C4C72 Sassy and Shabby Chic!

Happy Saturday!
The wonderfully talented Maria Bell has one more awesome challenge for us before her month as the Crazy 4 Challenges hostess is up, and this week she has doing a 'vintage style' or 'shabby chic' kind of card or project!! I love this kind of challenge because it is not a style I usually use, yet I LOVE it!!

*Funny Story*
So I actually made this card a while back BEFORE I contacted the artist of the fabulous and sassy Stella, Jodie Mackerell, to ask whether Stella's mouth is OPEN or CLOSED! Now as some of you may know, my stamp company, Totally Stampalicious turns Jodie's Bugaboo Digi's into 'rubbah' (clear stamps actually but you know what I mean!) Well all this time, I thought Stella's mouth was open!! I even argued with my partner/co-owner Becky about this! Well as it turns out...SHE was RIGHT...Stella's mouth is CLOSED (as confirmed by her creator, Jodie)! I have since started coloring her in the way she was intended to be...but here is one last card...
*sigh* There you have it folks...publicly announcing to the world, well blog land anyways, that I was WRONG!

Thanks for taking the time to stop in for a little Stamps 'n' Coffee!!

C4C70 Thankful for Flower Soft!

Happy Saturday!
It's time for another challenge from Maria, our Crazy 4 Challenges hostess with the mostest!
This week she has making Thank You cards...and who doesn't need more of those on hand?!
We also can be grateful this weeks Sponsor!

This week our fabulous sponsor is Flower Soft.

Flower Soft was kind enough to send us these GORGEOUS colors to play with and I was completely inspired to use them on some FRUIT!! So I guess in this case, you could call it Fruit Soft? No? Just doesn't have the same ring to it does it? is my first Thank You card which I must say, I had all kinds of fun making!!

So much fun in fact, I decided to keep playing and make this little trio of 3x3 Thank You cards! I used some Sticky Strip to adhere the Flower Soft in nice straight lines! You need to press down very firmly in order to make sure it all sticks!! The glue works much better with this stuff for sure...but it still worked with the tape!

Blushing Bride, Pink Passion, Daffodil, Tangerine, Apricot and Green Galore were the papers and inks I used for these projects!
Thanks for taking the time to visit me today and don't forget to play along with all of us Crazies...just leave a link to your card or project back a the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog!
