (I can't believe you made something you didn't like...)
