I will be back...

Hi Guys,
Just wanted to let you all know that I am still around but have a lot going on at the minute including my first Obstacle course race this weekend. I am doing Tough mudder North west with my brother.
Very excited, bit nervous but can't wait. It's been taking up a lot of head space so hopefully next week I may feel a bit more free.

Will keep you posted,

Make your own backing paper- ILPM Challenge

Hi guys,
This post was meant to go out yesterday but I am a total div, thought I had finished and scheduled it .....but I hadn't....duh!!! This is Rusty from Squigglefly. He is just so good to colour. I gave him a big shiny hooter and his collar and ball have some glossy accents too. I used a few Pro's to colour him and he was pretty much made in 20 mins and that included making my own backing paper which I made with a Die-namics stamp and tumbled glass distress inks.
He has a few pearls and goodies from Chelsea's cheeky fimo charms and he was good to go.
So make your own backing paper and head on over to the new challenge at I LOVE PROMARKERS!!!

Photo inspiration at I love Promarkers

The new challenge is just starting over at I love ProMarkers. It's Photo inspiration and here it is
I tried to use colours as close as possible. I loved making this card. The image was a freebie from Kenny K a while back but you can get it Here!

I have used a mix of papers and the ribbon was from Baker ross. They sent me a big bag of goodies which I have been playing with on lots of projects. The ribbon has a really nice quality to it.
The flowers are wild orchid crafts, a marianne die cut swirl and there are some bits and bobs from my craft shop.
I hope you pop over and take part as there is a prize from Polkadoodles up for grabs,

Add some stripes

It's Thursday but this week all my days are merging as Iam off from work on holiday. I am not going away though just trying to catch up with things around the house and crafting.
Today I shall be making curry, getting my eyebrows waxed (ouch!) and making a couple of cards(hopefully).

Anyhow...the new challenge has just kicked off at Milkcoffee and it is Add stripes. How you interpret this is up to you (I used stripy papers)
I used Charlotte with umbrella and coloured her with my Promarkers. I used Love letters paper pack and added a Flower. The pearls and ribbon were from my stash.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.....don't forget to take part HERE!!!

Hi All, 
Sorry this post is a little late but yesterday Blogger would not let me sign in so I couldn't finish my post.
Anyhow, here it is....The new challenge at I love Promarkers is Fancy folds.
The sponsor is drDigi and you have a chance of winning 2 fab digi stamps.

Ihave done a centre opening card which is a change for me. I was pretty chuffed with how it turned out. I used LOTV love balloon coloured with my Pro's. The bits of bling were from my stash and the fab papers are Do crafts. All this was layeredonto chocolate brown American crafts cardstock.
Thanks for looking today and make sure to take part here!!
