Hi Everyone. Hope you are having a great week. We have been trying to get the decorating finshed in the house inbetween my appointments. Was at hospital yesterday and my bloods were a bit worse than what they had been so a bit disappointing. 

So today i have something that you wont have ever seen on my blog!! A Clean and Simple card!!
This was harder to make than any fully embellished card! This is actually the second first one ended up in my little paper bin as it ended up far from CAS!!  I just find it so hard to see a card finished without adding flowers, lace, ribbon..and a lot of it!!

So here is my very first published CAS card using the most gorgeous digi stamp called a "Little Bit of Gossip" from Sugar Nellie!

I bought of few of these gogeous Sugar Nellie digis recently...they are just my kind of image..cute and girly!
I have coloured her with some Promarkers and Polychromos Pencils. Her wings and cardigan are covered in Tim Holtz Distress Glitters!

Here is a closer image of "A little bit of Gossip"

I am goign to enter my card into the following challenges including my very fist CAS Challenge!!
