Passion For Promarkers Challenge #436 - Babies (animals/people)

Hi Crafters,

Where is this month going? We will be putting the clocks forward at the end of the week too!!!

Well we have a new challenge at Passion For Promarkers using the theme of 

 Here is my card using this cute image from Di's Digital Stamps, our sponsor for this week, who is offering the lucky winner a $12 voucher for the store.

I went with a DL shaped card this time, I haven't used one of these for ages. My image is called 'Animal Safari' from Di's Digital Stamps and thought it was perfect for a baby congratulations card. It was coloured with my Promarkers of course, which as you know you must use if you want to be eligible for the prize, so please make sure you tell us in your post where you have used them. The gingham paper comes from a Milton & Co paper pad and the filigree die cut is an unbranded one in my stash. The sentiment dies are new to me from Creative Expressions and I really love the font used.

Fab n Funky - #385 Anything BUT Square
Crafty Creations - #362 ATG
Cute Card Thursday - #521 Celebrate

Christmas Card Club Challenge #5 - Robins

Hi Crafters,

Well it's been an interesting week with the weather hasn't it?
I hope you have all kept safe and well.

Today it is time to share my cards for the new challenge in our Christmas Card Club where the theme this time is...


I have 3 cards this week as I seem to have quite a lot of robin images and kits in my stash and found this a very easy and lovely subject to create with. Thank you Valery for your fabulous choice of theme.
The first and second cards were made using free papers and kits from magazines and the third card is a card making download that I've printed a few times and layered up.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Crafty Creations - #361 ATG
Aud Sentiments - #198 ATG + Sentiment
As You Like It - Single or Multiple Layers + Why
I really enjoy creating lots of interest on my cards by using multiple layers and elements. I find this style much easier than a single layer or CAS design too.

Spring Has Sprung

Hi Crafters,

A very dismal and dreary day here in Norfolk and after the sunny weekend I'm so ready for some regular sunshine and warmer days now.
So I thought I'd share one of my recent projects which shouts Springtime!

Both the watering can and daffodils are a Silhouette Cameo cut file
and I thought this would make a nice Easter display on my stall when selling my Easter cards.

Just a little Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade & Wild Honey to define the petals was all that was needed. I popped the daffodil heads on to plastic stirrers for stems so to cover the round, flat tops I added a Stampin' Up flower punch in green card for the sepal.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Allsorts Challenge - #455 Handmade Flowers

Thanks for joining me today and see you again tomorrow for my DT post for the new challenge at Passion For Promarkers.
