Love this little girl from Lili of the Valley, although I'm a bit worried that her feet will get cold! She's framed in an oldie but a goldie Marianne Frame along with some holly leaf and poinsettia dies- details below. The papers are a mix of some old Basic Grey papers and the berries are from a recycled Christmas card!

Sparkle and Shine at Passion for Promarkers

I love our theme today at Passion for Promarkers - Sparkle and Shine, chosen by our lovely Nic.  Perfect for this time of year.  I've used this gorgeous image from Marianne Designs - I love silvered glass baubles at Christmas and so tried to colour the image up to look like them.  I've also added some Wink of Stellar to each bauble for some extra sparkle!  The blue glitter paper is also by Marianne and is such a soft pretty blue/lilac - full deets of Marianne goodies used below.

Gnomes in Red Hats

Another gnome image - this time from Sheepski Designs - I've fallen in love with it and just makes me smile!  
I made a couple of cards in this red colourway and I've also done a couple of others which I'll blog another time.

The papers are My Mind's Eye and the sentiment was a freebie from Making Cards Magazine last year I think! And colouring was with my Promarkers.

The next one is very similar but I've just used a border using a new Marianne Die - LR0635!

Happy Weekend everyone.

Christmas is Coming!!

It's Tuesday and that can only mean one thing - I have to finish painting our new kitchen!!  But first, it's time to tell you about our new challenge at  Passion for Promarkers with a nice, easy theme for  this time of year - Christmas is Coming!

I've used a merge of two Mo's Digital Pencil images  - Lula Fairy Doll here and Lula Christmas Elf clothing here - and the great thing is that the Christmas Elf clothing is a free bonus in the store!!  Very easy to merge too as I don't do anything to technical, just use an ancient version of Photoshop.

The papers are mostly Lili of the Valley NitWit Papers, Twas The Night and the snowflake papers are a cheap set I bought a few years ago from the Pound Shop!  The presents are an All Occasions die set and the sentiment is from a little set of various dies that I picked up in a local charity shop last week for 50p!!!  Of course there has two be a Marianne product or two - it's the law!!

Marianne Products Used

Wonky Squares  Dies - CR1375
Tree Dies - LR0556

This week we're being sponsored by Cowling & Wilcox who are offering one lucky winner a 6 pack of Promarkers (skin tones set 1). 

Check out the gorgeous makes of my teamies here then come along and play - just remember to use your Promarkers, Flexmarkers etc!!

Off to put on my painting clothes now!

Blood Moon Lavinia

A break from Christmas cards today - this is a Lavinia stamp card I made back in the summer  and was inspired by some of the stunning Blood Moon nights we saw at the time.  I made the background initially with distress oxides then used an Inkylicious Moon stamp and a cloud mask before stamping the gorgeous Lavinia silhouette images.
It's a Violet day today today, so off to  collect her shortly - love Violet days!
