Crazy 4 Challenges- Chocolate and Forgotten Stamps Friday

Hey everyone, and happy Saturday! I am running a bit behind on my Crazy 4 Challenges post, but I am here now....and it's a YUMMY one this week!! Joanne Grzelak who is our challenge hostess this month has another amazing challenge for us all ......

Tomorrow, May 15 is National Chocolate Chip Day!!! Have some image related to ‘chocolate’ on your card/project today. (Eating a chocolate chip cookie during the creative process is optional –but who could pass up a reason to eat a chocolate chip cookie or two??!!!)

If you decide to play along with us, all you have to do is create a card/project, and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword C4C87. Don't forget to come back here and link it on Mr Linky so that everyone else can see it too.

It is also time for a Forgotten Stamp Friday post!! Blogger wasn't working, so I decided to go ahead and post it today! Not familiar with this challenge...well, you should be!! Every week(except last week where I TOTALLY flaked, sorry!!!), I challenge myself, and all of you, to make a card using your poor, lonely, dusty, unused, forgotten stamps. I feel guilty with the sheer VOLUME of stamps that I own in comparison to what I ACTUALLY use, so this challenge is one that helps me to ease my guilt a little. There are NO rules, just that you
b) use a stamp that is either unused or owned and un-inked for 6 months
c) come back and add yourself to the linky thingy so I can see what you've done
d) be sure if you upload to SCS, that you use the keyword FSF22...that way I can find you!!

For my card today, I decided to go with a YUMMY chocolate cupcake! My image is the à la modes- Birthday Girl. I stamped her on a piece of X-Press It Blending card, and then colored parts of her with my Copics. The rest was paper pieced with some MME Stella&Rose Gertie paper. I then layered her with Taken With Teal, Rose Red(both SU) and Hot Fudge(MFT). My ribbon is from MFT, and my brads are from Michael's. I used the Open Scalloped Doily Die-namics, as well.

Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out the other Crazy Girls for some inspiration, if you want to play along with Forgotten Stamp Friday, Be sure to add your name to the linky thing!!
