 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!

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)

Image - 'Sweet Nectar' - Leann's World 101

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

Sentiment - Kanban's 'Holly Hobbie'

Dies used: corner die from Sue Wilson's 'Austrian Collection' and Craft Too's 'Square Notched Corners'
