Passion For Markers Challenge #654 - Things with Wings

 Hi Crafters,

It's been a busy time for me and I'm sorry I haven't visited your blogs recently but hopefully you will understand. I really miss using Bloglovin too, it was my go-to for seeing your blog posts all in one place and although I switched over to Feedly when Bloglovin started having some issues, I don't seem to get on as well with that site. Often the posts are delayed and show up in the feed the next day. I have tried using my reading list on Blogger but not all of your blogs are there. If any of you have any better suggestions please let me know in the comments.

I digress, I'm actually here to share my latest DT inspiration for the new challenge at Passion For Markers which starts today. We have a fab prize from Colour of Love of 3 digi images so why not come and join us with our THINGS WITH WINGS challenge this week?

I am using one of my favourite digi stamps from Bugaboo Stamps ( I still can't get over the fact that they are no longer trading as I loved their quirky images) I have loads of them so you will be seeing many more in upcoming posts. :o)

Coloured with Promarkers this fun 'Penguin Joy' image really makes me smile. I've used some silver glitter card to cut out the star frame and the background paper is a digital download from Crafters Companion.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Make My Monday - #181 Christmas in August
Colour Crazy Challenge - #32 ATG Colouring Challenge
Creative Inspirations - August ATG
Crafty Calendar - August ATG

Take a look at the other ladies creations here, they are fabulous - very inspirational and perfect to get your creative juices going so that you can join in with us.
Looking forward to seeing what you make.

Bye for now,

This Christmas card is fabulous. Love the little joy penguin. The die cut frame was so perfect with the image. I hope there is a chance that Bloglovin will get things lined out. I s there hope of that?

What a fun card Lorraine. I am hopeless with tech so have no suggestions, I'm afraid. I hope you manage to sort it out xx

Pamela said...

such a cute and adorable card using Penguin as the O for Joy - you did a wonderful job at coloring as well. Thank you for joining us at MMM for the Christmas in August challenge

HI Lorraine,
Love your wonderful card and that image is perfectly coloured also.
What a great die cut frame too.
Love the paper used or did you make that yourself.
I always know when someone has posted as it shows up on my blog list where I keep all the ones I like to visit.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Great Christmas card, love those colours. I know, keeping up with everything in blogland is a challenge. I haven’t managed to keep on top of everything either but I now bookmark blogs that I follow regularly then I just flick through the bookmarks periodically xx

A super card Lorraine, a great image, it certainly is a shame that Bugaboo are no longer trading.
By they way, Bloglovin is working again - at the moment!

That is one adorable image and great coloring. I wish I had suggestions on how to see everyone that visits my blog so I could see more and get more followers but I am only familiar with seeing the comments and visiting blogs of those that comment. It sure would be nice to have a better way to see other blogs.

Very cute and fun Christmas card Lorraine, and fabulous marker colouring.

Fabulous card Lorraine, I love the cute image. It’s such a shame that Bugaboo digi stamps are no longer available. Thank you for joining in the Crafty Calendar Challenge this month. Good luck!
