Week 212: FUN

It's time for a new cue word!  Who doesn't like a little good hearted fun?!  Let's fill the gallery with it this week!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:

  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

Waffle Flower is returning as our wonderful sponsor and this week's winner will receive a stamp set of their choice from the online store, including those in the upcoming new release!

Be sure and check out the sneak peeks for the September new release on the blog, including this one...
