This month’s theme and monthly prize
Anything Goes + a stamp
Nov 12 – Nov 19
Welcome to this week’s Anything Goes heARTful stamping challenge. Brrrr…we’ve had quite a cold spell here in Northern Virginia and I saw it was pretty wide spread. My husband and I are both veterans (he retired with 20 years and I got out after 7 1/2 when we got married) so we have also been enjoying a marathon of military movies this weekend. Two good reasons to stay inside and craft!!
If this is your first visit here, there are weekly Top 3 winners and a random winner from all of the participants receives the monthly prize drawing. November’s prize winner will receive these CTMH Gold Glitter Gems which are perfect for holiday crafting!
This Week’s Inspiration
Cyndi really has a knack for creating little scenes and combining different stamp sets. I just love how Cyndi used the feather from CTMH’s September Stamp of the Month – Feel So Blessed, to create a frame. The sentiment is from there as well. The kitten is from CTMH’s Operation Smile stamp set called Punny Pals. Cyndi did a lot of fussy cutting with scissors and an exacto knife but it was worth it, I think!
CTMH supplies: Punny Pals stamp set, Feel So Blessed September STOM
I know, I know! There are a million ornament stamp sets out there and you probably already have a few (I do!). But, I just had to add the new Silver and Gold cardmaking stamp set from CTMH to my inventory. I like the ornaments but I LOVE the sentiments’ fonts and the two border stamp sets. I know I will get a lot of use from these. Those little dots and stripes are perfect for adding a border strip to “finish” off seams, and you can customize them to what ever color you need. Buffalo Plaid is “in” right now and this is one of the papers in CTMH’s Beary Christmas paper packs. The other piece is from their Silver and Gold paper collection which is so eye catching and can be used all year round (check out this sample here of what I mean!). I also am loving the silver and gold foiled papers CTMH has released in their Holiday Expressions catalog.
