This month’s theme and monthly prize

Anything Goes + a stamp

Jan 14 –  21

Wow!  We are blowing through January – I can’t believe we are already in the middle of the month!  Welcome to this week’s Anything Goes heARTful stamping challenge! 

If this is your first visit here, there are normally weekly Top 3 winners and a random winner from all of the participants receives the monthly prize drawing.  

This Week’s Inspiration

Cyndi is back with another sweet Valentine themed card using CTMH’s Punny Pals stamp set.  I love the colors here – the black is so striking with the pinks and reds.  Punny Pals is this year’s Operation Smile stamp set – it’s where Close To My Heart donates $7 for each stamp set sold.  It’s a great cause and a super cute stamp!

I needed to make a few thank you cards for Christmas gifts.  I was delighted that I could use two holiday sets to make decent cards without them seeming that they should have been Christmas cards!  I used some leftover papers from CTMH’s Silver and Gold and Beary Christmas paper packages – they are such fun prints!  I also used CTMH’s two Workshop Your Way kit stamp sets:  Merriest Wishes and Joyful Tidings.  Although all of these items are now retired – you can still find them in the Going Soon section.  The “thanks” sentiment is a great sized font and is from CTMH’s new stamp set called Chelsea Gardens and you can find it in their new Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog.

  1. What a fun little piggy and such a pretty valentine with all those fancy layers and bling!! Love your wintery TY cards. Had to chuckle abt the struggle to make them seasonal without them seeming like they “should have been” Christmas cards!! hehehehe…. You did a fabulous job. They are beautiful.
    Thank you for another fun challenge!!!
