So let’s see what the design team have made for us.

Anjie - This is a hard one for me as I love to use embellies and dies on my cards, so I had to sit on my hands lol. The image is Miss Charlotte from the Rose Budd download Collection. The collection is also available as a CD HERE. Miss Charlotte is also available as a clear stamp HERE. I have coloured her with my Graph'It Markers. More details on my blog.

Scatty Jan Ohhhh I do struggle with CAS , but I spotted a card in a recent magazine and thought it looked lovely so adapted it to suit,  The paper and sentiments are both from the new Twiggy and Toots adorable collection that you can find here also as a download here...
Caz  For my clean and simple, i have used the lovely digi called Love & Kisses...You can also get her on the fab collection Work n play 9 Love & Kisses.
Jane – Hi everyone!  CAS always makes me slightly nervous as the emphasis does seem to be on colouring but I ploughed on regardless (I’m stubborn that way) and used the spectacularly beautiful Octavia Moonfly Wistful.  Isn’t she stunning!! If you want to go a little less CAS she has a great bundle of gorgeous papers and embellies to go with her (and her many incarnations) in her very own collection here.  You may have seen Octavia Moonfly showcased on Create and Craft the other week! Scrumdiddlyumptious! J  Enjoy your day! xxx

Tanya....I’ve printed the lovely Milking Time With Kittens digi out onto Ultimate Graphic paper and coloured her with my Graph It pens and then made a card shape using one of my dies by Tonic and added a simple sentiment tag – Just Popping By To Say Hi – also from the W&P 10 collection and voila….clean and simple.
Dawn I have used Saucy Wedding Night from Love & Kisses Work & Play CD & is also available as a download here. There are loads of elements on this CD, which can be used for all sorts, not just weddings etc. She is coloured with Polychromo pencils. An easy CAS card.
Kate: This is one of my favourite themes to work with, and I did no colouring on this unless you count using chalks round the edges. I used the very handsome pre-coloured Harvey from the Cherryblossom Lane collection and you can see details on my make on my blog
Lynda: I find CAS cards the hardiest to do but I really loved making this card. I used a sentiment and digi stamp from the work and play 9,   Love & Kisses collection to create a sweet and simple design. I printed out a background paper from the same collection and paper pieced the heart. This collection is available as a digital download or on a CD. Have fun xx 
Monica- I´m not a CAS crafter. I love shapes, dimension, 3d and work with colorful papers. So this is my not so CAS card for this week. I used stunning papers from Dollie Dream Goes East and the lovely digi is Octavia Bird on Hand.

Wendy - For this weeks card, I've used a flower cuttiing file and arranged and resized them in the Silhouette software and then cut directly onto my card blank. The cutting file is here. The image is from the Pretty Sweet CD collection, but you can get Piper as a digi here. The beautifully scrolled sentiment is from Work & Play 3.
Yvonne - Hi there. Well I have come to like doing CAS cards, I think it's the images that help to be honest! I am still in love with the Work & Play 10: Country Life Collection, which you can get as a CD-Rom or as an instanrt Digi Download Collection. I chose 'Dog Walking' and you can find the individual digi here. Coloured with my Polychromos Pencils - getting better I think! The sentiment is from the same collection.

Great makes from everyone I’m sure you will agree.
