Passion for Makers challenge make it bloom

 Hello and welcome my sleep pattern is getting more crazy with the Toko Games but how amazing are these swimmers and we are doing great considering 12 months ago we didnt know if it would go ahead. 

Have any of you seen the skateboarding wow

Ok back to the reason I am here

Today starts a new challenge at Passion For Markers

We are sponsored by

Le Ann's world 101

For my card I have used a image from  All Dressed Up stamps Floral Wellies

this card was inspired by my team mate Lisa who sent me a card with a stencilled background

I used a diecut corner as a stencil and inked through it with some colour cloud

Coloured the image with promarkers and fussy cut with some foam pads on the back.

Matted the base layer with some pink pearl card and a thin yellow ribbon

few gems and a couple of flags in the top corner

Stamped a happy birthday direct to the base layer.

Well when I started this I was thinking this isnt working but as it went on am pleased with the end result. Do you do this with your cards.

Well hope you can come and play along with us this week. 

Pop along and checkout the teams cards and our sponsors new shop.

Bye for now off to cut the grass before the bin men arrive that way the clipping have gone to be recycled.

Summer Reads - Digi Doodles Studios inspiration

 Hello I have a lovely Summer card for you today.

Gosh i wish this was me and not just because she is young.

The image is from DIGI DOODLES STUDIOS and is Summer Reads

I thought I would use some bright colours for this one.

I coloured the image with promarkers
Sky done with distressed inks
Dp is Echo park Summer Lovin covered the whole card something I dont always do as tend to like a little white showing
The sentiment is a strip off one of the Dp pages which I placed foam dots under to raise

Well do you enjoy a good book on holiday I have to say that is really only time I tend to read a full book. Think at home I find too many other jobs to do.

Well have you joined in our Blog Challenge - Christmas in July
Still time if you are quick.
Enjoy your weekend
