Passion For Promarkers - Going Green!

Happy Tuesday Everyone! You know what that means! Time for another Passion For Promarkers challenge. This week it's a colour challenge & we want to see you using shades of green in your creations. Our wonderful sponsor is Pink Gem Designs & the lucky winner will win one of their fabulous images.

I have to say, I don't often go for green, unless I'm colouring leaves or grass! So this was actually a struggle for me. I don't have many green DPs either, but nonetheless I've gone all out green!

This little cutie is a Sugar Nellie Manga. I made it for a boy at my son's nursery who was celebrating his 4th birthday. More about that later. But as a result I kept it rather plain. IRL it is actually a bit more interesting than it appears on the photo. The swirl paper is actually flocked & is very touchy feely. The photo has not picked up the ribbon across the middle very well either.

I hope you'll now pop on over to the PFP blog to see the fantastic work of my lovely D-Teamies. They've been excelling themselves yet again! Don't forget to enter our wonderful Aqua Marker giveaway, courtesy of Letraset.

I used the fab sketch at Friday Sketchers for my layout, so I would also like to enter my card there.

As it turns out this card is still in my possession. We were a little late getting to Ben's friend's party. We'd been to see Toy Story 3 at the cinema & it finished a little later than anticipated. I realised there I'd left the card at home & had to quickly buy another. Then we couldn't find the house where the party was being held! Unfortunately Ben must have eaten too many sweets at the cinema, because within 5 minutes of finally getting there, he threw up everywhere. I was just mortified, ever wished the ground would just swallow you up. Needless to say, after I'd apologised about 1000 times, we left! After a lovely bath at home, Ben was feeling fine within the hour! Kids eh, who'd have 'em!!

So there you go. Hope everyone is having a good week.

Thanks so much for looking.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx

Oh you poor thing! I would have just died too! I'm sure the mom understood though.
I agree, green is difficult, I hardly ever use it unless grass or leaves, I do LOVE your card though. I need to break from my zone and try it huh? Your coloring is just perfect for this little guy, I like him a lot.
Well, I need to email you, I have a lot to tell you!
Hugs, Dena

Fab card hun, love the colour scheme. Poor Ben being poorly, I understand your embarrasment though, people with kids are used to these things tho. Hope you are all ok.
