I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas, I can't believe it's already 2019!
And so, I have been back to work on some DT cards and my first one this year is for our 'Add A Sentiment'challenge at Passion for Promarkers

The cat, cupcakes and sentiment have all come from the 'Mew Are Pawesome' stamp set from Time for Tea Designs.

Paper -PlaidPatterns' 6 x 6 pad by My Favourite Things
I used Creative Expressions 'Pinpoint Checkboard' embossing folder and the circle is from Sue Wilson's 'Looped Snowflake' die set

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
