Default CAS179 - Using Twine (7/16/12)

~A Letter from Miss Boo~


It is with great sadness that this will be my last CAS challenge as a hostess. I discovered SCS back in 2005 (known as jen70) and shortly after became involved in hostessing one of the original weekly challenges: The Limited Supply Challenge on Fridays. During that time, I also hostessed many VSN challenges and possibly a VSBN challenge or two. I created the idea of the Featured Stamper challenge while doing the LSC and got it up and running as a weekly challenge on Sundays before handing it over to Beth. In 2008, I took a break from hostessing for a few months during which time I became known as 'Miss Boo.' And as you all know, I was encouraged to start the CAS challenge in February of 2009. It's been a lot of fun! I started using design teams right away for CAS challenges. Back then, design teams for individual companies were all the rage but CAS was not. This challenge opened that door. About a year later, themed design team search challenges started along with having guest stampers. I quickly found out that I was in over my head. That's when Denise (resqbarbie) stepped in and saved me! LOL! Denise has been a wonderful addition to our CAS challenges as a co-hostess and orginizer for the guest designers. She is a creative card maker and leaves wonderful comments. I'm thrilled she will be your new weekly hostess!

So why is this happening now?

The past few months have been very difficult for my family and me and I finally realized that I need to minimize my volunteer roles. I've been hostessing SCS challenges for 7 years and I feel burned out. Whether that's longevity, real life issues or both, our design teams and players deserve more than I can give right now. I'll still be around making cards and hopefully I'll get back into scrapbooking. I'm seriously behind! So you haven't gotten rid of me completely.

It's because of you that the CAS challenges have been so successful and I've had a lot of fun along the way. Thank you for being so supportive and encouraging. You're all wonderful! (Especially all of you who have learned to like the color ORANGE! LOL!)

Hugs and happy stamping,
Jen


***********************************************

Please keep the CAS challenges limited to cards only.
Thank you!


***********************************************

What is CAS?
CAS is an acronym for Clean and Simple.

It's all about the design.
* not the technique
* not the tools
* not the embellishments

It's all about the design.
* Uncluttered
* lots of white or open space
* one main focal point

It's all about the design.

Clean & Simple


*********************************************

I have known Jen for many years, we both have hostessed for VSN many times and when she asked me to co-host the CAS challenge with her I was honored. It has helped me find my true stamping style in CAS. Jen is a wonderful person, a great stamper and a dedicated team player! It has been my pleasure to be a Co-hostess with Jen. I will miss working with her very much. I am looking forward to carrying on her challenge and staying true to her CAS vision!

Thank you to all of you who participate n the CAS challenge...I hope you continue to play along with us!

XOXO Jen!

WoW Jen.
Don't worry, we all totally understand!
Your dedication and time spent here is so appreciated.
I have seen a LEAP in CAS since this challenge started and its such a great style!
You might be pleased to know that I have also seen more use for the color orange because of you!
What a great challenge you started and we all know you put a HUGE amount of time and effort into this. Well beyond anything that is required. (And seeing as it is a volunteer position - you were really required to do nothing!)
Thanks SO MUCH and we wish you all the best!
Happy stamping and scrapbooking!

OMG Jen.....I have such mixed feelings! It is because of you that CAS has even become a style and especially a very popular style. Thank you, thank you for your years of dedication, creativity and unselfish giving to all of us.

We all certainly understand why you need to simplify your life and wish you all the best. You have left us in excellent hands with Denise.

Looking forward to more......just for fun creativity from Miss Boo. Your friend and fan, Nancy

Thanks, Jen for all your dedication to the CAS Challenges. You have given so much to the crafting community here at SCS and please know that it is so appreciated. I didn't even know what CAS was until about a year ago ... you have opened my eyes to a fabulous style of card that I now embrace as my own. Thank you so much!!

Thank you so much, Jen, for all your years of hard work on the CAS Challenge. I've learned so much from doing the challenges and from seeing all the cards the other stampers post for your challenges. I'm glad you'll still be posting cards to continue to inspire us.

And thank you to Denise for stepping in and keeping it going!

Oh Jen...YOU WILL BE MISSED!!! You have done such an incredible job getting the CAS challenge (my very favorite here on SCS) up and running and turned into a very popular challenge with a very faithful following! I can't image doing as much as you have done here on SCS over the past 7 years - INCREDIBLE!!! Take care of yourself and your family! Like I said...YOU WILL BE MISSED!!!

Jen - It will be hard to imagine a CAS challenge without the "Miss Boo" avatar! I am so glad that you started the challenge as I think the CAS style appeals to me more than any other. Thank you for the time and dedication to this site - it is what makes it such a special place!
I hope that your family sees more of you now!! But I also look forward to seeing your cards here - without the added pressure of being coordinator.
Thanks for all you do!

(hugs)

It is with sadness that I bide farewell to you as challenge leader, Jen. You have done an "above & beyond" job with the CAS. I think it is being realized now that a "design team" is a better plan of action. It doesn't put the burden on just one person. I marvel and admire you gals who did it by yourselves for YEARS!! May you have cool breezes and warm sunshine in your days ahead. Thank you!!

I may not know you as well as a lot of others, but I thank you for your dedication and consistent work here. We have all been affected by the CAS, and you have created a beautiful trend. I wish you some well deserved peace, and more energy for other things. Thanks Jen!!

Jen, we will so miss you!! I've been lurking on SCS since it's inception, but it was the CAS challenges that gave me the courage to participate. The gift of your time has been a precious one and we are grateful.

You've passed the mantel into very capable hands!! Congrats, Denise!! Thanks for taking on the leadership role!

Love to both of you!

Jen, I don't know you so well, but I feel like I do because I see you every week. You will be missed! I LOVE CAS!! and the color orange! Is that your fault? LOL I think you are making the right decision. My family has also been over extended in the volunteer area, and it can really make life hard and stressful. I wish you all the best! You may find that you start going to your craft room with a new excitement now that you aren't over seeing anything. You can just go, create, and play. Maybe even get some of that scrapbooking done! I'm still scrapping 2004's pics! LOL I need caught up too. I wish you all the best and happiness. I also look forward to seeing your creations when you have time. Thanks for all you've done!

Jen, you will be sorely missed. It was because of you and this challenge that I learned how to embrace CAS. And, Denise, congrats on becoming the new hostess. You will do a great job!

Here is my card -- Thank You

BTW, I have always loved orange!
