Ribbons/Bows

Hi crafters
It's my turn to host the challenge over at Passion for Promarkers this week and I've chosen the nice and easy theme of  'Ribbons or Bows'.  It could be your Birthday or Christmas cards so why not join in with my challenge and be in with a chance of winning a great prize!
We are kindly sponsored by Uniko Stamps and they are offering the lucky winner 1 stamp set from their online store (which must be in stock).

This is a card I made for my niece for her 18th Birthday last week.  Sophie loves greeting everyone with a hug so I thought this image and sentiment was perfect for her!!


The image is by Stamping Bella and I've used my promarkers to colour it in.  I found some papers to match my colour scheme and die cut the flower from the same papers too.  I added a black die cut border which I then almost covered completely!!  Some glitter (of course) and the polka dot ribbon were the finishing touches.  I hope she liked it anyway!
I hope you can find a bit of crafty time to join in with my challenge this week and I look forward to visiting your blogs to see your lovely creations.  Remember, it doesn't have to be a card - just make sure you use your promarkers and follow the theme!

See you soon,
Karen xx

Use Something Old

Hi crafters,
I'm away visiting my boys this week in Norwich and Lincoln! Great excuse for a little holiday and a chance to explore these 2 lovely cities!
I made my card for this week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers before leaving and the theme this week is 'Use Something Old'.
We are kindly sponsored by Crafty Sentiments Designs and they are offering the lucky winner  a choice of 3 digi images from their online store.

I've made a leaving card for someone at work who loves sewing, especially quilting.
I used an old House Mouse stamp which I coloured with my Promarkers.

I added squares of patterned paper and added some faux stitching to look like quilting. I added some buttons and a wooden scissor embellishments.  Some flowers and a bow finished off the card, I hope she liked it anyway!
Please join in with this week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers if you can! All you have to do is use your Promarker products and of course, follow the theme.
I look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations soon.
Hugs, Karen xx

Add a Sentiment

Hi crafters
This week's challenge over at Passion for Promarkers has been set by our lovely Elaine and she would like you to 'Add a Sentiment' to your creations this week - nice and easy!
We are kindly sponsored by The Paper Shelter who are offering the lucky winner a choice of 3 digi images from their online store.

The Paper Shelter

All the Design Team have used the same gorgeous digi from The Paper Shelter this week on their cards and she's called Ballerina

I've made a swing card this week using this gorgeous image,  I learnt how to make one at our last workshop and thought a bit of movement on the card would be ideal for this dancing ballerina!
The papers are from a pad I got at 'The Works' and all the edges have been inked with a distress ink.  The sentiment is Welsh for 'Happy Birthday' and I finished it off with some ribbon and pearls.
So why not enter one of your creations this week and be in with a chance of winning this fab prize!  Just remember to use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products and of course, follow the theme!
I look forward to seeing your gorgeous designs.
Hugs, Karen xx

Mythical Creatures

Hi crafters,
Hope you're all having a good week! My babies are both settled in Uni now so I've set up my craft room in their bedrooms!!  Miss them like mad but I may as well make use of their rooms hee hee!! It's time for a brand new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and this week, our lovely Nat has chosen the fab theme of 'Mythical Creatures'.
We are kindly sponsored by All Dressed Up stamps and they are offering the lucky winner a choice of 2 digi images from their online store.

We were lucky enough to have one of their images to use on our cards this week and I've used this one which is called 'Little Flower Fairy'.

I loved colouring in this image - she is so sweet!  I found this colourful backing paper so decided to use the same colours on my flower fairy!  I die cut a frame and decided to keep my card clean and simple (shocking I know!!).  Well, I couldn't help adding one flower in the corner - especially when I found a button in the exact same colours as my card!  I stamped a sentiment next to the image and added a couple of enamel dots and then I walked away from it before I added anything else!
I hope you can join in with the challenge this week,  Don't forget to use your promarkers and of course, follow the theme.
I look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations.
Hugs, Karen xx

'Use 3 of something'

Hi crafters,
Well I'm throwing myself into some crafting again as both of my boys have left home for Uni!  You kinda get used to them being home over the summer and then they leave again - it doesn't seem to get any easier :(
Aw well - thank goodness there's a brand new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers for me to focus on!  Our lovely Lorraine has given us the fab theme 'Use 3 of something', nice and easy this week!  Could be 3 papers, flowers, pearls - anything you like!

We are kindly sponsored this week by Bugaboo Stamps who are offering the lucky winner a $12 gift code to use in their online store.

We were lucky enough to have one of their images to use on our cards this week and I've used this one called ''Flower ladybug love',


I've coloured the image with my promarkers and added lots of glitter on the flowers.  I coloured the punched leaves with the same green as the image and punched out some daisies to go either side!
Some enamel dots went in the centre of the flowers and I used my MS punch for the black border.  I added a little ladybird embellishment so then I had my 3 of something (ladybirds!)

So why not join in with this week's challenge and be in with a chance of winning some fab new digis from Bugaboo Stamps.
Remember to use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products and of course, follow the theme.  I look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations.

'Add Buttons'

Hi crafters

Sorry for the late post today - had to go back to work after 6 weeks off and it was such a shock to the system that I forgot to do my blog!!
Anyway, our lovely Linda has chosen the brilliant theme of  'Add Buttons' this week, for our brand new challenge at Passion for Promarkers.  Nice and easy as I think I probably add buttons to most of my cards!!

We are kindly sponsored this week by Cowling & Wilcox and they are offering one lucky winner a 6 pack of promarkers (pastel tones).
  

I've made this Welsh Birthday card for my computer mad son and this image was perfect for him!
I've used some monotone papers from 'The Works' and coloured the image with my promarkers.  I added a diecut silver star, some enamel dots and of course, some buttons!!  Buttons are always handy for those tricky male cards!

So why not join in with this fab challenge and be in with a chance of winning a great prize,  Don't forget, you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card.  Just remember to use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products and of course follow the theme. 
I look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations.
Hugs,
Karen xx
