 Oh dear, calling this post late is a definite understatement! I have been sticking to my New Years Resolution of being more organised, but because I finished my card so early and have been out and about a lot recently, the post went completely out of my head! Anyway, enough waffling, lets get on to the important stuff - this fortnight at Passion for Promarkers our theme is CAS ( not my favourite, but I was pleased with my effort in the end)

The cute little image is 'Mimi and Friend' from Penny Black
Papers - 'Snow Princess' - Nitwit Collections
Bow & gems from stash

The pretty scalloped border was made using Spellbinders 'Curved Borders 1' die

Calling all animal lovers

Well, here we are, unbelievably, almost in  February! and it's time for another challenge at Passion for Promarkers.
This challenge theme was chosen by me and Ii've gone really easy on you and chosen 'All Creatures Great and Small'
As usual, the hardest part for me was choosing one image from the many animal ones that I posess, so I've not gone with something cute and cuddly like I normally would and have settled just for cute!

Image - 'Turtle Flowers'- Bugaboo
Papers - 'Isabelle 6 x 6 pad - Dovecraft
Cute wooden ladybirds -Hunkydory

Dies used: Spellbinders 'Circles', 'Scalloped Circles' and Marianne Designs - 'Circle & Flower Stitch'

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
