C4C121 Layer It On!

Hello and Happy Saturday!
Before we get on with this week's Crazy 4 Challenges challenge, we'd like to welcome Kelli Hull to the CRAZIES...Kelli is going to be such a fun and talented addition to the team!
It is with sadness that we say a farewell to Maria, however, as she is coping with some personal issues right now. Please know that we are all sending love and prayers your way, Maria.

Joanne is our hostess for  January and her final challenge of the month is to 
LOTS and LOTS of layers and embellies!!!
Well I had to make a few sympathy cards this week as my community has suffered a few seems to happen like that doesn't it? When it rains, it heart goes out to all those hurting right now.

I inked up this gorgeous Hydrangea stamp from SU! and used some CTMH papers to create this heartfelt card! There are TEN layers including the base and a few embellishments...I think that should suffice for this!!

Please join us...just remember to link your card back to the C4C Blog using the Mr Linky provided!!!

Thanks so much for stoppin' by for a little Stamps 'n' Coffee!!

Oldie but a Goodie Challenge

I found a fun Challenge Blog today called
Their challenge is to use something that is AT LEAST six months old on your card!!!
I thought to myself...what a great challenge...I have a RIDONKULOUS amount of stuff in my craft room that is probable 2-3 years old if not older!! I have since stopped buying so much and try to stick to tools and consumables (glue, cardstock and other such not-fun stuff)! So I figure if I do this challenge EVERY week, I will eventually use up at least SOME of my aging stash!!!

So here is my card!! The stamp is a NEW release from the Totally Stampalicious Bugaboo line! Isn't he adorable!!?
My Oldies but goodies  are the dp, the fun little brads, and the tag stamp set! The other stuff is probable over 6 months old as well, but it was the things that I listed that I literally 'dug out' for this challenge!
 I got a little carried away while coloring...he actually started out much lighter and yet somehow ended up being a rather dark brown...clearly someone should have intervened and taken my markers away!!!
Well that's it from me today! Thanks so much for stoppin' by for a little Stamps 'n' Coffee!

Make Someone Laugh Today!

Hey Peeps!
Hope you all had a chance to check out the Totally Stampalicious New Release and Blog Hop! You can see all 5 NEW Sets now HERE!
We have another super FUNny challenge over at the Totally Stampalicious Blog!
We want yo to make someone laugh...or at the very least smile in good humor, by creating a FUNNY card or project!

For my project I used JJ Desperate Housewife to create this fun wall hanging for my kitchen!

The sentiment reads "You'll eat it and you'll like it!"

I picked up those papers many months back from a Scrapbook Store and was happy to finally put them to good use! I used Walnut Distress Ink to stain the wooden plaque and letters! Next I need to go and buy a protective lacquer/spray and hope that it won't interfere with the copics and ink!

Well that's it from me today....thanks so much for stoppin' by for a little Stamps 'n' Coffee!!
