Make A Wish

It’s a brand new challenge at Passion For Promarkers today and it was my turn to pick to pick the theme. I have chosen ‘Animals’ a nice easy peasy one, so no excuses! We are being sponsored by Bearly Mine Designs.


The prize is a fabulous £10 voucher for the online shop, so pop over to PFP to see what the DT have been up to and get crafting.

My card features one of the newer images from LOTV. I have been trying to be good and have not bought anything for a while, but I have had my eye on the scrumptious LOTV paper pads for a while now and then when I saw these cute little fellas, well I caved! I didn’t go mad, however, as the new stamps are available as a sketch pad of black and white images – at 30 images (3 x 10 designs) for only £6, I thought they were an absolute bargain and a lot cheaper than buying 10 stamps. My only worry was how they would colour up with my Promarkers, but as you can see, they are great! I even had a go at some free-hand drawing and was quite pleased with how my candles came out on the sentiment.

As usual, I wasn’t overly happy with the photo, but after reading up on some photography pointers I have come to realise that the problem may be with the camera after all – yes I know a bad workman blames his tools, but it seems that the problem may be damage to the lens inside which may have occurred when I dropped the camera a while ago (don’t tell my husband!), so now I’m on a mission to try my sons’ cameras to see if it makes a difference! Watch this space!
