Passion For Promarkers DT


Hellooo! Time for another Passion For Promarkers challenge & this week we want to see your creations featuring our 

FOUR LEGGED FRIENDS


This is 'My Best Friend' from All Dressed Up & the papers are from MME. Not much else to say really!!


I love this image, but I can't decide if I like the card or not! I thought the papers would look lovely, but they're actually a bit much.

I'm entering this at Sketch Saturday as I used their fab sketch for my layout.

I also realised I entirely forgot to post my last DT card for Passion For Promarkers last fortnight. So here it is. Two for the price of one!


This is a Sylvia Zet image for Whimsy Stamps & the papers are Lili of the Valley.


So that's all from me today. Hope you're having a good week. Thanks so much for looking.

Big Hugs,
Andie xx

Passion For Promarkers DT

We're back at Passion For Promarkers with another fab challenge to get your teeth into. This week, our lovely Jane has chosen the theme of

MILESTONE BIRTHDAYS


This is the wonderfully cute & totally yummy, Strawberry Cake Birthday Fairy from a Day for Daisies. I made her quite CAS, for my little niece. I'm imagining tiers of delicious cheesecake with lashings of fruit.


So get yourself on over to the Passion For Promarkers blog & check out the fabulous inspiration of my fellow D-Teamies. We've been sponsored by Letraset & the fabulous A Day for Daisies this week. I love their cute & quirky images.

Sorry this is a little late this morning. Posting totally went out of my head when I learned of the sad news about Robin Williams, one of my all time favourite actors & comedians. They say that laughter is the best medicine & I know how much his humour made me happy. What a shame we couldn't do the same for him. RIP xx

That's all from me for now. Thanks so much for looking.

Divas By Design DT... Finally!

Didn't quite get chance to post this this morning, but I've finally managed! Here's my card for this week's Divas By Design challenge, where our theme for you this week is 

UNDER THE SEA


I dug out some of my oldest stamps for this challenge. They're all (probably long retired) High Hopes stamps, coloured with Distress Inks. With a touch of white acrylic marker & lots of Glamour Dust! Sadly the photos do not do the sparkle justice. I covered the fish in Glossy Accents & immediately regretted not using Crackle Glaze. But then I accidentally dropped one face down & voila, texture!! So I then had to 'drop' the other too!


This is for our wedding anniversary next month. Not an obvious choice for an anniversary card I hear you cry. But the sentiment on the inside (below) makes it a little more romantic! I actually made him a very similar card years ago. There's a test for him. I wonder if he'll remember - no pressure, lol!


I hope you'll join us at Divas by Design for our challenge this week, which will is sponsored by the wonderful Crafty Ribbons


I am entering this at Papertake Weekly & Crafting from the Heart, where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.

Well, in Dec 2011 I made my first card for the Divas By Design DT. All good things must come to an end & it is with a heavy heart I have decided to step down. I want to try lots of new crafty things. With 2 gorgeous children, an almost full time job & just life in general, crafting time is increasingly scarce to experiment in new directions. My decision also opens the way for some new lovely & mega talented ladies to join the Divas family. I'm sure they will enjoy the journey as much as I have. I'm also grateful for the opportunity to have worked with lots of wonderful crafters on the Divas DT & will miss them all.

 So watch this space to see where my creativity takes me!

Thanks so much for looking.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx

Passion For Promarkers DT - Weddings

Hello! There's a new challenge on at Passion For Promarkers, chosen by my lovely D-Teamie, Donna. Her theme is 

WEDDINGS


This is 'To Have & To Hold' from All Dressed Up. I love the simple, naive elegance of it. I kept this simple, but added Glamour Dust to give her wedding dress a bit more wow! I've seen a lot of sequins around blogland & thought they would make perfect confetti.


So I hope you'll join us for this week's Passion For Promarkers challenge. Our lucky winner will receive these uber cute images from our lovely sponsors, PolkaDoodles.

Bride & Groom Digital Stamp Download

That's all I've got to show you for now. Just enjoying the Commonwealth Games. What a wonderful summer of sport we're being treated to. I just wish it could inspire my efforts at the gym a little more. This hot weather is making it really hard work! Oh, that sounds like I'm complaining about our lovely weather. I'm not, I love it, or at least when I'm outside in it! No, my main gripe is that I need to go to the gym at all. If only I was naturally slim & athletic. I make running look like such hard work!

That's all for me then. Thanks so much for looking.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx

Passion For Promarkers DT - Xmas in July

Morning! I've got another card to show you for our new challenge at Passion For Promarkers. This week our theme is

XMAS IN JULY


I used this adorable Sugar Nellie digi with First Edition - Festive Treats papers. The little snowflakes are from a Martha Stewart border punch. I never actually use it for borders, just the off cuts!


Pop on over to the Passion For Promarkers blog to see the fab inspiration of my fellow D-Teamies.

I am entering this at Sketch Saturday where I used their fab layout for my card.

At Creative Inspirations they want to see cards celebrating 'your favourite occasion'. Xmas is the "most wonderful time of the year" for sure!

So that's all from me for now. Thanks so much for looking.

Big Hugs

Divas by Design DT

Yo Yo!! How're things? I've got my latest DT card for Divas By Design to show you today as we launch another fab challenge. This week it's

THINGS WITH WINGS


I think I'm getting deja vu. This is the same challenge theme as for my last card for PFP. However, I used Distress Inks to colour this little cutie form Sugar Nellie. She quite an old image I think, but new to me, called Hello Little Robin & I've wanted her for ages. The papers are LOTV - Woodland Wishes, & the sentiment from Memory Box.


So you need to get on over to the Divas By Design blog to see the wonderful creations of my fellow D-Teamies. Our sponsor for this week's challenge is the wonderful Crafty Charlie.



I've used the fab layout at Sketch Saturday for this card so I would like to enter this there.

At Totally Gorjuss they're looking for 'Bling'. I've used lots of gems & I hope you can see the sparkle OK.

So that's me for today. Hope you're all having a good week & enjoying the lovely weather while it lasts :~)

Thanks so much for looking.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
