Passion for Promarkers & Penny Black

Hi bloggers, hope you are all ok, I have been a busy bee this past week trying to get organised!!! I have started with the finances, doing all that switching electric/gas providers etc, suprising how long it takes to sort out all that paperwork that accumulates over the year!!

The overtime ban at work has also been lifted to clear a backlog so I have been getting the extra pennies whilst it's available, so I have had very little crafting time again but I have made my Passion for Promarkers card this week, I could not resist this weeks challenge which is a 'Baby theme' my favourite!!!

It also gave me a chance to use my new Penny Black stamp I got from The NEC in November, another stamp crossed off my very long list of 'stamps still to be used' Another reason for using this particular stamp was so that I can enter this week's Penny Black challenge 'New Beginings', I will have to link up my card when I get home from work as this is a scheduled post.

Anyway here is my card:

I decided to make a card with my Nesties, these cards come out so small & cute, love em!!

Here's the close up:

Not sure if you can tell but I used seed beads for the flowers centres, totally forgot I had them. The little tag is a Stampin up set 'Tiny Tags' and co-ordinating punch, again something I have never used before, I know I am bad!!!

The cute image was coloured with Promarkers as follows: Dusky Pink, pastel Pink, Blush, cerise, baby pink, pale pink, leaf green, ice grey 1 & 3, cinnamon, Tan & Blender

I really hope you can join us this week
