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!!!

Back with a vengeance......

Hi everyone, well it's been nearly a month since I last blogged but we've been on a couple of "jollies"!
We had 3 lovely days with Charlie and Co in the IOW which included things mainly to do with transport!! The steam train journeys were a delight and we had a fabulous day at Robin Hill country park where there was a tractor train and lots of large wooden diggers etc to play on.

We were back a few days and then we headed off to Brixham to stay with some old friends which was slightly more restful than the IOW but definitely more alcoholic!!! Lovely weather, fab food and too much wine!
Lunch overlooking Brixham harbour and a visit to Sharpham Vineyard


 Catching up with old friends.
Back to crafting and this is a frame that I made for my friends daughter Maya. I couldn't get a good pic because of the reflection. I created the centre in craft artist and decoupaged the flowers and added a couple of flourishes. The elephants are a tattered lace die.

I have 2 friends with birthdays this week and here they are:

I've had 2 more commisions for pop up box cards one obviously for a lady and the other for a 13 year old boy mad on guitars and rock bands!

Finally Charlie is moving into a new bedroom and has requested signs for his wall including one of our local buses! I think more may be in the pipeline :0)

I hope to make a card for Less is More this week as it's Chrissie's birthday and I will be back with a wedding card and more birthday cards.
