Winners and Top 3 of Challenge #30 - CAS


Wow, did we have some entries for this! How lovely they all were too. Some of you fellow Crafters really are masters of your craft (or should that be Mistresses!). I will confess right here and now that I took a lot of inspiration and ideas from entries in this challenge, so thanks to each one of you and if you recognise your style being reflected back - nowhere near as good - that is why!


CAS stands for Clean and Simple

It is being sponsored by


Our sole sponsor for this challenge is the wonderful Pickled Potpourri - you can still  hop on over to check out their shop...

The winner of this challenge will receive: a $ 7.00 voucher to spend in the shop!

And that would you you Skye #46


Hilde says: I really like the simplistic approach to the card, and using finger prints for the birds I thought very clever...

Congratulations Skye; if you go to the top of this page and find the page called 'Winners/Contact Details' you can contact us regarding your prize. You are also encouraged to collect the winner's badge from the side bar (copy/paste) and display it on your blog!

Now, with all those lovely entries, our TOP THREE provided Sammy with quite a task this week to choose some winners but she settled on:

I simply love everything about this card. The colours, the jaunty angles of the layers, the stunning hand-drawn fruit... Gorgeous!


I really love CAS cards with an image in the corner and the rest white, and this is such a fab image too. And I love the matching inside and envelope!
(ED: I like the sentiment! LOL)

I love the bright pinks on the kraft background. They're simple, yet elegant and a perfect way to say thank you.

So, ladies, Congratulations again and please feel free to copy/paste the TOP THEE badge from the side bar and brag! You deserve it!

Now, remember that we have alternating card and other challenges each fortnight and we have just had our card one so the next one has to be 'other'!

Challenge #29: Winners Post

Hello to all our loyal followers. How are you all coping now Germany has won the World Cup? Congratulations to them and commiserations to everyone else! On to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow! My Grandfather came from there and it is such a pretty city now they have cleaned up all the sandstone buildings. I really like their City Hall - that staircase! So antebellum! I can see me sweeping down it in crinolines and lots of petticoats! Of, course, I would have Mr Darcy at the bottom waiting for me - not Mr "Frankly, I don't give a damn!". We can but dream.....
