Week 251: MEDICINE


It's time for a new cue word and with some of winter's sick bugs hanging on in some places despite spring's arrival, a few get well wishes in the gallery may just be what the doctor ordered!

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 their online store!  From today through Sunday, June 4, Serendipity is offering a flash sale on the Sick Puppy stamp set with 20% off!  Be sure and claim this adorable set for yourself!

Let's see what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!

  1. Just placed my card. Hope you like it. Had to cover up an mistake with chocolate finger print, so I covered it up with 3 pearls.
