Passion for promarkers challenge

This weeks challenge over at Passion for Promarkers is to use a sketch , there are no specific colours to use so any will do .I have used another of Mo's images because i just love 'em ! I have added extra sparkle to this one again and i think i have even managed to capture it in the photo for a change !

Skating - for a challenge or two

Another of these fabulous images from Mo's digital pencil .These are my current faves for colouring which i find so relaxing , reminding me of childhood when i always had a pack of felt tip pens in my stocking on christmas morning !
I have got all the new colours from promarkers to look forward to this year . Hubby bought them for me a while ago but i have nt been able to get round him yet and get him to let me have them early ,I must be losing my touch !
Any way i did this one for a challenge blog that i stumbled upon called a spoonful of sugar
whilst checking my dashboard this morning ,i found another challenge blog called
crafty creations which wants something in shades of blue so i am going to enter it there too

I love this one !

I absolutely love this picture , it just conjures up childhood memories of playing in the snow ,- not that i ever had a sled, but i'm sure it would have been great fun !. This one is nt an order or a challenge or anything special , it was just for fun .x

mo's digital pencil 1 st challenge

I wondered last month what had happened to the i love promarkers 3 rd challenge . I had saved the page in my favourites and i kept checking back to see when the new one had been posted ,but all i saw was the page showing last months winner , I remembered something about not being able to post on face book so assumed it was something to do with this . Yesterday i happened to see on my dashboard that the 4th challenge had been posted . I was mortified ! how had i missed the 3rd one ? Ha ! instead of saving the home page i had saved the post !! what a numpty !

So not much chance of winning that one - so i have made my card for the 4 th one early so that i dont forget. I have had trouble photographing it too . The embellishments were too thick for it to scan properly so there is a shadow cast over the pic .
I have also used the card in the very first challenge over at mo's digital pencil where you have to use a mo's image and the colour purple .

lily -boo too's 2 nd challenge

The first lily -boo challenge has come to an end and the winner is to be announced shortly ( when we have come to a final decision ) That was not an easy thing to do , the entries were fantastic .
Of course this means that the next challenge is underway , there is a sketch to follow and a freebie to use if you dont have a lily boo image yet . ( i say yet because you will have one soon if you are anything like me and want them all ! )
I used the fairy and the sketch , but you only need to use the sketch and any other lily boo image .
