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

and HAPPY LOVE DAY!!!!
Aww, I hope you got up to a sweet surprise from your love this morning. As this is a scheduled post I can't tell you what I got but rest assured I will let you know, my hubs is always so attentive.
Today is Sharni's Happy Birthday over at Valentines. I always think at how lovely it is for her to celebrate her birthday on V day. Sharni loves the colour Yellow and last year I made her a very muted card on a So Saffron base, but this year I thought of stepping out of my comfort zone and work with a much brighter yellow, I decided on the Summer Sun.

Funnily enough yellow was my absolute fave colour as a teenager and I was going to carry yellow roses in my bouquet on my wedding day, well I didn't!! just like I didn't went on to marry George Michael LOL. I was devastated the day he came out bless. The stamp Baroque background is one I had since it first come ( Oct.2009) out and I never used ir, or maybe only once. I can't remember but what I know for sure is that is just beautiful to work with. I paired my bright but warm yellow with Rose Red and I let the stamp do the talking . My sentiment from the Sincere Salutations was framed with a stamp form the Frame with a Flourish a few flat backed pearls from the pretties kit and I was good to go. I really like this cheery card I hope Sharni does to. And Sharni HAPPY BIRTHDAY my love I hope you will have a fabulous day.
Here a little surprise I made for hubs.

I demonstrated this technique at our team meeting this last week as well as SWUS Online, and we all made a door hanger treat holder for our men, mine is holding some chocolate covered Brazil nuts his faves.
Here is my simple card to match the holder and you see that frilly heart? I will show you in a video tomorrow just how I made it .

Colours I have used are More Mustard, Chocolate Chip and Bravo Burgundy, stamps are Just Perfect Alphabet and I cut the *WITH AL MY** words out from the Basic Phrases set. I knew there was a reason why I bought all those stamps so that I can make my own custom message one Valentine Day *wink*
Here s a close up to the holder as well

I popped the holder on the bathroom door's handle hoping he will find it. Guess what? he got up walked in, did his morning routine got dressed and out he came. NEVER SEEN IT !!! When I asked if he had seen it he replied
OF COURSE I'D SEEN IT, I JUST THOUGHT IT WAS ANOTHER ONE OF YOUR PROJECTS LAYING ABOUT THE HOUSE .... LOL
