A paper piecing challenge

Firstly i want to say a very big thank you to all of you who joined in with our birthday blog hop last week , I had loads of comments  on my card  and even got a few new followers to my blog too,so hello to all of you ,I  hope you will all be following me on my crafty  travels through blogland .
Of course i also had to pick  a lucky winner for my blog candy and my daughter Patsy kindly picked a number for me. She chose . . . . . . . . MARIA INKYMITS  so if you would like to email me your address i will get it in the post for you x

now our next challenge is sponsored by   die cut dreams  and there are some lovely die cuts on offer as your prize - we want to see your paper pieced creations and you must use promarkers too !

I made 2 cards for this  challenge , the first one  was for my hubby's birthday and i had the hump with him when i made it  so i was going to add the greeting "Happy birthday A*** HOLE " I decided against it in the end !

my second one is in much better taste - I stamped the background papers  and the card , using some stamps that had never been out of the packaging in the 3 years that i bought them!  (they were part of a set )-honest !

A couple i made using Scal2

I have nt made many cards lately with my cricut and I had forgotten how much fun they can be . I was asked to make a card with a  Springer Spaniel on and as i dont have one on any of my many carts I decided to use the trace function on my SCAL programme .I drew a picture of the spaniel from a photo of my friend's dog, scanned it into my computer and then opened up the scal programme . I clicked the trace image button and added my image file and voila ! here is "Bramble" the Springer spaniel

Then  I made this cute Kitty by using a clipart image ,that I altered slightly to look more like "Crumble" the ginger Persian

Anything Goes

This week's challenge at I ♥Promarkers  this week is Anything goes , It is sponsored again by Joanna Sheen and you could win £10  to spend in her online store.
I have used a new image from Lilly of the valley on my favourite card style - with an embossing folder and a computer generated image-of course it was coloured with my promarkers  .

I've had a headache since Sunday with facial numbness and a dead arm so  i'm off to bed again - nite folks x x
