This week has flown over for me, it doesn't seem like 2 minutes since I was setting last weeks challenge....... lol
It's been great looking at your blogs and lovely to see some new people joining us too, everyone is welcome!

Morning this is another card i made at the weekend meet up and another MO digi design, she is so Talented. I went to see specialist about my knee yesterday and after him being very rude it turns out there is some arthritis in that knee and tearing the ligament in October in the same knee started all the pain up i have had.
Still a couple of injections in my knee they should take 2-3 weeks to kick in and fingers crossed i could be pain free for up to 6 months. Bring it on i say lol

Challenge #6 I ♥ ProMarkers

Hello everyone welcome to this weeks challenge.....let's see what Karen had to say :0)

Hi everyone we hope you're all ready for a new challenge. The cards for last weeks challenge were all so lovely, I'm so glad I don't have to personally choose a winner, it would be soooooooo difficult. I'm glad we've got Random.Org........ lol. So with that let me announce the winner of last weeks challenge. The winner is......................... #10, Loreal Blondi. If you can email me, Karen, your postal details please, (email in the sidebar) I'll get them emailed off to Joanna Sheen so they can forward your voucher. Enjoy your prize!

Ok, onto this weeks challenge which is sponsored by LETRASET and the prize is a pack of ProMarkers.
We've got the usual sketch for you, but this week we don't want to see any backing papers on your project. We'd like you to make your own backing paper. You could emboss it, distress it with inks, stamp on it, heat emboss, whatever you like really, just no backing papers please.
Here's this weeks sketch and please remember to be entered into the prize draw, you must follow the sketch and theme and also, provide a link back to us, from your blog.

Ok i stamped my background with a set of stampin up stamps, and to get the colour match i coloured the stamps with my markers to match the picture, the image was given to me at the weekend crafty meet up I arranged for some forum buddy's :0)
Some matting and layering and some ribbon and ta da lol
Thanks to all that visit me, please leave a comment just so i know i am not alone in blog land lol
