Passion for Promarkers - yummy Gingham or Checks

Hello everyone - can I firstly say I am so sorry for not visiting many blogs this last week or so!  I still have the dizziness although mostly first thing and in the evening but I've also had a dreadful headache for the last couple of days.  I've been making sure that I keep up with all my DT committments but just haven't felt I could do much more on my PC. Dr Jane has diagnosed me with possibly having Labrynthitis which sounds about right but I just so wish I felt more tickety boo!!
I've struggled to make myself go to my little craft room to make cards, but you know, once there, the pleasure takes over and I've actually felt distracted from the headache and nausea.
Anyhoo, our challenge at PFP this week is Gingham or Checks.  Really enjoyed making my card as I don't use my lovely ginghams enough!
Plus colouring this little Mo Manning cutie was no chore - I love his/her? sweet little expression - this is one of the set of three baby fairies that you can find here.
Not entirely happy with the hair colouring, but thought I'd show you the close up anyway!! 
A lot happier with my face colouring though - I just wish I was one of those colourists who are consistently amazing - or even just occasionally would do me!!
My gingham papers are Papermania and the others are Garden Party by DCWV.  The flower branch is a Memory Box die and stamp combo, Dogwood Rose.   I coloured the stamp directly with my PMs and then coloured in the centres after stamping out the image. There's also a  Martha Stewart floral punch,  Stampin Up edger and mini flowers punches and the music is a LOTV stamp as is the sentiment. 
This week's fabulous sponsor is the Digi Stamp Boutique and you could win 6 digi images of your choosing!! 
Do check out the rest of the DT makes here - they're fabulous!!

This little image of Mo's is adorable and she IS coloured beautifully - as ALL your images are! Love the colour combo and added prettiness too.
Now, matey, I'm your friend and I'm older than you and I'm telling you - you MUST go to the doc for a proper diagnosis and some meds... okay?!
