Welcome!

Hello!
Welcome is the new code word at Addicted to CAS.

 
This challenge is hosted by the lovely Bhavana.
 
Here's my take on the code word:
 I immediately thought of this great sentiment from a stamp set 
I wanted to use the tiny houses to represent a neighborhood
but it was a  Memory box die and I didn't want to use it that way,
so I die cut it out of masking paper and used those tiny masks to 
make my neighborhood. 
After masking off the bottom of the card I sponged away!
 One of the great things about the distress inks is the way they react to water.
So. I dipped my hand in water and flicked my fingers and wa-la..cool looking background!
I hope it inspires you to play along !
 
'till next time,
Doni
