Summer Lovin'

Hi folks! Just a quick post today to share my DT card for Passion for Promarkers...this week the theme of our challenge is SUMMER LOVIN' (Anniversary, Wedding, Love etc)...
I've gone for a CAS look without too many frills...I used my Letraset markers to colour the little love birds...very simple colouring indeed! Only used 3 colours! The digital image and paper are from Pink Petticoat, I bought this set a few years back now but thought it was perfect for our challenge!

We are sponsored by Polkadoodles this week who are kindly giving away 2 prizes, stamps True Love and Proposal! They are so cute and just perfect for any romantic occassion!

Right, make sure to join in our Summer Lovin' challenge...don't forget to use your Letraset markers! I'll be back later this week with my inspiration card for Little Miss Muffet Stamps...

Pretty Purples

Hi!
Well what has happened to the weather of late? The temperature here has dropped around 15 degrees centigrade in a week...I hope that this is just a blip, I was getting used to the sun and Darcie was loving having her bath in the paddling pool outside!

Today I have a cutie to share with you from Little Miss Muffet Stamps...Sunbonnet Serene, here she is...
I wasn't sure what colours to go with until I saw this piece of gingham paper in my scrap box (which incidentally needs sorted out BIG time) and I thought BINGO...purple it is! It's more of an aubergine really...well whatever, I love these colours! I used Copics to colour, sentiment is from Penny Black.

Tomorrow I am planning on relocating my craftroom...I have once again changed ideas about where it will be housed...it's now going into the spare room and I'm doing away with the double bed and putting a daybed in to make room for my desk etc...and we (WE being hubby and I) are going to attempt to put up a flat pack bed from Ikea...I just KNOW that'll be the start of WW3!!! OMG!

Superstar!

Me again...just sharing this little sweetie from Little Miss Muffet Stamps...
How cute? This is BABE SUPERSTAR from Pollycraft, available in digi format from LMMS! SO sweet for your baby cards! This one is for a friend who is expecting a little boy in August ;-)  Coloured with Promarkers, complete with doodles and pearls! Paper is October Afternoon (same as card in last blog post). He's my inspiration for today on the LMMS Facebook Group! Big hugs xx

Pretty floral prints!

Hello! I have a pretty floral card to share today...it's my DT card for Passion for Promarkers. The lovely Julie has chosen FLOWERS as our challenge theme this week, how easy is that?! Here's my card...
I'm pleased to say the photo is a little better than the one in my last post (that was a shocker)...so you can see the colouring better. I have used this super image called BEACH HUT, which was supplied by our very kind sponsor this week, DIGISTAMP BOUTIQUE. I cropped the image at the bottom to cut off the hut's stilts and the sandy beach, as I wanted this to look more like a garden shed to go with this week's flower theme. The papers are old ones from October Afternoon. I've coloured, of course, with my Promarkers. The challenge really couldn't be easier so do join in with us!

Right, I'm in the thoght process (yes I said thought as it hasn't happened yet) of moving my craft room...my rapidly growing 1 year old is now taking over the house with her toys and clothes so I am going to have to vacate my craft room! I am psyching myself up for it, so wish me luck...

Swweeeeeet...

Hello peeps! Oh crikey, it's past 1.30am and I'm still up doing my blog post...there just isn't enough hours in the day! So this will be short and sweet...very sweet! Sugary cupcake kind of sweet...
Firstly HUGE apologies for the absolutely naff photo...no excuse apart from it was taken in my kitchen 10 mins ago under terrible lighting, so my cupcake colours are REALLY NOT good! This looks almost neon, which it is not in real life...grrr! And there's lots of shading (like on the cherry for instance) which is lost here!
This is one of 12 cards that I've done as thank you cards for Darcie's birthday... I've used this sweet SWEET Sundae Cupcake from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. The sentiment stamp is from Penny Black.  Doodles and sequins/pearls finish it off...et voila!

BIRTHDAYS...RAINBOWS...OH AND A FEW CARDS!

Hello everyone! This is a long post...

Sorry my post is a little later than planned today but it's my baby girl's 1st Birthday today...oh how time flies!!! We have had a busy morning opening lots of lovely cards and presents...then playing with all Darcie's new toys (and the wrapping paper cos that's a really fun toy!!!) So a little later than planned, here is my card for today's Passion for Promarkers Challenge, Eileen has chosen the theme FANCY THAT (add bows, lace, sparkle etc)...
As you can see this is Darcie's Birthday card... the digital stamp is so cute, she's from Tiddly Inks and is called Willow the Birthday Fairy... LOVE HER! My interpretation of FANCY is sparkle! She is of course coloured with my Letraset Promarkers (and Flexmarkers). Passion for Promarkers is sponsored this week by Little Claire Designs and Letraset...check out the challenge blog for more details! I'd like to enter this card into the Tiddly Inks Challenge-Anything Goes.

My second card today is for the Little Miss Muffet Facebook Group...our current challenge over at the Little Miss Muffet blog is RED WHITE AND BLUE! And if you don't know already, there's a DT Call at the moment! I've used this adorable digital stamp from Pollycraft, Broasca's Cupcake, available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps...
She's coloured with Copics. Scraps, doodles and buttons finish off the card. 

Ok so now a few photos of my baby girl! HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY DARCIE! I can't believe it's already a year since you entered our lives and filled them with joy, sunshine and rainbows! This was you in the hospital, so small and precious the day after you were born...
And a year on, blowing out your candles! Oh how time flies!

Today I have a card for you full of colour! It's for the new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers... RAINBOWS! It was my choice of theme this week so I hope you like it and will feel inspired to join in! I've used a gorgeous little digital stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps, this is Pippa from the Candy Floss Crew . We have an Anything Goes challenge on at LMMS at the moment...
Once again I have enlargerd the stamp on the PC and cropped the image to fit my card (she comes complete with legs lol). I've coloured her with my Tria Markers (don't forget to take part in the PFP challenge you must use Letraset products...Promarkers, Flexmarkers etc We are kindly sponsored by Polka Doodles, you could grap a fab prize if you join in the challenge). The rainbow card has been in my scrap bow forever...ideal time to use it! A bit of sparkle and doodles and she's ready to roll!
