Birthday Passionette...........

...........Hello it was Chel's birthday yesterday !! I hope you had a Happy Birthday Michelle and I hope you didn't end up doing any decorating. You see Chel is a bit like me gets the decorating bug 4 weeks before blimmen Christmas LOL. I make all the birthday cards for my girls based on their fave colours, and Chel's favorite colours are brown and green. I have used both for her card ......in tiny amounts LOL.
here it is


A bit of Certainly Celery, Bordering Blue and an even tinier bit of Chocolate Chip to ground everything. Flight of the Butterfly stamp set was stamped in white craft ink on both Bordering Blue and Certainly Celery card cut out and mounted on a piece of Whisper White card that has been edged using the eyelet border punch. The background was stamped in white craft ink on celery using the bootiful Bella Toile( I love this background so elegant). Sentiment reads ** hope your day is as happy as it gets** how sweet is that? tiny pearls and a fabby sating bow finish off what I think is a very elegant looking card. Now I made this a while ago ( I use a birthday book to make sure I don't forget birthdays) and didn't have the matching punch at the time, I cut the flutters by hand. Michelle I hope you like it darling, big hugs xxxx
Oooo I also want to show you this...
I have treated myself to this absolutely gorgeous spottiness. The lovely and talented Jane with a posh name makes those beauties and I just had to have one as soon as I saw them. Now let's play a game which one do you think I went for? leave me a comment and do tell. Even hubs liked it. It holds tons and I have used it for the first time last night, I did a workshop for a bunch of excited ladies, hello Lorraine and everyone I hope Doris still has the red nose LOL.
Ok I am off to bed early tonight as I have had a hard week and I am v tired, speak soon have a great weekend.
Not enough time to load the video but..............soon. Big hugs Monica xxx
