A card and an award :-))))

Not made anything for a few days ......i was on a crafting roll, but now it's stopped lol
But on Friday i made the above card for a challenge on a forum i go on, which was to have mice on your card.
So i used a cute PB image and my new nesties, promarkers as always to colour and the rest from my stash.

Also i would love like to thank Mandy for the award she has given me, now for the hard bit, i have to nominate 7 people.........i can not pick so will ask anyone who visits my blog to pick up this award from me (hugs) :p

Hugs and kisses

Passion for Promarkers

(click to enlarge)

Passion for promarkers challenge this week was to use Pumpkin and Cinnamon.
Well I have to admit I struggled with this card and I usually have no trouble with men's cards!
It looked bare and empty until i dug out my flourish stamp and put a few twirls on lol
but i will use these colours together again, I even coloured one of the buttons with the Pumpkin pen :-)))
So i have used
Whiff of Joy stamp
papers, buttons and brads from stash.
sentiment from the range
Square nesties
Florish stamps
Promarkers in colours....
Ivory and Blush for skin
Apricot for hair and shirt
Pumpkin for top
Cinnamon for trousers
and spice and apricot for the diamonds on the top.

Thanks for looking xxx
