The Great Outdoors

Hi crafters,
I managed to find some time to craft eventually this weekend although it's been quite a traumatic week!  My youngest has just left home to start University in Lincoln so I've not had much crafting time with getting everything ready for him!  Oh well, must think on the bright side - I'll soon have 2 craft rooms when my eldest goes back to Uni in a fortnight!  I'll need to craft permanently I think to keep my mind from worrying about them both!!

This week's fab challenge at Passion for Promarkers has been set by our lovely Lorraine C and she's chosen the nice, easy theme of The Great Outdoors',
We are kindly sponsored by Bugaboo and they are offering the lucky winner a $12.00 voucher to spend in their online store.  Their images are gorgeous and great to colour in!
We were lucky to have an image to play with and this one is called 'kidz Daisy'

The image is coloured in using my promarkers and I added a touch of glitter here and there!  I wanted the image to be the main focus of the card so I just cut some coordinating paper with my cloud border die.  I used some black card to make the colours pop and I used a diecut sentiment as well - for a change!  I almost added my usual flowers and ribbon but managed to stop myself!!  Had to have something in the corner though didn't I so I allowed myself some matching buttons!  I then walked away hee hee!!
So why not join in with this week's nice and easy challenge .  Don't forget that to be eligible for the prize draw, you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products (promarkers, flex markers etc) and of course, follow the theme.
I look forward to seeing your creations and look forward to visiting your blogs!
Hugs, Karen xx

'All in a Day's work'

Hello again crafters,
There's a great new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers this week and our lovely Linda has chosen the theme 'All in a day's work'.  She would love it if your creation could feature an occupation eg fireman, librarian, nurse etc.
We are kindly sponsored by Sasayaki Glitter this week and they are offering the lucky winner a digi image from their online store.  All their images are fab and you'll have lots to choose from.

We were lucky enough to have one of their images to play with this week and I chose 'Lucy's flowers' - she could be either a florist or a gardener I thought!
This image was great to colour in using my pro/flex markers and I really enjoyed doing the flowers!  I matched her dress and ribbon to the polka dot paper and added some embossed card to the layers.  I used my MS punch to add a border across the top and added a thin ribbon to match the terracotta pots! I added a punched flower and some tags I made using some new stamps I got at the last craft fair in Port Sunlight. I actually forgot I had them and found them whilst I was looking for something else!!  I will definitely be using these again though!!
So why not join in with this week's fab challenge and remember to use your Winsor and Newton products in order to be eligible for the prize draw.
I look forward to visiting your blogs to see your gorgeous creations.!
Thanks for dropping by.
hugs, Karen xx
