I've got to give it to you: you made this post the hardest I remember in a long time! It was an agonizing decision to leave it at four cards and I was very close to featuring 10! It makes my heart grow to see so much talent gathering here every week, thank you so much :)
As for the applicants for the Guest Designer spot, again many thanks to all for your interest, one lucky gal will be contacted shortly and will join us in October!
......................................................................................... 

Our winner for CSC157 is Jen from Jenerally Speaking!!



This card caught my eye straight away, with its unusual but perfectly balanced layout and expertly matched colours. It's very hard to made a focal point stand out against such a busy background, but Jen achieved that effect with perfection and we love it!!

Yvonne @ Do More With Less
Cris @  her Flickr photostream
Cornelia @ Stempel Pass

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!!
