Challenge #105 - Wood

Welcome back CAS Addicts! We have a really fun challenge for you this fortnight, so let's get started ~

Ceal is your Hostess for this challenge, and she has chosen this fabulous Code Word ~

Please use the Code Word however it inspires you...just be sure to keep your card CAS ~

STAMPlorations is our sponsor for this challenge, and they are offering a $10.00 voucher to the store.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the incredibly talented Magic Flying Boots (aka Jen)

Hi! My name is Jen, and I live in Nottingham UK with my lovely bloke Mark, and our little tabby cat Emily. I make cards and lampwork glass beads and am currently learning to sew. My lovely friend Linda introduced me to blogging and card challenges a few years ago. I have become a bit obsessed with challenges – it’s such a great way to get inspiration and try designs and colours that you wouldn’t normally use, and you see so many different techniques, clever ideas, and really beautiful cards! Unfortunately, you also discover lots and lots of craft supplies you didn’t realize you absolutely needed... I wish my craft room (and bank account) was bigger!

Here we go with our inspiration ~

Hi, I'm Katrina. I'm an IC design engineer living in Portland, Oregon. I have always enjoyed various craftings. In 2016, I discovered the world of paper crafting, and I became very passionate about it. I would say this is the longest and most involved ever I am into one specific crafting! Not only myself, my kids  are also enjoying making cards with me. You can find out details about my kids and my works at My Blog or my Instagram. 
Also, I would like to take this chance to thank the team for giving me this wonderful opportunity as their Guest Designer!

Challenge #103 - Wish

Happy New Year everyone! After an extended break, we are so happy to be starting 2017 with our Clean & Simple Challenges!

We certainly love providing inspiration for you, and we hope you'll play along with us! A few weeks ago, we announced two new DT members...I know they are excited to join us, so please feel free to stop by their blogs to say hello!


Your Hostess for this fortnight is Anja, and this is the Code Word she has chosen to challenge you:

We all have at least one special wish, and most likely a few goodies in our arsenal to create something fabulous for this challenge. Please use this word however it inspires you, but be sure to keep your design Clean & Simple!

We have a wonderful Sponsor joining us again in 2017:

A big thank you to Create A Smile for their generosity and continued support!

Our first Guest Designer for 2017 is incredibly talented, and there is no doubt that you are already familiar with her CAS style. She is also the winner of Challenge # 101!

Hello, I'm Michelle. I am a university biology tutor from Melbourne, Australia, but I'm also a chorister, a bookworm, a lover of Disney and a science nerd. Card making is my main love, though. You can find me on InstagramPinterestFacebook and at my blog. It is a real pleasure to be a guest designer at ATCAS


Here we go with our inspiration...
