Toes in the Sand - Saturated Canary - Passion For Promarkers DT.

Good morning from a bright sunny North East England, isn't it lovely seeing the sun. Today it's Julie's turn to pick a theme for the PFP challenge, and she has chosen 'Summer Lovin', so nice and easy, anything you love about Summertime.
I have used a SC digi called 'Toes in the Sand', I actually bought it when it first came out and finally got around to using it.


She is just too cute, and a surfer too.  I cut her using SB curved rectangles and added a faux nestie behind her. The flowers are MB Hibiscus, again bought about 2 years ago and finally used. Backing Papers from Nitwits. Ribbon and sentiment from my stash.


She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Tria Markers. I added distress ink to the background.


The inside does reflect the front.


We are being sponsored this week by Whiff of Joy who are offering the lucky winner a their choice of stamp.


My other teamies have made beautiful cards again for your inspiration, hope you have a look at them here. Don't forget to enter this challenge you must use Letraset products (Pro,Flexi,Tria,Metalic,Neon or Aqua markers).  Looking forward to seeing your creations.

Good morning everyone hope you are enjoying the lovely weather. Just back from cruising the Med and thought it would be freezing when we got back.
Today is the start of a new challenge at Winter Wonderland where Lorraine has chosen the theme 'Blue Christmas', so lots of blue on your cards please.  I chose to use a TPS image 'Warm in the Winter' which I have coloured before in traditional colours.


She is cut using a SB labels 22, with a faux nestie behind her.  The poinsettia corner is a new one from Memory Box. and the gems are from my stash.


She is coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Tria Markers and I added copious amounts of Glamour Dust to the snow and as snowflakes.


The inside does reflect the front.

La Mer - Aurora Wings - Passion for Promarkers DT

Good morning from a very wet and thundery North East England, so glad I am flying off this afternoon to the sunshine.  Today is the start of a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers, and although I chose the theme (before my holiday was booked) the lovely Lou is taking it over for me.  I chose 'I do like to be beside the seaside', so it's anything to do with the sea, in it, on it or beside it.


I have used this amazing image from Aurora Wings called 'La Mer'.  She is straight cut and all embellies are from my stash.

She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Tria Markers. I also added Sacura pen to her pearls and to the sea weed but unfortunately it doesn't show very well in the photos.


The inside does reflect the front.

Ragged Angel - Mo's Digital Pencil - Winter Wonderland DT

Good morning and hope it's a good one for you.  Today is the start of a new challenge at Winter Wonderland where the theme this week is 'Spots and Stripes'.  I have used a gorgeous Mo Manning image called Ragged Angel.  I cheated a little as the spots on my card are on her scarf rather than on the backing paper.


She is cut with SB Grand Ovals backed by a Grand scalloped oval. The corners and leaves are from MB. Flowers from LOTV. Backing papers, charms, rickrack ribbon and pearls are from my stash. It doesn't show very well in the picture but she is standing on Pinflair ice crystals and I also added glamour dust to her wings. The sentiment is a peal off.


She is coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkes and Triamarkers.


The inside does reflect the front.


On the inside I added a MB star border rather than the rickrack.

We have a wonderful sponsor this week

Mother's Day Flower - Sassy Cheryl - Passion for Promarkers DT.

Ooops I forgot to post this this morning.
Today is the start of a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers where the lovely Shelley has chosen the theme 'Rags to Riches' in other words recycle something on your card.  I have chosen to use a Sassy Cheryl image 'Mother's Day Flower' which makes a great birthday card too.  My recycled things are the acetate front, which was from the packaging of a shower mat, and the ribbon which was from a chocolate box.



I love her expression. She is cut with a SB labels 4 with a faux nestie behind her. The flower swirls are peel offs and I added flower gems to the centre.


She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Triamarkers.


The verse is from LOTV and the backing paper is Nitwits.


We are very lucky this week to be sponsored by Polka Doodles where the lucky winner will receive 2 images, Fredericka Chic and Fredericka Debutante

Christmas Carols - The Paper Shelter- Winter Wonderland DT.


Good morning everyone. Today is the start of a new challenge at Winter Wonderland where our theme this week is 'A Christmas Choir', so we would love to see your images with singer/singers. I have used an image from The Paper Shelter 'Christmas Carols'.


I fussy cut them and added them to a Nitwits paper. I do love Nitwits as you can use plain papers and add your own embellishments before printing, as I did with the holly.  I can't remember where I got the song sheet from as I have had it for years. The ribbon, gems and charm are from my stash, and the sentiment was from the Hollypond Hill cd.


They are of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Triamarkers with a little Prisma pencil for extra depth. I also added some white flower soft and Glamour dust to her coat.


The inside does reflect the front.

We have two wonderful sponsors this week so 2 chances of winning prizes.

Winter Friends - Wee Stamps - Winter Wonderland DT

Good morning everyone  I'm back with a card for the Winter Wonderland DT where this week our challenge is 'I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas'. A white on white challenge where only your image can be coloured. I always find these so difficult to do and even worse to photograph.  I decided to use another of Sylvia Zet's wonderful images and used Winter Friends.


She is cut with a SB Grand labels 1. I added WOW white embossing powder around the edge before mounting her onto 2 layers of SB Grand Decorative labels 1.  I then added a SB poinsettia, Cheery Lynn Santa and sleigh, Memory box stag and 2 Marianne trees. The background is also embossed with a Darice snowflake folder.


She is coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma Pencils and I added some Glossy accents to her headband and boots.


I hope you will take the time to enter the challenge this week where Marianne Designs are offering a surprise
 gift for the winner.
