Birthday Passionette !!!

Heloooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!

Yes I am back in fact I have been back exactly a week today, and to start off the first few days were busy getting back to normal and worked every single day too, but then disaster struck and I fell poorly (AGAIN!! roll eyes) with a stinking cold and although bad, it was not even close as bad as my last one. So this is the reason why I was so quiet, just didn't feel like doing much. I did however managed to get one card done for a fabby Passionette of mine who celebrated her Happy Birthday yesterday. The girlie in question is the ever so cute Sharni, so I apologise to you sweetie for not blogging about your happy day yesterday, but like I said I was just not up to it after my class in the morning. This is the card I have made for her


Sharni loves yellow, and I worked on a Yoyo yellow combo for a whole day before I decided is very hard to make this colour look good so I switched to So Saffron and I am more happy with the result. So Saffron base stamped with the distressed background, Basic Gray textured card stock was punched with my Fiskars Threading water punch, and the flower heads from the sale a bration sets Botanical Blooms were stamped in Basic Gray and watercoloured using Barely Banana, So Saffron and Summer Sun Stampin Write markers. I attached a small crystal in the center of each bloom and layered them over coordinating circles punched out using the 1", 1 1 /4", 1 3/8"circle punches. I have pricked a zigzag edge on my whisper white layer using the mat pack and drew some So Saffron stitches using the marker. Basic gray taffeta ribbon was tied in a bow and the sentiment came from the Sincere Salutations stamp set. I hope Sharni like it and I hope she had a fabulous day. M xx


I taught a class locally yesterday morning and we made an Easter card and a sweet carrier container based on the milk carrier one that Jo has kindly shared on her blog. I have altered mine to house 2 of those little shot glasses and filled them with Cadbury mini eggs. the class was well received and the ladies fell in love with the Botanical blooms stamp set that you can earn for free by simply placing a qualifying order of £45.00. This set is my favourite for sure and I have used it loads already as you ve probably noticed lol. Here s a photo of the items


How sweet are those colours together? Certainly Celery, Regal rose and So Saffron, Botanical blooms SAB sets and sentiment from Seasonal Whishes. I also used the Yummy stamp set to add a label to the front of my little carrier, this was stamped in black then using the solid images from the Botanical I've stamped over the label picking up the colours used in the project.

I am busy with a wedding cake for next Saturday but I will try and blog some more till then. Hugs Monica xxx

Hi Monica, I've tried emailing you last week re an order but haven't heard anything back, I believe there are some problems with AOL at the moment so that might be it.
I just need to know what my order total is - I want to pay by Paypal.
Cheers, Susan.
