Special birthday.....

Hi there just popping in to show a card I've made for this weeks LIM challenge. I haven't participated for some time but this week is special!

Morning all, we've a Celebration challenge
for you this week as our super talented Leader and
Queen of CAS, Chrissie is celebrating a very
special birthday this weekend! She'll be 70 years young!

It's Recipe week and we'd like you to use Snippets
on your card yet still maintaining the CAS look!

No problem finding snippits it's trying to use them all up! I have also treated myself to a Cut n Boss machine, what a treat not having to crank the handle and it cuts perfectly. I still love my cuttlebug but am going to get rid of my Grand Calibur which I have never liked! Anyway I digress, so here is the card I made for Chrissie:

The memory box tree was in my snippets bag, already cut and I used some left over pink card to cut some butterflies from the SU embosslits die and the happy birthday sentiment which I shadowed behind some centura pearl snippets. I finished off with some cosmic shimmer pearl drops.

I am still crafting in the dining room but progress is being made as all the insulation has now been cut and fitted as well as a new floor. The main ceiling panel is in and I am begining to see light at the end of the tunnel! I will be getting rid of some of my crafting stash that hasn't see the light of day for years and looking around I can't believe it all came out of such a small space. 

Hope the weather is improving I nearly put the heating on last night!!!

Lovely snippets card to celebrate Chrissie's special birthday Val. So pretty. Weather slightly better today - at least no rain!!! It was 12 degrees yesterday and up a couple today. Couldn't believe all the people out this morning with strappy summer tops on - I was freezing (especially in the supermarket) and I had my jacket on.........crazy!

Your snippets were turned into a lovely card. It looks nice with the pink shading to the die cut sentiment.

What a fabulous project going on at home there and I can sympathise ... it's freezing and my kitchen is being re-built so the guys are working hard and leaving doors and windows open! Grrr! Perhaps I'll jog on the spot!!!
Anyway your card is utterly adorable, snippet and CAS perfect!
Thanks so much for sharing and taking part.

I love that pretty white die cut tree and the pops of pink are the perfect addition. Good luck with sorting out your craft stash, I sooo need to have a sort out and I only have a cupboard (well, it's gradually taking over the flat, not in the cupboard at all! lol)
Thanks for sharing with us.
