Passion For Promarkers Challenge #440 - Buttons and or Bows

Hi Crafters,

Tuesday means the start of a new challenge at Passion For Promarkers.
So here I am with my DT inspiration for you.
Our theme this week is...

BUTTONS and or BOWS

I've decided to make four little notelets using a set of images from our sponsor Digi Stamp Boutique.
I found this teeny, tiny bow die in my stash and just had to use it with these cute images.


Recipe
Images - Kokeshi Dolls - Digi Stamp Boutique
Coloured with Promarkers
Tattered Lace Frame Die
Spellbinders 'Just a Note' Die
Tiny Bow - All Occasions Die

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Crafty Creations - #364 - ATG
As You Like It - Favourite Colouring Medium + Why
( I love using my Promarkers, they are the first alcohol markers I tried when I began crafting and colouring my own images. I find them very easy to blend and use. I have collected quite a lot of colours over the years and so I don't feel the need to change to another brand)
Crafty Catz - #412 ATG
Crafty Calendar Challenge - Buttons and or Bows

Come and join us on the challenge blog HERE, using your Winsor Newton markers and following the theme, any creation is welcome.

See you soon,

Lorraine

Christmas Card Club Challenge #8 Poinsettia/Christmas Greenery

Hi Crafters,

Two weeks have passed by so quickly and I'm here again to share my cards for the Christmas Card Club.
Mary has given us Poinsettias or Christmas Greenery for our theme.



I've created two very different cards this time.
The top one is using a Craft Creations decoupage sheet and some beautiful tartan paper.
The second card uses a Christmas embossing folder from Apple Blossom and TH Tattered Poinsettia Die cut and embossed using pearlescent card which really makes the embossing stand out. I finished off the poinsettia with a Creative Expressions Dazzler.

Challenges I'd like to enter:


Take a peek at the other ladies cards in our group by clicking on the links in the tab at the top of my blog. They always have some fabulous Christmas inspiration on their blogs.
I hope you've had a great weekend, the weather has been a little brighter which always helps.
See you soon,



Lorraine

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 

BABIES
(animals/people)
 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
