Passion for Promarkers - Weather...

Good morning, everyone!  Hope you all had a fabulous Easter weekend, whatever you were doing!  We made the most of the Spring sunshine on Friday by visiting Erddig house near Wrexham, before having tea at the Alyn pub in Gresford and finishing the evening watching Superman Vs Batman.  A bit of shopping and ten pin bowling with the little man on Saturday, then a chilled out Sunday and Monday, mainly controlled by the fact that the weather was a bit of a washout!
Speaking of weather, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and the lovely Julie has chosen the theme of 'Weather'...very apt for this time of year!  We're being sponsored by Little Claire Designs who are offering one lucky winner 4 digis from their online store...

...So why not get out your Letraset pens and join in with our topical challenge this week?...
...I was TOTALLY inspired by this card made by the ever so talented Christine - one of my latest blog loves! Her cards are totally my style, I love her use of bright colours and her colouring is AMAZING!...
...I used the umbrella digistamp and sentiment from Another Play on Words, coloured with my Pro/Flexmarkers - I don't know if anyone else is finding the same, but a lot of my Flexmarkers are starting to dry up, despite being a lot newer than some of my old faithful bullet nib pens - hence the rather dodgy shading on the green panel.  I had to add a couple of extra clouds in the mix...just because I love a cloud...and some little diamantes as raindrops.  I added the white dots to the umbrella with a white gel pen, before promptly wiping them all off as I stuck the layers to the card and had to redo them!!  I have to admit I'm not sure about the navy blue layer and wonder whether I should've gone for a paler blue, but hey ho...it is what it is!
Thanks for the inspiration Christine and I'm sure I shall be using this pretty Lawn Fawn Fluffy Cloud border die a lot more in the future...I mean, check out this other card that Christine did in the same style...adorable!  Do I feel a batch make coming on?! :)
Well, that's it from me today - I hope you can find the time to join in with our fun challenge this week and look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations.  Don't forget to check out what my talented teamies have been creating for your inspiration, by clicking on their names above their corresponding card photos over on the Passion for Promarkers blog.
Have a terrific Tuesday and enjoy the rest of the week!

This is an all round fab card Lisa. Love the cloud border die and how you have used it here and I think the navy blue really defines the design beautifully.
