This month’s theme and monthly prize

Anything Goes + a stamp

Oct 1 – Oct 8

Last weekend it felt like you could still go swimming and this weekend it definitely feels like fall!  Wondering what your temperatures are like and are you ready for the switch of seasons?

Thanks for checking out this week’s Anything Goes heARTful stamping challenge.  There are weekly Top 3 winners and a random winner from all of the participants receives the monthly prize drawing.  September’s prize winner will be announced on Monday and they will receive this petite stamp set from CTMH called You Amaze Me.

The natural disasters have continued to worsen and I received an email this week that the Red Cross was also helping in Puerto Rico.  Did you know that CTMH has released a special stamp set, Stronger Together, in an effort to help raise money  – check it out here.  All proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross.

This Week’s Inspiration

Debi, from That Might Look Good on a Card, is getting a head start on her Christmas cards.  She featured the cute new stamp set from CTMH’s Holiday Expression called Little Saint Nick.  I love that strip of Red Glitter cardstock that CTMH also carries – it really adds some pop!

I had stamped most of this panel of flowers before I noticed a stray ink mark or two (okay, more than that!).  But, I couldn’t throw it away and just kept going.  The sponging on the bottom helps and I love the Scalloped Thincut dies that CTMH released in their Annual Inspirations catalog.  There is this one and an opened scallop – it’s the perfect size!

I was in a CAS mood this weekend and I quickly whipped this card together.  It was so easy to watercolor – the Tombow markers made it even easier since I could apply the ink to the tiny images and then add some water.  I am so grateful for all my blog readers.  Huge thanks!
