Passion For promarkers & Creative Card Crew DT Double Header

Happy Tuesday one & all! I have 2 cards to show you again today. My first comes with some happy news. I have been asked to join the Creative Card Crew DT & this is my first card for them. Yippee!! Our challenge for you this week is to


I keep moaning about taking my photos in artificial light. However, when I took my pictures of this card it was bathed in sunlight & it looks just as bad!! The Prima Botanical papers look really washed out, whereas IRL they match my colouring a lot better, honest!! This is my favourite Tilda, she's coloured with Distress Inks & I used a Heart Swirl Doo Hickey up the side & a Sizzix die in the corner. The flowers were cut with a Spellbinders die.

The Thank You sentiment is a bit big for the card, so I may have to replace it. I don't have many 'Thank You' stamps. I mustn't say it often enough!! For
 this card I used the lovely layout at Sketch Saturday
 so I would also like to enter my crad there.

We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp this fortnight. Our lucky winner can win a fab voucher to spend at their store.


So now please hop on over to the Creative Card Crew blog to see the wonderful creations of my new & fabulous D-Teamies & give them some love :~)

However, before you do I just want to show you my other DT card today for Passion For Promarkers. My gorgeous D-Teamie, Julie has chosen this week's challenge to use


This is one of my favourite snowmen images. I don't have many, but I just love this Kraftin Kimmie snowman. The papers are MME & I overstamped the Kraft background with a massive snowflake stamp I won along with the big acrylic block to stamp it with at Sketch Saturday. You have to squint quite closely to see it because the ink isn't very good, but it's by Impression Obsession from the Craft Barn. I love it!! It's brilliant & there are a whole host of other background stamps I need to save up for!

For this sketch I used the great layout at Stamptacular Sunday.

We also have a wonderful prize at Passion For Promarkers, where we are sponsored by Some Odd Girl who will give the winner their choice of 3 of their wonderful digis.

My awesome D-Teamies at Passion For Promakers have been excelling themselves again & you need to check out the PFP blog to see what they have been up to.

Oooooh dilemma where to go first? CCC or PFP. Why not both & if you can combine the 2 even! I leave it up to you.

So for now, that's it from me. I just want to thank you so much for looking.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
