Passion for Promarkers - Let it Shine (Sparkle)

Hi Bloggers, hope you are all well!!

Sorry another week has gone by without a post but I am finding it really hard to find time for myself these days, so much to do and so little time!!!

Anyway, this week at Passion for Promarkers we have the theme 'Let it Shine (Sparkle)', so get out the bling, glittered papers & glamour dust and get creating!

I chose to make a Valentine card this week and when I saw this Digi from Pink Cat Studio 'Blobby In love' I knew he would be perfect for this weeks challenge.

Not sure if you can tell but I have glamour dusted the hearts on the image, & used some glittered papers by Imaginesce. The hearts were cut from an old christmas DCWV stack using my Cuttlebug Concentric hearts die, love this die, first time I have used it. I believe it is discontinued now, I got mine from Ebay.

I had a go with my sewing machine on this card........yeah I know it's crooked but come on It's only my 2nd attempt, and they say practice makes perfect right??? Ahem, so I need a fair bit of practice....LOL

Cute Blobby was coloured with Promarkers in the following colours:

Pastel Blue, Denim Blue, Ruby, Ice grey 1, Cerise & Baby Pink
Hope you like my card
Have a great week, thanks for looking, please feel free to leave a comment as I love reading them.

Passion for Promarkers

Hi bloggers, hope you are all well and have survived 'Blue Monday', so well named, our Monday was awful but I won't bore you with all the details!!

Anyway, Tuesday sure comes around real quick & with it comes Passion For Promarkers challenge, Yay!!

This week the challenge is 'Love', I made a heart box, not sure who to give the credit to as these things are all over the Net!!

I used Whiff of Joy's Henry Mouse Hugging Heart for my image & coloured him with Promarkers, the sentiment is by Unity Stamps

Hope you can join us this week

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

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

Passion for Promarkers challenge 81

Happy 2011 to you all, I hope you all had a great holiday. I managed to to catch the flu bug a few days before christmas and I still have the tail end of a cough, seems most people have been poorly at some stage over the christmas period, some nasty bugs going about!!!

On the bright side, my in-laws came to visit from Scotland, my mother in law is Lil-Daffodil, you may have noticed her about on your travels!! It was lovely to see them both and we got to do a little craft shopping and even made a few bits!

Santa kindly bought hubby an I Mac so I can upload photos from the digi camera again.....woo hoo, no more I-phone pics, the card reader on my laptop has been broken for a few months!!

Anyway, the first challenge of 2011 for Passion for Promarkers is here and the DT want to see the theme 'Thank you'.

Our sponser is the fab Letraset

Here is my first card of 2011:

I choose this adorable free Digi image from Motivet, how cute is that puddy cat? Don't tell my doggies I am drooling over a Kitty.......our house is strictly a kitty free zone!!!! The husband is very allergic to certain types of fur, cat hair does something very strange to his eyes!!!!

  • Sentiment: Stampin up Oval All
  • Papers: Basic Grey Green at Heart
  • Tools: SU Oval & scalloped oval punch
  • Embellishments: SU Ribbon, roses Hobbycraft & Stampeezee
  • Coloring: Promarkers, Blender, Warm grey 1, 3, 4 & 5, Plum, orchid, purple, Amethyst, pastel pink, cocoa & caramel

I hope you can join in the challenge, and good luck with the New Years resolutions, I have a few:

  1. Loose weight, we go to Florida in a few months so I need to get into my shorts....LOL
  2. Use all of my image stamps at least once!!! About 90% of my stamps have never seen ink!!!
  3. Post at least once a week on my blog.
  4. Be more organised!! That includes keeping a tidy house....erm craft room and not throwing away lots of gone off food I never got round to cooking. Working full time really does not suit me....LOL
  5. Limit the amount of craft stuff I buy, I really need to use the mountain of patterned papers I already have and use all my dies etc at least once.....I bad!!!!

Anyway enough waffle from me, please leave me a comment so I know you have been, I will pop by and see you in return, I sometimes forget all the fab blogs I really should be perusing, I need a reminder now and again, my memory is awful!!!

Thanks for looking,
