Whew! May went by in a rush!

Our son graduated from High School and is ready for his new journey this Fall at WyoTech in Laramie, Wyoming.  What a blessing he has been in our lives and we look forward to sharing all of what his future holds.  Congratulations son!

June is already here, and with it so many exciting specials with CTMH!  I must admit, I'm a bit excited about a couple of other things in June as well...Country Jam Colorado is in 17 days!  Camping for 6 days and 5 nights, listening to GREAT music and sharing memories (new and old) with friends and family.  Then off to CTMH convention at Disney World for a week!  Woot-Woot!  Can't wait to get back and share the new Idea Book with all of you!  

Here's what's happening in June with CTMH (note that if you participate in #3 and #4, your purchases support donations to worthy causes):
1.  It's a Banner Month!
2.  June Stamp of the Month
3.  Military Stamp Sets: Get Patriotic...Stamp Style!
4.  "Thank You" Continues to Support Oklahoma

1.  It's a Banner Month!:  In June, Receive a free My Creations® mini banner! Make it a “banner” day by placing a $25 order that includes a stamp set* to receive your free mini banner. The mini banner includes 10 chipboard pennants in 4 different shapes with 9 jump rings for hanging. Use the mini banner as a decoration for your parties and get-togethers this summer for many “banner” days!
*qualifying stamp sets are sets that have a SKU number that begins with A, B, C, D or E.  M and K stamps are not included.  
If you are shopping on my website and place an order of $25 or more (in which an A, B, C, D or E stamp set is included) this banner will automatically be added to your order. 

Before running straight to my website to take advantage of this special, keep reading. There are a few more you'll want to add!

2.  June Stamp of the Month:  I love this Summery stamp set and it's perfect for getting creative.  It's only $5 ($17.95 value) with a $50 purchase. And, if you are already taking part in the "Banner Month" special above, you are half way there!  But, never fear...check out #3 and #4 below and they will help you easily get to that $50 mark (AND the money you spend on them will also be donated to some worth charities!). If you are ordering on my website, and spend the $50 (before shipping and tax), you'll be prompted to add this set before you check out for only $5.

JUNE STAMP OF THE MONTH:  A Flowering Bunch (carrier sheet actual size is 6" x 6")
3.  Military Stamp Sets:  Let’s Get Patriotic—Stamp Style! 

Celebrate military service and promote patriotism with our new patriotic stamp sets—available only from June 1 to July 31, 2013Three dollars from each B-size My Acrylix® Courage stamp set and $5 from each D-size My Acrylix® Home of the Brave stamp set will be donated to the USO, the leading, most recognized military-support and services organization in the country.Show your support with your own patriotic stamp set! 

With Flag Day, Independence Day, and more right around the corner, now is the perfect time to celebrate military service and promote patriotism with these three new patriotic stamp sets.

Order them easily on my website with the following numbers (left to right): Home of the Brave (D1576), Strong and Free (Canada set, D1575) and Courage (B1437). 

4.  "Thank You" Continues to Support Oklahoma: If last week's tornadoes in Oklahoma weren't enough devastation, there have been more in the last couple of days.  What? Crazy old Mother Nature!  My prayers are going out to all of the people of Oklahoma and their families. My parents and sister and her husband live in Oklahoma, so I've been watching the news and checking on them to make sure they are safe.

Close To My Heart has created a way to help! They are donating all profits from the sale of this brand, new stamp to the Red Cross Efforts toward the Oklahoma tornadoes through June 30.

This stamp is just $2.95, and you can easily order it here.  I love that price point because it allows you to order one for yourself and extra for your friends.  All the while knowing that you are helping the people in this storm-torn area. 

So you see, as great as the National Scrapbooking Month specials were in May, CTMH made sure that June didn't come along and pale in comparison!  I love being  part of a company that cares so much for others!

What's the moral of this post today? Spend $50 (including one A-E stamp set), get the FREE My Creations Banner ($5.95 value), get the June Stamp of the Month for $5 ($17.95 value), add a Patriotic Stamp set or two to your order as well as the Thank You for Oklahoma (both of which can count toward your $50) and you will enjoy doing the following:
  • Helping our troops with the donations made from your Patriotic stamp set purchases
  • Helping Oklahoma with your Thank You purchase
  • Getting over $73.90 in products for only $55
Happy creating and have a great June! I plan to!
