Passion For Promarkers Challenge #555 - Flower Power

 Hi Crafters,

Phew! Hasn't it been hot lately.

I'm really not one for the heat.

Armed with a large electric fan in the doorway of my craft room I've managed to get this pretty daisy card made for the new challenge at Passion For Promarkers where our theme this week is...


Images & Sentiment - Polkadoodles Stamp Set PDSMES0011
Coloured with Pro/Brushmarkers

I don't often make clean and simple cards like this but the beautiful stamps inspired me to create my own background with them. I decided to stamp three more of the large daisies, colour them and cut them out to layer on top of their counterpart in the background design.

Christmas Card Club Challenge #16 - Nativity

Hi Crafters,

I'm a day late for the challenge at our friendly Christmas Card Club but I'm sure the ladies will forgive me.
I have only managed one card this time too and that has been made during the day yesterday - where my time goes I do not know.

Our theme this time is...

 After seeing one of the other ladies makes yesterday I remembered that I had the same die and thought I could use it too. I have opted for a shaker card design, I do so love shaker cards.

Sizzix die 663127 - Wise Men (+star)
Unbranded Frame Die
Background paper - Clarity Stamps Shenandoah Paper Pad
Die cut Stars are the waste from another Sizzix Die
Sentiment - Spellbinders Breath of Heaven Stamp Set

Can you see my reflection in the acetate? I've only just noticed, lol.

Challenges I'd like to enter:

Thanks for popping by,
