Happy Sunday...

... everyone, hope you are all keeping warm.  We've been quite lucky here with hardly any snow!!  My youngest was a bit disappointed, but I didnt mind at all - lol.

I've just been looking through some pics and spotted I havent blogged some of them, so I'll blog one now and take advantage of a challenge :-)


The image is sugar nellie coloured with promarkers and I've added liquid pearls to her wings.  I'm not sure of the dp's (sorry) and then added some organza ribbon from my stash with some stamped sentiment tags.

I would like to enter this into:

The Ribbon Girl Challenge - use any image

Right off for a quick cuppa and hopefully a bit of crafty time.

Thanks for looking

I said I'd be back soon...

... and here I am with my DT card for Passion for Promarkers - the theme this week is BRING ON THE BLING, so I've added gems & pearls.

We are sponsored this week by 
http://www.bugaboostamps.com/

 and we were lucky enough to choose an image to play with and I chose Butterfly face and you can get the image here.

So here is my make:


The image has been coloured with pro  & flex markers and liquid pearls added (which I think you can just about see!!  The dp is from a pad from the works and I have added punched butterflies, a die cut floral flourish, gems and sentiment from my stash.

It would be great to see your takes on this challenge to win a digis from Bugaboo.

Thanks for looking

Happy New Year!!!

Eeek here we are a week into the New Year and its my first time blogging - one of my resolutions was to blog more - hmmmm thats not going well - ah well, not to worry.  I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year - cant believe I didnt get any crafty stuff, so I may have bought a couple of things in the sales... cough!! lol

I recently made a card for my hubbys aunt, using one of the new LOTV images I loved this image the first time I saw it and waited for it to come out on digi format and had to order it:


The image has been coloured with promarkers and madded onto pink card.  The dp is just a random sheet from my stash and I have added some gems and a die cut - I've had the die years and I think this is the first time I've used it!!

I would like to enter this into:

In the Pink challenge - anything goes
I love promarkers - anything goes

I'll be back again with my DT card for Passion for promarkers very soon.  Thanks for looking.

Eeek,

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 :-( ) .
