Passion for promarkers #105–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I had a lovely day out with my mother yesterday and after a quick stop at the hospital it was into Cardiff for a full day of shopping.  We had a great time chatting and laughing and it was fantastic to spend the entire day with my mum, which I haven’t done for such a long time.  Even the weather was behaving until about 10 minutes before we were due to leave, which was brilliant. 

Enough of my rambles and onto the real reason you are here!  Today we have a brand new challenge over at passion for promarkers challenge and the lovely Andie has set the theme and she has chosen “park life”.  We want to see all your images featuring things you can do in the park i.e. play on the swings, ride your bike etc.  Here is my card:

PFP challenge 105 - parklife

PFP challenge 105 - parklife (close up)

I used a super cool image from the greeting farm called ‘skater Ian’ and the papers are my mind’s eye from the ‘true blue’ paper pad. 

Our sponsor this week is Letraset and they are offering a “special prize” this week.The prize will be 20 x new ultra-fine nib attachments for Promarkers. These have literally just been announced and you can read all about them here.  They clip straight over the top of the bullet nib, and are an ‘extra upgrade’.  Wow who wouldn’t want to be one of the first to try out this new and interesting new product.  Not even the design team have tried these yet lol!  They will be so useful for smaller images and fine detailed work.
