Welcome! We are in a celebratory mood here at CAS Colours & Sketches because this is our 500th challenge! It is amazingly incredible to think that we've been creating here for TEN years! We are extremely grateful to you, our wonderful challenge participants who have supported us, whether you have been crafting with us for many years or just a few weeks.
For our 500th challenge, we're going back through our challenges from the past 11
months and turning them into seasonal creations. Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and any other holidays celebrated this time of the year are all welcome! Or, you can create just a generic wintry card (or summery if you live in the southern hemisphere).
You can choose to make your seasonal card using any of our color,
sketch, or double challenges from 2022. You can even combine one of our sketch challenges with one of our color
challenges! The graphics from all of our challenges can be found by
on the Past Challenges tabs at the top of the page. Our usual guidelines for all of our challenges apply to this challenge. Remember to keep your card clean and simple in style!
We ask that in your blog post, you note which of our challenges you've used for
