Challenge #103 - Wish

Happy New Year everyone! After an extended break, we are so happy to be starting 2017 with our Clean & Simple Challenges!

We certainly love providing inspiration for you, and we hope you'll play along with us! A few weeks ago, we announced two new DT members...I know they are excited to join us, so please feel free to stop by their blogs to say hello!

and 

Your Hostess for this fortnight is Anja, and this is the Code Word she has chosen to challenge you:



We all have at least one special wish, and most likely a few goodies in our arsenal to create something fabulous for this challenge. Please use this word however it inspires you, but be sure to keep your design Clean & Simple!

We have a wonderful Sponsor joining us again in 2017:


A big thank you to Create A Smile for their generosity and continued support!

Our first Guest Designer for 2017 is incredibly talented, and there is no doubt that you are already familiar with her CAS style. She is also the winner of Challenge # 101!



Hello, I'm Michelle. I am a university biology tutor from Melbourne, Australia, but I'm also a chorister, a bookworm, a lover of Disney and a science nerd. Card making is my main love, though. You can find me on InstagramPinterestFacebook and at my blog. It is a real pleasure to be a guest designer at ATCAS

Cheers,

Here we go with our inspiration...

Katrina's warm and cozy snowman throwing heartballs stole my heart.  I thought it was such a wonderfully creative way to use a traditional Christmas element and focus it on a winter wedding.  The blending and masking is perfection and the joyful look on the snowman's face makes me so happy.  Perfect card for a winter wedding.
