Addicted to CAS Challenge #174 - Tree

Hello there, CAS Addicts! It's time for a new challenge! Our Hostess for this challenge is Ceal, and she has chosen our code word!


Before we begin, let's review the rules for the challenge:

We have an incredibly talented Guest Designer for this challenge...Vicky Hayes 

Hi! I’m Vicky Hayes from Crafting Clare’s Paper Moments. My blog is called that because my daughter used to say “Uh-oh! I see Crafting Clare has got her stuff out again!” whenever I had a crafty moment! Rude! I was introduced to stamping at a Stamping’ Up party in 2009 and was blown away by the colors. I became a demo and was proud to be chosen to be the first UK Artisan Designer in 2014-15. Soon afterward, I became ill and gave up stamping but, this year, I suddenly had the urge to make a card again and blog it. Unfortunately, my husband had sold most of my stash thinking I wouldn’t want it (it’s ok, he’s still alive and I’ve forgiven him!) Now, I’m in the process of rebuilding my stash and oh my goodness, it’s fun!


Now, for some inspiration from the Design Team:

Ceal (Hostess)






*** This is our last challenge for 2019. The DT will be taking a break to enjoy the holidays with family and friends and we will return on January 18 (AEST) with a brand new challenge for you!

On behalf of Kylie and the ATCAS Design Team, we wish you all a safe and blessed holiday season!

Now we turn it over to you to see your take on the code word 'Tree'! Have fun creating, and don't forget to keep it CAS!
