Saddle Up!

This fortnight at Passion for Promarkers the theme is 'Hobbies/Sports' which is ideal as it meant I could colour up an LOTV stamp that I have had for absolutely ages and never used, how rude! The DT have worked their usual magic, so please pop by the blog to have a peek and leave some love! You have 2 weeks to get creating - I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Happy New Year!

So, it's a new year and we have a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers. The theme this fortnight is a nice straight forward one to ease you into the new year and is - 'Anything Goes'
It couldn't get any easier, could it?

The DT were allowed to choose some images from the sponsor who is Crafty Sentiments Designs
and I chose 'Stanley Happy Days' as I thought it was perfect for a New Year's card and here it is:

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

We have another fantastic (and easy!) theme at Passion for Promarkers this fortnight, we would like to see projects featuring 'Cute Animals' - told you it was easy!  My only problem was searching through my boxes of cute images  and narrowing it all down to 1!  but narrow it down I did, and managed to kill two birds with one stone as I made a Christmas card to add to my (pathetically small) pile!

The oh, so cute image is 'Mistletoe and Mice -Stampavie
Paper  is from 'Gilded Winter' 8 x 8 pad - Trimcraft (most of these these papers are foiled and are Gorgeous!)

New challenge at Passion for Promarkers

It was my turn to choose a theme for this fortnight's challenge and as usual my mind was blank, so I have gone for a rather boring, but nice & easy theme of your 'Favourite Colour Combo'

I was so excited to find out that LOTV have released their rubber stamps in digi form, for an extremely inpatient person like me, this is a dream come true. So I headed over to their website, filled my basket and 5 minutes later had some gorgeous digis on my computer for immediate use!

So,l of course I had to colour one up straight away and here she is in my favourite combo of pink & green:
