Mummu in Summer- and a Happy Birthday to Me!!

Hi peeps!

It's my birthday today and I've decided that this is going to be me from now on - getting to look like this more and more!  Following on from my Mummu image making bread, this is Mummu in Summer- beauty isn't she!  She's here over on Mo's Digital Pencil.  The weather has been so fantastic here that we were able to go swimming in one of our beautiful lakes up here the other day and I dipped more than my toes I can tell you!

Appropriately, the papers are from Maja Designs and are called Enjoying the Day and the frame and lavender sprigs are a die set from Marianne Designs - catalogue no: LR0647 - New out in March of this year.

Going to enjoy the weather today and have a BBQ , and I'll be serving Pimms!!

Have a fab day!

Summer theme at Passion for Promarkers

A nice  and easy theme of Summer for you today over on the Passion for Promarkers challenge blog.  And as we're being sponsored by Lee Holland images, I've used this little fella for my card.  It was also for my great-nephew's first birthday a few weeks ago.
Nothing says Summer quite like sunflowers don't you think?  I've yet to see mine seeds sprout though!!  

Anyhow, there's a few Marianne goodies used including the fab new music flourish.  The Banner letters are not such a new die - I just wish I  hadn't stuck them down quite so wonky!!

Lee Holland Designs who are offering one lucky winner a prize of 2 digi images from his online store - and this one is such a cutie!

That's all for now folks.

Enjoy the sunshine.

Morning everyone! Today's post is to showcase the new Long  Tag set from Marianne Designs this month along with my fellow DT members here

I made a set of bookmarks using various sets of the Silhouette stamps from Marianne Designs and then made a book card to send as a  small gift for someone's birthday.

Passion for Promarkers Anniversary Challenge

Hey folks - it's a very special day for the Passion for Promarkers challenge blog - they've been running for 11 years and I think I've been on the team nearly that long!  It was my very first DT position so it has a very special place in my heart!

The challenge is to use Spots and/or Stripes on your make - just remember to use your Promarkers or other Letraset/Windsor and Newton product that is part of this range.

I decided to go with this fab image from Mo's Digital Pencil - Mummu's Nissu for my card - it seems so topical at the moment with everyone, including me, making our own bread as we have more time on our hands!  Luckily for me, my daughter has been able to get hold of Strong Flour and Yeast for her Pantry Staples business here in the UK, so I'm able ot get hold of supplies which are hard to find on the supermarket shelves!

I sort of feel that my card is a bit busy but sort of kind of like it too!    Full list of products used below.

Papers - October Afternoon - Modern Homemaker
Window Die - Marianne Designs - LR0583
Utensil Dies - Marianne Designs - CR1247
Sentiment Tags/Dies - Marianne Designs - CS1029

Good Luck!

I absolutely love the playing card themed products out from Marianne this month - there's a set of four card stamps in each of the different suits.  As I wanted to make a good luck card though, I used the new confetti type die which gives you all the different suits and colours so I stamped each one in red then used the miniature die shapes to change the suit!  You could also do this if you wanted a Four of a Kind hand - stamp out two jacks in red and two in blue then use the die cuts to change the suit!     Great for males cards too! Anyway, full list of Marianne Goodies below!!

PFP In The Pink new Challenge

Hi there - it's Tuesday and the sun is out - hope you are able to enjoy a little of it wherever you are.  It's new challenge day at PFP HQ with a great In the Pink theme!  I've used one of our sponsor's quirky stamps - Clove Close and Gardens from JMC Designs!  Lots of pink promarker combos going on here!!

The papers are an old set from Bo Bunny, the stamped sentiment is from PTI and then I did a doodly Tickled Pink etc as it matches the image.

A new sketch challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil Too.

Morning people - hope everyone is well. We have a new challenge starting today over on the Digital Pencil Too Challenge blog - for Mo's Digital Pencil images of course.  The sketch is below - designed by our lovely DT boss that was - Lou Daubney.  Lou has decided to step down from her DT work but we still get to use her gorgeous sketch.  

I've used Honey for my card- love this honey pie!!

The papers are Memory Boz and there's a couple of Marianne dies too - deets below.  I've used the chicken wire die-cut as honeycomb - I think it works!
