Make us smile

Hi crafters,

I'm back with my card for this week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers - wow, these week's are flying by aren't they!!
This week's theme has been chosen by our lovely Lorraine C and it's "Make Us Smile",
We are very kindly sponsored by Aurora Wings who are offering the lucky winner $15 worth of digis.
As always, to be eligible for the prize draw you must use your Letraset products and follow the theme!  Don't forget to say which Letraset product you've used on your creation.
For my card. I've used one of the gorgeous images from Aurora Wings called 'Cupcake Sprite' and she was absolutely gorgeous to colour in with my promarkers.
I made the card in a recipe book style and we made one of these in one of our workshops ages ago so I thought I'd make another one!  The recipe includes - Mix together with a handful of smiles, so I thought it was perfect for this challenge!
I used a daisy punch for the flowers and added some chalk to the centres to match the colours in the card and a bit of bunting gave it the Bake Off feel (now that it's back on our screens!!),
As it's an Easel style card, I added another little book with the sentiment and a little die cut spoon! Some ribbon and pearls were the finishing touches and I inked the edges with Antique Linen.
I hope you like my little card - it was nice to make a different shaped card for a change!!
Thanks for dropping by and don't forget to enter the challenge!
Good luck
Hugs, Karen xx

One For The Boys

Hi Crafters,

It's time for a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and this week's theme has been chosen by our lovely Lorraine B and it's 'One for the boys'.
We are kindly sponsored this week by Digi Stamp Boutique and they are offering the lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to use in their online store.


I've used a fab image from DSB called 'Golf Alf' and it's a great image to colour!  It was also ideal for my golfing mad brother so it was the perfect image for his birthday card!
I coloured Alf with my promarkers to match the backing paper and added a teeny bit of glitter to the grass!!  I embossed the white card with a circle pattern and added some white card candy which looked a bit like golf balls?!!  I distressed the edges slightly with Antique Linen and added some buttons in matching colours to finish off the card.  I usually struggle with the male cards but enjoyed making this one!

So why not join in with this week's challenge and don't forget to say which Letraset products you've used on your creation!
Thanks for dropping by and good luck!
Karen xx

My Favourite Things

Hi crafters,
It's my turn to host the Passion for Promarkers challenge this week - my first one and I'm really excited!!
I've chosen 'My Favourite Things' as the theme.  It can be your favourite image, papers, style of card, flowers etc and don't forget to use your Letraset products on your creation!
We are sponsored this week by All Dressed Up and they are offering the lucky winner 2 digis from their online store,  There are some really great images to choose from - you'll be spoilt for choice!
                                                         All Dressed Up stamps
I've used the gorgeous All Dressed Up image 'For Your Wedding Day' for my card.  I needed it for a friend's Birthday so I decided to use this image without the text as she loves shoes!!  I went for a dramatic colour scheme for a change as I love grey and pink together - my favourite colour scheme!!  I also used my favouire WOC flowers, ribbon and pearls and added some gorgeous pink glitter to the heels!!  Wouldn't mind a pair of shoes like these myself!!

So why not join in with this week's challenge - just choose your favourite things and remember to tell us what Letraset products you've used.
I'm looking forward to seeing all your creations, good luck and thanks for dropping by!
Hugs, Karen xx
