Lili of The Valley Baby with Bunny

I made this for a lockdown baby who was born a couple of weeks ago to my dear friend, Granny Sally!!   And I hear mum and baby are doing well- it must be so difficult during these strange times.  
The image is Lili of theValley and the Crib is a Marianne Die.  Love these Bella and Boo papers too.

Berry Fairy Aliz

Happy weekend people!!  I forgot it was Saturday today - the days just seem to roll into each other at the minute.  It's hard to believe it's only April too - the weather has been like high summer so we've been spending lots of time in the garden, although no strawberries yet of course!

This little sweetie is Berry Fairy Aliz from Mo's Digital Pencil - good enough to eat!! (And you can get the pre-coloured image here!).

The papers are from Nitwit and the gorgeous strawberry dies are from Marianne Designs, as is the lovely corner die - deets below.

Marianne Products Used

Strawberry Dies - LR0510

The little Sentiment is from a PTI set.

Right, I need to get dressed and get cracking in the garden while the sun is still shining!!

Enjoy your day everyone.

Add A Sentiment PFP Challenge

Morning folks - another sunny day here in the Lakes - long may it last.
As it's a Tuesday, it's time for our new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and it's my turn to host the challenge.  I've chosen, hopefully, a nice easy theme of Add A Sentiment as most of us tend to add some sort of sentiment to our makes, right?  Just remember to use your Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Trias or Aquamarkers - lots of choice!!
I needed to make a Get Well Card for a dear friend suffering from that Virus, so this is it - thankfully, she is on the road to recovery at the minute.

The image is from Stamping Bella and the papers are Basic Grey.

The die cut snowdrops are from Marianne as are the looped border and the sentiments, details below

Snow Drop Die set - CR1490
Looped Border Die - CR1250
Sentiment stamps  from Mini Labels and Dies set -CS1029 -  so versatile!! 

We're being sponsored by the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps who make some great images with fab and funny matching sentiments. They're offering the lucky winner a $12 voucher to spend in their digi store!!

My teamies have made some wonderful cards for the challenge this week, go check them out here at PFP HQ and leave them so love - I intend to when I have made my foray into town for our weekly shop!

Have a great week everyone and I look forward to seeing your makes!
Hugs, Juliexx

Beautiful Weather

A very good morning blogland.  Despite all the trials and tribulations of 2020, the weather here in the Lake District has been wonderful and looks set to continue for  at least the next couple of weeks.  So my sentiment here is so appropriate.

My card uses Country Boy from Mo's  Digital Pencil - what a sweetie - and I love the expression on the chicken's face! I chose my colour scheme from these fabulous Crate Paper papers - Farmbouse and there are a few Marianne Products too - list  below!  I love the American Barn die set and this fabulous sentiment also from Marianne Designs.
Marianne Products Used 

American Barn/fence Die set - COL1427

Marleens's Hello Spring and Easter set - CS1044 NEW (love that this set has general sentiments and not just Easter ones).

I'm going to be out in the garden again today - it's a never ending work-in- progress!

Enjoy your day,

Morning and a Happy Easter to you all.  No chocolate here today but apples!!  This is Apple from Mo's Digital Pencil - a little sweetie she is too.

Happy Easter from the PFP Challenge Blog

Hi folks 

It's new challenge day over at PFP HQ with a fab theme, Easter, of course, chosen by our lovely Sue.  It's going to be a very different kind of Easter this year but we can all have a virtual Easter with lots of lovely cards and chocolate?
For my card, I've used this gorgeous stamp from Stamping Bella- fell in love with it at the Farnborough show back in February - seems like another life now. 
The papers are from Fancy Pants, I think, and I've just let the image and the papers do the talking - no dies on this card today.
I also made a list of my Promarker choices for the main yellow and blue colours as below:

Yellows - Sleigh Bells, Gold, Mustard, Daffodil Bloom
Blues - Aegean, Cyan, Duck Egg, Cool Aqua, 

Don't forget to check out the rest of Team One's  super makes here, and then come and play along.  

Our generous sponsor this week is Cowling & Wilcox and they are offering one lucky winner a 3 pack of Neon Markers and I have added a Winsor & Newton superior bleedproof marker paper pad to the prize. 

Hugs, Juliexx

Spring themed Challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenges

Can you believe it's the beginning of April already today - what a strange year it has been so far but we must do all what we must to keep well and all those around us safe and healthy.  Our online challenges and blogs are all so important to stay connected and we have a new challenge starting today over at Mo's DP2 Challenges with a fab easy theme of Spring.

My card uses an oldie image from Mo - Easter Carly - and she is due to be retired but is still in the shop at the minute so grab her while you can!!

Of course I used a few Marianne products too - including this stitched oval from a shaped card set, and also the frame which I made out of three small oval frames layered behind the image- great when you don't have the exact die to fit!  Also the sentiment is from a gorgeous new set from Marianne this year!  Details below.

Marianne Products Used

Oval  lace frame - CR1500 (new in February 20)
Oval Stitched Frame- LR0607
Hello Easter/Spring Sentiment set - CS1044

Do come and join in our challenge if you can - just use a Mo image.  And don't forget to pop on over here to see some more inspiration from the rest of the team.

Hugs, Juliexx
