CAS Challenge Card

Hello, and welcome!

Another warm....nay, hot day here,  but it meant I could fill the ol'  washing line with various pieces of the Lewis Household's sartorial attire......which now means I've got half a ton of ironing to do...haaaa!
Okie-dokie........on with the real business!

It's Friday (all day, as my Mam says), which means it's time for a Challenge at 
and this one, I'm sure , is goin' to be pretty popular.......we want to see your 
CAS creations......yep.....clean and simple is the order of the week!

It gets pretty excitin' around these parts when we have TWO SPONSORS!!!

Here they are........


One randomly drawn winner will receive their choice of two (2) digital images from   Oak Pond Creations  ... and another randomly drawn winner will receive their choice of five (5) digital images from  Robyn's Fetish ...  How cool is that?

I chose to play with this gorgeous little Christmas Cottage image from Robyn's Fetish, and if you pop over to the Challenge blog, you'll see what the other Design Team members have chosen to play with....gorgeous creations, one and all!

I know....I know.....I'm kinda obsessed with Christmas cards, but how could I resist this gorgeous digi stamp?  
I embossed a piece of mirri card with my pretty snowflakes Cuttlebug the depth it gives.......

Coloured up with PMs as per usual, and added some very fine white 'n' sparkly Art Glitter to the roof and garden.....I want to live in this cottage!!

More glitterishishness on this humungus snowyflake......

......and I wish I could take a closer peek into these ikkle windows.........I have a sneaky feeling that Mrs. Claus just might be in the kitchen, baking up a batch of gingerbread men, and that Santa himself will be sittin' in'm gettin' a bit carried away, aren't I?.......haaahaaa.....Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells.......
