Hello and Good Afternoon!!

A couple of tidbits of info that I'd like to share before I provide the recipe for my submission to the HUMBLE PIE BLOG CHALLENGE of the week:

First of all, I 'd like to congratulate our very talented winner of last week's HUMBLE PIE SCALLOPS CHALLENGE, JACILYNN of!  Jacilynn's winnings consisted of $10 in HUMBLE PIE BUCKS to be used towards the purchase of any of HUMBLE PIE'S FABULOUS SWEETIE PIE STAMPS.  Congratulations Jacilynn!!  A special thank you also goes out to our other player in the 'Scallops' challenge, Itzuv.  The kitchen staff at HUMBLE PIE appreciate your efforts and love to see your wonderful creations!  Please keep sharing your delightful designs!!

Now, on to this week's HUMBLE PIE CHALLENGE.  This week the challenge we put forth is to incorporate BUTTONS AND BLING into your creation.  Can a card ever have too many buttons or too much bling? Not in our opinion!! We know we're new on the scene so the use of a HUMBLE PIE STAMP is NOT REQUIRED for this challenge. If you have managed to get your inky fingers on one of our FAB stamps however, we would love to see it in action! The HUMBLE PIE BAKERS have cooked-up a delectable sampling of BUTTON AND BLINGIFIED creations for a little inspiration. Come on, check them out HERE, you won't be disappointed!

My card for BUTTONS AND BLING features our little SWEETIE PIE Ellie.  I LOVE her whimsical appearance, don't you?

Card Details:
  • stamps-Ellie image is one of the cuties from HUMBLE PIE'S new stamp line SWEETIE PIE STAMPS.  The stitching is from Sassafrass Lass Stitched Borders Set and the sentiment was provided compliments of My Favorite Things.

  1. Hey Tricia!

    Love your card! You have definately "buttoned and blinged" your way to success here! So many great things happening on your card! Your colouring of Ellie is superb! I love the way you coloured her sneakers (does anybody even say sneakers anymore??!!). They remind me of the Converse my friends and I used to wear many, many, many years ago. lol.


  2. Great card Tricia! Love how you've coloured Ellie and the layout of your card. Thanks for your warm welcome to the team and I look forward to getting to know you. I've added you to my blogroll and am following you. Hugs, Maria
