Passion for promarkers #80

Good morning everyone.  This week over at passion for promarkers challenge we have a very special Mega Christmas challenge which will last until 4th January 2011.  The design team have worked so hard over the year that we’ve decided to give them a little break during this busy time.  For our last challenge of 2010 we are making it easy on you – the theme is “anything goes”, so as long as you use your promarkers or aqua markers you will be in with a chance of winning our amazing prizes.  Don’t forget you can enter as many times as you like. 

We’ve asked team 1 and team 2 to make samples for this challenge, but we are showing them separately.  Team 1 are showing their creations this week and team 2 will be showing their creations in two week’s time.  Now technically myself and Michele are in both teams, so Michele is sharing her card this week and I will be showing my card the next time. 

However to make up for such a long break we have some amazing prizes once again.  Here is what is up for grabs:

Letraset are generously offering a set of 40 promarkers in specific craft colours stored in two promarker wallets – fab eh!


Simon Says Stamp are generously offering 3 x $10.00 gift certificates to their online store!


Just Tracy’s are generously offering a variety of prizes including 3 promarkers, a memento ink pad, 10 sheets of suitable smooth white paper and a stamp from their own range


Whiff of Joy Stamps are generously offering 1 stamp of winner’s choice


Some Odd Girls are offering 3 digi images of the winner’s choice

if that wasn’t enough - they are also offering a 25% discount to everyone on any order placed on their site during the challenge period using code PRO25 (excluding sale items)!!


I hope you will be able to find the time to enter our challenge for a chance to win these fantastic prizes.  Don’t forget to check back later to find out the lucky winners of the blog hop and special challenge. 

Now I couldn’t do a post today without sharing a card could I and actually as our theme is “anything goes” surprisingly my card fits lol!!  It’s another Christmas card (as I’m so far behind in making them) and it’s using a gorgeous digi image from Whimsy Stamps called ‘classic Santa’.  Here is my card:
