Christmas is Coming!

In just one month it will be Christmas Eve...are you ready?

Soooo another Christmas card from me today...for the new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers...CHRISTMAS IS COMING!
The beautiful robin image is a digital stamp from JustInkLined, you can find it HERE. Colouring is done with my Promarkers. I've used a Christmas tag for the sentiment...recycling lol! The white distressing is acrylic paint using a dry brush effect. The dies I used are from Die-Namics (numbers) and Britannia Dies (Ponsettia).

The challenge this week at Passion for Promarkers is sponsored by Letraset, who are offering a limited edition set of Promarkers to one lucky winner! Remember to use your Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Trias or other Letraset products to be in with a chance to win!

Just one thing before I go...bear a thought for all the people who will be preparing for a Christmas without loved ones following the terrible events in Paris and other places around the world, my heart goes out to them all.

Bleu Blanc Rouge Quentin

Hi peeps...
A week ago today the world witnessed the tragic events that unfolded in Paris over one terrible evening. All those lives and families destroyed, it's so sad. In the days after the attacks I watched the news, read the papers and felt a huge sense of sadness...

Today my card is in the colours of the Tricolor, this is Candy Floss Crew Quentin...
You can find him in digi format at Little Miss Muffet Stamps http://www.littlemissmuffetstamps.com/Candy-Floss-Crew-Quentin_p_1583.html
Coloured with Promarkers.

Courage, La France.

Winter is on it's way!

Hi folks!

Crickey the weather has taken a turn for the worse this week, last Sunday the sun was shining and it was 20°c...today it's been grey, drizzly and flippin' freezing {sigh}! So, today's card has a winter theme...if you can't beat it, embrace it lol!
The beautiful little winter bird image is Winter Chickadee by DoveArt Designs, available from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. If you're looking for a classic design for you cards, this will definately fit the bill. I coloured with Tria Markers, there's not a huge amount of colouring to do so it's great for quicker makes! I've added doodles, of course, and a lovely ponsettia to finish it off. Twine and pearls with a bit of glitter add a bit extra.

Thanks a lot for my regular visitors...I really appreciate your comments ;-)

Stamp - Winter Chickadee (DoveArt, Little Miss Muffet Stamps), Colouring - Letraset Tria Markers, Papers - Made by ME 6x6 pad, Ponsettia - Medium and Small Ponsettia Dies (Britannia Dies)

You're so old it's scary!

You know the feeling when you want to forget how old you are on your birthday? Well if you don't...you're lucky! Anyway this week's challenge over at Passion for Promarkers is SPOOKY BIRTHDAY, here's my card (I went with the age thing I mentioned above lol)...
So this little stamp is from Penny Black...it's been a LONG time since I used a one of these! As there's no colouring involved on the image, I used Flexmarkers to make the spotted background and my Letraset fineliners for the doodling (0.1 and 0.7 sizes). Our kind sponsor this week is BUGABOO who are giving away a generous gift voucher! Pop by the PFP challenge blog for all the details!

Pretty Papers...

Hello peeps!

Remember I was telling you in my last post all about a new craft shop that had opened near me...well I went back yesterday and bought lots of new, pretty papers! You know it's so long since I treated myself to some new papers, I got quite excited looking through my new paper pads! I bought 5!!! And some of them have glitter on them ooooohhhhhh! So, today's card, for Little Miss Muffet Facebook Group, features two of my pretty papers...
The bottom paper has sparkles but it's not easy to see on the photograph. I LOVE the leaves though! The digital stamp is Polka Dot Pals Olive...LOVE HER...and the sentiment is from the Under The Weather Chester rubber set.

I coloured her with my limited number of Copics, so her hair is a little wild...also I struggled a bit with her hair...need to brush up on my colouring! I added some doodling, including the underline and exclamation mark on the sentiment, and a few navy blue pearls! Simple as that!
