Little Miss Muffet - Writing - Add a Book Page

Good morning everyone, Happy Thursday!  As you are reading this I am getting to know a new year of Kindergartners and showing them around our school.  I always feel bad for them the first few days of school because there is so much they have to know before really beginning anything, and so much time is spent talking to them about rules, routines, the school and much more.  They are always exhausted at the end of the first day but mostly exhausted from listening to me talk.  It gets better as time goes on, but it is hard for a four or five year old to have to listen as long as we want and need them to.

Today at Little Miss Muffet we are starting a new challenge and that challenge is Writing, Add a Book Page.  Now, I knew what the challenge was, I kept telling myself to find an old book page (I hate tearing apart books.  I ALWAYS feel like I am doing something wrong!).  I found a few challenges that I wanted to gear my card towards so I could enter them. I mean, the planning was pretty good.  And then, I finished my card and huh, no writing or book page in it.  Really!?  I knew what I had to do but while actually working on my card my brain, well, my brain decided to take a little break.  Sooooooo, my card is an example for those of you who are choosing to use a Little Miss Muffet image.  At our challenge blog if you  use a Little Miss Muffet image then the challenge is always Anything Goes and you don't have to create a project to fit our theme.  This is good for people like me whose brains take a break when you really just need them to be working.

As I said I did create my card to fit into two other challenges.  I am entering my card into the challenge at the Color Me Creative website, which is to use the color yellow.  I am also entering my card into the challenge at The Sweet Stop.  The Little Miss Muffet image I used is Julia.

Here's the sketch this week at The Sweet Stop.

Here's my card using this sketch, although I turned it a little to best fit my colored image.

Materials Used For This Project:
Copic Markers
Wild Orchid Flowers
MS Rose leaf punch

Here's a close up of the colored image.

If you're looking for an idea to fit this week's challenge then stop on by the challenge blog where the rest of the DT team have really outdone themselves with their creations.  AND, they didn't lose their mind halfway through, so their cards are following this weeks challenge!  Lol!
