Hi lovely friends, followers and bloggers - thank you so much for visiting! 
Wow - we are already into the second challenge of 2014 at Addicted to CAS - how quickly the time flies.

In keeping with the "New Year", our talented  Teamie and Host, Shana, chose this Code Word ~

 You can interpret the Code Word in any way you wish, but please remember, to be eligible for a winner's prize your card design must be 
CLEAN AND SIMPLE with lots of empty space!

Here is my take on the Code Word ~

Gingham paper - Pink Petticoat
Vintage Pram - Anna Griffin stamp
Black Archival ink
Spellbinders circle die
Sentiment - "New Baby" set by Kars
SU Linen Thread
Border punch - Fiskars
Our sponsor this fortnight is Deedee's Digis - our winning CAS Perfectionist
will receive 3 Deedee's digi sets of their own choice.

Looking forward to seeing your Clean and Simple creations!
I would like to enter my card into the Less is More "Baby" Challenge.
(Sorry Chrissie and Jen -  I know it's a while since I joined in)!

Wow lovely Bloggers - doesn't Christmas come and go in a flash!  It  seems like only yesterday  I was decorating the tree, and now it's almost time to take it down, which always makes me feel rather sad (Awwww)!!
Anyway, I hope you are ready to join us at ATCAS, for our very first Challenge of 2014!

Our lovely Hostess is the very talented Loll who has chosen this  Code Word .....

So, we would like you to use Die(s), and, as always, the design must be
Clean and Simple, with plenty of open space!
Here is my DT card - do pop over to ATCAS to see what the talented Teamies have created, and leave them some lurve!

I have used the Memory Box Prim Poppy die and a Spellbinders Small Classic Squares die.
The colouring behind the aperture was created on a separate piece of white cardstock, using  Distress inks, then lightly spritzed with water.
 I  die-cut one Poppy from a left-over piece of the inked card, and placed it on the left.
A second Poppy was cut from white cardstock and placed inside the aperture.
The sentiment stamp is another of my old, all-time faves - from PSX (1999), inked with SU Smoky Slate - a beautiful soft colour.

Our generous Sponsor is Deedees Digis  - the winner will receive 3 Digi sets of their own choice.  Deedee has some amazing digi images, and it's well worth
popping over there to take a peek!

I would like to enter my card into the Allsorts challenge - "Free and Easy".

Thanks for popping by ~
