ATS&M Challenge #59 - CAS (Nicecrane Designs Sponsor)

Hello again dear friends and followers!  Time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! (ATS&M) - CAS #59.  Our challenge this week is once again sponsored by the wonderful and generous owner of Nicecrane Designs.  We are continuing our August Challenges with a Twist so that means if you choose to use a Nicecrane Designs image then you can make any style card (or project) you wish (it doesn't have to be CAS).  I chose to stick with CAS and use one of the newest digital images from the set called Reading Children (thanks so  much Ignacio) - take a look:
Isn't she just so sweet? I was immediately drawn to this image because as a girl I always had my nose in a book (still do when I'm not crafting) and my own sweet daughter is the same way (LOVE that!).  One of my favorite books was Little Women, and I loved all the Nancy Drew mysteries.  Now I love the Janet Evanovich series that starts with "One for the Money" (I have ready every one of them so far) and books by Mary Higgins Clark - oh and of course some romance novels when I'm in the mood :o).  Lately though my nose is usually under the People magazine that has fallen on my face (to muffle my snoring) as I've tried to read in bed.

I hope that you will decide to join us this week at ATS&M. Our fabulous DT has created some amazing cards to share with you as well - so please go take a look and leave them a little note (we love to hear from you).

I also decided to make a one-layer card, which I haven't done in a very long time, so I am entering this in The Paper Players Challenge #159 One Layer Card.

As a side note...I will be taking a small break and won't be around much in the blogging world for a couple weeks. I'll tell you more about it all when I return to blogging.  Til next time... hugs and happy crafting! D

Copic colors used are: E17 and E19 (hair), E000, E01 and E02 (skin), BG72 (dress), C1 (pages and sox), C7 (bottom of shoes), and G09 (book). The sentiment is from Close to My Heart.
