CASE Study Challenge #143

Boy, how the time flies! It's another bittersweet moment, when we have to say good-bye to another fantastic Muse. Maile has been such an inspiration and we're glad you've been having just as much fun this month, as we have!
Let's do it one more time, shall we? Take a look at the inspiration card below, and then strut your stuff! *wink*


 -------------------------------------------------------------------
Here's what our fabulous Design Team came up with:

Maile Belles - May Muse



Erin Schulte - May Guest Designer



Clare Buswell
(skipping this week)

Debby Hughes



Iwona Palamountain (Chupa)



Jean Martin



Jeanne Jachna



Maureen Plut



Teneale Williams


-------------------------------------------------------------------
Now all you have to do is play with us!
Here are the deets:
1. Create a paper crafting project (card, layout, off-the-page item), based on provided inspiration (being a featured creation, made by our Muse).
2. Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code CSC143), and link it here with the inlinkz widget below. Please provide a direct link to your post, not an entire blog.
3. A new challenge is being posted every Thursday at 12.01 AM EST, and you've got until midnight on Tuesday to submit your entry.
4. You may enter as many times as you like, but you're asked to provide a newly designed project.
5. We will choose the authors of four most impressive creations, who will be awarded the Winner and Top 3 awards. In addition, there might be a person chosen randomly from the list of players, who will receive the prize provided by the sponsor - if there is one.
We will announce the winners on Wednesday.
6. If you'd like to be considered for our next month-long Guest Designer, put "GD" next to your name when linking up your project (only valid on every second challenge of the month).
7. Above all, have fun - and be inspired!

Happy creating!

CASE Study Challenge #142

Before we get to the crux of matter, I thought I'd update you on our DT search! My apologies for the silence here on the blog - I do keep on top of the updates on our Facebook page, but it would be unfair to those without FB accounts, to be left out on this.
It was an incredibly tough choice, and we chose three contestants to join us permanently, starting from our first June challenge. We're not going to reveal the names of the lucky ladies until then, but we will be posting hints on the FB page, which may help you guess who they are :)
Go ahead and join us there, if you want to be a part of the fun! 

That being said, we're so enjoying this month! So many awesome entries week by week, makes us want to keep Maile for longer :)
It's time we rolled in with another challenge, and we hope you'll love the inspiration just as much!!

Winners

Thanks so much for another magnificent month!! How cool to see so many of you sharing your artwork with us!
......................................................................................... 

Our winner for CSC140 is Jenny from My Paper Epiphany!!




I love the fresh, clean look of this card, with the white accents that seem to sparkle against kraft, the totally swoon-worthy subtle stamped background, and the added wow factor that the black ribbon bow gives. Such a delightful piece of art!
.........................................................................................

Our Top 3 winners are:


Amy @ White House Stamping
Meighan @ Stampin' with Meighan
Rochelle @  Two Tears in my Bucket
......................................................................................... 

Congratulations, everyone! Winners, feel free to grab your badges from the menu link under the blog header.

Thank you so much for the magnificent response to our Guest Designer call! I will be contacting the person to join us in June shortly, and to everyone else who wasn't successful this time around - please DO try again next month! We will hold another 'casting' on our June 13th challenge :)

I also wanted to let you know, that the winners of our DT search challenge will be contacted very soon as well. The recent birth of my baby threw me off the track, and I apologize for the delay.
