A painful post

Just a quick post from me a s I'm suffering with my neck/shoulder /arm  pain again - I can barely lift my arm and it hurts to type so i'm keeping it brief
Here is my DT card for I ♥ promarkers  for this week's challenge .It is sponsored again by  Digi Doodle shop

We want to see what you can do without using any design papers -here's mine, my sentiment looks wonky ,but it's not honest ! It is the shadow ,I took the picture in the early evening and the light was nt great !

Anything goes

I adored this stamp as soon as I saw it and could n't wait to use it .The perfect opportunity to show it off came with this week's challenge at I ♥ promarkers  because ANYTHING GOES - last time we did this theme we had over 240 entries  so I need to knuckle down and keep up with them this time !

I made my card shape from an A3 piece of card and cut the scallop card shape from Wildcard  cart on my cricut .I cut it at 8" cos I wanted it to be huge !I have finished it off with a sentiment circle from our sponsor this week -SENTIMENTS FOR YOU ,these are brilliant because you can size them to fit inside your nestabilities perfectly

Boss's birthday

It is my manager's birthday this week and as always I have the job of making the card from all of us lot at work , I decided to make a big one since there are a few of us to sign  it
As she loves her horses I decided to include it in the theme,but that was as far as got with it .I searched the internet for free downloadable images, i needed one that would convert easily to a cut file in SCAL  .
The finished horse then sat on my desk for a few days waiting for some inspiration to help complete the look .I was watching create and craft and saw Nikky Hall demonstrating aquamarkers with her latest CD and there i was totally hooked , out came the credit card and i ordered the aquamarkers.I already have some ,but these were new exclusive colours so I just had to have them !
Not satisfied with that ,I then went to polkadoodles and ordered the CD .My cd arrived this morning so I went to polkadoodles challenge blog and decided to use their sketch to finish my card and enter it into their challenge

A sketch challenge

  This  week at I ♥ promarkers we are challenging you to use our sketch in your project , we are being sponsored by Kenny K and you could win 5  digi images from their online store.I have used one of Kenny k's images for my card.I also used my cricut machine and Rock princess cartridge to cut my girls rock sentiment  and stars.I actually ran out of the pink mirror card that i used for the matt layers ,so when it came to the shadow layers for my sentiment and for the small stars i just cut them from silver mirror card and coloured them with my magenta promarker for a perfect match.

Patsy's school projects

I just wanted to show you Patsy's easter projects. They were for the end of term competition at school.She put an awful lot of work into both works of art and was very proud of them both and she went off to school  so hopeful of winning a prize .
 Unfortunately some horrible child in her class thought it would be a good idea to shove Patsy over making her drop it and smash it .Luckily i took pictures last night , she did nt win any prizes but she did have fun making them

Happy Easter challenge

This week' s I♥ promarkers  challenge is an Easter theme, it is once again sponsored by Joanna Sheen .
I don't send Easter cards as a rule so I used this Mo Manning image with a sentiment that I found  and thought  that I could use it to send to a friend of mine that I need to have a good old chat with !
I made the card shape with xxl dies from Go Kreate in my favourite gadget -my Grand Caliber
