Birthday Passionette…

Hello everyone, a bit of a break from my Convention update. Today Jane is celebrating her Happy Day, and this year is even more special for Jane as her first son William George was born on the 19 Nov. so what a fabulous gift she has had?

I haven’t met him yet but is very high on my agenda to see him for a special cuddle.

Jane loves green and I took inspiration from our Convention colour theme of Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade.

I am so pleased with the result and you will have to take my word that it looks much better in real life than this dreadful picture, we are back to no decent light so back to rubbish photos.

I have used a hostess set called Simply Soft to stamp straight onto the newsprint designer paper. The flowers were coloured using markers. Beautiful Wings embosslit was used along with the little leaves embosslit to create a cluster on top of my stamped background.

Lots of new products here, the seam binding in vanilla, yumy lace, very lovely vintage tags (which I only got round to buy) and a sentiment from the new Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

The vintage tag was stamped with the word friend from the tiny tags set and I used a pearl to mask the ^s^ from the word friends.  Rhinestones and pearls were dotted about on the card a little element that my friend and fellow German demonstrator Jenni Pauli uses a lot on her projects.

Right I am off I had a busy day today and now I am about to leave the house for a date with my hubs at our favourite Thai restaurant. 

See you again soon till then big hugs xxx
