Animals at Passion for Promarkers

It can't really be Tuesday again, can it? Well, if that's the case we have a new challenge for you at PFP and it couldn't be easier - the theme is 'Animals', so, pop over to the challenge blog to see what yummy prize is up for grabs and see what the Team 2 girlies have been up to....

The problem I had with this challenge, was which image to use, I have many adorable animal stamps, in the end I opted for this cuie from Helz Cuppleditch's 'Riverbank Revels' range. The papers are so bright and cheery, I need to hang on to summer for a little while longer!

The stamp and paper pad were freebies in Papercraft Essentials

The bows are also from the 'Riverbank Revels' range

Dies used - Spellbinders 'Stately Circles', 'Classic Circles'

& the smallest die from 'Floral Ovals'


- 'Birthday Wishes'- Incy Wincy 

'Anything Goes' - Sister Act

'Anything Goes' - I ♥ Promarkers

'Birthdays - Fussy & Fancy

Thanks for visiting!

Horray, If I've scheduled this post correctly, I may actually be on time for once!  At Passion for Promarkers this week,  we would like to see projects inspired by our theme of 'Fun In The Sun' I don't know about the rest of the country, but down here in the South East it has been glorious for some time now and so it was nice and easy to get in the mood to make a card for this theme.I have chosen a fabby image from Tiddly Winks as it was my nephew's birthday and the little boy in the image looks just like him, along with his dog too!

Image - 'My Beach Boy' - Tiddly Inks coloured with promarkers, I added some glossy accents to his sunglasses and 'frosted lace' stickles to highlight the water. 

The papers are actually cardstock from a local craft shop

The wonderful mdf shapes came from an Ebay shop

Twine  and button brads from stash

Sweet Trio

Despite spending a week in Kings College hospital recently and recovering at home from the brain surgery - yes, there is still some left to be operated on, lol! I have actually had a lovely time lately,

My  recent letter sent to  Papercraft Essentials magazine was awarded the star letter prize - an amazing  parcel of crafty stash  from Craft Creations arrived just as I was discharged from the hospital - what a fabulous welcome home!

I also recently won the challenge at Dream Valley and the prize was a choice from the wonderful range of digi images at All Dressed Up - I chose 'Three Little Christmas Girls'

aren't they just gorgeous!  I made them into a card for a recent challenge at Passion for Promarkers , but didn't get it posted in time for the challenge as I was attached to my hospital bed at the time!Don't let that stop you though, there is a new challenge from the Team 1 girls this week, so head over here. But I decided they were just too cute not to post them at all, so here are my Three Little Christmas Girls carolling their hearts out!

The papers are  from one of the Nitwit pads available at LOTV
The embossing was done using a Fiskars plate - so old now!

The lace is from Trimcraft

Kraft card,button, gems and lamp post are from my stash

I've also used the 'Musical Notes' die from Tattered Lace and 'A2 Scalloped Borders One' die from Spellbinders Borderabilities and a Hobbycraft snowflake punch

I also got  a Top 3 place at Tiddly Inks, I hope you don't think I'm showing off! I'm just so happy that other people still think my crafty efforts are worthy as there was a time when I wondered if I'd be able to get back to card-making at all.
