Theme is Lazy Days & Hazy Nights

Designs should be accessible for intermediate, and advanced beginners.

Send to: Chloe:

Brief Description:
Design will be sold online, through website, and in retail outlets – please email for further informations

I'd have nothing to submit but I wondered about this when I read it. It's nice to know you all are aware and looking out for us. Thank you.

This post had a lot of red flags, so I completely skipped it. I would've asked questions and said something, but I guessed it was just spam.
