They will be greatly missed but we wish them every success in whatever the future holds for them.


On a happier note we are starting our new challenge today and we'd like you to use a stencil when creating your CAS cards. This one is so simple you're sure to have fun!

And to get you all inspired Shery has made this stunning CAS card using Stamplorations supplies.
