It's Our Anniversary

Yes, as the title says, although I find it hard to believe that our anniversary at Passion for Markers has come around again! To celebrate, our theme this week is 'Anything Goes' so, no reason not to join in the fun! If you head over to the  PFM blog, you can see all the fab inspiration from  both DT teams as well as check out all the fabulous sponsors and their prizes

One of our many sponsors is LOTV, one of my all time favourite stamp suppliers and the company that got me into stamping all those years ago! So, I am using one of their gorgeous polymer stamps for my DT card:
