Wow - these are absolutely amazing prizes I'm sure you'll agree.
This is my card for the challenge:
I used a design from a recent workshop and used a stamp that was a freebie with a magazine ages ago!  I coloured the baubles with my promarkers, cut them out by hand and added a topper that was another magazine freebie!  I embossed the white card and added some leaves, holly and snowballs to the top.  Some chain peel offs and a few pearls were the finishing touch!
It just goes to show that you can use your promarkers for anything - it doesn't just have to be to colour an image.
Well I hope you'll be able to find some time to join in with this Mega Christmas Challenge - it will be running for the next 4 weeks.  Team 2 are posting their cards this week and in 2 week's time, Team 1 will be sharing their cards with you.
Thanks for dropping by and good luck with the challenge!

Their images are amazing and I've used one of their digis entitled 'Autumn Breeze'.  She's absolutely gorgeous and I've used my promarkers to colour her in. I die cut all the leaves in white card and used my distress inks to give them the autumnal colours!  I added some cones I collected on my walk last week and some glitter and pearls were the finishing touch!

We were lucky to have one of their images to use on our cards and I chose this one, 'Christmas Deer'
I've used a layout from a recent workshop and all the backing papers have been inked with 'Antique Linen'.  I inked the edges of the poinsettia with a white gel pen and added glitter to the edges. I inked up some leaves too and after colouring the image with my promarkers, I added some frantage to the edges.  A sentiment and a few die cut trees finished off the card.  I added some glossy accents to the eyes and a lot of glitter on the trees - doesn't show in the photo unfortunately!

I've made a 1st Birthday card for a friend's daughter this week and used an old Digistamp Boutique image,
I decided to go with a white and yellow colour scheme and found the perfect dotty paper for the background.  I embossed some white card for one of the layers and added some punched flowers and swirls.  I added a bit of glitter to the image and die cut the number one,  A bit of ribbon and some pearls for the flower centres finished off the card.

We were lucky enough to have one of their images to use on our cards this week and I chose this gorgeous digi called -Alice the Alpaca'.
I chose my fave colour combo of pink and green for my card.  I just used a bit of Tea Green promarker for my Alpaca to match my papers and added a bit of glitter here and there!  Aren't all alpacas this colour?!!!
I added a grass diecut as well as a pearly border to the bottom of the card and a bit of ribbon and heart diecut on the top.  The sentiment stamp was a magazine freebie and the enamel dots just finished it off.
So why not join in with this fab challenge and be in with a chance of winning a great prize.  Just remember to use your Winsor and Newton products on your creation and I look forward to visiting your blogs.
