Now let’s see what the fabulous team have made us for this weeks challenge!

Anjie - This is a hard one for me as I usually throw everything I have at a card! It was soooo hard to step away lol. The image is Octavia thinking from the download store and is colured with my Graph'It Markers. The pens I have used can be found on my blog.

Yvonne - Hello everyone, well I thought CAS would be scary but I actually loved it and I really like what I came up with. I used Amelia Braids digi image which you can get here. I also used one of the backing papers from the Pretty Sweet Collection.  Amelia has been coloured with my Graph'It Markers, a full list of colours used is on my blog. Including the new release colours.......

Crafting Vicky  - Oh my... just the word CAS is hard for me... For my make I decided to use the very cute little Winston Heartfelt that you can purchase alone or part of the great Winston full collection.  The paper and sentiment are from the same collection.

Scatty Jan hmmmm CAS took some thinking. I decided to make my Granddaughter a Name table setting for Christmas. I used the Festive Hollybobs Collection using the pre coloured image and adding her name.

It really was very simple but as I loved it so much, I had to do one for everyone- All of the images are from the same collection - How cute!

Wendy - This week was really hard for me, can't do CAS very well! I chose the North Pole sign  from the embellishments section of Festive Hollybobs and coloured with Graph'Its. With a little bit of Stickles glitter glue, I think it's simple but effective.The sentiment is from the same collection.

Julie - I found this theme quite difficult as I don't think I have ever made a CAS card before. For my card I have used the wonderful new Winston Download.  There is a gorgeous selection of Kraft papers as well as patterned papers in this download, The lovely Winston birthday image is also from the download, it's also available on the Winston CD and as a single image called Winston Bear Birthday in the Polkadoodles Digiworld Store HERE

Caz..Here is my CAS card, I'm not one for adding lots to my cards, but had to think about this one...I have used the lovely Etty's New Dress available as a digi download here, which is also in the fab Winston collection download and available on CD too.

Jane – Hi everyone! Sooooo excited to be here! Jumping up and down embarrassingly as we speak! J Anyway, I played with the gorgeous Etty Shy and elements from the Winston Full Collection to create my card.  I used Serif for my matting and layering to produce a single layered topper. I also re-sized two of the flower embellishments (love digis!!), cut them out and used them to add a little (but not too much) 3D interest.  So there it is.  Clean and simple! Enjoy your day! xx

Emma - Hi this is my CAS card & i have used the ever so cute Hollybobs Little elf who can be found Here or in the Hollybobs full collection Here  & have coloured him up using Copic's & Pro Markers. The paper & little tag can also be found in the Hollybobs full collection.

Kate -  I love CAS cards but at the minute I'm trying to learn to make the cards with Loads of embellies on, so had to reign myself in again :) I used Ralph with Hat and coloured him with Pro Markers, more details are on my blog xx

Monica - This is my first post here and I´m pretty excited to be part of this talented design team. 
I´m not very familiar with CAS cards, this is my very first attempt on it. My focal point is the lovely Hollybobs Mailbox digistamp, colored with a mix of Spectrum Noir Pens and Prismacolor Pencils. This digi, the sentiments and the background papers are all part of Work and Play 5-Festive Hollybobs Collection

Tanya - I used to really struggle to think of card designs when it comes to Clean & Simple as I love lots of dimension and embellishments on my cards, but Nikky’s lovely designs have made the task a lot lot easier.  I’ve used the utterly gorgeous Xmas Angelberry Pray digi stamp which is available HERE for the great price of only £2.00 or available as an actual clear stamp HERE.  I coloured her using Graph'Its and added a touch of glitter to her wings and Wink of Stella on her hair.  I absolutely adore this image and now plan to make more cards featuring her.  A full list of the ‘ingredients’ I have used to make the design can be found on my blog. 

Nikki - My inspiration card for the CAS themed challenge is using the ever so cute Winston Bear Get in Touch. I have a really soft spot for teddy bears and inking them up, so when I saw the Winston collection I just knew I had to create something with him. There are a variety of ways that Winston can be purchased. He can be purchased as a single digital stamp here, or you can buy the full Winston collection either by CD or instant download. The Winston collection includes numerous items, including the digital papers I used with this card.
