Something with your Favorite Stamp -CHALLENGE

Happy Friday All!!!

What a terrific turnout we had last week!! Thanks to all of you who entered the challenge and thanks to Wendy from Digital Delights for donating a fabulous prize!!! Also, congrats to our first Top 5 Stamp Something Favorite Stampers!!!

September at Stamp Something is "Favorites Month!" All month long, the challenges are about favorites and the team will be choosing the Stamp Something top 5 Favorite Stampers each week.

This week we'd like to see you use your FAVORITE STAMP OR STAMP SET and as and added bonus try to also use some punches or die cutting tools on your project as well. We know this one will be harder than it seems, how can you pick just one favorite stamp?? So good luck with this one!!

In addition to naming our top 5 favorite stampers, we also have a prize for our random winner!!! Our sponsor this week is Christian Paper Crafts and Cindy Coutts. Cindy is generously donating one set of Label Nestabilities, which the random winner can choose herself. Pretty great huh! Cindy has also joined us this week as a guest designer so be sure to check out her card along with the DT cards in the post below.

If you've never heard of Christian Paper Crafts, they are a community for passionate Christian crafters. They have a magazine, blog, forum, gallery, design team, and a section dedicated to Christian faith topics.

Right now CPC has some special events going on, including a membership drive until tomorrow at midnight and whoever refers the most people will win a prize of a newly released stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs. Next week they will have a posting challenge and the member who makes the highest amount of posts will win a newly released stamp set from ODBD. Since the contest is a posting contest, another surprise is a prize with a twist on it that has something to do with the word “post” that the winner will receive as well. Sounds like a lot of fun happening over at Christian Paper Crafts!

Now, we have an optional piece to the challenge this week, which we hope many of you will help us with. My 13 year old neighbor was seriously injured in a boating accident and as a result has lost part of her arm. If you can, please make your card with Paige in mind and mail it to her at the hospital or mail it to me to hand deliver, we know this would help to brighter her day and lift her spirits during her recovery.

I have a post on my blog right HERE with all the details about mailing, the accident, and some blog candy. If you cannot mail a card at this time, helping us by just spreading the word about my card drive would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much. :)

Have fun stamping with your favorite set!!

Thanks for the post, very useful information, where you can find useful information on this topic?

Nice post. It is always good to see people expressing themselves in different ways.

Since you seem to be associated with Management, I would like to suggest you a new magazine - PEOPLE MATTERS started by an ISB Alumni, which was suggested to me by a friend and which I have found very useful.

It deals with various important aspects of management, especially those related to Leadership & People Management, which the mainstream business publications often ignore.

It's also relatively cheap. I guess its annual subscription is about Rs. 400 (US$ 8 approx) which is even less than the cost of a standard Pizza.

Their last issue had an enlightening article by Robert Kaplan (the co-founder of Balanced Scorecard method, if you remember) where he talks about how organisations can create opportunities out of current economic downturn.

I got its subscription online through their website:

If you like the magazine, kindly refer it to your friends or colleagues in the organization you work. They may be interested in subscribing to it.
