This month’s theme and monthly prize

Anything Goes + a stamp

Aug 27 – Sep 3

I can hardly believe that it’s already the LAST week of August.  Sigh…BIG sigh…  That means it is officially an Anything Goes heARTful stamping challenge!    Normally throughout the month I have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc.  There are weekly Top 3 winners and a random winner from all of the participants receives the monthly prize drawing.  This month’s prize winner will receive this package of CTMH grey gems from me.

This Week’s Inspiration

Debi is back this month as a Guest Designer for me – she blogs at That Might Look Good on a Card.  I’m blessed that Debi finds (or makes!!) the time to inspire you and I with her work each month.  When she rattled off all that she did this week, well, I was amazed.  Debi also reminded me that this is the last week to get the Little Dreamer paper pack (and everything else in the CTMH Seasonal Expressions 2 catty).  The Some Kinda Wonderful stamp set is in the Going Soon section as well.

I’m really excited to share a sneak peek of Close To My Heart’s National Stamp Month celebration taking place in September!  These 2 and 3 step flowers are from a special release set called From the Heart.  I hope you’ll continue to follow my blog to stay tuned and see more of this AMAZING stamp set promotion…

This week the teachers were busy setting up classrooms and preparing for the arrival of our new little ones.  Monday will be the First Day of school for both my Kindergarten class, as well as my own two children now in college.  I can hardly believe that Stephanie is starting her senior year and George Henry is beginning his Sophomore year.  wow!!  It seemed fitting to use CTMH’s Stamp of the Month, School Year.  I had an idea that I wanted to combine it with this bear from CTMH’s Jack cardmaking stamp set – wasn’t sure how it would turn out but I kinda like it!  Remember, after August 31st neither of these sets will be available…
