This month’s theme and monthly prize

Anything Goes + a stamp

Oct 22 – Oct 29

This is my second post for today.  I’m also a guest blogger this week for Coffee and a Card with Deb and Celeste.  You can find that post here.

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.  I bought some extra burlap ribbon for my fall wreath making class and I think you will love it!

This Week’s Inspiration

How early do you start your Christmas cards?  I normally don’t start too early (I consider Oct early!) but because I am prepping for a workshop, I’ve been trying out ideas to come up with the final 5.  I just love the look of layer pieces overlapping stamped images and I finally gave it a try.  I have finally lost my fear of my Cricut machines so I am finally getting use out of my CTMH Cricut bundles.  woohoo!!  I was tickled how beautifully this Gold Foiled paper from CTMH cut.  It comes in Silver too!

CTMH has been super generous this month!  They are in the midst of their Share  A Smile campaign featuring this Punny Pals stamp set.  $7 from the sale of each set is donated to Operation Smile and this month, CTMH is matching all proceeds.  On top of that, CTMH created a special stamp set called Stronger Together – ALL proceeds from the sale of that stamp set are being donated to the Red Cross.  It’s a great month to pick up some fabulous sets – I call that a win-win!  I had so much fun watercoloring these little guys, aren’t they sweet?
