I ♥ promarkers challenge

Thankfully the weather  has changed a bit and it is not quite so stifling today , we had a massive thunder storm yesterday and the air has cleared ,today is sunny and bright with a lovely cool breeze -so much better for me !
My card for this week's challenge at I ♥ promarkers also demonstrates that I like it cool  -A nice wintery card , A bit of a strange one to do when the theme for our challenge is to use FLOWERS ;0)

Our sponsor is Di'sDigis, I picked my image for this one before I realised what the challenge theme was .

Black and white plus one challenge

This week at i ♥ promarkers we are asking to see your black and white plus one colour creations.The challenge is sponsored by sassy designs by susies die cut dreams.

I figured that it was about time i made a start on my christmas cards so here is the first for this year !
I used an LOTV stamp , the snow globe is cut with a circle die and i chopped the bottom off , I added distress ink whilst the card was still in the die to give the globe a more rounded feel , the base of it is just a strip of card with the corners rounded off .
I used a die and some rather hideous holographic paper to add the swirls  to my snowflake ,proving that even the most awful bits of scrap can look quite effective - ( if you keep it minimal )  ;0)

A sketch to challenge you

 Hello everybody ,This week over on I ♥ ProMarkers our challenge is for you to follow a sketch.  We're being sponsored by The Secret Crafter for this one and they are offering a  prize of 3 digi images of your choice.
Here is my DT card-I used this cute Mo Manning image and teamed it with some papers that were a gift in a craft mag a while back.I decided that I would use my cricut to cut the frame as I don't use it half as much as I should do -I still buy too many dies unnecessarily as there are many different ones on my cartridges that would do .I think I just like collecting crafty goodies ;0
