My PFP challenge

Yes, it's my turn to choose a challenge theme for this fortnight at Passion for Promarkers, so I've made it an easy one ('cos I don't do difficult!)
Please enter projects that have 'Animals' as the focal point

I couldn't resist using the cute little elephants from MFT, I wasn't sure which one to feature, so I used all four! the design was inspired by a YouTube video from Jennifer Mcguire and you can find it here
I used the co-ordinating dies to partially die-cut the elephants from the top of the folded card blank - a bit fiddly with an electric machine, but I really like the end result

Image and dies  - 'Adorable Elephants' - MFT from Seven Hill Crafts
Paper - 'Plaid Patterns' 6 x 6 pad - MFT also from Seven Hill Crafts
Bow from stash
'Happy' die - Whimsy Stamps 
Border die - 'A2 Scalloped Borders One' - Spellbinders

I used a Tilda image
Papers - LOTV/Nitwits
Sentiment stamp - LOTV
the number 8, ribbon and button from stash
And the lovely backfround die cut was from the 'Double Scallop Doily Circle die from Whimsy Stamps

Brown and Blue

I can't believe my youngest will be off to Uni in a few days, so I have been consolation buying instead of consolation eating! I used my latest purchase on my DT card for this week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers, which is....
'Favourite Colour Combination'  Regular visitors to my blog will be expecting something pink as that is my usual choice, but I changed it up a bit and went for blue and brown. Sorry for the blurry photo!

Image - 'Bentley Bear Thank you'  - free with a magazine
Papers - 'Winter Wishes' - LOTV/Nitwits
Kraft card , enamel dots and  button from stash
The bow was from a present!

We have a fab new challenge at Passion for Promarkers this fortnight, so prepare to get glittery and add some sparkle to your projects please. (I always seem to get more on me than my card!)

To me, fairies and glitter go hand in hand and here is my DT card:

The image is from  Whimsy Stamps - I adore all their fairies, but this cutie caught my eye with her sassy stance!

No papers this time - just some glitter card which looks grey here, but is in fact silver!

Enamel dots are also from Whimsy Stamps

I cut the borders with a  Spellbinders A2 curved borders die
and finished off with some Creative Expressions glitter on the wings

I don't know about you, but although I love to see the sun, I hate crafting when everything wants to stick to me!

We are being sponsored by Little Miss Muffet Stamps and the DT were kindly given an image to work with -isn't she cute?
