Hi lovely friends, followers and crafters - I hope you have had a happy fortnight, and are ready to get out your stamps and join in our new challenge!
A few days ago, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Kylie, Sandie, Sue, Val, Monika and Marina, whilst I was on a short break in London.  We had lunch together (and lots of laughter!)  at the St. Martin-in-the-Fields Cafe in the Crypt - a truly fantastic day!
 So - onto our new ATCAS challenge! Your Hostess is our lovely leader, Kylie, and her choice of Code Word is .............

I used:-
The Memory Box Honey Comb stencil and Distress Inks.
A sentiment from the Stampin' Up "Happy Day" set.
Memory Box "Pippi" Butterfly die.

Our generous Sponsor, Bugaboo Digi Stamps, are offering our CAS Perfectionist a pack of 7 digis from their store.

Happy Crafting ~

Hi lovely crafters! 
Thank you for all your fabulous entries in our ATCAS Wheels challenge - it was very difficult to choose the winners, but you can see who they are if you pop over to the ATCAS blog on Monday!

The challenge this fortnight is hosted by the very talented Michelle
and she has chosen this Code Word ~

Here is my take on the Code Word ~ 

I masked a circle for the moon, coloured the panel with Distress Inks, then spritzed with water.
The bird stamp is from the Crafty Secrets "French Mail" set. 
The stamped image looked rather "flat", so I stamped a second one, cut it out, curved it slightly and attached with silicone glue.
Sentiment from the Penny Black Salutations set.

Our fabulous sponsor is Kathryne of StampArt Designs, and our
CAS Perfectionist will receive 5 StampArt digis of their own choice.

Happy Crafting ~
