Amusing Challenge – Anything Goes

This week’s theme and monthly prize

This week it’s everyone’s favorite on Amusing Challenge!  Anything goes!!

Throughout the month I have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc.  Based on reader input late last year, I will be changing up the way I award my monthly prize!  We’ll still have the Top 3 winners but now every participant that plays along (and LINKS BACK to the challenge) will earn a chance to win the random drawing for my prize package at the end of the month.  Amuse Studio carries the most wonderful smaller (3.5 inches) sized doilies…I use them all the time and they seem to be on every one of my orders!  Now is your chance to win them to try them!

Design Team Inspiration

As Cyndi said to me when she sent me her design team card for the week – “what’s normal?!”   So true!!  Cyndi is getting ready for the 4th of July with her red, white and blue kitties.  I love this card and after getting to visit my daughter on Saturday and see her cat Milo, I feel especially close to this card.  This is one of my favorite Amuse Studio stamp set – Nine Lives.

My hat goes off to all of the full time teachers out there!  I am a substitute teacher and while I keep busy, I really felt the full impact these past two months when I was subbing full time.  I absolutely LOVED the kids but it did leave me with little time to stamp.  I need some QUICK thank you cards and these came together literally in less than 5 minutes.  Which was a good thing since I had to run out the door!  I used a great sentiment for kids of all ages – it is from Be Yourself in Amuse Studio’s June Collection.  If you wanted to a “step up” it would be super easy to add some color with pencils, watercolor washes or any of your favorite coloring medium.

I am lucky that A Muse Studio has great designers so it was easy to CASE a card from last month’s collection.  Be Wild is still available while supplies last and if you like dream catchers (and other nature images) – it’s the perfect set for you!  This is another CAS card because I am just wrapping up:  high school graduation, hubby’s bday, father’s day last weekend, inlaws visiting, end of school activities, last minute job application – midnight deadline and make it with 10 minute to spare, plus an 8 1/2 hour round trip to visit daughter at college for 3 hours on Sat….  oh, that must be the “normal” Cyndi was talking about in her card above!!
