Hello lovely bloggers - many thanks for popping by!

Our new challenge at ATCAS is a rather special one - the Code Word may give you a hint!

 Yes - we would love you to help us celebrate the FIRST ANNIVERSARY of Addicted to Clean and Simple! It's one year since our wonderful leader, Kylie, started the ATCAS challenge blog, and I'm sure you will agree - she has done an amazing job! 
Your Hostess this fortnight is the fabulous Marie  and because this is a special occasion, there will be some extra gifts for our CAS Perfectionist, plus 3 sheets of digis from our generous Sponsor, Deedee's Digis.   Your card design can be for any kind of anniversary, as long as it's CAS, with lots of "white space".  Full details HERE.

 and here is my DT card -
Recipe ~
Indigo Blu "Tree-mendous" stamp
Kaleidacolour  Fruitcake ink pad
SU sentiment - Memorable Moments set
SU red Glimmer Paper and Woodware heart punch plus hand-drawn "string"!
Pin-pricked border.
We are also starting a new feature at ATCAS - a new Guest Designer will join us each month, and our first Guest Designer is the very talented Bonnie Klass ... welcome to the team Bonnie!

Look forward to seeing you all at the Anniversary Party!
