Calendar Stamp Sets

We have made it to the first Friday.  I am in NYC today and looking forward to a weekend in the city--this first weekend of the year is always a slow one here in the city so it should be enjoyable.
I want to share some great stamp sets that will come in handy as you track your year.

This set is from PINK BY DESIGN and is called It's a Date--I used this on the card from Tuesday.  If you have not tried PBD stamps you need to--I love them and bought many sets before I was on the design team--they stamp great from the moment you open the package.
This set is a CTMH stamp of the month set from last November and this weeks give away--each month has its own stamp and can be easily cut out or you can use the ticket cut from the Art Philosophy Cartridge and get a very cool look for your layouts and cards.
This CTMH set is called Month by Month (C1425) and is available in the current idea book and can be found on line by clicking my store link to the right--while you are there check out another set called Save the Date.  That set has 80 stamps and comes in English, French, and Spanish!
This set I love--it is an older set from CTMH and is called Happy Holidays (D1431) Each holiday has a fun image and there are curved sentiments that go to each holiday.  You can find this set on ebay or ask you CTMH rep to see if they can get a hold of one for you.
This Festivities (D1321) set is also from CTMH.  I found this on on line from another rep.  I had never seen this one and loved the line drawings--I have a project next week to share using this set, my day timer, and light brown ink--you can make stamping part of every aspect of life if you try hard enough. LOL
CTMH also did a long term calendar set called Moments in Time (D1339) this one has all the months borders, symbols as well as the years from 2000-2015 so you can actually go back in time and use this stamp over and over and over. This one is not to old and your rep might be able to get their hands on this one pretty quick--this one you will get a lot of use out of.
This set is an out of the box way of tracking the date--each stamp has a different shape and way of displaying the date.  CTMH did it again with this On this Day (D1468) It is not in the current idea book but was in the last one so there might still be a few floating around.  I use this one a lot!!
Last but not least---
January's stamp of the month is another great way to track the date--with a purchase of $50 you can get this set for $5 or alone it is $17.95

This set is ONLY available this month!  It has so many uses and can not wait to add this set to my collection. 

Remember to leave those comments for your chance to win.  There will be a weekly give away so spread the word and I am giving fair warning--Feb is going to be a good month for a number of you all--the blog candy is good!!!!
Have a great weekend and we will see you back next week!
Make it a great one-
