Three of a Kind, with PASSION FOR MARKERS

Hello there my lovely blog chums........hope you've been having a good week. I am still away on my "late-cation", if you will, in Dorset. Its been a very enjoyable break so far. 

I just wanted to share with you, that we have a fun, new challenge at 

Passion for Markers

Kitty, set the theme as 
3 of a kind.

Our lovely sponsors are 
Who also,  very kindly provided some amazing images for the team to work with.  

I  am  using JMC Designs image ‘Whinnie’ from the ‘Happy Campers’ collection). JMC images always look so bright and colourful, and my mother is keen on bright colours,  so I thought this would be perfect for her birthday card. I am using Promarkers to colour - lime zest, cocktail pink and pastel yellow  (3 of a kind). The papers are from Doodlebug. Sentiment is my own creation. I was lucky enough,  recently, to be nominated by my good friend Sarah, to receive a gorgeous bundle of ribbon - from  Crafty Ribbons. One of the Ribbons in this bundle was made to be on this card! I also added enamel dots, from YNS  - another three of a kind.

I do hope that you will hop on over and join us

Anything Cute......with The Cutie Pies

 Hello there, my lovely bog chums.....hope your week has started well. As I type this we are currently enjoying a few days away from is hubby's birthday this week  and we decided to squeeze in bit of a last jolly of the year to celebrate.  He loves the Dorset coast, and choose to come to Weymouth. We are staying near a nature reserve, close to Chesil beach, and we enjoyed a lovely walk around there this some  point we will take the dogs for a run on Weymouth beach.....Will I brave enough to take the Skechers off and feel the sand beneath my feet.

Anyway, its time for a new challenge with THE CUTIE PIES 

Our theme is 

obviously, we love to see your cards....but....we would love to see any other makes too, as long as they are cute! 

Our lovely sponsors are

We are huge fans of Polkadoodles, and there are plenty of opportunities to visit them,



I have made a wall hanging,  which I think will grace my porch, in a few weeks time. It was a wooden tag, which I repainted using a Farrow and Ball tester pot. I put together a digital collage using a Nitwit download paper, together with elements from a Nitwit digiscrapping kit, to which I added an adorable Polkadoodles coloured digi, called  Lucky Present - you can find it here

You can play along with us here

 Hello there my lovely blog chums......hope you've had a lovely weekend. 

Something of an exciting one here, as we went to pick up my new car on Saturday morning......I had a little red Seat Mii, which had started to develop a few issues so hubby had decided that we'd trade her and now I have a Dacia Sandero...this was all very nice, but it also gave us the opportunity to stop off for lunch at one of my favourite garden centres - at the moment they have  wonderful Christmas displays (I have my eye on a few of the Christmas Village ornaments) so I am hoping to get over there in a  week or so and take Mum for a run out too.

Anyway, on the subject of lovely Christmas is time for a new challenge at 

Christmas with the Cuties 

and our theme is 


We have two fabulous sponsors 


So that's two chances to win an amazing prize!

We love to see pretty pinks on Christmas cards, so we do hope that you will hop on over and play along.

For my own DT card I am using a favourite of mine, this swet carolling mousie from LOTV. I am using Promarkers to colour, and I fussy cut this digi and attached to a tag die cut, which I had embossed with Swiss Dots folder from Cuttlebug. I also used a little off cut at the top of a Doodlebug paper. The sentiment is a stamp, for a change, from a Penny Black set. The dp is a magazine freebie download, which I edited in serif page plus to change the colour tone, to match. I added a panel in the middle to cover a little ink smudge, which I think I got away with!!!! Finally added enamel dots from YNS  to complete.

I Would also like to enter these challenges please:

Christmas Cards All Year Round something Beginning with S or T (snowflakes and stocking on the Pink paper, also Singing)
 Jingle Belles not a creature was stirring 
Daring Cardmakers wear it pink

Thank you so much for your visit today......I will be back tomorrow with another DT card

 Hello there my lovely blog chums....hope this finds you keeping well. I have a little cough/cold going on which seems to be doing the rounds at the moment. Hopefully it will shift soon and until then I will continue plastering myself with Vicks!!!

Anyway,  its new challenge day at PASSION FOR MARKERS 

and Elaine has set the theme of 

"Make It Cute"

Our lovely sponsors are 
Who, also very kindly provided some adorable images for the team to work with. I am a massive fan and I was delighted to use Little Gardener - she is so sweet and I love the wee neckerchief on the dog. I am using Promarkers for my colouring. The floral paper, was floating around in my remnants box, so I'm unsure of its brand. The curly....or I would call it, is a Paper smooches die cut. Its one of those that cuts an outline, but I find running it through the big shot just the once, enables me to keep the inside in place too, which is another nice way to use this die. Again, I have used my new corner dies  - I can see these becoming a regular addition to my cards! Oooh, I also stamped a little sentiment onto the digi image, to complete.

I would like to enter these challenges please:
All Dressed Up #121 A.T.G, using an All Dressed Up image 
Crafty Catz #567 A.T.G  with optional theme: Girly

Have a great day, whatever you're up to and I will catch you soon x

Down on the Farm with The Cuties

 Hello there, my lovely bog chums....I hope you had a lovely weekend. It was a fairly - and much needed quiet one here!

So its time for a new challenge, today, with The Cutie Pies, and our theme is


We would like to see your cutest, farm yard characters featuring on your cards - animals, maybe the farmer, or how about a scarecrow - we will leave it to your imagination, but we cant wait to see your cards.

For my own  DT card I couldn't resist printing off one of my fave oldies from, Digistamp Boutique. I am using Promarkers to colour. This paper combo comes from "My Favourite Things" and I thought the plaid design, particularly was very apt for the theme. I decided to add a little detail with a label die cut in half and a tiny flower added. I had also recently found a pack of corner dies, reduced to a £1, obviously I couldn't leave it there at that price and I certainly couldn't wait to try it out.

I would like to enter these challenges, please:

Cute Card Thursday #693 October atg

Crafty Animals #55 atg

Crofters Castle #46 October atg

Thank you so much for your visit today.....I will be back in the next couple of days with another DT card.
