I ♥ Promarkers DT Card - Vintage/Retro


At last here I am with my I ♥ Promarkers DT card!  'm very late posting on my blog.  The week has just been a whirlwind of social events and Christmas prep and of course still trying to fit in all the usual house work and chores!

Our theme this week is Vintage/Retro and we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter!

I was lucky enough to be able to pick a sponsor image for the challenge so I chose 'Little Hazel' as I thought it fitted with our theme really well.  It's been coloured with Promarkers of course.

The papers are LOTV as is the sentiment stamp.  The Ivy corner dies are by Marianne.  All other dies by X-cut.  Trimcraft Ribbon and pearls finish off my card.

That's all from me tonight it's time I was in bed!

Night all xx

I ♥ Promarkers DT Card - Anything Goes

Good evening,

I'm still playing catch up and my to do list is taking on a life of it's own!  Tonight is the only full night I'll have at home this week!  Is everyone else snowed under or is it just me and everyone else is organised and calm???  My 'duties' tonight include cleaning out the hamster cage, dying my hair and thankfully, making a card if I ever get to it!

So on to the important bit... today is the start of another fab challenge over at I ♥ Promarkers, this week our theme is everyone's favourite 'Anything Goes' and we are sponsored by the fab Dr Digi!

For my card I used a fun image from our sponsor called 'Snow Fun' which I've coloured with Promarkers.

The paper is Trimcraft The Night Before Christmas and was a recent magazine freebie.  I've used Tim Holtz letter stickers and a felt snowflake, button and twine to finish off my simple card.

That's all from me - back to my chores!

Dream Valley DT Card - Punches and Dies


Wow, what a busy weekend!  A normal weekend is busy for me but right now I feel like I'm running around like a headless chicken with all the Christmas shopping and extra activities going on.

Ok, so on to my card...  Today we have a new challenge starting over at Dream Valley Challenges, our theme this week is 'Die-cuts and Punches' and we are sponsored by Di's Digi Designs.

For my card I've gone for a Helz Cuppleditch stamp which I've coloured with Promarkers.  I got it in a Hobbycraft sale a couple of years ago but this is it's first outing!  I really love it and I'm a bit ashamed I've never used it before.

I've used a paper from my Folk Florals 12x12 pad and have used an EK Success paw print border punch on the bottom edge.  As well as the puch I've also used Memory Box Precious Hearts dies and X-cut circle and scalloped circle dies.  The sentiment is by LOTV and my card is finished off with some gingham ribbon and a toning button.

That's all from me for the moment, I'm off to write some to do lists - lots and lots of to do lists!

I ♥ ProMarkers DT Card - Winter

Good Morning,

A scheduled post from me today.  Today we have a fab new challenge starting at I ♥ ProMarkers, our theme this week is 'Winter' and we are sponsored by Marianne Design who have a great prize lined up for our lucky winner.

This week the DT had free reign to use a stamp or digi of their own so I plumped for 'My Friend Flakey' from Sugar Nellie, which I coloured of course, with Promarkers.

The paper is by Hot Off The Press and was part of a Christmas Inspiration magazine/stamp/cd combo I picked up a couple of years ago.  I've used a dull Champagne coloured metallic card to die cut a border (Frostyville Border from Memory Box) as well as Snowflake corner die and Precious Stars also from MB.  The sentiment is a freebie from Netty's Cards which I've coloured blue with Promarkers.  I've finished off my card with some matching ribbon and a gem which is dark grey in real life but looks amber in this photo!

That's all from me just now.  Please be sure to check out our challenge and see what the rest of the DT have been up to.

Shona xx
