I love Promarkers Challenge 109

this weeks challenge over at I love Promarkers is use 3 different papers, this gives me another opportunity to include another 1 of the 7 cards I made for as a gift using Art Impressions "Girlfriend" rubber stamps.
I have coloured the image with a mix of promarkers and flexmarkers.
the papers I have used are Fabscraps shabby chic
and Kanban coloured core
I have also used my new Tim Holtz washer strip die

Just a quick post tonight as I have just got home from a very busy day at work, thankfully I am day off tomorrow, and if this lovely weather continues hope to get on the golf course if not I am likely to be having a crafty session.
Thanks for visiting

Three in a row - Allsorts Challenge WK 146

Up bright and early this morning, not out of choice though due to a little over exuberance of a certain cockerel I have, that wasn't bought as a cockerel (but there is another story). Anyway up and at 'em never the less. As this is mothering Sunday I have a busy day ahead with the entertaining of the Mothers, so I am taking advantage of this early start to post my entry into this weeks challenge over at Allsorts Challenge Blog where the theme this week is "Three in a row".
This is the 2nd of 7 cards I have made with the "Girlfriend" stamps from Art Impressions as a present, which has now been given, and overwhelmingly received (I will be posting the others ongoing)
Anyway on to this one, which was the last one that I made and fits perfectly with this weeks theme of three in a row.
Stamped and coloured with copics
Tim Holtz ruler tape
Papers from my stash

Thanks for looking and have yourself a lovely mothers day

What a lovely sunny day..........

Well what a lovely sunny day today has turned out to be here in the north west of England. If this is March bring it on..... please can we have some more of this please?
This week I am off work and was looking forward to a craft week, was!! means it hasn't happened. I decided to do a bit of Ebay selling, you know all those things that have sat around for ages that you no longer want anymore (and a great way of raising money for crafty stash, lol), so from sunday I have been listing and listing and listing and listing, how tedious is that task, I have ebayed myself within an inch of my life. So today was enough is enough I need to craft!!!
I am currently making a set of cards to give as a gift, and as that deadline draws closer I thought I should better get on with it or else it wont be much of a set (I am currently at 4 made). I am making them using the "girlfriends" collection from Art Impressions.

 Here is the one that I have finished today and I am entering into this weeks theme at Promarker Challenge - colour challenge  which this week is PASTELS.
Papers are 7gypsies 5th Avenue Jouney
Bazzill Basics embossed dots
Flowers are made from the Bazzill using Doohickey Peoney die
Some sequined pink net (giving that tutu look)
Diamond stickles
ribbon and pink gems

I will shortley show the remaining 2 that I haven't posted yet
thanks for looking
