CASE Study Challenge #156

Hi there! You know what happens today... we introduce our next Muse! We're excited to announce that September belongs to the Queen of Markers, Kathy Racoosin!!

Kathy says...
Since I was a toddler I have always had a passion for the artistic--whether adding flourishes to my coloring book pictures, or creating cards for family & friends. Fortunately in 2009, I discovered card making & blogging. Since then I have designed for the teams of Simon Says Stamp, Penny Black, Basic Grey, Two Peas in a Bucket & SRM Stickers, to name a few and I have guest designed for the Online Card Classes, as well as Purple Onion Designs. I am constantly inspired by others' card designs and love sharing & giving mini tutorials on my blog.

Welcome, Kathy!! It's a pleasure to have you. Here's the first inspiration card from the Muse. Feeling inspired already?

Please also help us extend a warm welcome, to our Month-Long Guest Designer, Amber Hight!!
Here's what our fabulous Design Team came up with:

Kathy Racoosin - September Muse

Amber Hight - September Guest Designer

Clare Buswell

Debby Hughes

Iwona Palamountain (Chupa)

Jean Martin

Jeanne Jachna

Maureen Merritt

 Silke Ledlow

Tasnim Ahmed

Now all you have to do is play with us!
Here's the scoop:
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 to your blog or an online gallery, 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
