I used promarkers &  Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen to colour a Make It Crafty layered sentiment Merry and teamed this with a Kaiser Craft Clear Stickers – Merry Christmas.I die cut the image panel using My Favourite Things Double stitched Oval die and mounted this onto Black card. I also used a little gold & white pen to add some details.

Flossie Bumblethorpe

Hello - There is a new challenge starting today at I love Promarkers and it is sponsored by Dr Digi with an Anything Goes theme!! I have had fun colouring and creating this card using a huge print out of  Flossie Bumblethorpe 

I printed Flossie out supersized as I was lacking in a bit of inspiration as to what to do for my card this week. I then paper pieced her dress with patterned paper from Basic Grey Urban Prairie Paper. The only other things I have added are some red papermania gems and a resin flower! I doodled a frame around the image and mounted it on black card. 

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour Flossie - 
Skin - usual
Hat & Bag - Raw Sienna, Cinnamon & Cocoa
Hair & Walking frame - Cool grey 1 to 5 and black
Berries - Poppy, Ruby & Burgundy
Trim - Oasis & Pastel Green. 

I really like how she turned out - I reckon Flossie is a bit of a force to be reckoned with!! 

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges -

Dr Digi in Making Cards Magazine.

So I can finally reveal that I have had the cards that I made using Dr Digi images published in  Making Cards Magazine which is out now. In the magazine is a discount code for your to get these fab Christmas images...

 I used a DoCrafts 12 Days of Christmas Filigree Card blank amd covered the inside with Lawn Fawn Snow day patterened paper. I printed the image which is called Simple Santa onto Super smooth card and coloured the image with Promarkers. I die cut the image using a Lawn Fawn stitiched circle die and attached it to the middle of the card. I used the same die to get the correct shape – arrange the letters from an Alphabet stamp setcalled Harolds Abc into an arc on a stamp block and stamp onto the image panel using Memento Ink. I added some Amercian Crafts Ribbon and then added the greeting from Craftworks cards onto a punched circle. I used diamond stickles to add some sparkle to the snowman and finally added a Holly leaf embellishment from Hobbycraft.

I used these Promarkers and Flexmarkers –
Skin – Antique White, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice, with Baby Pink Cheeks.
Trousers & Scarf - Poppy, Ruby & Burgundy.
Scarf & Leaves – Emerald, Forest Green, Pine & Holly.
Snowman – Powder Blue
Stick – Cinnamon & Cocoa
Carrot nose – Orange, Bright Orange & Gold.
Beard, Boots, Hat & Phone – Cool Greys 1 to 5

I will post the other cards another time but for now I hope this encourages you to go and get the mag and the images,

Ben's 40th Birthday

Hello - Today is my Husbands (still odd saying that!) 40th Birthday and I have planned a surprise trip for us in the near future to a Glamping lodge. It is luxury under canvas!! When Dr Digi released this new image - Well I just knew it was perfect for his Birthday card... This image is called Rub-A-Dud-Dub

 And these are the inspiration photos of the lodge!! How amazing does this look... The only thing I'm worried about is the weather but there is a log burning stove to keep us warm so fingers crossed it stays dry!

 I hope it is a fab as it looks but all the reviews suggest it will be!!! I'll let you know when I've been!!
Happy Birthday Ben and here's to a lovely relaxing break.

Reindeer Yuletide

 Morning - A new Challenge is starting over at I love Promarkers today. This week’s theme is Animals  and the sponsor is  Little Miss Muffet, The Prize for the lucky winner is a $6 voucher

I have used this image called  Reindeer Yuletide.  which I was lucky enough to be able to chose for the DT. There are few different Reindeers like this so it was tricky to pick which one to use

I treated myself to some of the new Lawn Fawn paper pads and got this one call Knit Picky. I think it will get lots of use for my Christmas cards. The die cut greeting is also from Lawn Fawn - Big scripty words which i glued to Kraft card. The only other thing I have used to make this card is a gold pen on the wreath and some red & green card to mount the image panel. 

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour the image -  
Poppy, Ruby & Burgundy
Holly & Lush Green 
Grass, Emerald &Forest Green
Cloud Blue & Powder Blue. 
Ears  - Baby pink
Reindeer - Tan, Cocoa, Cinnamon & Henna / Light Fawn & Saffron
