Last Chance to Live Beautifully 

Don’t put off until tomorrow which you should do today!  

Ordering the Live Beautifully papers, stamp set and cut above kit should move to the top of your To Do List today, because tomorrow they will be gone.  That’s right, it’s the very last day of the month and our Live Beautifully Special is going to come to an end.

I have so enjoyed the elegance of these papers and am ashamed to say that I have not inked up my stamp set nearly enough this month.  The sentiments are among my favorites.

This is also the last chance to order the May Stamp of the Month: Live, Laugh, Love.  So hop on over to my webpage and add both to your cart – while you’re there you might think about adding some Gold Glitter paper and gold gems to your cart because they both coordinate with these lovely papers.

Thanks for stopping by…I hope you’ll leave me a comment and make a date to come back tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a brand new stamp of the month along with some other specials.

The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog:

I have several anniversary cards that I need to prepare for my stash and I thought this bold LOVE stamp was the perfect choice to reach for.  I embossed it in Princess Gold Embossing Powder and then mounted it on a piece of Gold Glitter Paper.  The B&T papers are from the exclusive Live Beautifully paper packet which is only available during the month of May.

Smile – A Special Color Dare

The featured colors for this challenge are:  New England Ivy, Eggplant, Pixie, Lemon, Sea Glass, Juniper, Whisper, White Daisy and Black.

I chose several of the B&T papers from the Live Beautifully Paper Packet and layered them in strips.  I then reached for the special stamp set designed for this campaign and embossed the word smile in gold.

There are no limits to the number of entries into the Live Beautifully Special Challenge, however you will also want to participate in each of our weekly challenges as well to be eligible for a special prize in a random draw.  A package of Close to My Heart Glitter Paper.
