Guest Designer at Little Miss Muffet


A couple of weeks ago I won a challenge over at Little Miss Muffet Challenges and was pleased to accept an invitation to be a Guest Designer. This week the challenge is SUMMER, which is so timely and appropriate for all of us who are melting in the heat and humidity.

I am using this image from the Little Miss Muffet store called Treehouse Headquarters. I can just picture every child with a vivid imagination spending their summer up there - what a fun place to be but I hope it has air conditioning.  Since this is a card for a child I decided to go with bright primary colours and keep the layout pretty simple, which is difficult for me when the flowers, pearls and lace are calling out to me from my craft cupboard but it showcases the great image.  I encourage you to pop over to the Little Miss Muffet store and check out all the other fun stamps available for purchase.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Creative Stamp Friends - Summer
Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges - Anything Goes
Paper Playtime - Summer
Pollycraft - Summer Fun
Stamps & Fun = Creativity - Digi Stamp
Dream Valley Challenges  - Summer Theme
