Clean and Simple (CAS) Favorites for the Week Ending December 12, 2010
It was an awesome week in the gallery, and I want to take this opportunity to congratulation our new CAS Challenge Design Team! Biggan, cindybstampin, and NancyK...y'all ROCK!
And so do all those who applied for the team, who participate in the CAS challenges, who post CAS cards, and who leave comments on CAS cards. When I think back to two years ago, before the CAS movement on SCS got going, there was not much in the gallery or forums about CAS. Now, well, there's a lot of CAS love going around, and isn't it glorious!?!?
Lots of favorites this week, despite having hardly any time to surf the gallery. Please post links to your own CAS favorites on this thread...everyone is invited to participate!

Firstly I want to give a big shout out thank you to Susan....aka....LateBlossom for starting this thread every week. I love seeing the cas's of the week as often I miss spending time in the gallery. I know so many others love coming here too so thanks Susan for all the time and effort you spend.
Next, I also want to thanks Susan for the mention of my Home for Christmas card. I so appreciate it!! I just got that stamp last week when I went to the One of a KInd Craft show in Toronto with my BFF.... Just wonderful stamps to choose from.
We are supposed to get a snow storm here today. It looks like it has already started. Good day to stay cozy and warm and finish up a few things.
Mary T/ jandjcc- It's like a Christmas present to make it to the CAS favorites thread. Thank you so much for mentioning my Wreath/Bow card among these talented stampers. Sometimes the mojo just comes on strong and something wonderful comes out of your fingers. Love when that happens.
susan, thank you so much for mentioning my flower soft card and thank you, karen, for letting me know. the only card i put in my faves this week is susan's christmas for those who mourn card. the sentiment is perfect for those of us who struggle with the holidays because of the loss of a loved one and who do not feel very merry.
What a treat Susan to be on your fav. CAS list for this week. CAS is becoming one of my favorite styles.....esp. during the busy holiday season. Thank you Karen for the heads up. You girls are the best. Happy Holidays....
Thanks, Linda, for adding my one-layer card to all the lovely cards mentioned today! I'll add my thanks to others for Susan starting this thread each Sunday, and to Karen for always letting people know. What a great community!

Thank you Susan and Linda for mentioning my card! I'm off to find some that hopefully haven't been mentioned already! Also, thank you to Susan and Karen for their work on bringing cards to our attention! I get to see some that I wouldn't have otherwise!
