Welcome to another Saturday which means a brand new challenge here at ATCAS.

Here is a little about what would be expected of you :)

For this challenge, it is the end of an era here at ATCAS. Our wonderful and extremely talented, Marie, is hanging up her ATCAS hat and this will be the last challenge for her as a DT member.

Marie was an original designer and one of the first to jump on board when I decided to start this challenge blog. She will be missed terribly but at least we can still visit her over at her blog

We love you Marie!!!!

Our wonderful sponsor this week is

me at this email. Mention you saw my business card at ATCAS and you will receive 10% off the total invoice! Offer will remain open until 31st December 2014.

We also have a brand new Guest Desinger joining us this month -

Linda L (Creepin Along). Welcome Linda!!

What a surprise and honor it is to be chosen as this month's Guest Designer at ATCAS. The midwest, specifically the state of Iowa, is where I call home. I have dabbled in card making throughout my life. However, it was getting connected to Operation Write Home that really allowed my passion for card making to grow. It has been a wonderful experience to "meet" others online with a similar passion. 

I have enjoyed participating in the ATCAS challenges as I try to improve my card making skills, particularly stamping. The Clean and Simple style results in such stunning creations. I cannot wait to see what you create!

Here is the inspiration from the Design Team -

Linda L (Guest Designer)

Vicki (your hostess)

We can't wait to see what you come up with. Don't forget to visit our blogs should you like to see how we came up with our ideas :)
