a muse studio

This card from Cyndi is perfect for my ongoing Amusing Challenge featuring birds.  This is a great set from a•muse studio because it’s technically for Valentine’s Day but it’s perfect year round.

December’s grand prize winner is Carol – Happy Expressions!  Please email me your mailing address and I’ll get your package in the mail.  🙂

and…this week’s winners’ list:

Amusing Challenges – Special Folds

Wow, already another week of Amusing Challenges!  I hope you will find some time to play along with our Special Folds challenge this week…remember, you have all week to enter.  🙂  How it works is there is a Weekly Winner and at the end of the month, I have a drawing from those 4-5 individuals.  This month’s random prize winner will receive one of my favorite a•muse studio Christmas stamp sets!

If you click on these photos they will enlarge.

First up is Juliet’s center-step card featuring Nordic Noel.  Did you know it’s on sale this month for 10% off?  So many great images in that set and I love the gold burnishing she did here for an elegant look to what could be a more rustic set.

I’ve always loved easel cards but really haven’t made one in a couple of years.  Yikes!  I fixed that with this new Valentine stamp from a•muse studio called All For Love.  {I should have catalogs shortly and it goes live on 1 Dec.}  I enjoyed coloring with my Copics and thought this sentiment from Hand Scripted went perfectly.
