WoooHoooo...My News and a Card

I am doing a happy dance as I got some awesome good news this week. I've been invited to be part of the Design Team for Humble Pie. I am so excited to be working with such a great group of ladies/Bakers and to create with the Humble Pie line of stamps and images. Thanks for the opportunity ladies and for your warm welcome. I've added the names and links to the DT members on my sidebar so click their names to stop by and visit.

Check out the Humble Pie Blog for the latest news and join in on the weekly Friday challenges. This week's challenge calls for Buttons and Bling and because the stamp line is new the use of a Humble Pie stamp is NOT REQUIRED for this challenge. So get inky and participate in the challenge, you might be the lucky winner of $10 in Humble Pie Maggie Money to spend on Humble Pie stamps of your choice. Phebe, owner of the Town Scrapper store, also has a large selection of stamps, including her Humble Pie line, along with an assortment of beautiful papers and other wonderful crafty accessories.

Here's my first DT card and I've used Maggie with Flower from the Humble Pie line ~ isn't she's a cutie. I'm not a big button person so I enlisted the help of my girls who love collecting buttons and bling ~ lol! My little princesses never steer me wrong when it comes to bling so they had a little private talk amongst themselves ~ so cute ~ and then provided me with the blingy button from their shared collection. I don' think they realized it came from one of their very own sweaters. I added this sparkle of a gem to the centre of the flower and tied it with some Martha Stewart twine I've had for a while ~ I knew it would come in handy one day ~ lol. What do ya think?


I stamped the image with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Beckett Expressions white cardstock and coloured the image with Copics (E000, E00 E21, R20, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9, RV13, RV17, E29, E31, E33, E35, E39, V000, V01, V04, V12, Y00, Y21, Y23, Y26, Y38, YG05, YG11). Let me know what you think of the only took me 7 tries before I was happy with how it turned out. The card is a 5.5 x 5.5 and I used SU's Green Galore cardstock for the background and layered it with Kaiser DP (Playtime Giggle & Laugh). I also added some blingy rhinestones to the top corner of card and to the swirl flourishes I made with my EK Success punch. Prima flowers, rhinestones and ribbon came from my stash.


Today is a gorgeous Fall day in Ontario and the sun is shining. But we're starting to layer on the sweaters and jackets. I'm not ready for the winter jacket yet but it's still chilly so it won't be long. Thanks for stopping by to visit and for any comments you leave which are always very much appreciated.

I'm off to take my girls on a Fall walk. Enjoy your weekend and all the fall colours the season has to offer. Hugs,
