This week at Passion For Promarkers the theme is one of my favourites - ‘Bingo’. Pick any line of 3 items to use on your card and the rest is entirely up to you.

We are being sponsored by Bugaboo who are offering 7 digi images as the prize.

The DT have come up with some fab inspiration and there is a real variation of cards, so please pop along to the Passion For Promarkers challenge blog to see them all.

I ‘killed two birds with one stone’ for this card as I was asked to make a card for a colleague’s father’s wife (still with me?!) for their anniversary. I’m afraid I went into panic mode as it’s a while since I was asked to do this and the brief was quite vague - ‘big and with flowers’! I don’t know about anyone else, but when I’m given such a broad spec I find it more difficult to decide what to do. However, I started with the flowers and realised I had the perfect papers from Live & Love Crafts which I won last month and a fab digi from Stitchy Bears (another win – I’ve been very lucky recently!) After that the card came together fairly easily and I’m surprised to find myself having made 2 vintage style cards in one week when I’ve never attempted one before! I popped everything onto an 8” x 8” card blank and am keeping my fingers crossed that it will go down well. As usual, the card is much prettier in real life, but I’m trying not to obsess so much over my bad photography!
