Monday Inspiration at Little Miss Muffet Stamps!

Good morning!  It's Monday again!  I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!  My husband and I had a really lovely time in Santorini.  It's so beautiful and so nice and relaxing there!  We finally found a decent hotel in Greece (of course we had to pay a lot more for it though) with a comfortable bed and amazing views and we did lots of exploring by car and walking.  One of the nice things about our hotel was that they served each room their own private breakfast on their private balconies!  We had breakfast, privacy, and a beautiful caldera view! Bliss!  

That was probably the last free weekend we'll have all summer, so I'm really glad we took advantage of it and got to see one of the nicer parts of Greece while we are here.  Now it's back to business as usual.

We have some fabulous Monday Inspiration being showcased over at Little Miss Muffet stamps today to kick start your week creatively!  And later in the week we might even have some new releases!  Make sure you have the News Badge on your blog and have added your name to the linky if you want a chance of winning this week's new releases!

Here's my card for today using Summer Breeze in her rubber stamp version:

The papers are from October Afternoon, Hambly Screenprints and Crate Paper and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.  The tags and grunge corners are from LOTV and I stamped them in Rich Cocoa ink from Memento for a softer look.

I will update my copic colours this evening.

Here's a close-up of Summer Breeze:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Lets Ink it up: All Girl
One Stitch at a Time: Anything Goes

That's it from me for now!  I've got to go and do some work!

Hey Moneypenny. So glad you had such a lovely time at the weekend. Loving this card. The grungey touches are gorgeous. I've been playing today and there were a couple of times I reached for something like this... I don't have any! :( Must invest.

Absolutely beautiful in both coloring and color palette. Love how you've done the ring of tags!

She's just beautiful! I LOVE her hair. And her shawl and bare feet. Very whimsical.

So glad you had a fabulous holiday - great that the hotel turned out so well. Breakfast on the balcony with a view sounds like a little bit of heaven ;) - you so deserve it. Both of you.

Thinking of you with much love.

I love you mix of colors. They are superb for each other. I always shy away from mixing colors and after seeing this card I shouldn't. Thanks for the inspiration and for joining us this week at One Stitch at a Time.

The background stamps on there really adds interest and I love the little tags on it! The papers are gorgeous and makes me want to go shopping some more! LOL Great coloring and really a good focus on the image with the position - love it!
