Spots, Stripes and Anniversaries, with PASSION FOR MARKERS

 Hello there my lovely blog chums.....hope that this week has started well for you. Tuesdays are usually my day off, but my shifts have been changed a little and I've had to go in did feel a bit odd but I guess I'll get used to it and it does give Fridays off instead,  so that's the nice bit!!!

Anyway, enough rambling...its time for a new challenge at 


and it's a very special one as we are celebrating our 13th Anniversary

Our theme is 


We have oodles of fabulous sponsors, so why not click the link and pay us a visit. We also have some amazing cards from all of the design team to share with you. 

For my own DT card I am using "Wallpaper Paste" from LOTV, he was an absolute treat to colour and I can't wait to print this out again. I used an Lotv tag and added a Cameron to it,and an eyelet. The Cameron is my son, who I can't believe will be 22 in September!!!. I added a dotty button and twine to embellish. The stripey paper is my own creation......I enjoy playing around with shapes and stuff on Serif, and I basically drew the shape, coloured it, then replicated to create a pattern.....if I get chance at the weekend I will put together a tutorial, it's fun to do and I was delighted with the result.I decided to add a  little curl up to the bottom corner.....I'm sure I'm not the only one with a little bit of wallpaper doing the same thing!!!!

I would also like to enter these challenges please:
