Week 344: SUMMER

Summer's coming!  We thought we'd prepare a little in the gallery this week!  The season is filled with so many different things and we're guessing the gallery will be too!

**Please note:  As we head into summer, challenges will now be two weeks long to give everyone a little extra time to join in the fun!

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!)

STAMPlorations is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering this challenge's winner $25 off their next online order!  Be sure and check out their Typografia Sale as well as their Things with Wings Sale!  Both end May 31st.

Then, be sure and check out their Flower Power sale which begins TODAY!

Remember, you can use code CASOLOGY to take 20% off all products in the store, even those already 15% off!  What are you waiting for?!
