Passion for Promarkers - Check it out...

 This card made Top 3 at Creative Craft Cottage - thanks so much, ladies!
http://creativecraftcottage.blogspot.co.uk/
Good morning, my lovelies!  Gosh, these weeks are really shifting - to think we are already in the middle of March and the clocks change in a fortnight!  Summer is on it's way!  I am currently working on a new disc...I know!?!...but I have so many ideas that I want to strike whilst the iron's hot, so to speak and am thoroughly enjoying creating new designs! Unfortunately, being sat at my computer for most of the day inevitably means that I am not sat at my crafty table and don't have very much craftiness to share with you all....But it's Tuesday!  Which means it's time to start another fab challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and I have my DT card to share!  It's the lovely Eileen in the hostess chair this week and she's chosen a nice easy theme of 'Check it out!', so we'd like to see checks, plaids or ginghams somewhere on your creations.  We are being sponsored by the wonderful Digistamp Boutique who are offering one lucky winner a £10 voucher to their online store...
Don't forget, to be in with a chance to win the prize, you need to use your Letraset products (i.e. promarkers, flex markers, aqua markers, tria markers, metallic markers or neon markers).
 ...I decided to use the pretty hummingbird digistamp from Animal Antics and make a new home card...

...The papers are from A Play on Words - the Lamp plaid, Sewing pink gingham and Mixer Aqua gingham...
...I coloured the image with my Pro/Flexmarkers and mounted onto one of my favourite dies - Spellbinders Floral Ovals.  I added some pink gingham ribbon and a couple of polka dot buttons for embellishment and highlighted the image with gold and crystal glitter.  The inside was finished with a printed insert.
I hope you get chance to join in with our challenge this week and look forward to seeing all your fabulous creations!  Don't forget to hop on over to the Passion for Promarkers blog to see what my wonderful teamies have made for your inspiration and have a fabulous week!
Hugs,
