Happy Birthday City Crafter !!! (CCCB 104)

I am wondering how you all are doing....
And I hope all is well with you!

Being away for 4 weeks.Yes I know; too long :)
Lots to share but for now I have to start somewhere and I think this weeks' challenge  at the City Crafter Challenge Blog is a wonderful way to get back to my little blog.

Kirsty and her DT are celebrating the 2nd birthday of CCCB.
and it's one of my favorite challenges to play along.
Congratulations Kirsty and the wonderful ladies of the DT!

This week the challenge is about a casing a card. 
You can go through challenge #1 to #103; make your choice and case it!

I cased one of Kirsty's cards; she made it for challenge #11 "Shades of Green"
Kirsty made this card: 

And I came up with this:

I placed my sentiment on top left:

And instead of the sentiment on the right I added  a die cut. And of course some pearls:)

A little signature on the back :) Had to show it; so cute!!!

And this is my card:

Last few weeks went by before I knew it. Besides my job I also
made a few cards, worked in the garden, spent time with family and friends, decluttered the house and did some spring cleaning, changed the menu and meals, lost some weight (and feeling much better)
Yes I have to catch up and  I will be back soon; I won't be away for another 4 weeks....

Have a lovely Sunday!

Ahhh you're back.....and with a stunning card! It's so sweet and delicate.
I'm glad you have made some changes to help you, my dear Stella. Glad you are feeling a bit better, too! I've missed you. Just happened to come over to see if I missed anything from you (even though i get your emails, but thought maybe something was wrong with that email delivery) and here you have a card! Hooray!

It's so lovely, and it always makes me feel serene to look at your creations. No exception here! Biggest of hugs, my friend.

Hee! Daar ben je gelukkig weer, ik vroeg me al af wat je allemaal aan het uitspoken was. Maar ik zie dat je je niet verveeld hebt.
Wat heb je hier weer een mooie creatie neergezet, zo zacht van kleur en subtiel van uitwerking!

Groetjes, Marjan

Beautiful card, Stella, great card to case! I miss seeing you around blog land, but glad to know that you are busy! I have eaten the second tiny tomato this year, My husband ate the first, since he will soon be gone and I will have lots to eat. Our spring is so nice and my garden has had enough rain to grow well this year! Have a wonderful Wednesday and hope you will be around again soon.
