CASology 200 - CAS


This week's CASology Cue Card is CAS!



It is our 200th challenge and I'm so proud to say I've been here since the beginning (along with Jen, Tracey and of course, Melissa!) - CASology was one of my very first DTs!

We thought we would celebrate by going back to our roots. Where it all began. With Clean and Simple design. In effect, this challenge is 'Anything Goes as long as it's CAS'.

AND, there's prizes! Several members of the DT will be offering blog candy. Each DT member who is participating will select a random commenter from their blog who also links up a card at CASology: CAS this week. Winners will be announced on each DT blog as well as on the CASology blog next Tuesday.

My card uses some old and new stamps - I just got Altenew's Best Mom set (prepare yourself - I've been playing with it a lot!). To keep the design CAS, I cut down the image and left it uncoloured, preserving white space. I created a little sentiment element with Neat & Tangled's Everyday Circles and Mama Elephant's Blogging Buddies.

My blog candy is the limited edition, all-occasion "One Big Happy" stamp + die collection from Papertrey Ink:




Now it's your turn! Remember to leave a comment here AND link up a card at CASology for a chance to win my blog candy!

The DT has even more inspiration (and prizes!) - make sure you check them out!
