Good morning from a nice bright North West England lets hope it stays that way.
Today would have been my Sisters 51st birthday so i am hoping she is having a good day with the angels.
Back to my post today is the start of a new challenge at Passion For Promarkers and we have a nice easy one.
so that means pretty much anything goes just make sure you colour something with the correct pens and please state on your post as we have had a few that hasnt mentioned and would hate to have to discount them in the draw.
This weeks challenge is sponsored by 
so now let me share my card with you using day dreaming'

I coloured my image with Promarkers and used some Saddle back Ribbon.
My backing is actually a stencil from FolkArt sent to me by a good friend(thanks Janette)
I used distressed inks in  3 colours and the blue is a promarker
I then stenciled over the corners with Brown ink through some sequin waste.
A gem gems and Chip Board letters to finish off.

I hoping this will kick start me back into Crafting as i am struggling still after this bug
Well thanks for popping by and please pop over and checkout the teams awesome samples for your inspiration.

Off to get ready another Doctors appointment today

Anything Goes with Some Odd Girl at Crafty Catz

Good morning and wow another week has disappeared but at least we are getting more day light always nicer and easier to Craft with.
This week at Crafty catz we have a brand new sponsor
and wow was the team excited to be allowed to pick an image each to work with.
Not only that but the have given a discount code for the week for anyone entering our challenge. Now you really do want to enter with one of their images apart from there being soo many fabulous designs. If you are the lucky winner and you have used one of their images your prize will double. How great is that. can i enter lol.

So now you have the details of our sponsor and before you head over and grab that code let me share my card with you. The team was set our ususal twist with is optional by our host Janette - Keep It Simple.

So the image i picked was Hipster Phototgraphy Cat.

Coloured with promarkers and pencils and then fussy cut.
As It was to keep it simple I didnt want to add lots of layers so found this Photo Slide die in my box which I thought would be a nice background to place the image.
Stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment in the corner and added some small gems scattered round for that touch of bling.

This is not my normal and how you CAS people make it looks so easy I dont know. This sure was a challenge but I did enjoy colouring my Cat and liked how it turned out. 
What do you think Hope the sponsor likes.
