Amusing Challenge – Anything Goes

eeck!!  Christmas is almost here!  Are you ready?  I am NOT!   This week’s Amusing Challenge is Anything Goes!  In fact, we’ll stick with “anything goes” for the next two weeks since this is such an unpredictable time of year.  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.   This will be the last month of running the prize drawing like this – based on reader/participant feedback, the census was to have a prize winner drawing from all of the participants instead.  So, starting in January we’ll give it a try.   In the meantime, December’s lucky winner will receive a bag of Amuse Studio’s 4 mm sequins – in a color of their choice!


Cyndi just ordered the new Gift Tag Trio die set from Amuse Studio’s November Collection – they are still available while supplies last!  Love these cute, sparkly tags…I even spot one of amuse studio’s snowflake sequins on some of them!  The funny thing is, Cyndi said her kitty “photobombed” the picture…and I have my daughter’s kitten Milo “helping” me type up this post!

Fellow amuse studio consultant Chelsea C shared a tutorial with me recently that inspired this hanging ornament.  The santa I used is a retired Amuse Studio stamp set but all other supplies are current product!  This was pretty easy to make – if you were signed up for my 12 Days of Christmas tutorials you also have the directions to make these…

I just became a member of the Paper Crafting Support Group design team on Facebook and this was my card for this week’s sketch challenge.  Lots and lots of fun Amuse Studio product on this card!  I love how I combined the sentiment from Hello Deer with the images from Santa Was Here – both Amuse Studio stamp sets.
