Passion For Promarkers - Family

Good Morning! I'm back with my Passion For Promarkers DT card, where this week, my lovely D-Teamie Donna, has chosen the theme of 

(ie, a card for a family member)

This is the card I made for my hubbie, Paul's 40th birthday. He's a bit (lot!) of a gamer. This image is 'High Score Hugh' from Dr Digi's House of Stamps. OK the stomach is a little larger (only a little!) & the hair a little bit greyer (not much!) than Paul's, but otherwise he's an almost spot on likeness! The papers are MME - All Spice.

I hope you'll pop on over to the Passion For Promarkers blog & check out the fabulous creations of my fellow D-Teamies. Our sponsor this week is Michele R Designs who is most generously offering our lucky winner $10 worth of her fab digi papers.

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

Spotlight on Passion For Promarkers

Good morning & a Happy Tuesday one & all! Time for another fab challenge at Passion For Promarkers. Our theme is chosen by the wonderful, Jane. She wants to see your cards 


I kept this very simple as my image is so large. This is an old (but classic) Penny Black stamp called Fashionably Wrapped. She's so chic & elegant, she totally reminds me of me... not! I wish!!

I've never used this technique before & in all honestly, for this card at least the jury is out! My favourite bit is the red Stickles on the holly berries. I have to say, it was very quick & easy to make. But I wish I'd left room for a sentiment.

So how're you getting on with your Xmas cards? I need to get cracking on mine. But I got a bunch of birthdays as well. Oooh I'm scaring myself now! Don't you find it hard to choose the right image or look for those most important in your life. Because I make my own cards, I want the recipients to enjoy them almost as much as the present I buy. That's quite a pressure to put myself under! Anyhoo, I'll have to get cracking sooner rather than later.

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

Getting Digi with it at Divas By Design!

Hello! Oooh I'm rather late posting this as our latest challenge at Divas By Design went live this morning. I've had such a busy day I'm only just getting round to doing it. Our theme for this week is to 


I love the cute robin images at Bugaboo. This one is Winter Scarf. He's coloured with Promarkers & the papers are by Memory Box (love these!). The fir die is by Marianne Design.

We are thrilled to be sponsored, this week by Bugaboo. Pop on over to the Divas By Design blog to see the fabulous creations my wonderful D-Teamies have made with more Bugaboo images.

I would like to enter this at Papertake Weekly, where 'Anything Goes'.

At Totally Gorjuss, 'Anything Goes with Snow'.

So what's taken me so long to get around to writing this post. Well, yes OK I should have had it scheduled, but I thought I'd have time to do it before work this morning. But this evening, I went to see Jack perform, with his school class at the Royal Northern College of Music. He has a couple of lines & sang brilliantly. I am sooooooo proud of him.

So there you go for now.. Thanks so much for looking.
Big Hugs,
