Heart Clean and Simple (CAS) Favorites for the Week Ending December 22, 2013

I love Christmas cards and they are the main type of card I make so I love this time of year as there are so many beautiful ones that inspire me so much. Here are my favourites for the past week:

CAS Let it Snow! by JoBear2 - wonderful layers

IC420…Braided Wreath by HamiltonGal - ingenious use of kitchen twine

Snowflake Christmas by yorkshire lass - beautiful icy colours

IC420, Inspired by Birgit by k dunbrook - wonderfully reminiscent of my favourite winter sweater

IC420 Joy to the World by Biggan - Biggan inspired by herself and coming up with even more beauty

Classic Ornament by mandypandy - very elegant colours and design

Featuring Sandie by bon2stamp - beautiful white on white with a touch of silver

CCMC 282 by pdncurrier - the sweetest of Valentines Day cards

Quick and Simple Watercolor Poinsettia by kittie747 - perfect poinsettias with a bit of splatter

Vintage Christmas Moments by elmo98ca - Flowersoft with an old-fashioned charm

Silver Snowflake by lisaadd - CAS perfection with a gorgeous snowflake

CC457~ Vintage Floral by sistersandie - flawless use of Vintage Vogue

CCC13 October - Pennant Tree by susie nelson - great use of dp to make a Christmas tree

*TLC460 CAS251 Holiday Holly by hobbydujour - clear embossing on dark cs with wonderful accents of colour and glitter

FS358 Kindness Thank You by nancy littrell - more beautiful white on white with the embossing folder as the star of the card

Dreaming of a White Christmas by marthacreates - and gorgeous white on white again

Simple wedding congratulations by SophieLaFontaine - and one more time, this one for a wedding - I really was drawn to the white on white this week!

Stampin Up Flowerfull Heart by SandiMac - amazing use of hearts and gold


Now it's over to the rest of you. Please show me some of your favourites that I might have missed!

And a very Merry Christmas to my fellow CAS Favourites thread team and to all the wonderful CAS stampers on SCS!

Thank you, Susan, for mentioning my pennant tree. I am honored that you chose it for this week. I wish to thank everyone for this thread and for so much inspiration. I'm a shameless CASEr and always get so many lovely ideas from SCS.

One of my favorite stampers is Julie Gearinger. This week she didn't disappoint again.

Here comes Christmas, ready or not! So glad I got out of town Thursday BEFORE the weather nasties arrived this weekend.

Not a lot of time in the gallery this week but did manage to find a few more things to add to my favorites folder.

Silver Snowflake by lisaadd
I was really drawn to the color duo on this card and the beautiful die cut snowflake.

Washi Tree by Rambling Boots
This was my favorite of the several washi cards Jo posted. The fun colors and the perfect balance of white space and color caught my eye right away.

Jasper Ornament by akeptlife
Red and white and delightful fonts make me as happy as a kid in a candy shop.

I'm sure there were others that I missed, so I'll be back checking everybody else's list later this week.
