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

Hello everyone, I am tempted to ask how was your weekend but is nearly Wednesday so a bit pointless really LOL. Mine has gone by in a flash with work on Saturday then our Quarterly Team Training in Peterborough on Sunday and before I knew it Monday was upon me and it was back to reality. Anyway I am excited as is Bank holiday weekend next and it means I can rest a bit, oh hang on I forgot!! this Sunday IS THE START OF STAMP WITH US ONLINE , so this means that we will kick off the party with a fun live chat and a few surprises. Is hard to believe that we are approaching our first birthday, so exciting . And this doesn't mean my peaceful weekend is shattered because I can take part in my jim-jams with a large glass of wine in hand. I cannot wait!! why don't you join us? to do so click on the above link then on the buy now button.
Today is Linda's Happy Birthday, Linda is one of my original Passionettes she has been with me right from the start when I just started building my team and she is the most kind and wonderful human been, very quiet (unlike moi) and every time I am around her she brings this calm upon me for all of a 10 seconds LOL. No honestly she is a sweetheart and I am lucky to have her in my team.
Now Linda's fave colour is black so this was a blessing for me because you can pretty much put anything with black and it will look stunning. Here's the card I made for her


I teamed the Night and Day dotty black paper with Pink Passion ( how am I going to live without this wonderful pink after October?) and Old Olive and chose to use the bird punch in a different way. There are many types of flowers that you can make with the wing of the birdie and I simply layered some petals and made some kind of a futuristic bloom. I really like how it turned out, this punch is so very versatile I just love it. New Old Olive satin ribbon which is lush as it ties so beautifully and Circle of Friendship sentiment. I haven't used this in ages but I still like it.
Here's a close up for you

I added dimensionals to the flowers only which meant the stems where left floating and poking out.
Don't you just love those colours? mmm I do and I hope Linda you do to. I also hope you had a wonderful day with your lovely family .
Right I am off now as I am trying hard to get my craft room sorted and tidied up. Come back soon as I will share what we got up to at our training day.Till next time hugs xxx

I's nice to know I'll be able to do more with my punch than make birds.
Seriously Monica, it is a fabulous card and the flowers are so clever.
