Passion for promarkers #115–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  Well the bank holiday certainly flew by but at least we have a shorter working week now *yay*.  I cannot believe that the next holiday will be Christmas (excuse my swearing lol!).  I’m not even that organised for the boys to go back to school yet – I’ve only bought them pens so far so I’d better get my act together this week.  I’m lucky as they don’t go back until Wednesday and Thursday next week, so I have a bit of extra time yet. 

I’m here this morning with my DT card for this week’s passion for promarkers challenge and I have to say we have a very special challenge for you this week.  We are being sponsored by Letraset and as their Flex Markers are due to be released very soon they are offering one lucky winner 2 x 6 pen sets of flex markers of their choice.  Therefore to coincide with this we decided our challenge this week would be ‘flexible’ i.e. “anything goes”.  Don’t forget to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your promarkers, aqua markers, tria markers or even flex markers if you are lucky enough to have them.  Here is my card:

PFP challenge 115 - flexible

I have used a super cute image from DigiStamp Boutique called ‘off to school Eva’ which is just perfect for this time of year (there is also a ‘boy’ version called ‘off to school Ben’ which is equally as adorable).  I thought the colour scheme was really fresh and I really love gingham, so the perfect combination I think.  The fun letters were found whilst hunting around in my stash, although I was looking for ABC letters, but I’m happy with these as I think look cute.

As I mentioned Letraset are our sponsor this week and the prize is 2 x 6 pen sets of Flex Markers for one lucky winner.
