CFC46:  Create a Clean And Simple project based on a song.
*Whether you take your inspiration from the song title or the lyrics, please share which song inspired you.*

Please say hello to our fantastic sponsor!
Melanie Muenchinger

Melanie Muenchinger got her start stamping 9 years ago and started illustrating and designing for Gina K in 2008. To date,  she’s created more than 50 stamp sets exclusively for Gina K Designs, with sets ranging from clean graphic to realistic nature images, whimsical animals, and decorative elements.  She recently published her first book with Annie’s Attic.  You can find more inspiration from Melanie and view all her stamp sets on her blog Hands, Head and Heart. She is honored to be sponsoring the CAS-ual Fridays challenge!

This week, Melanie is donating a signed copy of her book “A Year of Flowers, 64 pages of step by step technique tutorials for 36 cards, arranged by season and occasion, all featuring her stamp set of the same name from Gina K Designs.  This book also includes a perpetual calendar for important dates so you can plan cards as you work and send them out on time.
