returning soon, i promise!

just saying hi and posting a few challengy things while i have some spare time... will be driving my english bird to the Newark airport this afternoon, but not before we get her some fabulous stamped images ready to go. i'm going to pick her up in a little bit, but first, some stuff that's going on....

our new Humble Pie challenge is posted, and it's a FUN ONE! the task is to create something with a halloween theme that is NOT a card. (you do not have to use Humble Pie stamps for this!) i made a lantern sleeve using Ellie:

pop over HERE to play along! there is so much that can be done for halloween, and our Bakers have used some yummy recipes!

we also have two new features on the Humble Pie Blog; Tutorials, and Tips and Tricks from the kitchen... check us out for time and money-saving ideas!

and we are into our fourth week of challenges at Design Dollies!! so far we've loved the response you've all given us, and the projects submitted have been wonderful! this week, we'll be wrapping up and getting ready for new challenges and a new prize pack in each category for November. but FIRST... the challenges that are going on RIGHT NOW...

Kristy posted another yummy sketch challenge last Thursday:

my take on this:

(how much can a person love ball trim?)

you have until this WEDNESDAY NIGHT (midnight EST) to upload your entry for this sketch (the deadline is past for combining all three of last week's challenges).

then, yesterday we posted our new colour challenge, MONOCHROMATIC BROWNS. any project, but you must use mono browns as your predominant colours.

here's my card:

(don't you just LOVE that sentiment?!)

and then our last October ELEMENTS challenge from the Adina Dollie... STRIPES! any theme, any colours, but STRIPES must be VERY visible throughout. i chose a Bella for the occasion:

and finally - sorry for the photo-heavy content in this one, folks, i have some catching up to do! - a card i made for Caardvarks' new challenge, "a tall order"...

there, i think that wraps it all up for now! i'm sure there are some things i'm forgetting, but my time is limited until later tonight, then back to our regularly scheduled programming starting tomorrow! i'm not looking forward to getting back to work, but i have missed my bloggy friends! have a great day, folks! :)


  1. ooooooooooooooookay it's JUST NOT FAIR to post so many FAB THINGS at one time, missus!!! for one thing, i don't know what to ooh & ahh over first...for another, it really makes those of us who post one item per day (MAX!) look like we're slacking.

    however, i shall let it slide THIS TIME seeing as how every single thing in said post is AWESOME and i've seen at least 7 ideas i want to steal...(AHEM!)..."pay tribute to" (that's better!) in future!

    definitely ♥looooooooooving♥ the tall card AND that fabulous butterfly (with awesome sentiment) AND the ransom-style lettering on the luminary AND...ok, pretty much everything is gorgeous and VERY cool!!! :)

  2. I'm sure you and your friend had a great visit! All of your goodies are fantastic, dollie! I've missed your daily doses of inspiration and creative juices.
