Here is my entry for the Anyone for Anya Challenge which is 'Round'.
I have used my Nesties to cut an aperture in the card and stuck Anya on the inside of the card. I have used glossy accents on her hairband and coloured the image with ProMarkers.
Thanks for looking x
Here is my entry for Secret Crafters Challenge http://thesecretcraftersaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/2009/11/challenge-58.html
The challenge is 4 seasons so with all the horrible weather about I thought I would add a little sunshine with this card. I have used a Sugar Nellie image coloured with ProMarkers and paper from DCWV - The Pocket full of Posies stack.
Thanks for looking :0)
Here is the card I made for my parents Anniversary which is tomorrow. They are in Lanzarote for 2 weeks so I had a go at making a box for the card to go in. It's not perfect as I made it all by hand as I couldn't find my score board.
The image is a digi image from DigiStamp Boutique (Alex and Felicity) http//www.digistampboutique.co.uk/catalog/ and coloured with ProMarkers. I have used my one and only set of Nesties (Classic Scalloped Circles Large) which I love. Can't wait to get more Nesties but I have to win the lottery first. The papers are from DCWV - The Pocket full of Posies Stack and odds from my stash... Also flowers from my stash to decorate box lid. The large green one was originally pink but I used my ProMarkers to match the colours in my image...
Have a great weekend x

Hi all, it's a late night for me. Lewis is teething and keeps waking every half hour so I've decided to make a card :0)
My poor little man has pink cheeks and through his pain, bless him, he gave me my colour scheme for this card. His little pink face and blue for my little boy. The photo is not great as it's a bit dark in here...
I've followed the beautiful sketch from Heather at Whiff of Joy, many thanks.
This is supposed to be my entry for Challenge 21 at The Sugar Bowl - Tiets sketch
Unfortunately I don't think I made the deadline this time as I had left if until the last minute to post and had problems doing so :0( I'll learn my lesson next time!
Anyway, it is a lovely sketch and I love this image of Snowflake, she is so beautiful. The image has been coloured using Promarkers and decorated with gems. I have used papers from the Dovecraft and Papermania range. I did not have any backing card in the right colour for my image so I used my Maroon Promarker and white card to make my own. Also decorated with 3 snowflake buttons but in the rush to get the picture taken I have just seen that one has slid down the card. Lesson 2, make sure glue is dry before you move it, lol.
Whilst this card was too late for the challenge I really enjoyed making it. Now I'm back off to my poor little boy who has been teething for the last 2 weeks, bless him xxx
Thanks for looking and take care all, Tam x

Here is my entry for the second challenge at Crafty Catz. This week the challenge is butterflies!
I have used Promarkers to colour in this Gorjuss girl and mounted her onto white glitter and lilac circle nestabilities. The stripy glitter butterfly is from Tescos and paper, flowers and hearts are from my stash.
Thanks for looking :o)

Today I had a go at using orange and green. I completely went out of my comfort zone with this one as I usually end up using purples, pinks or blues.
I used my promarkers to colour in this gorjuss girl image and I'm now happy with the result. It took a while to get used to it but I think I'll try this colour scheme more now.
Thanks for looking...

Here is my first attempt at a Sarah Kay card. I have really enjoyed making this card and I'm so happy with the end result (which is something I don't say often). It's such a beautiful image!
I used my new Promarkers to colour it in and they are brilliant but I do need to practice using them more.
