....I did something AMAZING!!! I gave blood. http://www.blood.co.uk/. It truly helps save lives and it takes about 20 minutes.

And I have a card to show one that I have made to welcome another Passionette to my team. This is the lovely and ever so talented Sheila and you will just have to visit her blog and see what I mean, her scenes are truly magical. I choose the ever so gorgeous Live your dream stamp set.

Chocolate chip, pumpkin pie and a touch of Old Olive. The stamp was inked using markers in the following colour, Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, Bravo Burgundy for centre, and Old Olive. Choc Chip grosgrain ribbon. Here s a closer look as the flower heads were popped using dimensionals and Bashful Blue marker have been use to highlight everything.
So a huge WARM WELCOME Sheila, I know you will just love being a demo and i hope you will like your card. You too can join me and the Passionettes and if you hurry up( sign up by the 28Th of Feb) you can earn yourself not one but 2 FREE stamp sets from the catalogue. of course this is all on top of your already full of goodies Starter Kit( that you can choose yourself as well). Email me for more details on telemech01@aol.com

  1. Beautiful card as always Monica ;0)

    Congratulations on donating blood and well done on posting about it -I know that the reserves for my blood type (O-neg) are falling all the time, as you said it really doesn't take up much time and it doesn't hurt. Hope a few more volunteer just from reading your blog.

    Well done

Everyone who can should, it really does save lives and it could be your own life potentially. Gorgeous card though-you're really getting me off my orange phobia and into pumpkin!!!
