Welcome to this week’s Amusing Challenge! It’s a bit of a mish-mash challenge this weekend – we’re going with Cinco De Mayo or May Day – you choose! Throughout the month I have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc. I will have a Weekly Winner and at the end of the month, those 4-5 winners will go into a prize drawing for one lucky Grand Prize winner. Aprils’s Prize Winner will be announce tomorrow and they will receive Owl’s Well – it’s a stamp set that is A Muse Studio’s signature style! To check out the Retirement Sale (we’re now at 35% off!) visit my website.
I want to welcome Juliet, of Ballpoint Bliss, back as a guest designer this week! You may remember her beautiful work from earlier last year…I was tickled to see Juliet’s card celebrating a “May Day” theme and I love how she used the Egg stamp (from a previous monthly collection that is available while supplies last) and That’s the Ticket, also from A Muse Studio, and on sale right now for 35% off during their Progressive Retirement Sale.
amuse studio supplies: That’s the Ticket stamp set (retiring), Egg stamp set (while supplies last), Ticket Die, assorted Tombow Markers
Tricia, from 1phatchic, said this Cinco De Mayo themed card inspired by her teen-aged daughter. I loved the fun look but then the more I looked at it, I went bonkers about the details! Love her brayer work on the front. Be sure to click on these photos to enlarge them…
front and back decorated!

amuse studio supplies: Squeeze the Day stamp set (retiring – on sale for 35% off), Love and Thanks stamp set (March collection but I’ve heard it will make the new catty!), Grass Silky Crush ribbon, Toffee Twine and Summer Palette inks
No need to guess which holiday Cyndi went with! I love her extra details of copic marker coloring, stickles on the hat and Crystal Clear Glaze on the Margarita glass.

I was inspired by a card my downline, Marisa Alveraz made when the last catalog first came out. I love how she stamped Mini Blooms in the new Fiesta color scheme on Kraft cardstock. I took that look and built on it for my own Cinco De Mayo themed card.
