New challenge at Passion for Promarkers

A new challenge is underway at PFP and it's yet another easy one, we are so kind to you! We would like to see your projects using your '3 favourite colours', so pop over to the blog for some inspiration and to see what fabby prizes are up for grabs.

I usually opt for green and pink, however, I fancied a change and as luck would have it, I had been asked to make a card for the greenkeeper at my mum's bowls club, so I chose some more masculine colours and have gone for beige, blue and brown. I was asked to include bowling, drinking and lawn care on the card, pheww! But then I realised that I only had to pop in to Digistamp Boutique as they had all three subjects in the shape of 'Alf' and 'Jim'

                                                                                and inside:


Images - 'Bowling'Alf ,'Cheers Alf', Alf & Beer, 'Jim Mowing Lawn' - all from DSB
Papers - 'Winter Wishes' Nitwit Collections - LOTV
Dies used - 'Starburst' - Joanna Sheen

Challenges:

'Lots of Layers' - Whoopsi Daisy

'Different Folds or Shaped Cards' - Fussy & Fancy
