Happy Halloween card

 We have another fun challenge for you all at Passion for Markers this week and Linda would like to see projects that are 'Anything Other than Christmas'

Our sponsor is Dr Digi's HOS and I have used one of their images to make a Halloween card - not the sort of card I usually make, but I love this fun image, so here it is warts and all (my card, not Wilma lol!) my bright green promarker decided to die on me mid card, so my colouring's a bit patchy!


Image - 'Witchy Wilma' - Dr Digi HOS coloured with Promarkers and Spectrum Noir Tri-blends

Paper is from an old LOTV pad

Finished off with some cobwebs cut using a Joanna Sheen die and some green gems


Thanks for visiting!

A Cheerful Snowman!

 Well, it's Tuesday again - it comes round so fast! And that means we have a new challenge at Passion for Markers and this time, Karen would like to see some doodles on your projects.

The DT got to play with an image from our sponsor - The Paper Shelter and we chose this cute snowman, as usual it amazed me how the same image can be used so many different ways so do pop in to the blog to see what the other girls have come up with!

I wasn't happy with my doodling in the corners and so, I added some more to his hat - much better!

Butterflies

 After watching the Queen getting a lovely send-off, I realised that I hadn't created a post for tomorrow's challenge at Passion for Markers - so here it is! 

Warning - butterfly overload!

We would like you to 'Use A Rubber Stamp' on your projects this time, something I much prefer to do as my ink always seem to smudge when I colour digital stamps!

I have used an 'oldie', but a 'goodie' from LOTV on my DT card



Image -  'James - Butterflies' - LOTV coloured with Promarkers and Hunkydory Tri-Blends

Blue checked paper - ~Phill Martin's 'Frosted Essentials' 8x8 premium inserts paper pad

The frame, blue butterflies and sentiment are all from the 'Butterfly Ballet' die set from The Paper Boutique

Finished off with a bow and Hunkydory gems

Challenges: 

'ATG with dies' - Happy Little Stamper

Walkies!

 I'm back to tell you about this week's challenge at Passion for Markers and this time we want to see 'Cute Animals' on your projects please

Di's Digis is our sponsor and she has tonnes of cute animal images to choose from, but in the end, as an owner of a very cute l'il Westie, I just had to opt for this image which I flipped and coloured one in blue and one in pink (Spectrum Noir Tri-blend markers). I made them into a 'Triple floating diamond card' - following Sam Calcott's YouTube video

Unfortunately there haven't been too many walkies  for us recently due to the heat! We are waiting for some cooler weather and then I think there will be some marathon walks in order!

The finished card was a bit tricky to photograph - sorry about the background of the back of my house!

Papers - Etsy

Finished off with bows and a doggy charm

Hummingbird in turquoise

We have a new challenge this week at Passion for Markers and Karen would like us to 'Say it with Flowers' 

We are being sponsored by Leann's World 101 and I have used one of their images for my DT card which is a little outside of my comfort zone of 'cute' but the image is so pretty, I hope I have done it justice (not a particularly 'real life' colour scheme, but one of my favourites)

Papers - 'Perfect Partners' (mint and white) - The Paper Boutique

Turquoise card - Creative Expressions 'Foundation Card'
