We have had a wonderful CAS year, haven't we. I know I have some wonderful cards in my favorites folder that I have to say are my "best of 2012". This thread is for you to share the awesomeness of the year with all of us.
And what does it mean to be Clean and Simple? It's all about the design.

* one main focal point
I have reduced what's in my favorites folder twice this year, and I'm down to 73 cards. No, I am not going to list all 73! But I'm selecting from those this morning. So, start the drum roll...here's my selection of CAS from the year that really says "WOW" to me...
I also wanted to say thanks for a great year of CAS beauties and to all the people that take the time to list their favs. So often in our busy lives, we don't get to check out the galleries so it is great that we can come here every week and see what we may have missed.
HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone and looking forward to being, once again, inspired.

Thanks so much Diane for starting the CAS FAV's for 2012 Thread. It has been the most incredibly inspiring CAS year. Thanks to all the team who starts the weekly CAS Fav. Thread, but for me the BIGGEST THANKS goes to "Karen" for notifying all the CAS Stampers that they have been chosen as a Favorite CAS Stamper
I will be back later with my list. Happy New Year to all...

Thanks, Susan (susanbri), for favoriting my Elemental Thank You. I am humbled and honored that you chose one of my cards out of so many as I had never done a cas card until this year and I still feel like I am learning!
Karen, thank you so much for letting me and so many others know of this honor today and throughout the year.
I did not realize that there would be a CAS Favorites for the year, so all of my cards, including CAS were included in my Favorites of the Year thread that was started over the weekend. I guess you can say I have already paid it forward! Happy New Year!
A BIG thank you and group HUG, Diane, Brenda, Susan, Nancy, Loll and Gail! You can't imagine the inspiration and encouragement you have given me. CAS is the style I admire the most(I find it more difficult to do "less is more"), and it has taken me a LONG time to come to the point where I think I "get it". Your listings really warm my spirit. Thank you.
Karen, to you goes a VERY SPECIAL "Thank You" and "You are appreciated". Single-handedly you notify each and every mentionee in a timely manner EVERY Sunday. I'm always impressed by this. You are "Sunshine Bringer #1" of SCS.
Thanks to the WHOLE team who make this the very special thread that it is. You are appreciated!

Gail, Thank you so much for mentioning my tulip card in this year end favorite event. I appreciate it so much especially since I am not really so good at CAS. I always seem to keep adding and adding. LOL Happy New Year.
Thank you sooooooo much Lisa for including me in your CAS faves, it means so much more when one of my card making idols mentions one of my cards, thank you. and a huge thank you to you Karen for notifying me, much appreciated.
