Passion for Promarkers - Blue Skies...

Good morning, dear Blogger buddies and a happy Tuesday to you all!  The last day of March is upon us and I hope you've all recovered from the clock change here in the UK?  I love this time of year with longer days and the hope of warmer weather, it gives me so much more energy after hibernating for the last few months!
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and this week it's the lovely Julie in the hostess chair and she's chosen the theme 'Blue Skies', so we'd like to see blue as the predominant colour on your projects.  This week we are sponsored by the fabulous Little Claire Designs who are offering one lucky winner this sweet stamp set called 'Changing Birdhouse'...


Don't forget, to be in with a chance to win the prize, you MUST use your Letraset products, i.e. Pro/Flexmarkers, Tria, Aqua, Neon/Metallic markers and follow the theme. 
...I had a wedding card ordered so thought I would...stab too pickles with one fork (I don't really like the saying kill two birds with one stone!) and create a card using this week's theme. I have to say, I am really pleased with how it turned out!...
...I used the ever so sweet Wee Bird Swing, coloured with my Pro/Flexmarkers and highlighted with crystal glitter. I also used my latest toy, the pierced fishtail dies (thanks for getting them for me Carol, I love them!)...

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges :
Anything Goes 2nd entry closes today
Feathered Friends or Animals closes today
Fave techniques Lines or No Lines and why...closes 8th
It has to be lines for me!  I admire anyone who regularly uses the no lines technique - I have tried a couple of times and it just makes my head hurt!  I wouldn't rule it out as I enjoy a challenge now and again, but it's lines for me please!

I really love this card Lisa, pretty papers and the image is so cute. I have had this stamp for at least two years and never had it out of the packet, how bad is that. You have done a fabulous job on the colouring and the design of this is delightful.
I need to get my crafty act together, I seem to be drifting at the moment, maybe these brighter days will do the trick for me too. Take care,

I love this card Lisa, very classy and the backing paper is just perfect! The image is so cute and I love this layout. So much so, you've inspired a birthday card I made for my niece last night, I'll put it on my blog later. Hope you don't mind! You know what I'm like - what would I do without you lol!
Hugs, Karen xx
P.S. Congrats on winning the Creative Inspirations challenge this week x
