A CAS card and some exciting news

Hi Folks
Hope you are all okay and it is now back to normality for me after the christmas and new year festivities.  2015 is set to be a good year for us.  Our eldest daughter is getting married in June to a wonderful bloke.  We are so looking forward to it and I have already started doing her wedding stationery.  I am only working four days a week now and am able to spend more time in my crafty room.  Good times indeed.

Anyway, I have some exciting news to share with you today.  I have been invited to join the new digi stamp team over at Little Claire's.  I love working with digi stamps as I find them so versatile.  We will be running montly challenges and the first monthly challenge will be on January 14th.  Make sure you check it out.

To celebrate my news I decided to make a CAS new home card using a Little Claire's stamp set called At Home which can be found here.

 As you can see I simply stamped the image and one of the sentiments onto white card.  The only colour I added was some red promarker to the hearts.  This was then matted onto some red cardstock and some polka dot ribbon added to the bottom.  

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I really enjoy reading all your comments.
