Birthday Passionette !!!

YAY !!!!!!!!!!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEKKA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello, like me title and first line of my blog post suggest a member of my wonderful Stampin'Up! team is celebrating her birthday today. Bekka is one of my career building demos and she is doing really well. This girl is the sweetest, kindest most helpful person you'll ever meet. She truly is wonderful and I am so lucky to have her in our team, she helps me more than I help her and I do feel like she is my upline an not the other way round, and for this I am eternally grateful to her. Here is the card I have made to celebrate her special day!!

Bekka's favourite colour is teal and she also loves owls, after her main love for lighthouses. Now SU have not got a owl set in the catty yet or a lighthouse one( please SU give us some owls and lighthouses for next year so I can use them for sweet Bekka's cards LOL), so instead I have used my punches and my Coluzzle system to create this little cutie. Taken With Teal, Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, Elegant Eggplant and Chocolate chip were the colours used. To make the owl I have cut an oval with my Coluzzle and then used various strips of scalloped pieces of card and overlapped them. The wings were made with the Oval punch, the ears made with the flower punch the eyes use the 3/4", 1/2" and 1/4" circle punches. The gorgeous sentiment shape was obtained from the large scallop oval punch and a craft knife. Simply cut away 2 straight lines either side of the stamped sentiment. Looks fabby doesn't it? And I'm pleased to tell you that Bekka loved her card.

Bekka I hope you have a wonderful day today and you get spoiled lots my love, big squezee hugs !!!!!!!
