Week 219: SPOOKY

It's time for an October themed cue word!  Many people celebrate Halloween at the end of this month, so we thought we'd go with a spooky theme and see where it takes you!

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!)

Serendipity Stamps is returning as our wonderful sponsor and this week's winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to the online store!
