Challenge 457 - Photo Inspiration

 Hey LIMettes!


Well it's that time of year again because we are giving the hardworking design team December off, so this is our last challenge of the year.  

It's also a time to say a huge 'thank you' and 'goodbye' to some of our members. We're very sad to be losing Izzy, and Elaine also moved on earlier in the year. They have given you all lots of inspiration during their time here. Sadly we will also be losing Anita, who has been with the challenge for many years. She has been a rock for myself, and Sarah when she ran the challenge, because Anita took on some of the background tasks in running the challenge. Her style helped firmly secure what CAS means for so many people. As you know, I (Sharon) will also be moving on but I will try to keep the challenge going until Kylie is ready to take over. I'm not sure what date things will be up and running in 2022 (it is dependent on lockdown situations and flights) so please pop in from time to time to see if there is any news on that.

Anyway, to the challenge. For a change we have a photo for you to take inspiration from.

Challenge #456 - Silhouette

 Hey LIMettes!


Wow! We have been overwhelmed with your wonderful messages of support and we won't keep you in suspense because we have some fabulous news! Our very own Kylie has stepped up and agreed to keep this challenge running for a little longer. Isn't that brilliant?  Kylie runs quite a few challenges and she's superb at CAS so the challenge will be in very safe hands.  I'm sure you will all give her lots of support. For the time being I'll (Sharon) keep the challenge going until she can take the reins which will probably be next February. 

So now that the panic is over, lets all enjoy a wonderful new challenge. Come on LIMettes, break out those fabulous silhouette stamps for us.

Challenge #455 - Winter Whites

Hey LIMettes!

Do you, or anyone you know, have experience of running a card making challenge? Would you like to take on the running of the Less is More challenge?  If so, we would love to hear from you because if we cannot find anyone to carry on this lovely challenge it will need to close its doors at the end of this year. That would be such a shame. So if you think this is something that you would like to do, please get in contact with us and let us know what experience you have - our email address is over on the right 👉


Anyway, we're back with our latest challenge which is a lucky dip as it's the third challenge in the month.
