I ♥ ProMarkers Challenge #12

Welcome to this weeks challenge, and what a fab sketch we had to work to. Sadly Vix has had to step down as a DT member and we wish her well, Kate out guest member this month had said she will join us full time...whoop whoop :0)

Here is what Karen has to say.......
Hi everyone and welcome to Challenge #12. Let me give you the winner of the $15 voucher from Simon Says Stamp and Top 3 from challenge #11.
The winner, chosen by Random.Org is
#14 - Julie
Julie please can you email me, Karen (email in sidebar) and I'll send you the instructions for claiming your prize, along with your winners badge to wear on your blog.
Now for the top 3 chosen, with difficulty, by the DT girls.
#17 - Kaylou
#18 - MaritO
#29 - Meeshka
If all 3 of you can email me, Karen, I'll send you your Top 3 badges to wear on your blogs.

Sadly Vix has decided to step down from our DT due to other commitments, and not having enough hours in the day to spread herself amonst all that she does. We're sorry to see her go, her work is lovely, but she is hoping to come along and take part in the challenges when time allows her to. Vix, we wish you lots of luck in all that you do.
So now we have a new DT member to introduce to you. Kate has been our GDT for this month so we decided to ask her if she would like to join us, and we're pleased that she said she would.
We're still without Julie, her mam is still poorly and in hospital, so naturally Julie is spending all of her time with her mam. We're all wishing your mam well, if you're looking in Julie and don't forget to make sure you look after yourself too. xxx

Ok for this weeks challenge we have a sketch for you to follow. Please remember to be entered into the prize draw you must use ProMarkers, we must see the sketch in your work, and also leave a link back to us, from your blog.
This week we're being sponsored by Susie at Die Cut Dreams

Thanks and well done for getting to the end of todays post lol

Commission card

I do very few commission cards these days, about 18 months ago i was getting quite stressed trying to keep up with orders/work etc, so when Robs mum was very poorly i stopped them as i had to help care for she is better i have still not started doing them again but a good friend at work is 50 this month and is also a crazy Donny fan so i agreed to make her card.
Not to fussy all i had to do was Donny and purple and knew she would be happy, as they are her 2 fav things lol This is a A4 card big enough for everyone to sign at work.
Thanks for listening to me drone on

PFP and cute card Thursday

The challenge this week on PFP was to make your own background using promarkers, so I made a tartan background on the large nestie behind the little girl....and speaking of the little girl this is the 1st time I have coloured a darker skin tone, think i need a bit more practice but she is so cute :0)And the challenge at Cute card Thursday was to use texture, i have used ribbon and a pin and a embossed background.
bye xxx

Easter Treats

Good morning and as promised I am back today to show you mu Easter treats, I found this fantastic idea on Split Coast Stampers site........even my hubby has been impressed with this one lol
You take the bottom of a can off using a safety opener(I used spaghetti hoops with a ring pull) clean it, being very careful as the edge is sharp I have a lovely cut to prove it hehe.
Fill with treats, I have used mini eggs, mini cream eggs and a little chick lol then run some glossy accents around the base of the can.
Stick to the rest of the tin and weight it down and leave to dry.
Then decorate, as I said hubby was impressed so I have had to make mother in law one as well as all our nieces, nephews godchildren----thing is she does just not get stuff like this but never mind.
