My PFP Challenge

Oh gosh, it's Tuesday again! This fornight's challenge has been set by myself and the theme is 'Use ribbon and/or lace, yet another easy one for you all! I have opted for just ribbon on my DT card and had to draft in my official  bow maker - my 16 year old son, I have got a proper bow-maker, but have you ever tried to use it with one hand? impossible, so my son has learnt to make a perfect bow since I had my stroke, bless him!

Passion for Promarkers is 7 years old! and to celebrate we are having a special Anniversary challenge - you really need to get over to the blog to see what fabulous prizes are on offer! No less than 11 prizes!

The theme is easy peasy - 'Spots and/or stripes' so what are you waiting for? I can't wait to see your lovely projects

I have recently discovered Redonkadoodles and I have used an incredibly cute fairy for my card
I seem to be in a bit of a blue 'phase' at the moment,  which is funny as it isn't one of my favourite colours, but I was pleased how this turned out.

No DT card from me this time, but I wanted to show off this card  that I made for a friend who is moving soon. It is made mostly with Sue Wilson dies - my new addiction! I just can't stop watching her Youtube tutorials and then of course I HAVE to buy the dies she's used! Help!
