Passion for Pro-Markers, Wild Orchid & A pocket Full of Posies



This weeks challenge 66 over at Passion for ProMarkers is a great sketch, I have used the AquaMarkers that I won a couple of weeks ago, I hope this is ok still to enter. I am combining this challenge with Wild Orchid Challenge 4 which is ''Make it Sparkle'' but for some reason it doesn't on the picture, but it is sparkly in real life and the last challenge I am entering it in is A Pocket Full Of Posies 5 which is ''Winged Things''

Keep it Simple Challenge 1


Hi everyone, I am very pleased to announce that I have been chosen to join the Keep it Simple Design Team!! Whooop whooop. Keep it Simple is a new challenge blog with the aim of keeping it simple!! So for my first official design team card I have used a Whiff of Joy image coloured with Pro-Markers, a double sided sheet of paper from Anna Griffin and an already die cut tree also from Anna Griffin. As in the rules for the design team the card took me under 30 mins to create, to be sure I watched Friends and it was finished before the episode was.

Keep it Simple will have prizes, a top 3 award and lots of fun. Join us every Sunday for a new challenge.

Tuesday Tagger theme & A Pocket Full of Posies Challenge





This weeks Tuesday Taggers Challenge is Sunshine, and I am combining this challenge with A Pocket Full of Posies which is all that glitters. I have made a little tag with some cosmic shimmer paint for the background, dreamweaver crackle embossing paste for the sun rays and shimmery paper to stamp the children on the bench on, then coated with crackle paint in  rock candy. Love how this one has turned out but it doesn't look as good in the photo as it does in real life as the crackle detail hasn't photo'd well. The stamp is an old Prima one.

A Christmas Card - not a very good one sorry.



Sorry folks but this one isnt to my usual standard, we are having to face the long 2 week time hole in which time seems to be standing still while we wait for Grandad to pass on from terminal cancer. This was just the best i could do, really i should throw it in the bin as its quite dreadful. Anyway the sketch is from Sketch Saturday, The lace is for Wild Orchid Challenges, the flocked snowflakes are for Whiff of Joy and lastly its no designer paper for the Winter wonderland challenge.

Punch is the TSV from QVC last weekend, Image is Whiff of Joy coloured with pro-markers and purple card is bazil bling and really cool looking.

Thanks
