Make It Monday #127 with Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Here I am again, just scraping it in with my Make It Monday post for this week.

Let's just say first couple of weeks back at school for my eldest son have been pretty hard going. 
I think it is safe to say that Autism and school are not generally a good fit. 

We did have a lovely weekend though (weekends are always so much less stressful than school days). Had a birthday party to go to with my middle son and even though it was pouring with rain he had an absolutely blast. What more could a boy want than party food and muddy puddles, lol!

By late Sunday afternoon I was beginning to think I might not get my card finished for this week's 

linky party

but with a quiet hour to myself I managed to get it all finished, photographed and now posted.

I have used this absolutely adorable image called Rosealba Faerie from our sponsor this week.

We are pleased to welcome another new sponsor to Make It Monday this week.
The absolutely fabulous

Howdy from Little Miss Muffet Stamps!  This little shoppe was inspired by a house full of Little Miss Muffets and arachnophobes alike. It isn't too difficult to image how I ended up here since I've been drawing and coloring from the moment I picked up a crayon. Now as I sit in my hobby room I get to share my passion with my own Little Miss Muffets who love to work along side of me.  Now I'm excited to share creations from two additional artists... Pollycraft by Paula and introducing Simply Sophia!!  With our three unique styles there is something you are sure to enjoy!

Little Miss Muffet will be offering our winner
3 digis of their choice!
