Passion for Promarkers - Christmas is coming....

..It sure is! Good morning, lovely Bloggers and a Happy Tuesday to you all! Can you believe that we are hurtling towards the end of November and I haven't even put a dent in my Christmas shopping list! I am trying to give more personal presents this year, either by making them myself or by making up gift baskets with a theme that the recipient will like (or that's what I'm hoping!) Plus I'm throwing in a few white elelphant gifts, just to try and put some fun back into the proceedings! I am feeling quite deflated about it all this year as my youngest is now of the age where he's not really a Santa believer (though won't come out and admit it in case there's repercussions!) and with only me liking the mince pies and Christmas cake, there seems to be no preparation or build up either! But despite this, I'm still looking forward to having hubby home for a fortnight and hopefully spending a bit of family time together!
Well, enough of that!  Christmas IS coming and that's my theme this week over at Passion for Promarkers - so I'd like to see all your festive creations, whether it be robins or reindeer, Santa or snowmen, get out your Letraset mediums and get colouring...Don't forget, you can mix your Letraset pens with other mediums and still enter into the challenge, just tell us where you've used your Promarkers, etc and you're still elligible to win the prize!...

For my card, I used a fab sketch from Sweet Sunday Challenge #294 and an image that I drew myself...
...The papers are scraps that were on my table at the time, though the plaid is from the birdhouse design set of 12 Cards of Christmas and the embossing folder is an Embossalicious one...
...The snowflakes are from a set of XCut ones that I recently bought which seemed excellent value as there were loads of dies on the sheet! The sentiment is Welsh for Merry Christmas and I finished with some Glossy Accents on the baubles, crystal glitter, buttons and sprinkles.
So, there you go, there's my contribution for your festive inspiration and I look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations and am sure will be kept busy visiting your blogs...Don't forget to hop on over to the Passion for Promarkers blog and see what my wonderfully talented teamies have been making and good luck in the draw!
Crafty hugs,
Lisa x

This is a very sweet Christmas card Lisa, I love all the layers and colours and especially your own image. It's very pretty with all the die cut snowflakes added too. How did the craft fair go? You had made some really gorgeous items.
