Week 65: CRISP

Here in the U.S., autumn seems to be here to stay and, with it, certain words come to mind!  One of them is CRISP!  Interpret it however you'd like to because you'll soon see that the design team came up with many creative twists to this one!

We have a wonderful sponsor returning this week!

Be sure and go take a look at their fantastic stamps, dies and more in the online store because our winner this week will receive a £15 Gift Certificate!

Also, there is a new release coming up, so be sure and visit their blog to keep up on the latest happenings!

Now let's take a look at how our guest designer and design team members interpreted this week's cue word!
