I must be getting back into the swing of things,as I have had this card made since Monday!!! Busy,busy,busy again.

The house sale is coming along nicely,we still haven't found a house but have a few to look at,so will let you know.
My card is for the Double Dutch Challenge,following their sketch (great,as all measurements are provided!) & the image is the free Pollycraft download "Vase Full Of Love".I coloured the image with my Prismacolor Pencils & blended with Sansador,it felt odd using them after so long,much more work involved than with ProMarkers!!!

Cute Card Thursday #69~Xmas In July...

I didn't think I would be joining in this CCT challenge,as all my Xmas stuff are in the loft,but got the Docrafts Creativity mag yesterday & these Daisy stamps were free with it,so had a lil rummage & found some SU papers to go with it & managed to create a card!!!
Image is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa Ink,coloured with Promarkers,cardstock was a bargain find at my local craft shop,it's DCWV & has a white core,so just had to get the sandpaper on it!!!
I'm feeling much better now,I'm allowed to mingle with people again today,so will be good to get out.
The house sale is going through,we found out on Friday,so that's good,although we still can't find a house,just so typical!!!
I will be back later with my Pollycraft DT card.Thanx for looking :o)xxx

Colour Create Challenge #23~Blue & White (Option-Vintage)...

I'm in shock,I have just found out I have Swine Flu!
No wonder I have been feeling so poorly,it started on holiday & then when I got home it got worse.Paul looked the symptoms up on the NHS website & it all matched,an advisor rang me back & told me to contact my GP,who diagnosed Swine Flu.I should start to feel better after Monday,but it leaves you exhausted (tell me about it!).It could only happen to me,lol!!!

This card is for this weeks Colour Create challenge,using blue & white & the extra option of vintage,think I have managed both.
Image coloured with ProMarkers,paper is from QVC,rest from stash.

Thanx for looking,Oink,Oink!!! ;O)xxx

Passion For Promarkers #8~Gold & Ruby...

I'm back from my holiday & full of cold!!!
We had an amazing,realaxing 2 weeks of nothing but sunbathing,we didn't even bother with any trips,we just needed the break & it was great.
The day we went away we found out the house was sold,the buyer had her mortgage approved & the surveyor came out whilst we were away.
Got home on Saturday to be told the surveyor had down valued our house by £7,500 (due to other houses in the street selling cheap,as they belonged to old people & needed complete refurbs), buyer still wants it & is doing what she can to raise the £7,500 by Friday (the est agents gave her until Friday to see if she is serious & so we are not hanging on wondering),so as you can imagine,it is driving us mad! We don't know if we should be looking at houses,making offers or what?!
Anyhoo!!! on to some good news,you may have noticed my flashy new DT badge in my side bar>>>,yup! I made it onto the I (heart) Promarkers DT over on Facebook,yeyyyy!!!!
Get ready for the first challenge tomorrow,it's sooo exciting!!!
The card I have made today is for the Passion For Promarkers challenge.I had to use Poppy instead of Ruby,as I don't have that colour (yet!),other colours used are,Gold,Blush,Ivory,Satin,Cinammon & Pine.
Thankyou for looking :o)xxx
