This week’s theme and monthly prize
If you have been coming here for a while, you may be thinking, “what in the world?” It’s not the last week of the month – it’s the first! Yes and ALL this month we’ll be having an Anything Goes Amusing Challenge. You may have heard that Amuse Studio is closing their doors on Nov 27 … I will be with them until the bittersweet end. All orders this month will receive Happy Mail from me as my thanks. On 1 Dec I’ll be joining Close to My Heart! I will need a new challenge name so I’m announcing a contest to help me think of a new one. Enter your ideas in the comments below and the winning idea (or even one randomly picked winner!) will get a brand new Amuse Studio stamp set from me! This contest will run the month of November.
Please share any stamped project you are working on this week – please no digital images. There are weekly Top 3 winners and a random winner from all of the participants receives the monthly prize drawing. October’s winner will receive this featured stamp set from Amuse Studio, Fight Like a Girl, from me for free. The winner will be announced tomorrow.
This Week’s Inspiration
Cyndi made a beautiful fall card with Amuse Studio’s new stamp set, Second Springtime. I love how she layered the images and colored them in with various Copic markers. Her sentiment really pops and Cyndi told me she covered it with Crystal Glaze after she was done coloring it.

I love how happy and cheerful this card turned out! No wonder Amuse Studio named this new Santa stamp set: Be Light. I must admit I first thought this was a balloon since that’s how they showed it in the September Collection but then my friend Juliet set me straight. I guess it can be both an ornament or a balloon! tee hee. He was super easy to color and I really like how the embossed sentiments on two different cardstocks look. I think one of the things I will miss most about Amuse Studio is their incredible dies. This Scalloped border die has seen a LOT of use in my house and will continue to do so.
