Rainy day craft sesh

Hello my lovely blog's been ages since I posted more than one card in a week, but here I am again!

Despite my shoulder still feeling a bit ropey, I was going to cut my grass this afternoon.....however, a very heavy downpour put pay to that...and actually feeling quite relieved, I made myself and cuppa and made a DT card instead. 

I am out of ink in my printer at the moment, so had a flick through my box of odds and ends and found this.....can't remember where this image came from, but thought it would make a handy addition to my card stash...
Image coloured with ProMarkers, gingham paper from scraps box, have used Mama Elephant star border die, X cut star dies, sentiment features Baby Lexi font.

Anyway, I am actually here to tell you about the current

Making it Pink.....

Hello my lovely blog chums!

I don't really have a favourite colour, but there are certain colours that I love to craft of these is Pink, and when I noticed that this week's Passion for ProMarkers challenge theme is "Make it Pink"......well, I could hardly resist!. I think Antique Pink is a gorgeous shade to work with.
I am using the completely yummy James with Umbrella, coloured with ProMarkers, of course, this pretty paper is from a pad from The Range, dies used are a fancy circle from Spellbinders, flourish for from The Works, and a label die from a Nellie Snellen set. Sentiment is my own creation, I added a bow and pearls to finish.

I would like to enter these challenges:
Passion for ProMarkers make it pink
colour crazy challenge a.g with hand coloured image
as you like it challenge favourite stamp brand - for me it has to be Lili of the Valley, one of my very first crafty purchases were  sheets of pre-coloured images (fairies and Christmas front doors)....this was about 12 years ago, and I have been a huge fan since and whilst I have numerous favourites in the DigiStamp world, LOTV are my favourite rubber stamps, the characters are always completely adorable, and on a practical note, the quality of the rubber stamp and the crispness of the stamping has always been first class too

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.....I will be back with a Cutie Pie card on Monday
