Passion for Promarkers - All things bright and beautiful (use Autumn colours)...

Good morning, dear Blogger buddies, if a little late in the day!  We have a new challenge starting over at Passion for Promarkers and the lovely Eileen has chosen a theme of  ‘all things bright & beautiful (autumn colours)’.  Eileen would simply like you to use autumnal colours on your creations this week as autumn has finally arrived and the weather is crisp and there is a definite nip in the air in the mornings now.  You don’t have to include autumn/harvest images but if you’ve got them then why not?  We have 2 generous sponsors this week.  Firstly we have Di’s Digi Stamps who are offering one lucky winner a prize of a $12.00 voucher to spend in their online store.

Our second sponsor is Letraset who are offering one lucky winner a prize of a Winsor & Newton set of 12 Brushmarkers (Set 1) which includes a free blender pen. 
                                                         Letraset prize week 368
As always to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Letraset products (promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, aqua markers or metallic markers) and of course follow the theme.  (Please can you help us by stating which Letraset products you have used on your creation i.e. ‘coloured with Promarkers’ etc.)...
I decided to create a shaker card for this week's creation and used my squirrel digistamp with some fabulous oak leaf and acorn dies that had yet to be used!  I kept the layout quite simple and hand stamped the 'go nuts' sentiment using individual alphabet stamps...
A few of my well loved fishtails, a string bow and of course, my signature pearls and I was done!
Has to be short and sweet today, as I have a tonne of chores to catch up on today and it's almost half way over already!
Hope you can find the time to join in with our topical challenge this week and don't forget to have a look what my teamies have made for your inspiration over on the Passion for Promarkers blog!

Passion for Promarkers - Add texture...

Good morning, crafty friends!  A quick post from me to let you know that there's a new challenge starting over at Passion for Promarkers today and the lovely Ali has chosen a nice, easy theme of 'Add texture'!  Whether it be embossing, glitter, lace, hessian or distressing your edges, get adding that texture!
We have a fab sponsor this week - Dies to Die For are offering one lucky winner a £15.00 voucher for their store...how cool is that?!

...So I decided to go with a Christmas card, again and used my Christmas Tree digistamp, coloured with Pro/Flexmarkers...
...My texture is dry embossing, hessian, twine, white heat embossing to create a frosty edge around the image topper and of course some glitter...I mean, it wouldn't be Christmas without glitter now, would it?!
...Right, gotta dash - 2 card orders to make, a bomb site of a house to tidy and then pick the little man up from school and take him to the dentist this afternoon...someone got a couple of more hours to spare?
Have a totally terrific Tuesday, whatever you're up to...but maybe try and find the time to join in with our fun challenge and bag yourself an awesome prize! Don't forget to have a look at what my talented teamies have created for your inspiration by hopping over to the Passion for Promarkers blog and clicking on their links...
