Week 327: CLOUDY

Winter days can sometimes be a bit gray and dreary, but this week's cue word may bring out the sunshine!

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!)

Inlinkz Link Party


  1. Hi, how does your new linky work. It wants me to add my email and set up a password. What is this for. Do I have to log in each time I enter. Why do I have to set up a password. Hugz

    1. I am not sure why they are having you create a password now. It says it is so they can verify your email. I'm guessing you won't have to log in again once you have used your email once. Thanks for your patience as we merge into the new InLinkz format!

    2. Hello again! I contacted the InLinkz support. Once you set up your email/password, you should not have to do so again.

  2. Love all the different takes on the challenge. Beautiful cards!

  3. great Cards for the cloudy cue word. thanks for inviting me to be GD for this week.
    Christine :)
