The Sugar Bowl - Sketch by Kathy

Hi all! Firstly thanks for the advice about Internet Explorer, at least I'm not the only one who's having problems (makes me feel better). I've had some success today and have been able to visit a few blogs, but IE has started playing up again so will call it a day (Mmmm...for a minute I thought I'd cracked it). So instead I thought I'd share my card with you, it's for The Sugar Bowl Challenge - a lovely sketch by Kathy...


You have to include pearls on your card, so I've used a little pearl brad...


Ok, the image is of course Sugar Nellie (Leanne Ellis Design) coloured using brush markers, the papers are Stampin' Up "Tea Party"...I just love these, green card is embossed using the Cuttlebug Perfect Paisley embossing folder, brad is Papermania, spacer is from The Hobby House, rest is from stash.

Last night my gorgeous hubby surprised me with some lovely Pro Markers, my very first! I was so chuffed, but as it was around midnight and I had to get up early this morning I haven't had a play yet...so I'm off to have a half hour with my new markers! I'm not sure how to use them yet, so if anyone has any tips or knows of any tutorials I'm all ears...thanks!

Gorgeous card Shelly. Good luck with your new Promarkers, you can blend them if you use the closest colours, just have a play and enjoy, they are great pens. If you visit my blog and follow the link you can enter the first Passion for Promarkers challenge, there are some fab prizes including a full set of 92 pens.

Oh wonderful card, so pretty, I love the dimension. Hope IE sorts itself out soon. Have you tried Firefox? we use it at home and have had none of the blogger problems I keep reading about. Kim
