CAS – Even More Than Usual lol!!

Hi peeps and hope you are all OK today – hasn’t it gone cold!!!

Today over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge, our theme is

Thanksgiving /  Thank You

This week, the DT are showcasing Hero Arts products. You don't HAVE to use them to join in but if you have them then why not use them :)

There is a whopper of a voucher up for grabs ….

.. which our lucky winner will get to spend  …

… right here and with so much new stuff being added all the time, our winner will be spoilt for choice for sure.

So I went for ‘Thank You’ and I thought I’d do something different (and that isn't including managing to get the challenge right !!)

No, I went for CAS.

I know I usually err on the CAS side but this is quite plain even for old plain Jane here …. but I rather like it!!

There was no colouring involved – just a bit of paper piecing and I thought that if you had lots of thank you cards to do, hopefully cos you’ve had lots of prezzies to say thank you for (and I hope that the fat lad in the red suit is listening here!!), then this would be ideal.

Ok that’s me done today – a bit of a quickie cos I am prepping for the all day workshop we have at the weekend. Lots to do and not lots of time to do it in as per usual!! Enjoy your night and see you soon if not sooner.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxx

Hi Dawny and my goodness what a beautiful card, you do the CAS to a T! I agree, it's the perfect card to mass produce after the red suited fella has been..........I'll be sure to leave him a bit of cheese and some Garners :D. Have a good week. Big hugs, Chris xxx
