Hello!  It’s an especially exciting time at CAS Colours & Sketches this week!  Our challenge blog is five years old, and we’re celebrating with challenge #250!  To thank our challenge participants for helping us reach this amazing milestone, five lucky players in this week’s challenge will be chosen to win an in-stock clear stamp set of their choice from Uniko!   In addition, five of our design team members are giving away prizes – but you’ll need to leave a comment on their blogs to be eligible to win.   That’s ten prizes in all, in addition to our usual Weekly Winners honorees!  You won’t want to miss out on this event!  All the details are at the challenge site.

Our challenge this week features some bright, cheery colors.  I was in such a party mood that I made two cards!  I used a die to cut stars from cardstock in the three challenge colors plus black.  The die I chose created lots of little parts, which made it easy to make multiple cards using the frames from the black stars and the little pieces to fill in the design.  Some of the pieces were pretty tiny so I opted not to fill those back in.  I think the white left there provides some nice contrast.  The “merry & bright” sentiment for the Christmas card comes from our challenge sponsor, Uniko.

The “thank you” card is dedicated to all of our challenge participants and to our fantastic design team.  Without all you awesome people, the blog wouldn’t have achieved the success it has.  A big hug of appreciation goes out to all of these people for making our blog such a wonderful gathering place for fun and creativity!

We’d love to see what you can create with this week’s colors, and to have you join in celebrating with us!  Share your card at the CC&S website by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Monday, November 27.  We hope you’ll continue to join in our challenges.  Thank you to our fantastic sponsor for this week, Uniko!
