Simply Less is More # 234

Hello There,
WOW, it`s still saturday and here I am. Not only have I made my card, I`m posting it too. Now that`s something that doesn`t happen very often !!!

First though I`d like to welcome my latest follower, Sandma. Thank you for choosing my little blog, I really do appreciate it x

So, this weekend over on Simply Less is More it`s the boss`s 70th birthday, Happy Birthday Chrissie. We also have a guest designer, Di from Pixie`s Crafty Workshop. 
Di also runs the snippet challenge on her blog and the remit is to use snippets on our cards this week, while keeping them CaS with lots of white space.
I used to join in with the snippets challenge regularly but this past year I`ve been a bit negligent, something I must put right.
So, onto my card,

I started with these scraps of card and DP

and came up with this.

I`m not sure if Shabby Chic is supposed to go with CaS but I like it.
Really quick and simple design.
I made a tent fold white card base and a panel slightly smaller.
I cut the snippets into various widths and lengths and used a nestie square die to cut the fish tails.
The sentiment is by Wplus9 stamped and embossed in silver EP, then cut to size and fish tailed.
I`ve finished off with some tiny clear gems and there you have it.

Nice quiet weekend planned this week so hopefully more crafting will occur. Ruby and her parents have taken themselves off to Cumbria for a few days to stay with friends. I just hope they are having better weather than us :)

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
