Happy 4th Birthday xx

Hello to everyone the weather here has been so much better today and no rain but the forecast for tomorrow is really bad and looks like DH wont be at work!!!

Today I have a few picture to show you so I'm sorry its a bit photo heavy!!

The Craft Den is celebrating its fourth Birthday today and is having a week of celebrations which also include a sale table with some fab bargains! Tomorrow Kay will be doing demo's with Indigo Blu stamps see here on the Craft Den Blog!

Here is the little card I made for Lynne to celebrate.
My design today is a cross over which I have covered with Prima papers.
Used an EK success border punch which I have inked the edges.
Love the window its the boutique stamp from magnolia coloured with pro markers and I have added Craft Den cut out on my cricut with the "Story Book" cartridge.
These beautiful topiary trees and the wine cooler are also from Magnolia just love all the accessories you can get! 
Also cut out a large number four and yes cut out more flowers for the front to go with this beautiful feather and pins!! 
Here is my little craft room as you can see its very small when it was a bedroom it was only big enough for a shortie bed and my girls are both really tall do as they got older they really didn't appreciate it!! lol 
I don't know why but these last few weeks I have felt really claustrophobic in there crafting so I have moved out some of the shelves! 
The three door wardrobe is full but I can't show you at the moment its a mess on and I'll let you into a secret the pink and white drawer Rochelle gave me and at the moment they are "FULL" of my Magnolia collection !!! LOL 
These shelves I have moved into Danielle's old room in the gab as it really was too over powering in my little room!

So today I have crafted and even though I have had to go to and fro to fetch things I have felt much better and it looks so much more organised and I have my Cricut on the drawers so its ready to go so much better then setting it up every time I want to play!!! 

Challenges I am going to enter:

Just Magnolia - Spring Shades
Simply Magnolia - 2 Stamps

Well that's me for today might go and play again or do the ironing oh my decisions, decisions!!! lol

Love & Hugs Chanelle xx
