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

Hello there, well I had all the good intentions in posting this yesterday but I failed miserably. I had such a busy day, busy but  very enjoyable **GRINS**

For starters it was Dawn's Special Day YAY!!!
Now Dawn is so loved by everyone, she is an absolute diamond of a girl and I am lucky to know her, very kind hearted and truly beautiful. 
Dawn fave colour is Pink and my favourite new colour is Melon Mambo so what was I to do? make her a card of course.
I have loosely used a sketch from our next challenge at Stamp With Us and paired Mambo with So Saffron and Old Olive.  The crazy for cupcakes is a set I haven't inked in a while and it was good working with it, like visiting an old friend.
I have coloured the cupcake using markers and I have started with Barely Banana, then More Mustard, Really Rust and Close to Cocoa. For the frosting I used Pretty in Pink and Pink passion then using the Versamark pen I added heat and stick and dazzling diamonds all over.
And as if that wasn't enough I took my Vintage Vogue set and the Bird punch and added a fun dimensional accent, well Dawn is very special so I wanted her to have an extra special cupcake.
Here's a close up of the said element.
 I was very pleased with it I hope Dawn liked it just as much.

I have also sent a little surprise for Dawn as she is always sending me something, I said she is very kind didn't I? Dawn I really hope you had a wonderful day, big hugs xxx.

Now the second nice surprise is that Stampin 'Up! announced  the location for the next annual Convention which is to be held in London. Just look at this for a magnificent spot. I am sooo excited to spend nearly 3 days with a few hundred of demonstrators from the 3 European markets having a copious amount of insane FUN> is just the best thing ever. This event is only available to demonstrators so what are you waiting for? Contact me and become a Passionette then you can join us all at this amazing event. This is the Oscars of SU, not to be missed for sure.

I don't think I mentioned the fact that it was just the most beautiful and warm day so spirits was high. If you are a regular blog reader you will have known that not that long ago my car broke down while travelling back from  weekend away in London with my friends. Well I have to confess that I fell out of love with that car.
So we talked about maybe changing it and today we test drove 2 vehicles. And we decided on the one I said I would never want, and now I REALLY, REALLY WANT IT!! LOL
Extremely silly grin on my face and freakish eyes but this car made me happy, I loved it. Trouble is I think I need to make some more money and fast, my question is Would you like to book a workshop with me? LOL. Until I make more money I will count on hubs to make this happen if not I 'll live. 
And to finish off a lovely day we went to see my lovely Passionette Jules perform in Footlosse. OH WOW!! the show was spectacular and Julie blew my socks off, I never knew she could sing like that, brilliant she was like the whole of the cast, these guys were as far away from the word amateur as it could get. I am already excited for the next performance.
So thank you if you read so far I had a wonderful day and I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend the weather is supposed to be warm and sunny and I could do with topping my sun tan off which I might just do.
Have a great weekend yourself till next time Hugs xxx
