Humble Pie Christmas Release Blog Hop!

Good morning fellow stampers! Humble Pie is excited to announce a brand new release of the Sweetie Pie line just in time for Christmas! These stamps will be available exclusively at The Town Scrapper. To kick off this new release, we are having a fun blog hop. Along the way, you will meet the newest members of The Bakers! Some of the Bakers have blog candy up for grabs. There is also a grand prize of two new Humble Pie Christmas stamps donated by Phebe at The Town Scrapper!! Rumour has it, that there might even be a few surprise goodies!
If you arrived here from Shelly's blog, then you are on the right track! If not, hop over to Kim's place to start your adventure!
To be eligible for the grand prize, you must visit every Baker on the list, and leave a comment to let us know you were there. Make sure to take some time to look at these blogs...there are some wonderfully talented ladies on this team! Hey...why not become a follower of the Humble Pie blog?? We have weekly challenges with great prizes up for grabs!
So here is my card for the hop! This is Maggie, all ready to decorate her tree! Both Maggie and the tree are part of the new release. I love this Christmas tree...it's so much fun! Maggie's pretty cute too in her Santa jammies. These papers are from my stash...unfortunately I do not remember the company name! Maggie was pop-dotted on some Nesties Labels.
As always, I coloured the image with Copic markers. I also added some Frosted Lace Stickles to her trim, the lights and the tree decorations. Christmas cards are perfect for adding lots of glitter! The ribbon is American Crafts. The poinsettia...from my stash! That great brad in the centre of the flower is also available at Phebe's store.

So, grab a cup of coffee or tea and off you go now on the hop. Here is a list of all the Bakers participating today.

Welcome! said...

Melanie, your cards are just out of this world!!!! This one is great - I love this new image! Thanks for your lovely comment, the only reason I was able to finish off those two cards is because I was packing up the craft room and I couldn't resist lol - and of course that bow was made with the bow-easy, although I would love to think I can tie bows like that on my own!!! Going to try to do the hop!!! Hugs, Krista

Lisa said...
