Sweetie Pie

Today the Guild Hall was awash with the glorious smells of baking pies. The house gnomes were busy cooking up apples, cherries and other foods that they’ve been harvesting and turning them into delicious desserts. With so many sweets being created, we were lucky enough to have a sugar bear appear in the kitchen! These winged creatures tend to come round when there are treats being made and assist with the sugary process.

This card was created for the reminder about the Just Some Lines September Challenge that is happening now! The theme this month is Autumn/Fall or Back to School. Come play along with a JSL image for a chance to win a digi! Yipee!

I started by colouring the Sugar Bear image using my good ‘ol Prismacolor pencils. I then used my new Tim Holtz embossing diffuser to emboss all around the image earning me +70 diffusion exp points. 
I decided to add some sparkles to the little bear’s wings, cuz who can’t use more bling? The pie I cut out using the Country Life cartridge. I then stamped the sentiment on the rolling pin using the Lawn Fawn “My Silly Valentine” set. 

On the inside I stamped various sentiments using some Unity stamps and a MFP stamp. The smiley pie is from the Lawn Fawn “My Silly Valentine” set.

I used the cute little pie again to decorate the envelope, giving it a decisively more pie-like feel to it.   

This sugar bear will sweeten up the following challenges:

Upon spotting the sugar bear, the Lady Commander of Copics predictably squealed with delight and immediately asked if we could keep him. I tried to explain to her that the sweet fae bear would depart on his own accord when the desserts were complete, but she was already concocting plans to try and convince him to stay. It would be nice to have him around constantly baking for us...although then I’d need new tunics...larger tunics as I would surely not fit into my current ones any longer after ingesting so many sweets. Mmmm...pie...

Unfortunately a little sugar bear has been spending way too much time at my house judging by the tightness of my buttons :) Your card is delightful with the embossing around the sweet image. Love the combination of stamps on the inside of the card, too. Thanks for joining our Anything Goes/Harvest challenge at Craftitude. I hope we see you again soon
