Passion for promarkers #81 – DT card

Good morning everyone, sadly it’s back to reality for most people today isn’t it, although my boys don’t go back to school until tomorrow!  Why do schools insist on adding INSET days onto holidays that are already too long?  Luckily for me I have booked this week as annual leave so I don’t have to go to work woohoo!  I am going shopping with my mother today, which I haven’t done for so long, so I’m really looking forward to it. 

I’m sure you didn’t come here to hear me rambling on but instead wanted to see my card for this week’s passion for promarkers challenge (or at least I hope you do lol!).  This week design team 1 are back so that means that Caryn has set the challenge this week and her theme is “thank you cards”, but you must include a thank you sentiment of some sort on your cards.  Don’t forget to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your promarkers or aqua markers. 

Here is my thank you card:

PFP challenge 81 - thank you

PFP challenge 81 - thank you (close up)

I have used a much neglected stamp by Wild Rose Studio called ‘Milton with flowers’ but I think it is so useful for thank you and thinking of you cards.  Milton is such a cute little bear isn’t he.  I did buy Christmas Milton stamps but forgot to use them d’oh!! 

Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp and the lucky winner will receive a $10.00 voucher to spend in their online store. 


The rest of the design team have created gorgeous samples once again this week, so please pop over and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.  I personally would like to thank everyone that entered our Mega Christmas challenge during December, we have been stunned by the number of entries and are really grateful for your ongoing support of our challenge.  Don’t forget to check out the challenge blog later this evening to find out if you are one of the lucky winners of the fantastic prizes donated by our generous sponsors.

Kaboodle challenge – anything goes

Quixotic challenge – thank you

CRAFT challenge – thank you
