This month’s theme and monthly prize

Anything Goes  + a stamp

Apr 2 – May 6

Last week of our month long Anything Goes theme here at the heARTful stamping Challenge.  It’s been a super hectic month for me with taxes, a trip to Germany, inlaw visit and now prepping for my latest 10 card workshop class this upcoming week.  Oh, and I’ve been mailing out the new CTMH Seasonal Expressions catalog so that is also extra on top of working everyday 🙂

Normally throughout the month I have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc.  There are weekly Top 3 winners and a random winner from all of the participants receives the monthly prize drawing.  This month is a C R A Z Y month for me with taxes due, inlaws visiting and a Spring Break trip to Germany to visit my sister.  

I was able to pick up an extra February CTMH’s Stamp of the Month which I think is perfect for Easter – it’s called Easter Bunny.  ooohhh!  Doing the happy dance here!  I have one more set for April.

This Week’s Inspiration

I’ll be leaving up Cyndi and Debi’s inspiration pieces from last week because they are wonderful and you may have missed them!  But here are two fun but delightful CAS ideas from CTMH designers for stamp sets retiring TODAY!

Dreamin’ Big stamp set

Some Kinda Wonderful

*****

Cyndi sent me a great CAS (clean and simple) card using CTMH’s Dreamin’ Big stamp set.  It’s hard to believe that the Seasonal Expression 1 catalog retires at the end of the month and you won’t be able to get this great stamp set after that.  There is also a fun and colorful paper pack to match, also called Dreamin’ Big and it may be my favorite of the group.  Well, one of my favorites!  I think this would be perfect for sending to a teen who was going through a rough spot, don’t you?!

Debi Brile, from That Might Look Good on a Card,  is back this week with a wonderful fun fold card featuring CTMH’s Sugar Rush paper packet.  Wouldn’t you LOVE getting this for your birthday?Did you know this paper is ALSO retiring this month?  Yikes!  The really neat thing about CTMH’s paper packs is that they are 12 x 12 and are double sided.  Each packet also includes one sheet of journaling cards that were intended for scrapbooking but are also fantastic for cardmaking!

Look at all of these great layers!  And then it magically opens up to this…
