CASE Study Challenge #174

Hello, crafty friends! Thank you for an amazing start to the new year, your projects were a thrill to look at and there were so many of them! We're blessed with such a powerful group of fans :)
Donna Mikasa is our Muse this month and here's a genius card of hers, that we chose for our inspiration:

Don't forget that this week the search is on for our next Month-Long Guest Designer
If you'd like to be considered for joining us in February, type "GD" next to your name when linking up your entry. Good luck!!    
Here's what our fabulous Design Team came up with:

Donna Mikasa - January Muse

Erin Thiem - January Guest Designer

Clare Buswell

Debby Hughes

Iwona Palamountain (Chupa)

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!


  1. omg omg!! I have alwwwwaaaayys loved this card of Donna's! I am absolutely thrilled you chose this! I hope I can find the time to play this time around!

  2. Hi Chupa, I'm not sure if it's me, but it's happened twice, when I share my link on FB, it's showing someone else's card, even though my card is showing in the box before I proceed.

  3. Jenny, it's a FB issue, unfortunately and has nothing to do with this blog. I'm sorry but there's nothing I can do about it.

  4. Hi Girls!
    Have a nice 2014!
    I look forward to seeing you!
    Hugs Riv

  5. Great inspiration, everyone! I was trying to take a better picture and almost missed this challenge... grrrrr.
