Oh What a Beautiful Morning!!

 A very good morning to one and all....and what a fabulous morning it is too It's my Birthday yeah. I've been up with the lark as sun is shining and it is going to be a fabulous day. I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to HELEN & LINDA for sending me the most stunning birthday cards which I will share with you tomorrow.

I created this Crimbo card a few weeks back and thought I would share it with you this morning. You know how much i love my bug and I have loved this snowflake for ages so finally bought a couple of  months ago in preparation for the start of crimbo card session lol.

The snowflake covered in glamour dust has been suspended in the middle of the apeture cut using Nellie's Choice Multiframe dies. I embossed the the card using snowflakes embossing folder before I cut the apeture. I cut a smaller apeture using the next size down die and adhered this behind the card for a layered effect. I think you will agree that it makes a beautiful card.

Don't forget that this morning a 9 o'clock there is a new challenge set over on 

and the girls have excelled themselves again with there creations.

Well I'm off to enjoy my birthday and will catch up soon.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Ali hope you have a lovely day being spoiled by your family.

This card is stunning. All white is so stylish. I have to say that snowflake is one of my most used items. I can't begin to guess how many snowflakes I made with that die last year alone!!

Great to see you posting now and again.
