Passion for promarkers #121–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I trust you all had a good Monday – mine started off badly – my alarm didn’t go off and me and the boys were all late for work and school.  Don’t you just hate rushing around, especially when it’s just to get to work lol!  However my colleagues in work are the best and they covered for me until I got there. 

I’m here this morning to share my card for this week’s passion for promarkers challenge.  This week the lovely Andie has set the theme and she has chosen “Christmas critters”, so we basically want to see all your animals enjoying Christmas!  As our sponsor this week is DigiStamp Boutique I thought I would use one of Sally-Ann’s images and was going to use one of the new “offers of the month” images for October, however my printer decided to run out of ink over the weekend and I hadn’t had a chance to print out my image.  Therefore I have used an older image, but still as equally as cute.  Here is my card:

PFP challenge 121 - christmas critters

The image is from the “cute nativity collection” and I coloured it with promarkers and flex markers.  The paper is from the dovecraft ‘let it snow’ paper pad and kraft card is from elzybells (what am I going to do when it runs out lol!). 

As I mentioned our sponsor this week is DigiStamp Boutique and Sally-Ann is offering one lucky winner 6 digi images of their choice.
