Flower Soft Challenge and Some SWEET STUFF for YOU!!!



Happy Wednesday everyone and I hope your week has started in such a positive way!! I am pre-posting this for you because I will be in the hospital on Tuesday getting the porthole installed....wonder if they can look in and see what's cooking in this old body??? lol I will begin 6 sessions of chemotherapy on Monday, March 1, so we will see just how well I handle this new experience!! The sessions will be 3 weeks apart so I am planning on LOTS of wonderful and creative days in between the sessions!!! AND on Day 15, the hair becomes a shiny head!!! Just think, no more haircuts and more $$$ for crafting stuff...wooooohoooooooo!!!!

This is my very first opportunity to contribute to the Flower Soft Blog and I have been looking forward to it so much since I was named to the DT several weeks ago! Our challenge today is to "Say It With Flower Soft" and a tutorial can be found HERE. I have also used a Moments In Time image for each of my cards and I think they are so darling! Moments In Time is a collection of heart-warming imagery brought to you by the talented illustrator Rikey Austin and developed by Flower Soft® into a series of nostalgic Card Toppers™ and Stamp Sets. Kling-on cushioning is included with each stamp.

For the first card above I used Just For You image and the DP is Imaginisce, a gift from the so sweet and very talented Suzan. Thanks Sweetie!! The image was colored with Distress Inks and then I added a bit of Flower Soft at her feet for dimension. The letters for HI were cut with Cricuit and covered with Ultra-Fine Flower Soft.

For the next card I used Cosmo Cricket DP and the image Man of the Match was colored with Copics, adding a bit of Flower Soft to the grass. The letters PALS are chipboard letters covered with Ultra-Fine Flower Soft.



The last card is the sweetest image Grows With Love colored with Distress Inks, adding a bit of Flower Soft to the grass. The DP is from Marianne Designs Pretty Papers Bloc Blue. GROW was just written on the CS and covered with Flower Soft.



Thank you so much for dropping by and I hope you will visit the Flower Soft Blog to see what the other DT members have done for the Say It With Flower Soft challenge!

NOTE: With more than 1400 comments on my last Sweet Stuff, please bear with me because it may be a day or so before I can eliminate all duplications, etc. to finally make the random selection! Never in my dreams could I image so many people coming by my little blog!!! My sincere thanks to everyone who visited!! I will try my very best to hurry the announcement!!!

BUT IN THE MEAN TIME......

Some More Sweet Stuff to help me celebrate my very first Flower Soft contribution!!!! For those of you who know me very well KNOW that my very favorite thing about blogging is making people happy and to share with you my successes in any way I can think of!! So this time I would LOVE to offer the following SWEET STUFF!!!!!



Martha Stewart Double-Edge Punch - Doily Lace Trim
Flower Soft Moments in Time Grows With Love stamp
Flower Soft - Spring
Flower Soft Ultra Fine Sage
Flower Soft Ultra Fine Raspberry Fizz
Flower Soft Glue

I am only asking that you leave a comment here, become a Follower at the Flower Soft Blog, and that you spread the word!!! The deadline will be Sunday, February 28, at Noon EST!! Good Luck!!!

Have a beautiful day, and I hope to see you back here very soon!! Thank you so much for all of the cards, emails, notes, thoughts, prayers, and lovely comments. You are all SO SPECIAL!!! Big hugs!!

JulyeB said...

Wow help and inspiration, I have 2 tubs of flower soft sat on my desk which I bought on a whim, it seemed likre a good idea at the time and I've only ever made one card using is as wasn't quite sure what to do so will certainly become a flower soft follower, and thanks for your inspiration. Hope all goes well and that the sun shines and brings warmer weather before day 15. Hope all goes well thanks for sharing Julye.

Linda aka backroads girl said...

You are truly an inspiration, not just in crafting, but in your outlook on life. I pray you have an easy time during your chemo. Let your husband shave your head (or best friend) before all your hair falls out. That's one way to take some control of the situation. I know several women who have survived this ordeal, and with God's grace you will, too.

Didn't even know FlowerSoft had a blog! I'm going to check it out right now!

Mo said...

Dear Jacque! I love flower soft - thanks for the chance to win your grat candy!

Littleminx said...

Hi Jacque

Having been through a similar experience a couple of years ago I wish you all the best on Monday. Your positive attitude will really help you on your journey. My only piece of advice is to get a soft warm hat to keep your head warm the brighter the better. You can always change the look each day with some prima flowers!!
My crafting helped me and I look forward to seeing some more of your fabulous work soon.
Hugs
