Good morning dear crafters...hope you had a wonderful week last week and managed to fit some crafting into your busy schedules. We have a very special challenge starting this week over at Passion for Promarkers, as it's our Birthday! Can you believe that the lovely Denise and Gina started up this fun challenge, to share their love of all things Letraset/ Winsor & Newton, a whole 9 years ago?!...and I have been a member of the DT for over 5 now?! Wow! Where did that go?! It only seems like yesterday that I posted my first ever challenge post HERE...
As it's a special challenge we have a really easy theme for you of "birthday creations". As the title suggests we simply want you to make something for a birthday – simples eh! We expect to see lots of entries this week but please note we are only accepting a maximum of 3 entries per person for this one challenge only. To be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton/Letraset products (i.e. pro, flex, tria, aqua, metallic or neon markers) and of course follow the theme.

Wow! What fantastic prizes...wish I could enter!!
This week is one of my favourites of the year, firstly because it's my hubby's birthday week and secondly because it's Chelsea Flower Show!...I have a real passion for plants and would love to have a beautiful garden like you see on the telly...maybe one day?! With Chelsea in mind, I had to go with a floral theme, using the Hibiscus digi image from Say it with Flowers CD-Rom...
I really like this card layout and love the pop of hot pink that I used to colour the pretty flower. The papers were all from the Hibiscus set from my CD-Rom and the sentiment was one I found in my scrap drawers...I am on a mission to try and use up more of my scraps as I think that they are secretly multiplying in the night?!
I hope you can find the time to join in with our Birthday celebrations and look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations! Both Teams have made cards to give you plenty of inspiration and you can see them all at the Passion for Promarkers blog...
I'd like to enter my card into the I Love Promarkers 'Anything Goes' challenge which closes on the 28th May (click the link above to play along)
