Love Balloon... I love ProMarkers GDT .

It's my last card as this months GDT over at I love ProMarkers.
Now I thought the theme was Black and white but it was changed at the last minute and I didn't know but luckily it still sort of meets the new theme which is Lace and Pearls.
 The flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts and include Roses of different sizes, baby's breath and rose buds. There are 2 different Marianne dies used for the hearts and swirls. The papers are Papermania capsule range and I have coloured the image with ProMarkers and paper pieced her dress. Love balloon is a stamp from LOTV.

The gems and mirror card are from my stash. Sadly there is no lace but oh well...The customer loved it :)
I can't wait to see what everyone else makes for the challenge,

Butterfly baby

Afternoon Folks,
It has been absolutely bitterly cold all day and I have only managed 2 teeny walks with Scooby. I hate the cold and as I have trimmed his "hair" I didn't want him to get cold either.
Today I am sharing a card I was asked to make for an up coming Christening.
I have used Butterfly Baby by Saturated Canary.
The papers are a mixture of First edition and Dovecraft. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and so are the pearl stems. I have used a spellbinder Square heart die and have used ProMarkers to colour.Lace, ricrac and ribbon are from my stash There's a bit of bling on her wings and the flowers too.
See you soon, Lou x

Dirt bike Mike

Hiya guys,
Not really feeling too brill today. Quite lethargic and although I have tons of new goodies to play with I am just not feeling it. Hopefully I will feel better after some fresh air and a walk with Scooby.
I have used Promarkers to colour in. I got the idea for the background from Alyssa. I have used papers from my stash and you can't really tell but the front of the card is cut diagonally so the green papers you see are actually inside the card. The stars are a sizzix die and I have decorated the inside to match but forgot to take a pic (again)!!
I am off for my walk now,
Bye, Lou x

Anniversary surprise

I had some of my birthday goodies delivered yesterday from "Dies to die for". Can't wait to use them. I got papers, dies, stamps, charms....oh it's soooo exciting. I also went and got £50 worth of 
Promarkers yesterday to add to my collection. I do feel very blessed :)
Today's card though I made a few days ago. It uses the Anniversary Surprise from Lili of the valley. I love it!
I have tried to keep the colours quite neutral and soft. I used Promarkers, stickles and some glossy accents on the shoes. The flowers are from WOC. Papers are J'adore from First edition. Sentiment is computer generated and the ribbon and heart are from the Range.
I have decorated the inside and the box to match but forgot to take the pic , whoops!
Catch you later,

It's my birthday!

Hi Guys,
I just wanted to mark the day by doing a really quick post. I am 38 today and have been spoiled rotten. Gifts, a meal out, takeaway food and nearly £300 in cash. I am going to be getting some new dies from MFT and who knows what else.
I wasn't going to post a card on here today but it's my friends birthday as well so this is the card I made for her.
I shall be back soon to let you know how wisely I have spent my money :)
