My turn at Passion for Markers

 It doesn't seem possible that it is already my turn to choose a theme for the new challenge at Passion for Markers - it comes around so quickly! And after being super oganised last time with scheduling my post a week before the challenge - this time I am a day late!

To make my life easier, I have chosen a nice easy theme of 'Use A Die.'  It diesn't matter what type of die - as long as at least one has been used on your project. 

Our sponsor is Rachelle Ann Miller




and I have used one of her cute images on my DT card:

Papers - 'Candles and Cake' - Nitwit Collections

Dies used - 'Square Notched Corners' - Crafts Too
and finished off with some balloon and star die-cuts

Challenges:

'Anything Goes' - Pattie's Creations

'Anything Goes' - Lil Patch of Crafty Friends

Alsea

 Morning crafters, I'm off on a last minute visit to my sister in Mallorca, but I have been very organised (most unlike me) and got this post scheduled to tell you about our latest challenge at Passion for Markers - Linda would like you to 'Use 3 of Something' on your projects which is being sponsored by Leann's World 101




I have used 3 sea-shells on my DT card :


Image - 'Alsea'coloured with Promarkers - Leann's World 101 
Paper - Etsy
Sentiment - Kanban's 'Holly Hobbie'
To make the frame I used 'Scallop Stitch Square 7' die from Maximum Crafts
I cut the mermaid out using my Scan 'n cut, but it had a funny five minutes and cut it wonky, so I had to finish it cutting by hand - not easy or very pretty when only using one hand! 😂


Challenges:

'Anything Goes' - I Love Promarkers

'Anything Goes' - Creative Inspirations

'Anything Goes' - Allsorts

'Dies and/or punches - Dream Valley  

'Feminine' - We Love Stamping



Thanks for dropping by!

Feeling Flowery

Our sponsor is Colour Of Love




I used  an image from our sponsor as it fits the theme beautifully with all those pretty flowers! and made an inverted easel card - love this shape:

I am here to tell you about the first challenge over at Passion for Markers for 2024 and Linda has chosen the theme of 'New Beginnings'

My DTcard is somewhat of an LOTV fest 😂,

Papers are from a discontinued LOTV paper pad

Finished off with a bow and pink pearls
