CASE Study Challenge #68

Welcome December!! My, where did this time go??!
We're starting off in a truly festive style, in this most beautiful time of the year... this is a humongous post and full of exciting stuff, so sit back and relax, as we give you some top-shelf inspiration, and introduce a couple of new faces to the Team!!

First of all, it's my utter pleasure, to welcome a new member to our fabulous group... the one and only Maureen Plut!!
Moe has been a regular at CASE Study, and with her out-of-this-world artwork, we thought it would be only fitting, to have her with us permanently :)

Here's a few words from Moe...

I'm a St. Patrick's Day baby with a passion for card making. When I'm not creating, I'm a Grade 2 teacher, new wife to Tony (4 years) and a proud mom to Jake, my 23 year old, who is off at university completing his Engineering degree. AND {fingers crossed} I will be moving into a brand new home this week that my husband and I started building in April.

You can see more of Moe, at her blog: Buttons and Bling. Welcome to the Team, girlie!!

We also get to introduce a new Muse in our ranks, as you know... and boy, are we all up for a treat!! I must admit that I saved this amazing lady for a special occasion, haha!
Ladies and gents, let's put your hands together for the amazingly talented Amy Sheffer!!

A little bit about Amy:

HI everyone! What an honor to be this month's guest muse! Thank you to Chupa and the DT for this fabulous opportunity! I live in Northern Virginia at the far outskirts of Washington, DC, with my husband (just celebrated our 18th anniversary last month) and our three awesome children. I've dabbled in various artsy and crafty pursuits pretty much my whole life. When I was introduced to stamping and cardmaking several years back, it was a perfect fit and I haven't stopped since. In addition to papercrafting, I enjoy photography, playing the piano, and, lately, DIY home decorating. I'm super excited to be here this month and am looking forward to seeing all of your challenge creations!

You can find Amy at her blog, Pickled Paper Designs. We're thrilled to have her!!

Here's the first, fabulous piece of inspiration, from our December Muse... Enjoy!

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 CSC68), 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 authors of the 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. Above all, have fun - and be inspired!

Happy creating!
The CASE Study Design Team
