CASE Study Challenge #139

There's not much that constitute for a challenge for you any more, is there?? At least when it comes to guessing future Muses, since you nailed it again! :)
May is going to be ever so amazing, with the aid of, I dare say one of the most inspirational paper-crafters out there, Maile Belles!!
Welcome, Maile! Here's a few words from her...

I have been happily married to my high school sweetheart for 11 years. The two of us are blessed with an adorable son, who delights and challenges us every day. We live in sunny California, in a small mountain town that both my hubby and I grew up in. As a family we love to enjoy the outdoors; either by taking off-roading excursion in our family Jeep, by hitting the trails on our dirt bikes, camping or hiking.

 ... and the first portion of awesomeness from the Queen of CAS, the card below!

Before we shout "ready, set, create!", let's put our hands together for our May Month-Long Guest Designer, Erin Schulte!

Also, some news, as we're changing the rules around a wee bit. 
From now on, if you wish to be considered our next Guest Designer, your chance will come on every second challenge of the month. You will no longer be considered, if you link up your card with "GD" included with your entry, on any other dates. So, if you'd like to be featured along with our Design Team in June, tune in for the next challenge ahead, commencing on the 9th of May! 
Here's what our fabulous Design Team came up with:

Maile Belles - May Muse

Erin Schulte - May Guest Designer

Clare Buswell

Debby Hughes

Iwona Palamountain (Chupa)

Jean Martin

We are thrilled to welcome a fabulous sponsor this week, Penny Black!!

The amazing prize for one lucky player, is a set of three cling stamps from their April 2013 Release, as seen below. Holy moly, you better come and play!! :)

Did you know that Penny Black Club Members are among the first to receive fabulous news announcements and special projects?!! It is easy to join (here) with your e-mail address!
Penny Black has creative inspiration every week day on their blog as well!!

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 CSC139), 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!
The CASE Study Design Team
