Life is short…

Good Sunny Morning and it is FRIDAY!! ….(remember when that was a really big deal?)

Oh my - there are a few crafty challenges floating around the stamping world this week - namely - Reverse Confetti's Sketch For You To Try,  The Color Throwdown #378 and todays Splitcoast Stampers challenge - to make a masculine valentine - done and done.  I am diving right in.

Easy As Pie is a Reverse Confetti stamp set with cutie matching dies and I have been eyeing it for a few months now ---I finally broke down and purchased it woohoo! and it is just as sweet as I imagined it to be.

I'm calling Artistic License on this one - hah!  I just could NOT picture gray pie crusts- so I layered vellum overtop of my patterned paper to create a gray shade (okay? okay.)

I die cut the pie "crust" from kraft cardstock and the pretty pink stripe paper for the "pie tin" is Papertrey Ink's (almost) newest colour Lovely Lady.  Both of the precious hearts are from Love Note Confetti Cuts.

I added lots of "sugar" (glitter) to the pie crusts - men LOVE that, and a shiny red heart sequin on the top.  My pies were layered onto a tag die which was tied with ribbon, twine and an aqua mist button.

Why don't you hop on over to any of these fabulous challenges and give it a go - use your Artistic License!!
