This month’s theme and monthly prize
Animals + a stamp
May 14 – 21
Today ushers in a brand new challenge here on the heARTful stamping challenge – this week’s theme is animals. 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.
It seemed fitting with today being Mother’s Day to feature the Hello Lovely Compliments pack from CTMH. These “stickers” are great for both cardmaking and scrapbooking! The gold words, hearts and arrows in the lower left corner are raised so they really are quite lovely.
This Week’s Inspiration
Cyndi was at a scrapbooking crop last weekend and so she worked with “limited supplies”. That might be a great future challenge because I really love what she come up with! Here is Nature’s Wish from CTMH and I find the focal image so striking. It’s a mix of great masculine and outdoorsy images as well as useful sentiments.

I continued to make a few more thank you cards for some of my Kindergarten students. CTMH’s new Jack stamp set for cardmaking is so adorable – he is getting rave reviews and I love all the little “accessory” stamps included in the set. This cheerful cardstock is no longer available – it was in CTMH’s Seasonal Expressions 1 catty and so I am quickly finding out as a new demo, if you want something, order it! The “thank you” frame is from CTMH’s Hello Lovely stamp set and is in the Going Soon category so it’s while supplies last.
