ATCAS Challenge #25

Hello everyone! And we are back to Saturday!!

Time has flown for me this week as I have been helping out a local business on the island while the owners are away on a cruise - lucky ducks!!

I haven't had much time for craft, which I am not happy about, lol. I've received some new goodies from the Ellen Hutson shop over in the US and have been going a bit crazy with my Stampin' Up orders too. Now that the weekend is here, hopefully I can get everything sorted out and ready for a play.

Right, onto this fortnight's challenge over at Addicted to CAS.

I am the hostess this week and here is the code word I chose -

One Layer - pretty self explanatory. No other layers, just your card base.

We are sponsored by

for this challenge and you have the chance to win 5 images of your choice from their store!!

I have used a sponsor image for my card. It is called Summer Block.

I chose this image as the weather is so hot here right now (It's cooler in the more southern areas of Australia). The beach, sun and ice-cream cone are just perfect for me right now.

I printed the image directly onto my cardstock and coloured everything in with my Spectrum Noirs. I didn't really bother with blending or anything. I thought that the colours would be nice and bright just colouring in. Who doesn't just love colouring in?

In the end, this card was very easy and quick to make.

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with for this challenge!

I would also just like to ask you all to save a thought or prayer for the people who have been affected by the devasting Bush Fires in NSW right now. Lives, homes and livestock have been lost. Also, a shout out to those many, many fire fighters who are risking their lives to save others. Many of those fire fighters are volunteers and having been a volunteer in a Rural Fire Brigade myself, I wish them all the best and to keep safe.

A man who was flying a helicopter and dropping water on the fires has lost his life while doing so. My thoughts are with his family and friends.

Thanks so much for looking xx


  1. So sorry to hear about the devastation with the fires Kylie , living in a country where every summer we suffer from them is a terrifying thing my thoughts and prayers are with all of the families and firefighters.
