Birthday Passionette!!

Hello there I hope you are well and you’re enjoying a fabulous and warm day, is been glorious round here!! As I type this I can smell the BBQ hubs is cooking for us and as soon as I’m done I am off to find something cool and refreshing to drink.
Today Jules one of my Passionette is celebrating her Happy Birthday !! Jules has been with me 3 years she is a very successful demonstrator, a talented crafter and a sweet friend. I am so glad she chose our team, over the years we have shared two fab Incentive Trips together, and we are both going to Vienna next year.
Onto the card I made for her. On my records Jules put down as fave colour Brown although I also know she likes a particular shade of green very much, unfortunately SU don’t do it yet, so I chose a combo of Chocolate Chip, Melon Mambo and Baja Breeze .
I had to make a baby card last week and I had Little Additions stamp set left on my desk. So on a whisper white I stamped the bunting from this set in the three colours stated above, next I added a Choc Chip layer and ran it through the Big Shot on the Square Lattice folder.  I then added a little gems in between the colourful bunting. Pinwheels are so on trend right now and I had to try this idea after seeing a lot of samples all over the net. I have used a square punch and some bright designer paper to make them, they turned up so cute and they are so perfect for a Summer Celebration. jules close 1
To make them cut towards the centre of the square from each point then simply fold the points towards the centre. The points were stuck down with a glue dot and a small rhinestone was added to the middle. I didn’t have any wooden cocktail sticks in the house (can you believe that?) so I have used spaghetti instead (so glad I used to watch all them Blue Peter programs, I knew all that would come in handy some day).
The sentiment is from the Curly Cute stamp set,  I used baja breeze seam binding to tie a bow and the eyelet punch was used for the decorative edge.
I am glad to say that Jules liked her card!!! Jules I  hope you had a fabulous day and thank you for all you do.
Ok I am off to eat my tea and hopefully I will see you very soon. Till then Big Hugs xxx

  9. Since marriage is a permanent bond between two love ones, roses
    are very much preferred for dcor of wedding place. 5. So even though it's been annoying at times that I've had
    to do most of the planning of this wedding myself, it's been good for the same person to have an understanding of everything that's
    going on.
