ATCAS - Family

Happy Saturday everyone.

Over at Addicted to CAS, we have a brand new challenge which is being hosted by the incredibly talented Shana. 

Here is the code word she has chosen for you -

This is a great code word for this time of year. I LOVE my family - here is my card 

I used the heart die from my PTI Shakers and Sprinkles kit to create my shaker element. I used one of the confetti dies as a filler and three little heart dies from Lil' Inkers

The stamp is from the same PTI set.

This is the last challenge for ATCAS for 2014. You still have two weeks to link up. Then we will be back with our first challenge on the 17th of January.

There are girls that are stepping down from the DT so they wont be joining us next year -

Michelle - thank you so very much for being part of the team. Your creations are always amazing and inspiring. Take care! xx

Sylvia - you are one of the most gorgeous ladies I know. It was an honour to meet you while I visited London. You made the big trip to the city so we could have lunch together. I will never forget that day or you. xx

Karen - my friend! You are always in my thoughts and prayers. You have been such an inspiring team member at ATCAS with your amazing cards. I wish we could have met in April but I was so lucky to meet your sister, Val. When you see each other before Christmas, you have to give each other a hug from me. xx

Marie - what's to say about ugly bum? Well, I do have to admit that when we met in Spain, we were like we had known each other all our lives. Marie was a bad influence especially when it came to drinking. Wow, we had a sensational 5 days and it was a time in my life I will never forget. From our sight seeing trips down the coast of southern Spain, the walk around the village visiting each bar, the lunch at the old bandit restaurant and then singing ABBA songs.... you crazy woman. Love ya guts xx

and last but not least - 

Sandie - my London bestie. Sandie opened up her home to me in April. All she and Callum did was look after me and spoil me. I saw nearly the whole of London, went shopping, ate sushi, went to the theatre, had Chinese food home delivered, was given chocolate on Easter Sunday, had cocktails made for me every night and got to make cards. My time with Sandie and Callum was unforgettable and I thank them so much for the wonderful memories. They are even talking about coming over to Australia in 2016 and it can't come soon enough! I miss you heaps, my friend and cherish our memories. 

So, as you can see my ATCAS designers are not just designers. They are my family too. I love them all dearly and appreciate all the work they put into ATCAS. 


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Daring Cardmakers - Shaker cards
Penny's Paper-Crafty - Anything other than Christmas
