Good morning ladies. Todays card is for the Humble Pie monochromatic challenge. I decided to use Maggie but I got rid of the flower she was holding and had her sitting in front of the christmas tree. I coloured the images in with my copic markers added some bling, stickles and a bit of crystal lacquer to the star. I pop dotted the tree and the sentiment is a rub on from Stampin Up. I used my new Martha Stewart punch that I picked up from SGD. (love it) and the paper is from a paper pack I picked up from the $ store.

Have a terrific weekend.

Good morning, how’s everyone been? I have been MIA for a little while, but I think you’ll all understand. I went to my first scrapbooking retreat this past weekend and it was fabulous!!! I ‘ve never been to one before, and I can’t wait until I get the chance to go again. I didn’t realize how much prep work I would need to do. So that’s my excuse, I was getting ready all last week for my weekend away, did I mention it was just outside of Lambeth. How funny is that. If you didn’t know I live in London, that’s only about a half hour away, lol. But it was nice not to have a long car ride and if I did forget anything I could have popped home to get it.

All in all it was such a great weekend, I completed about 10 double layouts, and 3 singles. Not as much as I hoped for but I would have never gotten that much done at home. I highly suggest if you get the opportunity to go on one of these, just do it you’ll have sooo much fun. And make sure to tell me, I wanna come too 😉 hee hee.

So todays post is for the Humble Pie challenge blog. We were given the task to alter an item. I don’t do this much myself . But here’s what I came up with. I love to save containers if I think they’ll serve me a purpose. So this was an old Tim’s french vanilla cappuccino tin.  *yummy*

I covered it with some paper and added Christmas Maggie to it, that I coloured in with my copics and added some crystal lacquer to the ornaments.

Pretty simple, and I’m calling it my “Christmas Cash Stash.” I find if I keep setting some money aside for my Christmas shopping it helps. A girl can try, right?

If you’d like to see what the other designer divas came up with go here.  Humble Pie stamps are only available at the Town Scrapper and Phebe is offering a special.  Buy 1 item and get 2nd of equal or lesser value for 50% off.  Sale is on until the middle of January 2010.

Take care and have a great day!

High hopes sleepover

Filed under: Cards — angiebaker @ 9:37 am

Good morning I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. The weather was pretty fabulous I think. It was nice to get outside and get some yard work done, and get the kids summer toys away before they get covered in snow. I know don’t hate me for saying that, but we all know it’s coming.

Todays card is from high hopes, I coloured the girls using my copics, I inked the edges of it with some pink and added some  liquid pearls to the feathers and some white flock to make their slippers fuzzy.  I used my nesties to cut them out and added some ribbon and a few  buttons. The sentiment is from the Angel Company that I thought was perfect and the paper is one of my $ store finds.

Just a quick post today cause I think I’m off to the gym but I’m sitting here procrastinating. It’s been over a week cause I’ve been sick so I really don’t feel I have the energy. Excuses, excuses.  Arggghhh.

 Hope you have a great day.

Hope you’re all keeping healthy. Whatever flu bugs are out there you don’t want to catch any of them. My entire family has been under the weather for the last few days. Lastnight was the first time I left the house since Sunday. I had to go get a few groceries and by the time I got home I was exhausted.  Anyway enough about that, just stay healthy.  Take your vitamins, wash your hands and take care of yourself 🙂

So, todays card is for the Humble Pie card challenge this week.  It was to be a circle card. So I pulled out this scalloped circle card that I bought ages ago from Stamp Art and used my nesties to create a couple of more borders.

I coloured my snowman who is from the newest release from Humble Pie, with my copics. I used some crystal lacquer just on the edges and sprinkled some chunkier glitter on to make it look like snow. I also used the crystal lacquer on the lights but there pretty small so you probably don’t see it.  The sentiment I just picked up from Michaels, one of those $1.50 acrylic sets. I love them, I got about six. lol

I popped a few snow flakes as well as the snowman and there we have it.  If you’d like to participate in this weeks challenge or just for some festive inspiration check out the rest of the design teams cards at here.

Have a great week.
