Something Old

Can you believe it's almost November?  I went into panic mode recently as I hadn't started my Christmas cards, so I decided that this week's DT card for our challenge at Passion for Promarkers should be a Christmas card, well, I suppose that's a start!
Our theme is 'Use Something Old' which for me is the pretty wintry paper - I've had it for ages

Image & sentiment- from 'Gnome' stamp set - Apple Blossom
Paper - 'Frosty Christmas' 8 x 8 pad  - LOTV
Pearls & ribbon - The Hobby House
I used the 'Falling Snow' embossing folder from Creative Expressions and a stitched border die for the snow bank
Finished off with a foamiran poinsettia

Feeling Floral

It's time for another challenge at Passion for Promarkers, I really don't know where the time goes!
This fortnight our Lorraine has chosen the theme of 'Flowers' The sun has brought the gardens to life in my corner of the world and so, inspiration shouldn't be a problem, but if it is, just head over to PFP to see what the DT came up with here
I kept my card fairly simple:

The flower stamps and dies are a magazine freebie, 
I embossed them with gold embossing powder before colouring them with my promarkers, 
popped some lattice behind the hexagonal( die from Sue Wilson) aperture,
added some LOTV paper to the inside back of the card and finished off with a die- cut 'Happy' (Whimsy Stamps), a peel off 'Birthday' 
a bow and pearl.
