Hi lovely crafters - thanks for popping in, and yes, it's ATCAS challenge time again! (please note - this challenge will end on 5th September, so just one week to join in the fun, instead of the usual 2 weeks).
The very talented Sandie is your host, and she has chosen this Code Word -
lots of scope - I'm sure we all have our own ideas of "Luxury"! 
Look forward to seeing your fab. creations!

The fab. image is "Little Umbrella" from Mo Manning, coloured with Copics. 
I added a quick swipe of ink for sky and sand with SU Soft Sky and Crumb Cake. 
I hand-cut the rectangular aperture - added an embossed border with my 
SU Simply Scored.  
Sentiment - SU "Happy Day" stamp set (now retired).
Small punched circle for the "sun"!
I am also linking up with Chrissie's LIM challenge - "I do like to be beside the seaside"!
A Gem of a Challenge - It's Summertime!

Our CAS Perfectionist will receive a $15 GIFT VOUCHER to spend at
 Inspired by Stamping
Many thanks to Joanna for her generosity. 

Happy Crafting

Hi Peeps - it's time for a new challenge at ATCAS! Thanks so much for popping by!
This fortnight's Code Word has been chosen by our lovely Teamie, Harriet  ~

Must admit, my first response to the Code Word was "Yikes", but after doing some research, and giving it lots of thought,  I realised I have actually used Geometric shapes on my cards in the past, and here is an Xmas tree design which I first used several years ago. 
After lots of searching in the darkest corners of my craft room, I re-discovered my original tree card, which I  immediately de-constructed, so I could see how I put it together! Although it may look rather complicated, it's actually very quick and easy to make, and great fun too!

Here is my newly made version for my DT card ~

 There are quite a few geometric shapes in this design - firstly, the tree is made with nine  punched 2" squares, folded  Tea-Bag fashion (Hands up if you remember the Tea-Bag-Folding era)!!  The squares are folded into large and small Triangles, and the finished tree is triangular too.  The tub is a piece of white card cut in a Trapezoid shape, popped up on a 3-d pad.
Of course, the Star is  Geometric too!
Blue and white spotty paper - Craft Creations.
Sentiment - LOTV
 Stampin-Up  Framelits Stars die (the smallest from the set), cut and layered 3 times to give dimension.
Do pop over to the ATCAS Blog to see what fab. creations the DT have come up with!

Our CAS Perfectionist will receive 3 images from our Fab. Sponsor, Scribbles Designs

Happy Crafting ~
