Sneaky peek

My gosh! I'm so sorry for the terrible delay with posting the sneak peek this month... I could say that my recent moving threw me off balance, but there's really no excuse for it... as late as it is, with the reveal tomorrow, I thought you could still use a hint!!



It shouldn't be a hard one... am I right? :)

And the winners are...

I thought that the complex, dainty inspiration card from Karola, would leave you scratching your heads, but boy was it a good week! You rocked it, and I must say that I had a very hard choice narrowing down my favourites to four... so once again, I'd like to thank you for sharing your talent with us! We're smitten! :)

Our winner for CSC76 is Magda(i)Lena from Galeria Subiektywna!!





Shabby chic at its best, this card just stole my heart. Not only it's fabulously feminine and just dreamy, with its soft colours and vintage touches, it also has a great dimension to it - make sure you click on the link above to see the rest of the photos of this amazing creation.

Our Top 3 winners are:



Christyne @ Stampin' With Sugar
Ruby @ Ruby 2 Shoes
Jeanne @ A Kept Life

Congratulations!

CASE Study Challenge #76

Woo hoo! It's welcome-a-new-Muse day today!! It's always an exciting time, to introduce you to another talented artist, to help you expand the horizons by studying her art, and we're looking forward to seeing where this month takes you.

Ladies and gentlebugs, please help me welcome Karola Witczak!



My name is Karola Witczak. I am an absolutely addicted scrapbooking Mommy to Rose (7), wife to Martin, friend of our furry friends - Miki (the cat), Chili (the dog) and Julian (the bunny). We live in the west part of Poland/Europe. I'm a little crazy woman, who is dedicated to my scrapbooking passion almost every day, for a 7 years now. I am constantly trying to develop my passion - in different ways and stepping on different paths - from digital scrapbooking 6 years ago, to an intensive exploration of the intricacies of traditional scrapbooking, constant learning and teaching others as a scrapbooking instructor. Currently I am working as a freelance designer for a large group of scrapbooking companies, shops, projects, challenge blogs, sometimes I lead the workshops and sometimes I design products for scrapbooking - all of these activities gives me lots of joy and satisfaction. I am coffe and books lover, I'm a geek about thrillers and crime stores in the books and films. I'm also a rock girl, but I love jazz and bossanova too, I love live music, musicals, and I am dependent on buying jeans and sneakers.

You can find Karola at her blog, Karola Kraftuje.
We're thrilled to have her with us! Here's today's beautiful inspiration...
