So let’s see what the design team have made for us....
Lynda: I find CAS cards quite hard to make but really enjoyed making this one. I used the lovely  Work & Play 8: Feel The Music which is available on a CD or as a digital download. I paper pieced his T'shirt and added gems to the music notes to finish off the card. Have Fun xx 

Jane – Hello! Happy New Year everyone! Hope you had a fabulous Christmas!
 My CAS card is ‘shaken not stirred’ using this awesome image from Nikky called SPY/JAMES BOND.  He comes with his own sentiment but as this is a birthday card I have used an appropriate one from WORK AND PLAY 3.  Have a happy crafty day! xxx

Audrey prefers to call this type of card Clean and Classy because in my opinion, there's nothing simple about them! LOL  I chose Opera Singer Girl image download for my creation, she is also part of the Work and Play Volume 8 Feel the Music Bonus Full Collection.  My sentiment can also be found in the Work and Play Volume 8 Feel the Music Bonus Full Collection.  I changed the color of it using Gimp - first colored it to transparency and then changed the background color to match the paper I chose.  This beautiful snowflake paper is from Frosted Winter Octavia Digital Download.  Sure hope you like it:)

Helen - I love making clean and simple cards and for this one I decided to work with one of the designs from the Adult Colouring Pages 1 Bundle which is available to download here on the Polkadoodles website.  I simply printed the design on to card, coloured it with alcohol pens and then layered it on to black and white card finishing with some black gems.

Anjie - I have used a pre-coloured image and a sentiment from the adorable Rose Budd Download collection. You can also buy this on a CD HERE if you wish. And you can buy the very handsome Mr Jeremiah as a clear stamp HERE. More details on my blog.

Fiona - Here is my CAS card for this weeks challenge, I am not keen on doing them either.  For my card I have used a image from the Work and Play 9 Love and Kisses the image is called Cupid.  You can either by the single image at the polka doodles site. Or you can download the entire collection download.

Monica.- CAS cards are not my thing, but we are here to take challenges :o) ...The adorable digi I`m using is from Nikky Digital Stamp Download and the gorgeous sentiment is from Eden Download Collection.
Julie -- It looks like Monica and I are thinking alike this week :) I also used the Nikky Digital  Stamp download.  It comes with the stamp and six(!) designer papers!  Isn't Nikky just so cute?!?  I colored her with Copic markers, and inked the edges of both papers.  The ticket is from the Work & Play 9 Collection, available both in CD and Digital  Craft Download.
Tanya - Happy New Year everybody.  Like some of my fellow team mates I struggle with the Clean and Simple card challenges but I've cracked it this time I think!  I've used the Eden Collection available as a DOWNLOAD and a CD and merged it with the Rose Budd Collection available as a DOWNLOAD and CD here and just by using a little bit of glitter and some glossy accents I've made a clean and simple card. Voila!!
Aunty Sue - Wow 2016 hope you enjoyed the holidays. Well for my CAS card I have used yes one of my Favorite images Oddella Heart available as a download HERE and my paper are from Sugar Birdies CD available HERE.. I went with some bright colours to cheer us up in the cold and wet days we are having. The sentiment is from our Work & Play 9 Love and Kisses which is available as a download here. A perfect download for the up and coming Valentines season. 

Gail - Happy New Year everyone, hope you all had a wonderful Xmas and wishing you all the very best for 2016. Onto the first challenge of 2016, I went for a little notelet collection using the very beautiful Eden collection. The Eden collection is available on CD-Rom or as a Digital Download.
