Passion For Promarkers DT

Yay! It's time for another fab challenge at Passion For Promarkers. This week we're playing


This is Anya Treats by TGF. I made this really sweet & simple as the image is quite big & I just wanted it to have centre stage. The papers are Basic Grey - Bittersweet.

So here's the Bingo board to play along with. I went straight down the middle with gems & lace. I hope you'll hop on over to the Passion For Promarkers blog to see what my wonderful D-Teamies made of it.

I am entering this at Anyone for Anya, where, this week, 'Anything Goes'.
Also at Bunny Zoes, the theme is 'Girly' so this is being entered there too.
So how about this weather then? Is it cold enough for you? I don't mind the cold so much, it's the biting wind that I'm struggling to cope with. We've had no snow here in Manchester either, which is disappointing. I was really hoping to make a snowman with the boys :~(  I'm fed up of the cold now, so lets see some signs of Spring pleeeeaaase!!
Anyway, thanks so much for looking. Hope you're all keeping snug & warm.

Divas By Design DT

Finally! I totally forgot to post this, Duh! If you haven't already seen our latest challenge at Divas By Design is

Friends of ours are expecting their second child next month so I made this with them in mind. I love this super cute Saturated Canary image - Butterfly Baby. He's coloured with Promarkers & the papers are MME - Portobello Rd, given to me by a very dear friend. They're not baby papers, but I thought the colours were just right for a baby boy. I cut the fishtail with a Die-namics die & I used an Impression Obsession die (I think!) for the butterflies. I also left space for baby's name when I find out what it is, as long as it's not too long!

Check out the creations of my fellow Divas By Design D-Teamies. We're lucky to be sponsored by the wonderful Bunny Zoes Crafts this week. I love that store!

I am also entering this at Stampin' For The Weekend, where the challenge is ' Child's Play.

At Stamp with Fun this week, 'Anything Goes'.

So hope you have battened down the hatches. Looks like we're set for snow tonight. Manchester has escaped any snow of real significance so far. Maybe tomorrow the boys will finally get chance to build a proper snowman. Well, it'll probably be left to me to do all the hard work! Wherever you are, hope you manage to stay safe & warm. I can't believe I'm having to say that in March. Spring allegedly started yesterday. Hmm, really?!!!

Anyhoo, that's it from me for now. Thanks so much for looking.

Passion For Promarkers DT

Good Morning! Time for another challenge at Passion For Promarkers. This week it's my lovely D-Teamie, Eileen's turn to choose our theme & she wants to see


I used this gorgeous Geisha, called Green Lady from A Day For Daisies. She's so demure & beautiful. I kept it all quite simple with Basic Grey Kioshi & used Doo Hickey dies for the flower & a Marianne die for the leaves(?).

I hope you'll now check out the wondeful creations of my fellow D-Teamies on the Passion For Promarkers blog. We are sponsored, this week, by Clearly Besotted Stamps who are offering the 'Going Places' stamp set as this week's fab prize.

I am entering this at Simon Says Stamp where their challenge is 'A bit of Green'. As long as that's all they need. My card isn't quite suitable for St Patricks Day, LOL!

At Stamptacular Sunday, the theme is 'To Die For' so I am also entering this there.

Well that's all for me for now. I've taken the day off today to crack on withthe decorating. This is just taking forever! I part because we've been away so much of late at the weekends recently. I keep reminding myself that it will lok fab when it is finished though. Sometime in 2015 at this rate, LOL!

Have a great week. Thaks so much for looking.

I am entering this at Papertake Weekly this week where I used their great sketch for my layout.

So are you all set for the weekend? I'm excited as my sister is over from France with my beautiful niece & nephew. It's always so lovely to see them as I only get chance a few times a year. Anyway, got to get to bed as I have to pick them up early from the airport in the morning. Whatever you are up to, have fun.

Thanks so much for looking.
