Passion For Promarkers DT

Good Evening! I didn't get chance to post this yesterday, better better late than never, here is my DT card for this week's Passion For Promarkers challenge, where we want you to use


I've been dying to use this LOTV cutie, since I got her. She's adorable. The papers are by Glitz Design - Happy Travels. The border die under the heart ribbon is a Doo Hickey.

We are lucky to have two fabulous sponsors for this week's challenge. Digi Stamp Boutique are offering one winner a £10 voucher to spend in their online store.

And our lovely former D-Teamie at Michele R Designs is offering our other winner a prize of $10 of her digi papers available from Whimsy Stamps

Check out the wonderful inspiration of my fellow D-Teamies at the Passion For Promarkers blog.

I am entering this at Deep Ocean Challenge, where their theme is 'Happy Birthday.' And likewise at Stampin' For the Weekend who have the same challenge.

So we're just over half way though the working week. It always feels like the end is in sight when you get to this stage! Looking forward to meeting up with a friend this weekend, so it can't come soon enough. I've also got a trip to Ikea planned. Hey-ho you can't have it all! Enjoy the rest of your week.

Thanks so much for looking.

Anything Goes at Divas By Design

Good Morning! I'm back with my Divas By Design DT card, where this week we has a nice simple challenge for you,


I coloured this adorable Sugar Nellie cutie with Distress Inks. It's quite a big stamp, so you can't see much of the Prima - Fairy Belle papers. The dies are all Doo Hickeys with the exception of the heart scroll across the bottom, which is from Memory Box.

I hope you'll pop along to the Divas By Design blog to see the wonderful inspiration of my fellow D-Teamies.

I am entering this at the Sugar Bowl, where their challenge is to use Fairies.

There you go for now. I'll be back later with my DT card for Passion For Promarkers which I haven't had chance to post yet. I'm busy, busy, busy at the moment it seems, but don't ask me what with. I've nothing to show for my time!

Anyway, hope you are all having a good week. Thanks so much for looking.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx

Divas By Design - Let's Celebrate!

Check me! Nothing for ages & then 2 posts in 2 days. Though I nearly missed posting it, duh! This is my card for this week's Divas By Design Challenge where our theme is 


As soon as I saw this LOTV cutie, I knew I was going to put him on a card for my son, Ben. When we go to my parents for Xmas we have a sign like this to remind Santa where we are. He's coloured with Distress Inks & the papers are Bazzill Basics - Believe. The sentiment is LOTV too, curved to fit the Doo Hickey banner. The snowflake is by Joy Crafts.

You can just see the Polar White Flower soft I used on his fur trims in this photo. So I'm still in a celebratory mood from Xmas, what about you? January is such a dreary month I want to cling on to Xmas feel good factor for as long as possible. Check out the fabulous creations of my fellow D-Teamies at the Divas By Design Blog & celebrate with us, whatever your reason! Our sponsor this week, is the fabulous Stamp & Create.

I would also like to enter this in the following challenges

Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Winter Wonderland - Teddy Bears

So there you go. That's it from me for now. First full week back at work & OMG is it only Wednesday yet? Come on weekend, where are you? Hope you're all coping in this horrible weather. We've had it pretty good in Manchester, compared to the south & coastal regions. I hope everyone out there stays safe & that these storms are over. Fine weather is forecast for the weekend, yay!

Thanks so much for looking.
Big Hugs,

I know it's a challenge that sends some crafters running for the hills, but it's one that I'm increasingly coming to embrace. Great for quick cards! This fun loving little fella is 'Give Big Boy' from Saturated Canary. I made him for Ben's birthday, one week before Xmas. Bad planning or what!!

I hope you'll pop on over to the Passion For Promarkers blog to see the fabulous inspiration of my fellow D-Teamies & to find out the winners of our Mega Xmas Challenge. This week's challenge is sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs.


I am entering this at Cute Card Thursday where their theme is to 'Banish the Blues'.

At Stampin' for the Weekend, 'Anything Goes'

I have not done much crafting over the festive season. What I did do I managed to send before I took any photos, Duh!

Anyway, I wish you all the very best for a happy & prosperous 2014. Thanks so much for looking.

Big Hugs,
Andie xx
