Birthday Passionette !!!

Helloo, well like promised I am here sooner than last time when I blogged. I had a week full of birthdays. The first one on Friday was my lovely downline Jules birthday. She is the most successful member of my SU team and an extremely lovely, lovely lady, I am lucky to know her and lucky she is in my team. I have made and sent her this card



Julie s favorite colour is brown and she is also well known for her love of cupcakes, however I knew she would probably get her fair share of cupcakes cards and goodies so I went for an old favorite of mine A Rose is a Rose. I have not seen a bad card made with this set, I love it!!! I paired the ever so yummy Chocolate Chip with So saffron and Really Rust for a tone on tone effect. I used a nestie to cut a window in my chocolate layer which was embossed using a cuttlebug folder, and stamped the So Saffron layer behind the frame with the big stamp from the Fresh Cuts set. What you probably can't see very well from the picture is that the saffron layer has embossed gold edges, to do this I simply swiped a versamark pad over the edges then dip them in gold powder and heated them. Julie I hope you liked your card and I hope you had a wonderful day my love . Hugs M xx


Next I am sharing the card I have made for the SWUS weekly challenge, the theme was children birthday and I have made a card from one sister to another. I used the Big Bold Birthday stamp set

Colour scheme is a bright and girlie one, Certainly Celery, Pumpkin Pie and Regal Rose, I have used a bit of designer paper here, Sweet Always and Pumpkin Pie. The sentiment was pieced together using the Daily Flexible Phrases. I love those zingy summery shades. So have a go yourself and don't forget you can win a free pass to our next round of Stamp With us online.
Yesterday it was my good friend's Claudia s birthday as well, she lives in Seattle now and I will share her card and pressie in a post tomorrow. Clau hope you had a fabulous and Happy Birthday and the party went well. M xx
And guess what? I am heading to another family celebration in a couple of hours. Have a wonderful Sunday big hugs Monica xxx
