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

YAY is lovely Jo's Happy Birthday today!!! Jo is one of my senior Passionettes and a very valued member of my team, a very sweet girl with a big heart she is a good friend and I am glad to know her. Making her card was a challenge for me as she is the master of Vintage/Grungy work styles that are new and don't come naturally to me. She loves Kraft (she's the one that keeps me on my toes with her fave colours as she's forever changing them) so that's what I went with when I designed her card.

I have attempted a layered look again, and while I think is got that look of newbie at work as supposed to effortlessly put together, I am warming towards this style. I find it challenging and I think that the more I do it the better I will hopefully get. In theory anyway..
I started with a Kraft card blank and stamped the En Francaise background all over in Versamark, I then layered the Medallion background on opposite corners this time I inkded in Creamy Caramel ( I have only inked parts of this stamp for an extra distressed look) and finally I topped the background with the swirly stamp from the Whimsical words Level 2 hostess stamp inked in Chocolate Chip. My focal image was inked using markers and I have combined Taken With Teal, Green Galore and Chocolate Chip. The mated circle was then splattered this was great fun and I might show you how I did it in a future video, Shelli Gardner showed this at one of our early training Events so much fun!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Jo, I hope you will have a fabulous day and you will get spoilt rotten by your loved ones. xx
I am in Sheffield all day today today at a training Event for demonstrators during the day and a lovely Experience Event organized for customers in the evening. It should be tons of fun and I am excited to meet with my fellow demos and spend a whole day crafting, chatting and catching up, I cannot wait!!! This is what I love most about being a demo meeting up with my best crafty friends. I hope you will have a lovely day. Hugs xxx
