Passion for Promarkers Strawberries & Cream

Wow Tuesday again already!!!! Where did my weekend go??

Time for another Passion for Promarkers challenge & this week Sue has chosen the theme 'Strawberries & Cream' I chose to use this strawberry cupcake digi from 'creations by Penny' and it was only a dollar....bargain!! I coloured the sweet cupcake in the following colours:

Red, salmon pink, baby pink, pale pink, Bright green, leaf green, caramel & sandstone

I cut it out with my Circle nesties and mounted it on to Stampin up old olive cardstock cut out with oval nesties. The strawberry paper is from the Nana's Nursery Baby Girl 6x6 paper pad and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Cupcake Collection, i used some more old olive for matting & layering along with some Kraft. I finished the card off with some Old Olive satin Ribbon, currently available in Stampin Up's mini catty.

I have some news by the way, I announced a few weeks ago that I was doing a half marathon in July for the Charity Cardiac Risk in the Young, well I have been training hard and I am running up to 6.5miles now. I have always wanted to do a full marathon and on Friday I got confirmation that I have a charity place running in next years Edinburgh marathon for the RNLI. I am so excited but nervous to........not quite sure what I am letting myself in for!!!! Anyway I will keep you posted. Align Centre
