It’s time for a new cue word over at CASology and we’re starting to gear up for next week’s milestone challenge!  We can hardly believe we’re approaching our 100th challenge!  This week, we thought we’d focus on anniversary as our cue word!

It seems like I always think of love and married couples when this word pops up in front of me.  I suppose one could also think about work milestones such as retirement.  I went with a love theme for my take on the cue word.

I used a Lawn Fawn die to create the stitched circle and heart, filling the negative space with a little My Mind’s Eye decorative paper.  I decided to keep the sentiment inside the circle, hoping to preserve a very clean look for the design.  Notice the white space is not necessarily white.  In this case, it is kraft!

This week, STAMPlorations is sponsoring us and is offering both our winner and a random participant a prize, so be sure and play along for your chance to win!  They’re having a pre-release sale on their upcoming July stamps, so you’ll want to go take a peek and grab some for your stash at 30% off!

Before you get started, be sure and visit the other design team members’ blogs for explanations of their designs and to get to know them a bit more!  They are truly one-of-a-kind!

Summer break is officially here in our household.  We’re making a summer bucket list and I’m creating a flexible daily schedule to keep us all somewhat sane!  I usually inherit a couple more kids from around the neighborhood during the week, so things get even more lively!
Have a terrific Tuesday!
