Friday Flashback: One Smart Cookie

Happy Friday, peeps!  This weeks stamp set du jour is a cute little set called One Smart Cookie, which has teeny tiny little images and punny phrases to go with.  So let's flash back!

Also features Tart & Tangy
Here you see what I mean about the punny phrases.

Also features Fruit & Flowers
I admit:  I bought One Smart Cookie for the wee apple, which I used on baby books (look in the corner of the journaling square).

Also features Perfectly Preserved
So the larger apple images might have changed a little bit...

Also features Tart & Tangy
But that tiny apple stayed the same.

Also features Tart & Tangy
I'm very proud to say that the baby books I'm close to finishing right now have September pages that are completely different, with nary an apple in sight.  But I didn't want One Smart Cookie to feel left out, so I made a couple of cards for today's Friday Flashback.

How do you like them oranges?  All of the stamps in One Smart Cookie are tiny, so I was a little worried about what I was going to do until I saw the sketch at Create with Connie and Mary:

I thought it worked out so well on the orange card that I made another one:

I used my Color Coach (why did this retire again?!) to come up with the color combo on here--Soft Sky, Rich Razzleberry, and Old Olive.  This card will go to my hubs' cousin, who had us over for dinner last week.  That means that this also qualifies for The Male Room challenge to use fruit:

Actually I think the orange card will go to a little boy, so they both count (Mom, I will put that card in a pile for you to send to your little penpal).  So that's it for me this week, peeps.  The hubs is off work today so I think we're going to drive out to Monticello, but I need to go get cleaned up first.  Cheers!

Really cute cards and quite a flashback! Your CAS design works so well with these because the focus is on the sentiment! Great job! Thanks for joining us at Create with Connie and Mary!

How fun! The orange card is bright and cherry. A creative take on both challenges! Thanks for playing along this week at Create with Connie and Mary!

Both cards are great Christy. The orange one brings back memories of my old Tart and Tangy stamp set. TFS.

So fun using your flashback set and creating your orange and grape cards! The sketch was perfect for it! Thanks for playing along with the sketch challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary!

Love the two cards you did for the sketch challenge! Great play on words with your stamps! Thanks for playing the Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge last week! Sorry I am late with my comment. Family health issues. Better late than never!

That is a great colour combo, may have to borrow it some time. I like the little grapes and the punny sentiment. Thanks for joining us in The Male Room fruity challenge
