another week closer to Christmas - and time for another challenge at Passion for Promarkers and the challenge this week is Eat, Drink & Be Merry - always possible at Christmas :-) . 

Here is my take:

Oh man - you wouldnt believe the number of attempts to colour this - I had horrendous trouble with bleeding of the darker colours :-( .  The image is Saturated Canary coloured with flex and pro-markers.  Now the sentiment may acutally be Whimsy Doodles that came with a free image maybe last Christmas.  I'm not sure of the make of papers and then I have added a die cut Poinsettia.

Cant wait to see your creations - there is a fab prize this week from Clearly Besotted :-) .

Have a great week and thanks for looking

Toot, toot...

... just blowing the Passion for Promarkers trumpet - have you seen there is a DT call so if you are a keen Promarker user (or other pen from their range) - why not apply :-).  There is a sticky post over at their blog where you can link you blog to enter - it would be great to see you!!

Right, as its the Tuesday to post my card for the challenge (these come round really quickly!)  I'll do this now.  The challenge this fortnight is Christmas is Coming!!

So my take on this was to get organised and get the cards posted:

The image has been coloured with promarkers/flexmarkers and I've added some fluffly stuff (I love watching this stuff transform when you heat it!!) and Ive  also added some stickles.  Now I'm having a nightmare remembering the papers I think they could be papermania and the image was a freebie from Wee Stamps quite a while ago - and then I have added some die cut snowflakes. 

This week we are sponsored by:
and you could win a great prize from them!

So why not pop over and enter it will be great to see your creations and have a think about entering the DT position :-).

Thanks for looking


(p.s. I'll also take this opportunity to apologise if I've not visited your blog over the last week - just when things kick off on the internet (like it has with the US elections) I tend to avoid and stay away - not very grown up but I just dont like it :-( ) .

Happy Tuesday...

... everyone, hope you all had a great Halloween and not made yourselves ill with too many Halloween goodies!!

As its Tuesday its time again for the Passion for Promarkers Challenge and this week the challenge is Tweetmas Wishes and this week we are sponsored by All Dressed Up and I have used one of their cute images:

I have used a brick effect embossing folder and added fluffy stuff to give the appearance of snow - then added a die cut window (with more fluffy stuff!) the All dressed up image has been coloured with promarkers/flexmarkers and then a die cut poinsettia added.

It would be great to see your creations and you could win 2 digi images from All Dressed Up

... its Tuesday again (gosh these weeks come round quick!!!) - time for another challenge at Passion for Promarkers this week we are sponsored by the fab Di's digi designs and also there is a chance to win set 1 of brushmarkers courtesy of Winsor & Newton!!!

The challenge this week is All things bright & beautiful/autumnal.  Here is my take:

The image is a Whimsy Doodles freebie from ages ago, coloured with flex/pro markers.  I have then used die cuts - clouds, birds (coloured with promarkers), ground which I die cut then ran through a paper crimper I was aiming for a ploughed field effect lol.  Next I used punches for the sun and flowers which have a dinky dot of liquid pearls.

I quite enjoyed making this scene.

Cant wait to see your takes on this weeks challenge - so be sure to pop over and enter!!

... its not Tuesday yet!!  Still only Monday - but I'm going to blog a card I made for my neices birthday (its not until January - but I'm struggling to get going with Christmas cards and I really need to!!)

I saw a challenge over at Sweet Stampin and thought I'd give it a go :-)

The image is from Saturated Canary (which has sadly stopped trading) - coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers.  The papers are Basic Grey matted onto pink bazzill - I  have then added some die cut arrows and a die cut i-pod.  I thought she was going to be difficult to colour but she was actually a joy!!

I would like to enter this into

Sweet Stampin - Spots/Stripes

Hello, hello...

... eek we are into October already - how quickly is the time going?!?   And its Tuesday which means time for a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers.  It was my turn to choose the theme this week and I've chosen add texture.  

Here is my take on it:

So - I have matted the dp (which may be dovecraft??) onto black card.  I have then used an embossing folder on the black card and stapled hessian ribbon to the card.  The image is a Greetings Farm coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers and then I have die cut and raised on sticky pads the 16.  (I am going to give this card to my friends son who turns 16 in November!)

I'm really looking forward to seeing your creations and I've nearly missed the important bit you could win £15 to spend in Dies to Die for - wow!!! What a fab prize :-)

Hello, hello...

... how are you all???  Well I'm getting back into the swing of things after our lovely holiday round the med (I dont like to post too much info before we go away as you never know who is reading - lol, paranoid me - never!!)

Anyhoo, its Tuesday and time for the new Passion for Promarkers challenge and this week the challenge is Clean & Simple - now who doesn't love a challenge like this!!!

Here is my take on the challenge with a card I made for an auntys birthday:

I've used a sugar nellie stamp and coloured her with pro & flex markers and then added glitter to her wings.  The image as been cut and matted onto pink card and then added ribbon and sentiment tags from my stash.

It will be great to visit your creations so pop over and enter into the challenge where you could win a great prize from this weeks sponsor - Bugaboo.
