Good morning dear friends. I hope you had a great weekend and have recovered from any self inflicted illnesses lol! We had a quiet New Year’s Eve and the whole family just chilled out, which was nice though. I haven’t crafted for so long and I have to say it is taken a toll on both my motivation and my mojo, but I’m sure I’ll soon get into the swing of things.
I’m back this morning as it’s time for a brand new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers challenge and it seems like forever since we had a new challenge as we had our month long Mega Christmas challenge last month. I have to say it was wonderful to see all your amazing creations and I really enjoyed visiting your blogs. I have the honour of setting the challenge this week and I have chosen “thank you” as our theme, as I’m sure like me you still have a few cards to make to thank relatives and friends for their Christmas gifts.
I made a very simple card for this week’s challenge although I have to say I’m really pleased with the finished result. Here is my card:
I used a super cute digi from Saturated Canary digis which is aptly called “thank you” and coloured her with promarkers and flex markers. I bought some Martha Stewart PATP punches out of my Christmas money and used just the border punch on this card. The sentiment is from a clear stamp set by personal impressions and I meant to add some pearls but forgot to lol, but as I say I’m really pleased with it anyway!
Our sponsor this week is Letraset and they are offering one lucky winner a prize of a Promarker Stamping kit.
The rest of the design team have created amazing samples as always, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
