Passion for Promarkers & Secret Crafter

Hiya blogging pals, its only Tuesday and what a horrid week I am having already!!!! I arrived at work yesterday to be whisked off into a meeting room only to be told that one of my team had collapsed & died playing football at the weekend, he was 31, I cannot believe it, so tragic & he was such a lovely lad!!!
To make it worse the girl who I gave the post it note holder to (a few posts ago) who is going through a rough time is his girlfriend!!!

As you can imagine the atmosphere at work yesterday was rather sombre.

Anyway onto a happier subject & time for the Passion for Promarkers challenge & this week Denise has chosen a recipe:

'Any colours + 3 different shapes, 2 papers, 1 ribbon'

I have used Imaginisce double sided DP Wild Things hip-hippo-ray available from Stampeezee, my shapes are my squares of the card, tags for the sentiment &my 3rd shape are the craftwork card candy dot circles, my ribbon is the twine across the card.

I coloured the adorable Magnolia Lion in the following Promarkers:

Tan, Sandstone, caramel cocoa, cinnamon, umber, warm grey 4 & 5, sunkissed pink, dusky pink & Ivory

I have decorated the inside of this one as I never seem to finish my cards off & I want to start selling them (to get some pennies back for more stash) so I am trying to be organised....LOL

I am also entering this card into the Secret Crafter Challenge which this week has the theme of 'Celebration', I will link it when I get home as this is a scheduled post

Thanks for looking, please feel free to leave a comment as I love reading them.
