Time to Happy Dance ....

Hi All I'm here super early, in the UK, 
well hopefully Mr Blogger is 'here' on my behalf to make a 
LITTLE announcement and I'm squealing with delight because
I've been invited to join the brilliant design team over at 

Addicted to CAS
Displaying Addicted to CAS Design Team badge.jpg

I can't wait to get stuck in and join the party in a few weeks time!
The 4th July to be exact and what a fantastic day to celebrate a new team. 

There's lots of amazing talent already and some new faces too.
I can't wait to get to know them all and I do hope you'll stop by 
the ATCAS blog HERE to check out the new team.

So it wouldn't be a proper post without a card to share so 
I've made a card to join the current ATCAS challenge - Butterfly

I've used the sketch from the current challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch
so I'll be hopping across there when the alarm goes off!

I can't get enough of these gorgeous butterflies from Clearly Besotted
which are heat embossed in WOW: Brass sparkle along with the
outer frame and the die-cut 'Happy' from Hero Arts
The images are water coloured with Stabilo Markers with a 
delicate washed background of Cracked Pistachio distress ink.

Thanks as always for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
