True Blue

Good morning!  Yeah, it's Monday... I wish it wasn't, but there you go... I had every intention of posting over the weekend, but work got in the way and our two day weekend became a one day weekend.  Tomorrow we have a big 20 plus guest trip on the boat for the day and I have to feed them all finger food!  Aahh!! I'm freaking out worrying that we aren't going to have enough food or drink for them!  Ah the worries of a superyacht stewardess whose job role has morphed into more chef than stewardess.

Anyway, enough of my moaning... today I have a Little Miss Muffet card to share with you using several of my fabulous LMM rubber stamps...  If you head over to the Little Miss Muffet stamps blog you will see some awesome Monday Inspiration from my teamies and some previews using the brand new Park Glen Door die!  I would show you mine, but I forgot to take a photo when we got home from work last night, so here's my Iris May Hatter card instead:

This colour blue is very striking in real life... I really should use it more often, but I struggle to find matching papers... It seems that most of the papers I buy have more muted tones of blue.  The background paper I have used here is a gift from my lovely blog friend Maria Therese (thanks Maria!).

The pins and buckle are from my stash and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.  The butterfly is a brad from My Mind's Eye.  The stamps I have used are Iris May Hatter, Hatter Hat Stands and the Hatty Birthday sentiment.

Here's a close-up:

And here are the copics I used:

And I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Amusing Challenges: Anything Goes
The Crafty Pad: Use Ribbon
The Ribbon Girl: Use Ribbon or Lace

That's it from me for now... gotta run... I've got lots of food prep to do for tomorrow!
