Passion For Promarkers-Special Anniversary Challenge

Way Hay!! Happy Anniversary to us, Passion For Promarkers is 6, yes six years old & we're celebrating in style. To celebrate we have a special challenge for you this week with lots of prizes, & that challenge is to create a card with

NO SENTIMENT 


I've used a gorgeous Saturated Canary image, Tilly for my card. The lighting in my photo does not do justice to my papers. They are pretty old & called Juliette, by SEI I think. The flower was created with a Spellbinders die, the heart stems are Impression Obsession (again, I think?) & the spiky leaves were cut from a Marianne die.
  

So onto the prizes. Check out the full details & the fabulous inpsiration of all my gorgeous D-Teamies at the Passion For Promarkers blog, but here's an idea!

Relaxing at Passion For Promarkers


So, another Tuesday, another new challenge at Passion For Promarkers where we're still in Bank Holiday mode, assuming your Bank Holiday wasn't too hectic! Lovely Kelly has chosen our theme this week & she wants us all to 

KEEP CALM & CHILL OUT



I've used Me Time Anya from The Greetings Farm for this one. I kept it very simple in the hope that the sequins would look like bubbles coming from the bath tub. Not sure it really worked though :(


Have you checked out the wonderful inspiration of my fellow D-Teamies at the Passion For Promarkers blog yet? Play along with us this week for a chance to win the Changing Birdhouse stamp set, kindly donated as a prize by our fab sponsor, Little Claire Designs.

Little Claire


I am entering this at Papertake Weekly this week, where 'Anything Goes'.


So hope everyone in the UK had a great Bank Holiday weekend. Brace yourself for a couple more days electioneering & then it will al be over until the next time. Unfortunately, if we get a hung parliament, that might be sooner than you think! Politics would be a great thing if politicians were straight talkers & could answer a question honestly! I won't tell you how to vote, but please make sure you use it!! Right I'll just climb down from my soap box. Hope you enjoy the rest of your week.

Thanks so much for looking.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx

Happy Easter!





Thought I'd also share a couple of images from Easter. The first is one of the Easter cards I made for the boys. 

I would like to enter this at Lawnscaping Challenges, where the challenge is to add dimension. I hope you can tell the bunnies are on 3D pads. I've just reviewed how similar this is to the card that inspired it & I really must give credit to Nichol Magouirk as the real talent behind it. She is such a wonderful source of inspiration.

At Allsorts Challenge the theme is Easter, so I am entering this there too.


The second is the elusive & lesser known Easter pheasant (always overlooked in favour of his more popular friend, the Easter bunny!), photographed in the field behind my Mum & Dads house.

Big Hugs,
Andie xx

For a Special Lady at Passion For Promarkers


Good Morning! Time for another fun challenge at Passion for Promarkers, where this weeks theme has Mother's Day in mind, but it could be for any female. it just has to be

FOR A SPECIAL LADY


While this may not be an overtly feminine card, it is for my Mum, who doesn't really do fussy, fancy fairies, girly etc. But as a child I loved the story of Squirrel Nutkin, so this harks back to then. The image is from A Day For Daisies & the papers are LOTV - Country Lady.


Just to prove it is a card for a special lady, here's the inside which was all stamped with Mama Elephant sentiments, as was the message on the front.


So play along with us this week & hop on over to the Passion For Promarkers blog to see more fab inspiration from my wonderful fellow D-Teamies. Our sponsor this week is the very generous Polkadoodles, who are offering our lucky winner these to fantastic digi images.

At Papertake Weekly there theme is is 'Mum's the Word'. As I said, this isn't the most girly of cards, but it's genuinely the card I am sending to my Mum.

So there you go for now. Hope you're having a good week. Thanks so much for looking.
