Winners!!!

Hello, folks! I hope you're having a great week so far!
I have to apologize for the lack of comments on my side, I'm down with an awful cold and I must admit that I'd much rather rest now, than sit by the computer... ugh!

Our winner for CSC99 is Dorel from her Flickr Photostream!!





I'm smitten with how Dorel matched the large and small floral designs, for the warm and inviting homespun look. This card looks like something we're likely to find on an antique piece of earthenware. Gorgeous!!

Our Top 3 winners are:



Wanda @ Cullen-ary Creations
LeAnne @ Wee Inklings
Kelly @ You and Your Big Dreams

Congratulations!
Winners, feel free to grab your badges (right click & save onto your computer), and wear them proudly :)

Tomorrow marks our 100th challenge, can you believe it?? Soon we are launching our 2-nd Anniversary festivities too, you don't want to miss it!!

CASE Study Challenge #98

Hello and welcome to a new month of fun :) As you know, at the beginning of each month we introduce you to a new Muse, and today is the day! Please help me give a warm welcome the lovely and talented Kristii Lockart!!



Hi everyone!! My hubby and I live in a small town in southwestern Montana about an hour and a half from Yellowstone National Park. Exploring Yellowstone and the surrounding country is one of our favorite activities! We have three adult children and two of the sweetest Yorktese puppies you’d ever meet! I work in our local high school library during the winter months and love every minute of it. I’ve been crafting in one form or another all of my life, but papercrafting has taken center stage for the past 9 years. I am so very fortunate to serve on the Glitz Design Team, Antiquated Stamps by Lisa Pace Design Team and CupCards {to go} Design Team. My go to style is shabby chic, but I love a little clean and simple on occasion. I am so thankful for this hobby that I love so much. Not only is it my creative outlet, but through papercrafting I have met the most wonderful people that I am proud to say are my friends!
You can find her at her blog, Sincerely Yours.

Welcome Kristii!! It's a pleasure to have you with us :)
Kristii's cards will serve for our inspiration in June, and we're starting with this beauty, that you might recognize from the last year's Gallery Idol Competition!




Before we get to the Design Team's samples, we would like to welcome back an "old" Teamie, Andrea Ewen!! Andrea had to leave us for a couple of months, but she's ready to jump back in and we couldn't be happier :)
