Week 263: BUD


It's time for a new cue word and this week's may cause your mind to blossom with ideas!

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!)

Kitty Bee Designs is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering this week's winner 1 (non-colored) digital image from the online store!

Let's take a look at what the design team & our guest designer has created for inspiration!
