Green again!

Hello!  This post is a bit late, sorry... we had a surprise 'lunch with guests coming' sprung on us this morning on the boat and we have all been scrambling to get the boat ready and food prepped.  So this will be a quick one... I need to keep prepping.

The news for the day:
- We have a new challenge starting over at Little Miss Muffet stamps and the challenge theme is Rainbows, Clouds or Wings!  Super easy and a fun one!   Do go and check out what my fabulous teamies have come up with!  There are so many ways to use this theme!

- Even bigger news!!!  Barbara is branching out and is releasing her first metal die for die cuts!  It's very cool... It's called the Park Glen Door.  Head over to the challenge blog to check it out!  

I have a Little Miss Muffet stamps card to share with you today using the adorable Jasmine who is now available as a rubber stamp!

Ooh look!  Another of Maria's lovely doilies and I used green!  Sarah I'm stepping out of my comfort zone for you!   The papers are from American Crafts and Simple Stories.  The green in the Simple Stories papers wasn't quite the right shade, so I adjusted it with my YG13.

The ribbon and twine is from The Ribbon Girl and the sentiment is a sticker from SRM.  The corner flourish is from Make it Crafty.

Here's a close-up:

Here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Divas by Design: Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes
Stampavie and More: For a Girl

Have a lovely day!

I'm off to do some more food prep!
