Emboss it !

This week's challenge at I ♥ Promarkers is to use some kind of embossing on your project.The challenge is sponsored by  Secret crafter .
Now thankfully for me I had got ahead of myself and made this one a couple of weeks ago as I have been ill all week and not been able to lift my head from my pillow let alone make a card !
I made this with a cuttlebug embossing folder -swiss dots and a papermania stamp .The flowers are from a punch and the background shapes are nesties .This was my first attempt at a double easel and i was quite pleased with the result- it did n't fit in any envelope that I had so I made it a nice little box  .

I 've gone Dotty

I meant to post this first thing this morning but of course things never go to plan when I have  work to go to . I got up in plenty of time , made the lunches  and cups of tea ,breakfast for everybody and then got Patsy off to school . Then i realised I was going to be late for work if I did n't get my bum into gear - so this gets left 'til after work and then Blogger decides to be a bugger and wont let me post - grrrr
anyway here is my card for our dotty challenge for I ♥ Promarkers -we are sponsored this week by digi doodle shop

Men's cards

we all know how difficult it can be to make cards for men, so that is our challenge for you this week at I ♥ promarkers  
This weeks challenge is sponsored by Stampeezee and you could win £10 to spend in their online store
A friend  asked me for something specific for her Dad, she wanted him in his shed with his canaries and flowers in pots .I made the card as 3 dimensional as possible adding quilled plant pots and flowers.I drew the man in the chair and the extras in his shed and of course used promarkers for colouring it all in .
I used Digital Craft Artist for the wood effect and for the poster on the inside of the door .

A fold out letter card ,a get well, and a 60th birthday

I have been really busy this weekend so  I want to show you some of the items that have occupied my time .

I made a cut file for this one and cut it all  on the cricut ,I am planning on selling these ones for Mother's day , in any colours ,with matching box and gift tag .I am also entering this one into the BUNNYZOE challenge for this month ,they want to see spring flowers.

This next one is one of my "LITTLE PEOPLE " cards , This is for Matt, a guy at work  who has a bad shoulder -luckily for him he has his lovely new bride to look after him and she is a nurse .

The last one for today is a 60 TH Birthday,this was also a cricut /Scal creation 

I also had a nice surprise - a blog award from the lovely  Eileen  (EIYIYI) 

Thank you Eileen   MWAH !!
I have to pass it on to a few talented people that i know who have less than 300 followers on their blogs .Be sure to take a look at their blogs to see the wealth of talent out there !

I am passing it to. . . . . . 

Challenge time again

I can't believe how fast this week is going ,I almost forgot to post this week's challenge card for I ♥ promarkers  .
This week we want you to use Purple and Green  . My image is from a no stamp required cd by MCS .I made all the flowers using punches and dies , The tag is punched too and the elements on it were found lurking in my "bits " box
