Week 45 at Passion for Promarkers

Hi all we have our other PFP boss choosing the challenge this week and Gina would like to see you using two stamps.

We also have two new DT members joining the team this week. Please give a great big welcome to Emma and Tracey... pop over to their blogs as they have extra prizes to give away this week.

My card this week has been made with a Tilda that I bought 2 years ago at the NEC and I thought I had lost or thrown it away with the bags but when I was moving from one room to the other I found it and I also found unused this bench stamp, so I have used them both for the first time this week.

This little Tilda is just so cute with her little puppy and I have used SU papers and my new SU heart punch and stamp for this card.

I am taking a little break from the PFP DT for a couple of weeks due to pressures at work but I will be back later on and before my challenge at the beginning of May.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)

Easter Cards

I don't really do Easter cards but I had this Marie Curie set from last year that had never been opened and it has this cute little daffodil in it.
So I guess they are happy spring cards really!!!

I have stamped the daffodil onto yellow BG papers and cut it our twice and stuck two together with sticky pads to give it a little bit of dimension.

These little 3x3 cards have been made for the children to go with their eggs.
The cute little image is a diggi download from sqigglefly

Sun is shinning again today not that I am moaning but if the forecast was to be believed it was going to be a rainy day today so nothing special planned.
Still I have a nice roast lunch to look forward to later at my son's house... love it when I don't have to cook.

Have a great day whatever you are going and thanks for looking Sue :o)

Passion For Promarkers Week 44 Spring

This week we have a fabulous theme for you at PFP chosen by our PFP boss Denise... great theme boss!!!
Denise wants you to make a Spring themed project including an animal.

I have made some little bags which hold 2 bags of treat size mini eggs perfectly... just right to give to those you love at Easter.

Sorry I can't help with the paper as it was an odd piece in my stash and the little Daisy Mouse stamp is the the first wood mounted stamp I ever bought...she is old but she has a special place in my heart.

Have fun with this week theme and thanks for looking Sue :o)

I have used the high hopes image "SWEET little thing" such a versatile little image I have used it for both male and female cards.

The papers are my ever faithful DCWV "The SWEET Stack" I do love them with their little bit of sparkle, and the sentiment is SU.

A very SWEET little card this week!!!

Have fun with the sketch challenge and thanks for looking Sue :o)

Happy Mothering Sunday

I have a busy day ahead of me tomorrow so I thought I would wish all you Mum's a happy Mothering Sunday tomorrow and I hope you all get spoilt rotten (I guess if you are like me you end up doing the spoiling!!!).

This is the card that I made for my Mum which you can see here, but I decided to make it into one of these fab boxes that I have been seeing on lots of blogs.

Have a lovely day and thanks for looking Sue :o)

Birthday Card for Jayne

My colleague at work has her Birthday on Sunday and she is feeling a little cheated this year as she will be celebrating Mothering Sunday and her Birthday together.
Here is the card I have made for her and for the first time in a while I actually like what I have made!!!
I think I am veering more and more towards the simple clean and simple style of card.
This very cute LOTV Teddy was bought just before Christmas and this is his first outing... there are lots of new ones available from LOTV that are super cute but I decided I must use this one before even thinking about ordering any of the new ones.

Don't forget it is DIGI FRIDAY over at PFP

Thanks for looking Sue :o)

Passion For Promarkers Week 41 Theme

This week at PFP we have a theme for you to play with chosen by our DT member Caryn and it is "Back to Nature".
You will see from our DT examples this is very open to interpretation.

I have used a Hangler Image that was sent to me by a very kind person some time ago.
My colour scheme is yellow and green these colours remind me of nature at this time of year with all the new buds appearing and the primroses and daffodils I really love Spring Time.

The papers are Kaiser "little Miss" the sentiment and ribbon are SU and gems from my stash.

Have fun and I look forward to seeing your cards.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)
