Birthday Passionette !!!

Hello have you had a lovely weekend? I did the weather was nice although a bit breezy but the sun was shining nonetheless which is always nice.
Tina one of my lovely Passionettes is celebrating her HAPPY BIRTHDAY today so I have made her a card, Tina's favorite colour is pink and boy did I made her a PINK card!!! I combined it with a challenge set by my SCS sisters and that was to make a monotone card and here it is: Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink with a hint of black. I used the level 2 hostess stamp set Spring Solitude flowers coloured using the Marvellous Markers, Polka Dot background was stamped in Versamark and embossed in white, and the frilly punch is one I had for ages not sure who makes it though (it cuts and embosses), sentiment from the Sincere Salutations and striped grosgrain ribbon in Pretty in Pink. Tina Happy birthday sweetheart hope your day was full of nice surprises and i hope you liked your pinkified card. Hugs M xxx

Talking about birthdays I was still receiving card by Saturday, so here it goes I am sharing some more special cards kind friends have made for me.

This pretty frame came from my dear friend Michelle, we share our birthday and I haven't got a photo of the card I made for MichelleI I sent it at the last minute as always LOL) but I made one exactely the same in a different colour that I will share in my next post so you can see it then.

How cool is this? I love everything about this, the Washington Apple ds paper is glorious, I adore it Michelle what a great way to showcase those papers!!! She also made me a cardMmm yummy colours and the sentiment made me go weak, thank you sweetheart so much.

Then the lovely and ever so generous Steph, this is the sweetest girl you will ever meet with a heart as big as the White House. She sent me this beauty here which I absolutely adore

Made from scratch stamp set and all new Washington Apple papers, isn't it gorgeous? I love it Steph and I also love the cute little tins you ve sent me. Thank you

And my sweet friend Paula made me this

Paula is my local crafting buddy, I introduced her to card making when I moved here 5 years ago, and since then she amassed a huge crafting collection THREE times the size of mine( I am not kidding you !!). her card is really beautiful, shame I cannot photograph the sparkle properly she used a dazzling diamonds along with the heath and stick powder over this gorgeous image, is it Rubber Romance? I don't think it is, will have to ask her. So huge thanks ladies it was very nice to have a prolonged birthday. Hugs Monica xxx
