CAS at the Outlaws.

I have been wanting to play along with the Clean and Simple Challenge over at the Outlaws for a while now.  I finally got around to doing a challenge!  And, well I made it just in time for this weeks challenge. There will be a new one tomorrow.  This weeks challenge was to use absolutely no design paper but to stamp your background.  I had this background stamp from CTMH.  I thought it looked Christmasey.  I used my Ippity Stamps I got from my Ippity Chick Rona.  What you should know is how fabulous these stamps are.  Super nice deep etched Rubber!!
I hope this is considered CAS!  
The background stamp was stamped with cranberry ink and the tree's were stamped with english ivy both from CTMH.
I used copics to color the trees and some spica to give a little glitter that is really hard to photograph.
Have you been to the Outlawz lately.  We have some fabulous sponsors this month.  I hear a little rumor that we may have a big giveaway when we hit 1000 members and we are not that far off so you will want to keep an eye out for it!!
I am going to also enter this over at
Crafty Emma's challenge which is Christmas.
Addicted to Stamps has Christmas as it's challenge.
Stamp Something also has Christmas.

Hi Brenda...this is really nice: right up my street! I LOVE that background stamp, even digi-loving me can appreciate a great bit of rubber (and in this case only rubber would have done!) Addicted to stamps and Stamp Something have Christmas as their challenge theme...why don't you go and enter there, it's so beautiful it really needs to be shared! Dee
