Addicted to CAS Challenge #170



Hello there, CAS Addicts! It's time for a new challenge! Our Hostess is Angie, and she has chosen 'Plaid' as our code word!
Before we begin, let's review the rules for the challenge:

We have a super talented Guest Designer for this challenge...Arlene Rose


From the age of two I have always had an instrument of art in my hand. It started with crayons and never stopped. I was signed up to art school after graduation from nursing school but met my hubby and that led me down a different path. I have been rubber stamping for over 45 years. 

Back then I was only able to find stamps and ink pads in the local drug store. I had my youngest, born with Down’s Syndrome, and stayed home where I began teaching online. After my boys were in school I started working in craft and stamp stores, sadly all now closed. I have been teaching card crafting as well as other crafts for 12 years in the library system. I love to share my “talents” that God gave me with others.

We have a super 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 colours. 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 and oh my goodness, it’s fun!

Addicted to CAS Card Challenge #168 - Style



Hello there, CAS Addicts! It's time for a new challenge! Our Hostess is Raga, and she has chosen 'Style' as our code word!
Before we begin, let's review the rules for the challenge:


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


Hello, my name is Shawna Standish from TheGrandStampede. I am so happy to be with Addicted to CAS as their guest designer. So, how did I start stamping and cardmaking? Well, it started off on a grim note.
I was told in 2013 that I have lost sight in my periphery and center vision. The doctors said it may progress to complete blindness. Fortunately, after seeing a number of specialists it was determined my blindness occurred earlier in life.
During this time, I started to look at the world in a different way. It was full of vivid colors, bold shapes, brighter lights, and unique elements. It all looked so clear to me. I wanted to soak it all up.
I was so inspired by my ‘new’ sight, that I acquired an immense amount of creative energy. I had to get it out, somehow? It was then I discovered stamping. I was hooked and wanted to share my love for crafting with others who felt the same way. I  knew I had to do more. So, 2014 I started my blog TheGrandStampede. I entered some challenges and was so inspired by everyone’s craftiness and your wonderful comments that it put my creativity in overdrive.
Personally, I have a fantastic supportive husband of eighteen years and am a mother of two tween/teen children. Other than crafting, I like to camping (I should really say glamping), fishing, coloring and spending time with my family.  
That should do it for me. I would like to thank Addicted to CAS  again for this tremendous opportunity. If you haven’t already done so, I encourage you to check out my blog TheGrandStampede and become a follower. I only hope you get as much inspiration from me as I have from all of you.
