Is really cold!!

Hello, gosh is it just up here that the weather 's turned for the worst again? I ve been blooming freezing yesterday ( mind you I did jump into my summer shoes already, so partly my fault LOL).
I have a little card for you today, well I was waiting to publish this card for like a week now, this was the card I made to welcome another Passionette to the fold. Dawn signed up during Sale a bration and she was one of my best customers. I am so glad she decided to join in the end as she will save herself ( and Mick) a lot of pennies.


Now this card never made it to Dawn ( RM is not my friend at the mo) which is why I waited for so long to announce her but I will make another one to send her for sure. Combo is Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue and Cameo Coral. stamp set is *A Beautiful Thing*. A soft combo for this card that I love the look of, however working with pastels is not really me so it was a bit challenging to make them work but I am pleased with the outcome. Dawn I wish you all the best with your new venture sweetheart and I am so glad to have you in our team.
Next is a card I have made using some chipboard and this will go to a fellow demo that has helped me out yesterday( you know who you are and I am grateful to you ). Chipboard is on offer for March and you get a fabulous deal, a cool 25% off, I don't use it often for my cards even though I should cos is so quick and versatile, but I do use it for my scrapbook pages mini books and the likes, it is a wonderful medium as there is so much you can do to it to change is appearance and this offer has made me think of something way cool for a project, and if I can pull it off I will show you later in the week. Anyway here it isUnusual combo, Really Rust, Sage Shadow, Certainly Celery and Bordering Blue, BUT the blue was coated with dazzling diamonds and the colour does look very different which is why I think it works here. The chipboard medallion was coloured using and ink pad then heat and stick powder was adhered to it using versamark quickly heated and dazzling diamonds poured over, very glam, the coordinating strip was made running the Snail adhesive over it and again dazz. diamonds rubbed into the adhesive. Stamp set used is True Friend, sentiment belongs to pocket Silhouettes.
You probably remember that I had a workshop at my house last Friday, well what a scream that was they were still here at midnight, we really had a fab time and I have ended up dragging my entire collection downstairs as they just wanted to see/ touch everything and Joanne decided that she just has to be a demo herself and joined my team there and then. So the Passionettes stand at 56 members, but 2 nights ago Karen decided to join(Yay!!!) and Jayne too( Woohoo!!) and yesterday my sweet Ali informed me that she will sing up soon( HOORAY!!) so before you know it our team is going to be at 60 members which is just incredible. Now of course I dont want you to think that all this members are on my 1 st level because they're not, we are spread over 3 tiers and my direct Passionettes are leading successful teams of their own which is fantastic!! They all work very hard and the results are sure showing, so if you're pondering wheter to go for it or not have a chat with me, none of my members struggle to reach their minimums wich is probably the biggest fear a new demo has with my help and guidance and with some commitment from you, I can show you how to have fun while you earn money from this. Email me as ever at telemech01ataoldotcom, and who knows you might be my number 60 . Here s the card they all made on the night Rose Red, Certainly Celery and Barely Banana, Polka dot punches stamp set and the gorgeous sentiment is from Wonderful Words. Lots of hugs Monica xxx
