Clean and Simple - Top 3

A huge thank you to everyone who entered our 

CAS challenge!

The standard was high and we really enjoyed looking at them all. 

Unfortunately there were a few that didn't match the Clean and Simple brief, so lovely as they were, they couldn't be considered for my Top 3 which is a shame as they were fab cards. 

Even so, there were lots of wonderful CAS entries, and I had a long list of favourites, it was very difficult to narrow it down, but here goes - listed in numerical order as they appeared in the challenge:

Top 3

12. Anita
Love the gentle curves of the sand and sea... the sentiment seems to lead your eye to the tree and then up into 'white space' which really fits with the theme.


86. Daizy-Mae
Love how this card looks so effortless... but think a lot of thought has gone into the planning of this card. Love the subtle colours and the contrast on the hello. Even though there is a lot of interest on this card, it has still maintained a wonderful feeling of space. 


89. My Craft Room Makes: Janice
Love the wonderful clean lines on this card, and the fab contrast created with the sentiment. The die cut pattern at the bottom adds interest and balances out everything really nicely.

Well done ladies, please remember to collect your Top 3 badges from the sidebar and display them on your blog with pride!

Team A will be back tomorrow and Mrs Duck will have another fab challenge for you. 
Best wishes,
Sue B & MAWTT DT xx

TOP 3 - Monsters/Aliens

Thank you so much for joining my Monsters and/or Aliens Challenge. 
I had a blast visiting your blogs.

Here is my TOP 3:

I love the cute little scene and the googly eyes really add that little something extra.

I love the creative fold of this colorful card and the monsters are adorable.

I love the masking and the glossy finish on top of those sweet little monsters. Such a fun birthday card.

Be sure to join our next challenge tomorrow.

Yours,

No Designer Papers - Top 3

Wow! a big thank you to everyone who entered our No Designer Papers challenge!
You sure rocked this theme... so many wonderful entries and the standard was really high.
It goes to show... we shouldn't automatically reach out for those design papers every time we craft as there are so many other ways of creating backgrounds and decorating our creations.

It was very difficult to pick a Top 3, but here goes - listed in numerical order as they appeared in the challenge:

Top 3

 8. Spiral Creativity: Raven Mask Masquerade
the colouring is awesome on this card... especially the background....beautiful shades of purple!

the white and kraft chevron die cuts, make a wonderful background here... and love the embellishments... really stunning!

this is very sweet and such a clever design... simple but so effective. Love the sparkly blue water and the wavy dies look fab. 

97. sunflower pot
and this got Wows from all the DT... do hop on over to Nidhi's website and take a closer look... what amazing quilling this is... can't stop looking at it.. way nicer than Van Gogh's Sunflowers!

Oops!!! I picked 4 winners! but I couldn't drop any of these, there were so many amazing entries this week. 
Thanks ladies, please all collect your Top 3 badges from the sidebar and display them with pride on your blog.
