Now on to our last CAS Christmas challenge of the year ...

 Oh my stars, Christmas is only 22 days away!  

Hello everyone!  Trina here and I am your host for December's challenge at CAS Christmas.  If you haven't guessed from my corny opening 😂, I have chosen Stars as the theme.  There is also a slight change this month as the challenge will be a half month long and run only till December 15.  With it being such a busy time of year, this will allow me and my team some much needed time off.  But you do have close to two weeks to get your entries linked and complete any last minute Christmas cards!

As always, my amazing team and our wonderful guest, Cindy of Escape to Stamping, have created some fabulous cards that are sure to inspire you.  Hope you will join us. 

Wishing you and yours a safe and happy holiday season!



Please follow the challenge rules:
    • Christmas cards only following monthly theme
    • CAS design (clean and simple) - definition on sidebar
    • Include link to challenge on your blog post

      this challenge.  You will be missed!

      I hope you're ready for Christmas with most of your cards made because you know there's only just over 7 more weeks to go.  If you're like me, you need to get a few more done.

      Here at CAS Christmas the theme for November is Santa.  Scroll down and see what the design team have created for you.  I'm sure you'll see lots of inspiring cards.

        CAS Christmas October 2018 Top Picks


        October's Bird challenge was a great success with many amazing entries.
        Thanks to all that played along with us!

        Our Top Pick for October
        Cindy (Escape to Stamping)
        By mixing two shades of green ink, Cindy achieved a real sense of dimension in her pine branch.  She topped it with a cardinal and three pine cones, all beautifully watercoloured and shaded.  The finishing touch of gold embossed sentiment and gold splatter added lots of extra festive interest but still kept her card perfectly CAS.

        Congratulations, Cindy!
        Make sure to grab the "Top Pick" badge below.
