Welcome to the first Amusing Challenge for 2014…this week’s theme is “new beginnings” and there can be a lot of interpretations to that! Throughout the month I’ll 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. January’s end of the month winner will receive this stamp set, All My Heart from A Muse Studio.
Juliet went with a bright and fun sized ATC card sporting a tiny calendar and featuring the A Muse Studio swallow die set.

Cyndi used several stamp sets from A Muse Studio (some are limited editions): Eat Cake, Essential Sentiments, and Dwell in the Possibilites. Love the embossed Celebrate in the background – this is a great New Year’s card!
I didn’t get all of my Christmas cards out in a timely manner…does that ever happen to you? They are made but not all addressed. Part of my excuse is that I write a full message in each one. I’m thinking this may make a nice change – I love that little stem and budding leaf from the set Thankful for You from A Muse Studio. My cardstock, including the Bristol watercolor paper, is also from A Muse Studio. I love this Tall Alphabet die set (yup, it’s about a half inch tall!) and a new larger version that is now available in the A Muse Studio Valentine supplement. I used just the “welcome” from the Essential Sentiment sentiment saying “welcome, baby”. I watercolored my die cuts and image with Tombow markers.
It’s super easy to play along with Amusing Challenges, and just as a reminder: 2 entry limit and no digis please!
