I love ProMarkers Challenge

Here's a card I made using Little Claire's stamps.  It's a blatant copy of the layout of a card I found on their blog (oh well, they do say imitation is the highest form of flattery), but I loved it so much I thought I would make it for my nephew's new baby. I did change it slightly by using a Sizzlit die cut button in the middle and not the bird, lol.  I hope they don't mind.

It just so happens that it fits in with the challenge at: (I love ProMarkers) which is 3 or more layers.

I used Nesties squares for each of the four panels and mounted them onto a piece of yellow Bazzill cardstock and then layered it onto a 7x 7 white card blank.

Obviously, I used Promarkers to colour the Little Claire's image.  Oops, just realised I put the blue and green at the bottom - it would have looked better if I'd mixed them up a bit more - too late to change them now (I used extra strong tape to fix them - duh!).

Thank you for stopping by.



I can't believe it's been well over a year since my last post. I have suffered really badly from anxiety over this last year and a bit and I lost interest in crafting.  I think I'm over it now and am starting to get a bit more enthusiastic about making cards and crafting again.

I'm glad to see my favourite challenge blog Less is More is still going strong and I've have made a couple of cards to enter into this week's challenge.

This week is a celebration as it's Chrissie's 70th birthday - happy birthday Chrissie, I hope you have a wonderful time.  

The challenge is all about 'Snippets' - so here's my efforts:

My first card has used a snippet of ribbon I found in my ribbon/string bag of bits.
The image is from Miss Katie Cuttables

My next card is made using bits of card and I have used alphabet dies from Mollymoo,  stamps from Card-io and birthday die from Rob Adams:

Well I did enjoy making these - I'd forgotten how craft has the ability to absorb you into a little world of your own and take your mind off your woes.

Thank you for dropping by and I hope to be a regular again.
