We'd like to welcome a new Designer to CAS Mix Up!
Welcome, Hideko (Papercraft Boutique)!
We are thrilled to have you on the team!

Goodbye, Julia
We are also sad today as Julia (Create with Me) is leaving
CAS Mix Up ... this will be her final month on the Design Team.
Thank you Julia, for all your hard work and amazing, inspiring cards that you've
provided for CAS Mix Up.  You will be missed!!
Thankfully, Julia isn't leaving our "family" --- see announcement below!

This month's challenge will only run for two weeks.  The challenge closes on December 15th midnight (PDST).

We are ending early this month to give the Design Team
a break during this busy time of year.

We want to thank all of you for participating in
our challenges this year.
