Cheaters card!!!

********Scroll down for PFP blog hop********

Hi peeps,

Hope you are all well, we are mega busy of late and I hardly get near the computer these days, I have to fine my son and hubby for my own laptop!!!

Anyway, I thought I would show you a quick card I made using a portion of a DCWV 12x12 paper, I just cut the patterned image off the card and mounted it on to red and green cardstock and then onto a s
heet of A4 card folded in half and voila a quick easy card!!!

I have picked up this idea from Deb at Stampeezee, she makes some amazing cards for sale in her shop from patterned papers with just a few embellishments, just quick and simple but effective!! I love this DCWV stack, some great papers in it.

Anyway, I am off to bed now, I am worn out, had a long day today, well everday is a long day as moving offices means I am travelling for 2hrs a day now...yuk!!!

Hope to get round some blogs at the weekend to see what you have all been up to.

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

Passion for Promarkers Blog Hop


Over at Passion for promarkers challenge this week we are celebrating the change of design teams with a blog hop. I’m sure you are as excited as I am as there are lots of lovely goodies up for grabs!! We also have a few new faces on the design team so I hope you will leave them a nice comment to welcome them.

Firstly if you’ve arrived at my blog from Nic's blog you are in the right place, if not return to the challenge blog and start your hop again. Our blog hop challenge will last for 2 weeks so you have plenty of time to enter your card (or cards) and hop around the whole design team.

Our challenge theme for the next two weeks is “old & new” i.e. a brand new stamp/digi with old papers etc. Please can you tell us your old and new items in your post. Don’t forget to use your promarkers or aqua markers to be included in our prize draw.

My card uses on old Magnolia stamp, old Magnolia papers & my new Cuttlebug folder that I think looks like snow. My sentiment is also old, it is from a set by Kelly Panacci but this is the first time I have used it so is that new or old?....LOL

I kept my card really simple , I was having a few issues with embellishment placement. I have used Vintage photo Distress Ink to add a bit of colour to the Papers and added some stickles for sparkles, the silver cord is by Stampin Up.

As you’ve read on the challenge blog the design team are also offering some candy of their own, so please leave me a comment on this post and I will randomly draw a winner for a promarker prize courtesy of Letraset.

You also have a “mystery word” to find and my contribution is the letter “S”. Make a note of my letter and then proceed to the mega talented Sue C for the next part of the hop. If you get lost on the hop at all just return to the challenge blog for full directions.

I just want to let you know the wonderful prizes up for grabs for our blog hop challenge:
Letraset are offering a full set of Aqua Markers to one lucky winner *woohoo*.

Not another baby card Surely???

Yes I am afraid so another baby card, no idea what I am playing at but I can't help but churn these out, they make me happy and we seem to be having a bit of a baby boom in the office at the moment so I will need them all!!!!

Anyway, I am using my unloved stash, yes shock horror, I have had that cuttlebug folder for more than 12 months and I have never used it, the bear comes from PTI's Baby Button Bits set, got to say I have used a couple of the stamps from that set now.......go me!!!!

The dark and light pink panels are from a co-ordinations stack, they are both mounted onto PTI's fab Kraft card. I coloured bear with my very neglected Promarkers!!
Hope you like it!!
