Clean and Simple (CAS) Favorites for the week ending November 27, 2011
 
Hello CAS Stampers,

This is my first week as one of the new team of stampers who will be taking turns to start the CAS Favourites thread. I'm thrilled as there are so many fabulous cards this week - it was hard to keep my list to a reasonable number and leave some for the rest of you to list!

So please, jump right in and list your CAS Favourites from the past week. It's a great way to give recognition to your fellow stampers.

Here are mine:

Reddyisco was inspired by a child's headboard to make this lovely soft card: Reddyisco:IC312

Biggan used twine to create an amazing container for punched flowers: IC312 Use of Twine by Biggan

atsamom chose perfect colours and a button accent for a Thanksgiving wreath: CAS Thanksgiving Wishes by atsamom

I am full of admiration for kittie747's wreath cards. Here she used this week's sketch challenge brilliantly: Peaceful Wreath by kittie747

I love the way tropduck combined flourishes and flowers in Christmas colours: easy peasy! by tropduck

catherinep used a perfect piece of dp behind a punched ornament: #3 in the series by catherinep

hobbydujour put her brayer and spattered paint to good use to make this peaceful snowy scene: CC350 TLC352 Trees by hobbydujour

The Sound of Music inspired Tilly to create this bit of kraft perfection: Brown paper packages tied up with strings by Tilly

tommygirloz used a simple background stamp to create a brilliant window: CAS145, TLC352 Merry Christmas by tommygirloz

die cut diva layers silver glitter paper perfectly with a punched snowflake and an embossed border: Sparkly Snowflake by die cut diva

What a wonderful week this was! Many of the CAS creations that I loved have already been shared, but here are a few more:

Loll Thompson's Lone Winter Tree is breathtakingly serene
Mrs Noofy made a beautiful split image card with Simple Black and White
Understandblue gave me a giggle with her CAS take on the technique spotlight in her What Happens card
stagccva's Warm Chocolate Hugs is delicious!
elmo98ca's Let it Snow nearly took my breath away
(I know that most of you have seen the last two from the weekly CAS challenge, but I think they deserved a little extra love this week!)
jimlynn used One Big Button on her way to CAS loveliness
hobbydujour's Nuthatch card goes very old school with technique
Bon2Stamp's Stately Stag is a winter beauty
whim6915 made a Christmas card that is simply elegant
Cindy H's Quite the Pair is quite the card
bfinlay's Cozy Christmas certainly warmed me inside
3 Little Love Bugs made another drop-dead gorgeous Snowflake card
nancy litrell's DT challenge card Birthday Gifts eased her into the finals
and Stampercamper used such a beautiful combination with the sketch challenge in Grateful Heart

Thanks Susan for starting the thread today and Karen for your tireless dedication to keeping everyone in the loop. Thanks to all of you who post cards - especially CAS for your inspiration. Have a peaceful week.
