I love orchids, but I'm not the greatest when it comes to keeping them. First I overwatered them, then I underwatered them or just forgot altogether. But I'm getting better and was so chuffed I hadn't killed my latest orchid, I decided to take a photo of the beautiful flowers... 
And would you believe it but this beauty is still in flower!

So as it's my turn to choose the challenge over at Passion for Promarkers today, I've gone with a photo inspiration... And of course I've used my orchid picture. I've made 2 cards for the challenge this week, The first is using an image from our fab sponsor, Time for Tea Designs... 
This lovely lady is called "girl with giant ice-cream", I coloured her with Promarkers. 

For my second card I used an old Penny Black stamp... 
This one was coloured using aqua markers and derwent coloursoft pencils. 

If you fancy joining us and want to be in with a chance to win 3 digi images from Time for Tea Designs, then pop over to the Passion for Promarkers blog for all the details. Remember though, you must use your Windsor and Newton (formerly  Letraset) markers on your creation. Thanks for popping by x

Blooming Days

Hey folks. Hope you all had a lovely break over Easter, and managed to get a bit of crafting in.

Ok, for today's challenge at Passion for Promarkers we have the theme BLOOMING DAYS, just add flowers to your creation. They can be in the image, or add as embellishments, or both. Here's my card...
I've used a stamp from the Miss Anya Collection by The Greetings Farm... this is quite an old image but I thought she was perfect for the theme with her little flower basket. The sentiment is from the Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler clear stamp set.

This was a quick card I made for my daughter to give to a friend, so I've used minimal shading etc with my Promarkers on the image. Then just a few flowers and some twine to embellish.

If you'd like to be in with a chance to win the fab prize from our sponsor ALL DRESSED UP STAMPS then pop by the Passion for Promarker blog to be inspired by all the lovely creations the DT girls have made. Then add your creation before next Tuesday. Thanks for popping by today xx

Put some Spring in your step!

Hi folks! Can you believe that winter is almost over? I can't say I'm not pleased, even if we did have fun during the snow last month! Spring is my favourite season, I love the warmer, but not too hot weather, the baby lambs etc running and jumping in the green fields and of course the pretty Spring flowers that are popping up!

This week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers is... SPRING! Perfect! Here's the card I made with a pretty digstamp from our fab sponsor this week...

For this card I used the Blooming Lovely Set from Digistamp Boutique, both the image and the sentiment are from the set. Colouring is with my Promarkers of course. I teamed this with some pretty paper, twine, sparkle and my usual doodles et voila!

Remember me?

Hi Folks...well it's been a long long time since I posted here...I won't bore you with the details but lets just say ill health gets in the way of many things. 

Happy New Year Everyone! I'm hoping 2018 will be a kinder year for me...and I'm hoping that I'll be able to get more crafting in this year.

I haven't made a card, or coloured in what seems like forever, but as it's my choice of challenge this week at Passion for Promarkers I decided to get my markers out. I chose a photo inspiration for the challenge, here's the inspiration...
Yummy cupcakes! Here's what I did...
I've taken my insoiration from the colours and the frills on her dress remind me of the icing on the cupcakes. This is Polka Dot Pals Princess from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. She's coloured with Promarkers.
