Passion for Promarkers - Feminine Fancy...

Good morning, Blogger buddies! A really quick post from me this morning as I'm off to have my hair done...but, it's Tuesday - so you know what that means?! A brand new challenge starts today over at Passion for Promarkers and it's the lovely Nic (aka Coops) in the hostess chair, giving us a nice easy theme of 'Feminine Fancy' - so all those creations for the ladies, something feminine and girly with lots of prettiness. Easy, peasy, right?!
We're ebing sponsored by the fabulous Dies to Die For who are offering one very lucky winner a £15.00 voucher to their store...can I enter...pretty please?!  You can make any creation you like (not just a card), as long as you use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) mediums and follow the challenge theme...
So what are you waiting for?! Get out those pens and get playing along!...
I went with soft, feminine colours for my DT card and a pretty Hibiscus flower. Of course, it had to be CAS with just a bit of embellishing - no card of mine would be complete without my signature three pearls!
The image is a sneak peek at something that I'm playing with at the moment...for now, I am enjoying drawing and colouring and we'll see what comes of it?!
Right, gotta go or I'll miss my appointment! I hope you can find the time to play along with us this week and don't forget to see what my talented teamies have created for your inspiration over at the Passion for Promarkers blog!
Crafty hugs,

A freebie!...

Good evening, dear Blogger buddies! A quick pop in to share a freebie with you all! This little guy was heading for the recycle bin, but I thought I would post him and see if any of you lovely crafters would like to give him a new home?...

Passion for Promarkers - Add Some Bling...

Good morning, Bloggers! Like a lot of people, I had promised myself that I would try to blog more this year...not a great start is it?! But I'm here now...and it's Tuesday, which means another fab challenge from Passion for Promarkers for the beginning of 2017!
This week we have the lovely Marie in the hostess chair and she's chosen us a nice, easy theme of 'Add some bling'...We are being kindly sponsored by Bugaboo, who are offering one lucky winner 4 digis from their store...how cool is that?!
Don't forget, to be in with a chance of winning the prize, you MUST use Letraset mediums and follow the challenge them. (It would also help if you let us know where you've used your Letraset products, i.e. coloured with Promarkers)
...We were lucky enough to get an image to play with and I chose the ever so cute Ladybug Line!...
I really enjoyed this challenge theme, although it is an absolute nightmare to photograph! My pretty card is really quite blinged up in real life with black gems on the ladybirds antennae, crystal glitter on the wings, sparkly gold twine, red glitter card mat and a sprinkling of crystal gems, plus a bit of Glossy Accents on their noses...
...I chose this image because I thought it would lend itself to my favourite CAS style and just love the black and red combo of ladybirds...
Colours :
Ladybirds - Red, Berry, Crimson, Burgundy, Cool Grey 1, 3, 4 & 5
Leaves and grass - Meadow, Leaf, Grass
Wings - Sea Mist, Tea Green
Shadow - Blue Grey 1, Dolphin Blue, Blue Pearl, Blender
This card has been sent to a friend, who's birthday was yesterday, so I hope she liked it as much as I do! Right, off to sort out the breakfast mess and then hopefully a chance to sit at my crafty table later!
Don't forget to hop over to the Passion for Promarkers blog to see what my talented teamies have been creating for your inspiration and I hope you can find the time to play along with us!
