Just Add Water!

Now, with it being 2020, and if you have a mogwai (you know, Gizmo), I wouldn't recommend adding ANY water . . . but if you are working on an art project, that could be a whole different story! This week's challenge is "add water", and as you know, you can take that however you want! So, let's take a look and see what our design team came up with!

Here's our Design Team's inspiration:

Sunny Days

Summer is fully upon us and if you are like us you are loving the warm sunny days we are having lately. Our love of the season is the inspiration for this weeks challenge, this weeks challenge is all about Sunny Days. Create a project of any kind that celebrates the sun, warm weather, and fun of summer. It can be a card, layout or home decor item, that is up to you the only requirement is that it must feature at least one Close to My Heart product, outside of that let your imagination run wild.



To give you some ideas, our design team has been hard at work creating some fun sunny day projects for you...



















Now it is time to show us your amazing artwork by linking below. Remember you have until July 31 at 11:59 pm to link up to any of the July challenges. We hope you will play along with us!
