Dollies and Pie! (mmm, yes please!)

happy black friday! i swore i wouldn't be doing any shopping today, but i was awake well past midnight, and HAPPENED to be online, so i kinda did some wandering around the intarwebs, and came across some nifty deals. Unity Stamps. WOOT. Two Peas. aww, yeah. i saw a bazillion other things i'd have liked to nab, but exercised willpower, and promised hubbin i'd been very good this year, so perhaps santa will bestow some crafty love upon me. :D

anyway. i'm going to drop my son off at a friend's house so they can go see New Moon tonight, and then i'll be back to do some cardmaking. but FIRST, new challenges!

check 'em out:

Design Dollies new SKETCH CHALLENGE! my Kristy-Dollie has an awesome new sketch, with a THEME for this week. the sketch:

and HURRY, because our DESIGN TEAM CALL will be wrapping up next WEDNESDAY, and we can't wait to be joined by a FEW GOOD (wo)MEN! :D

NEXT! today brings you another fabulous challenge at Humble Pie! i wasn't in this rotation, so i didn't play along, but the challenge is to create a MONOCHROMATIC PROJECT, using any theme or stamp you like. it can be a card, a layout, an altered item, a christmas ornament - the choice is yours! here's the prize we're putting out there this week:

which includes another SOPHIA LANDRY CHRYSANTHEMUM FAIRY rubber stamp, a Humble Pie exclusive! (and some other yummies, like those fab holiday papers and prima flowers!)

  4. OMG, Leah.. I LUURRRVVVEE this card! When I laid my peepers on this babe, I let out one of those low moans that you do when something gets you right deep down in your beauty centre. My neighbours must think I have a guy in here.
