A first sneak peek....

Good evening, dear Blogger friends!  I know my blog has been rather sparse for the last month, but I am almost at the end of my next disc, 'Another Play on Words'...

It is getting hard to stay focussed, (to be honest, it's getting to the point where I am carded out and my house looks like it's been hit by an atomic bomb!) but I only have 3 sample cards to make and then it's on to testing and then...production!
So I'm here to share the first design set gallery which is a baby set...
...There's a predesigned card, CAS card, decoupage toppers, flat toppers, blank toppers, images, backing papers, sentiments, inserts, digistamps, embellishments and some 3D projects too...I have to stop adding things or it'll never be finished!  Hope you like my little sneak peek and I'll be back with more over the next few days.  I'll be launching at Leigh Show on Sunday 30th August and then they'll be available to buy on my blog the following week.
Thanks for putting up with my absence and I hope to be able to do some more visiting once all the samples are completed, plus a couple of well earned days off with hubby and my boys.
Take care,
Lisa x

Passion for Promarkers - Flowers...

This card came Top 3 at Creative Inspirations - thank you so much, ladies!

Good morning, everyone!  I had every intention to post some cards before now, but unfortunately spent most of last week without internet access, due to switching providers.  It was supposed to all happen in a day but guess what?! nothing ever goes to plan and we ended up, after many phone calls to our new provider and a few days without internet, with the engineer spending a day between our house and the exchange!  At least we are back up and running now!  My days are still filled with sample making, although I've also had a lot on with school life as my youngest goes up to high school this year...scary!
Anyway, I am here to share a card with you for the new challenge which starts today over at Passion for Promarkers.  This week it's our lovely Julie in the hostess chair and she has chosen a nice, easy theme of 'Flowers' - so as long as there are flowers on your project, this could be flowery paper, a flower image or flower embellishments.  We are being sponsored by the wonderful Digistamp Boutique who are offering one lucky winner a £10 voucher to their store...
Don't forget, to be eligible to win the prize, you must use your Letraset mediums and follow the theme.
The lovely Sally Ann over at DSB gave us the opportunity to choose a digi for this week's challenge and I chose the ever so pretty Alyssa.  I only used part of the image within a circle aperture, coloured with my Pro/Flexmarkers...
...The papers are all from my next disc and have a pretty. pastel pallette...
Well, I hope you can join in with our challenge this week and I look forward to seeing what fabulous creations you make.  Don't forget to hop on over to the Passion for Promarkers blog and see what my wonderful teamies have made for your inspiration!
I hope to be back soon with some of the first sneak peeks of my next disc 'Another Play on Words' have a terrific Tuesday and a fantastic week!

Passion for Promarkers - Fancy that...
This card came Top 3 at All Dressed Up Challenge blog!  Thank you so much for choosing me, laides!

Good morning, dear Bloggers.  These weeks are really flying by now, the children have only a fortnight left in school and it's mad busy with end of term activities - my little man has his transition week this week...I just hope that he loves it as he's going to a different unit to all of his friends!
I am coming to the end of my design work for my next disc 'Another Play on Words' (at last!) and am quite pleased with how it's looking, so not long now - I have to complete the interface and then it'll be on to testing and sample making, so you should have something to look at in the next couple of weeks!
For today, it's another new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and it's the lovely Eileen in the hostess chair this week - she's chosen us a nice easy challenge of 'Fancy that', so we'd like to see all those pretty additions of ribbon, lace, pearls, sparkle, etc...
We're being sponosred by Little Claire Designs and the fabulous Letraset who are offering one lucky winner a set of 6 Promarkers (Rich tones), so why not get your pens out and join in?!...
Don't forget, to be eligible to win the prize, you MUST use your Letraset pens and follow the theme.

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to win over at All Dressed Up challenge and got to choose 3 digis from their store (I could've chosen many more) so decided to use one of the images for my card...
(I must apologise for my blurry photos only my MIL has borrowed our camera and I had to take these on my tablet)

...The image is called Mirror Mirror and was coloured with my Pro/Flexmarkers.  The papers are from the Sewing and Mixer set of A Play on Words, and I cut the image using my nestie ovals and a Sizzix Thinlits frame die...

...For the 'fanciness', I added some pretty sweetheart blossoms and mini roses from WOC (desperately need to make an order as my stocks are at a premium!) lots of diamantes, grosgrain ribbon and bow and my signature pearls!  I also added a touch of crystal glitter to the mirror frame and dresser but it's not showing very well (heck, nothing's showing very well!)  I completed the inside with a printed insert and a simple sentiment.
Well that's it from me for today, I hope you can find the time to join in with our easy challenge this week and look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations!  Don't forget to hop on over to the Passion for Promarkers blog to see what my lovely teamies have made for your inspiration and to say a warm hello to our newbie Anna who is taking over from the talented Lou Mac, who stepped down last challenge. Hope to be back soon with some more craftiness, have a fabulous week!

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges :
Anything Goes until August
Must include Flowers until 12th
Anything goes with Ribbon until tomorrow
We're going Dotty until tomorrow
