Here is what Loll had to say about your card -

"I literally gasped when I saw this amazing card made by Chrissie.  The colours of the butterfly are so beautiful, and then with the gold embossed dots on top, it is just stunning.  The embossed butterfly border and gold embossed sentiment add depth and texture to make this a work-of-art in a card.  Thanks for sharing this beautiful card with us Chrissie!"

Well! It's been a huge year with plenty of inspiration. This is our last challenge for 2014 - you will still have 2 weeks to link up bringing you up until the 27th December.

We will be back in 2015 starting with our first challenge on the 17th January (my son's 20th birthday, oh my lord). 

Before we get on to our challenge, we have some fond farewells for the Design Team ladies who are stepping down. This will be their last post for Addicted to CAS and we are surely going to miss them.

Thank you all for your amazing and inspiring creations. You are going to be missed here at ATCAS and wish you all the best. See you around blog land!

As you know, in conjunction with our last challenge we held a DT call. I have so many applications to go through - so amazing!! Thank you to all of you for your interest. I only have a handful of positions to fill so it is going to be very hard to narrow it down! Everyone will be emailed in the next couple of days to let you know if you were successful or not :)

Right! Onto our challenge!

Our fabulous and amazing hostess this week is Shana and here is the code word she has chosen for you -

A great code word for this time of the year! Interpret the code word to your liking but just remember to keep it Clean and Simple!

Challenge #53 & DT CALL DT CALL DT CALL

Welcome to another Saturday which means a brand new challenge here at ATCAS.

We love you Marie!!!!
