Hop on over the the Humble Pie blog for the new challenge, and to find out if you won last week! This week, we are calling for altered items. Remember, you DO NOT need to use a Humble Pie image, but if you have them, by all means ink those babies up!!

So, this morning I've got a card that I made for the High Hopes Challenge this week. It's a recipe challenge 3-2-1...3 flowers, 2 brads and 1 sentiment! I inked up my brand new Party Cow...love this stamp! I have a few other items she can be holding too, but thought it would be fun to have her presenting some flowers as a thank you gift. The flower stamp is also from High Hopes. I wanted to keep this card fairly simple. I also stretched myself on this one...I don't usually do such bright colour combos! But this cow is just so happy, that she needed a bright and cheery background. These papers are from a small pack I picked up at Winners...seriously, you need to keep an eye on their scrapbooking section because sometimes they get great items in there! Unfortunately, I cannot remember the company name!
I wasn't sure that my stamped flowers would count for the recipe, so I layered three flowers and added a little rhinestone centre. The two brads are holding my sentiment, which is from a Popcorn the Bear stamp set. Check it out...that sentiment is cut out with my brand new Labels 8!!! I have been wanting this set for so long, and finally picked it up from Skribbles n Scraps in Sarnia. This is such a simple recipe to follow that you have no excuse! If you have a High Hopes image, then hop on over there and play along! As always, I stamped my images on Neenah Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured with Copics.
Thanks for stopping by! Let me know you were here so I can pop by your blog and see what you've been up to!

That beautiful flower is made with layered Primas and a cardstock poinsettia. The card base is SU, the main DP is Basic Gray Wassail (this is a beautiful pack of Christmas papers!), the sentiment was printed on my computer. The ribbon is American Crafts (it was not the right shade of green however, so I just coloured it with a Copic marker to match). Finally, I sponged all the edges with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I really love this combination of traditional Christmas colours.
