PFP #133 & Winter Wonderland DT card

Good evening dear friends.  I’m really sorry for the late post tonight but time has just gotten away from me (plus I was side-tracked on Facebook lol!).  I hope you’ve all had a great day and are now having a relaxing night.  I’m going to try and have an early night tonight as it’s becoming a regular thing for me to go to bed after 1.30am, even on a school night lol!  They are starting to catch up with me and I definitely need my beauty sleep haha!

Anyway enough waffling and onto my card.  We have a brand new challenge for you today over at passion for promarkers challenge which has been set by Kimberly and she has chosen “recycle something”.  Don’t forget to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Letraset products i.e. promarkers, flex markers, aqua markers or tria markers.  Here is my card:

PFP challenge 133 - recycle something

I used a super cute image from Lili of the Valley and coloured it with a mix of promarkers and flex markers.  The papers are echo park from the “be mine” paper pad and the pretty flowers were cut out with a magnolia doo-hickey die.  My recycled items are the ribbon which was wrapped around a pair of PJ’s that I had for Christmas and the black tag which was on one of hubby’s t-shirts. 

Our sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen and the lucky winner will receive a £10.00 voucher to spend in her online store.

I decided to combine my card with my DT card for Winter Wonderland challenge as unfortunately I didn’t make a card on time for last Friday’s challenge but I thought better late than never.  The theme over at WW is “easel card” and we haven’t started our Christmas themed challenges yet so it can be for any occasion.  The challenge still has one day left so why not knock up a quick easel card and try your luck – you have to be in it to win it!

I’m sorry it’s a doubled up post today but I didn’t want to let down my teamies at winter wonderland and wanted to make an easel card, as it seems like ages since I made one.  I’m really glad I did as it turned out quite pretty I think.

This is just beautiful! Our challenge has turned up some great recycled items and wrapping ribbon around PJ's certainly seems to have been a popular choice! I love the tshirt tag - how useful was that.
