I missed “Christmas in July” but how about a whirl at Christmas in August this week on our Amusing Challenges ?? 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. August’s prize winner will receive 5 Cherry and 5 Petite Cherry sheets of A Muse Studio cardstock from me!
So happy that Juliet was able to join us this week – she is dedicated to getting her Christmas cards done early so I knew this was a great challenge for her. Juliet used the A Muse Studio set, Let’s Get Merry – that little guy is so cute! Even better, this stamp set is just one of the sets on SALE during A Muse Studio’s Every Day is a Holiday Sale.
Cyndi had neck surgery last week and although she’s recovering, she still managed to send in a card for this week’s Amusing Challenge. Cyndi – wishing you a speedy and complete recovery!! Cyndi used the A Muse Studio stamp set, Hark this week. It too is on sale this month – 40% off for the Every Day is a Holiday Sale. As always, her’s is full of sparkle and shine – so beautiful!
My card is super CAS and also features Hark from A Muse Studio. Some Cherry baker’s twine and Cherry cardstock embossed in white really make the card pop. If you like to mail flat cards, this one is perfect because this is the thinner cording that A Muse Studio carries. I am just returning from two weeks of vacation – traveling first to Wisconsin to visit my folks (and sister in Upper Michigan) and then on to California to visit my inlaws. It was a nice trip but I am super behind and now have to focus on my daughter leaving for college in less than 2 weeks…oh, and I tucked a card class in there too!
To see more about the new A Muse Studio promotion – Every DAY is a Holiday! – just click on those words. These stamps are from a previous holiday catalog and because these items are marked, “while supplies last”, they will not appear in the new A Muse Studio holiday catalog coming out 1 September.
