Good morning dear friends. I cannot believe how grey and murky it was yesterday – I went to work in the gloomy conditions and when I came home and it looked exactly the same. I cannot wait for spring to come around again and we get the lighter nights – I know I’m wishing my life away lol!
Anyway onto nicer things – it’s time for a brand new challenge over at passion for promarkers challenge. This week the lovely Michele has set the theme and she has chosen “swirls and sparkles” which is such a lovely combination and so versatile for any occasion. I decided to make a Christmas card as I still don’t have enough yet! Here is my card:
I have used a super cute image from sugar nellie stamps called “snow buddies” and I coloured it with promarkers and flex markers. I used my gorgeous new echo park paper pad called ‘winter park’ and it so beautiful. There is something really “fresh and clean” about blue and white isn’t there and with the pop of red I think it’s a really fun colour scheme. There is an abundance of stickles on all their “fluffy” bits and sparkly gems too and the swirls are cut out with an x-cut punch.
Our sponsor this week is Letraset and one lucky winner will receive one of their brilliant Promarker Stamping Kits.
