Hello and Happy New Year!!
It's a new year, and a ner decade, and time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS. Our Code Word for ATCAS Challenge #176 is FROSTY, and I am the hostess!

Our Guest Designer is the amazingly talented Julie Beech of Crafted By Jules. Julie is such a great designer and a lovely person. Take a stroll through her blog for a heap of wonderful inspiration - you will be so glad you did.

For my card, I chose this red rubber, wood mounted stamp from deep, deep in my stash (Hero Arts, I think). The funny thing about it is that it is a snowman sitting on a frosted cupcake - hence the "frosty". Just cracks me up somehow. I have a weird sense of humor... So had to use it for this code word that I chose. I stamped the image on the card base, then stamped it again, colored it with Copics, and fussy cut it out. I then mounted with with foam tape to give it some dimension. I added some shadowing beneath the image,a nd some glitter pen snow. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

Please head on over to the ATCAS Challenge Blog, take a look at the wonderful inspiration pieces Julie and the Design Team have created for your inspiration, and make something to share in the gallery. Challenge winner will be offered a Guest Designer spot for a future challenge. Happy crafting!

Please remember that this is a CAS challenge. Here is a definition to remind you:

Don't think YOU are weird, Steph... I thought the code word was frosting, and got SO excited I made a batch!!
He's darling - and I'll so bet he licks that cupcake when you're not looking!!!

OK... so this made me laugh! I love the idea of a frosted snowman on a frosted cupcake. Now that is thinking outside the box. I LOVE IT!
