Farewell, May!

Today, we're bidding May farewell.  We have been so fortunate to have her on the design team for the past year and a half!  Her talent is so evident and she is just the sweetest person!  She put together a photo of some of her favorite creations while on the team.  Maybe you remember some of these fabulous cards?  You can see them in full over on her blog!

As a fond farewell, May is having a giveaway for all our CASology participants!  There will be two winners!  One lucky winner will win a $25 Avery Elle gift certificate!  Another lucky winner will win a $15 gift certificate for CAS-ual Fridays!  Be sure and head on over to her blog for the details!  You have until July 5 at 11:59 PST to enter!

We wish you all the best in the months ahead, May!  We will miss you, but know you are destined for great things!
