We have a super talented Guest Designer for this challenge...Hilary


My name is Hilary and I have been making cards for a few years now. My crafting got serious after I retired from my career in the NHS. I used to enjoy making things and sewing in my youth so it was a natural thing to take up again once I had more time on my hands. It seems that card making is the craft that has taken me over judging by the amount of equipment I am collecting! I started my blog so I could enter some card challenges and I have been so reassured to find a community of people all over the world who are just like me. Thank you for being there and sharing all your wonderful cards.

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

Don't forget, as always, Happy Little Stampers (HLS)  is our Sponsor, and Kylie is generously awarding a stamp set to our winner


At the end of December, the HLS shop will be closing down - get in now for some bargains!
We have a super talented Guest Designer for this challenge...Chrissie Stokes


Chrissie is a retired Primary School teacher, who began cardmaking in 2007, prompted by a request to make her daughter’s wedding stationery. In the years which followed,  she experimented with a variety of styles until her chosen genre, Clean and Simple, became the focus of all her cards. For many years she was on the Design team of the British Craft Magazine ‘Craft Stamper’ and has served on numerous blog design teams.

In 2011 she created the CAS challenge blog “Less is More” with fellow crafter Mandi Moore, which has gone from strength to strength. Since stepping back from the full time running of LIM she now has more time to  enjoy spending time with grandchildren and taking many breaks and holidays, cruising being a particular favourite!



OK, now let's see what the DT gals came up with for the code word:






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