Whatever it is that you like to do, we only hope that you get a chance to create something special today!

Don’t forget that we also offer an assortment of coordinating Replenishments including cardstock, felt, buttons and ribbon.

Sketches are always a great starting point for a little cardmaking, and we have 92 weeks of sketches available as part of our ongoing Wednesday Stamp Club sketch challenge.  The first year of sketches is available here: MFTsketches1-52, and year two (to date) is available here: MFT Sketches 53-92.

Hope You Can Cling To

Today we’re here to help spread the word about Splitcoaststampers 3rd annual Hope You Can Cling To.  It is a full 31 days of awareness and challenges to support a card drive to support cancer patients and their families. It all begins today,  Monday, October 1st, and you’re all invited to play along! Please join our friends at Splitcoaststampers for as many days as you can, all throughout October and send your finished cards along to the The MD Anderson Cancer Center.  The cards are so very appreciated.  Follow along on the Master Challenge Thread which can be found HERE and find answers to the most Frequently Asked Questions HERE. Today I’ve got a sample to share for my friend Beate’s Challenge – be sure to head on over to her challenge thread for all the details.  I’ve paired the Sew Nitfy Stamp set and Die-namics with the new Steel Grey Cardstock and Ribbon.  I wrapped the spool with Stone Twine.   The small tag was created with the Die-namics Traditional Tags STAX and finished off with a Pink Lemonade Button which was threaded with our new Hemp Cord. We hope to see you over on the Hope You Can Cling To section of Splitcoaststampers!
