Howdy Folks,
Week two of my New Year Resolution to keep this blog up to date.  So here goes.
I was messing about with my Promarkers intending to enter The I Love Promarkers challenge for this week, but I just couldn’t fit any buttons or lace on my card, which were this weeks requirements.  I did however, manage to meet the Criteria of The Paper Shelter Challenge Here  So I will be entering this card in Challenge No 45 – Anything Goes.  The image I have used is Rapunzel from The Paper Shelter Here.  The thing I like about this site is that you also get a coloured image as well, for those really quick cards that we all need from time to time.
I have had a bash at using a blending tool on the base card and it looks a bit different from the cards that I normally produce, but I am quite pleased (and surprised) with the outcome.  Hope you like it too.

Promises Kept!

Well, as promised, here I am attending to my blog.

I had some inspiration in the form of a post by RedRottie on the Do Crafts site. She has created a system for those (like me) suffering from a severe lack of Mojo.
Following her instruction I had the following criteria:

Colour: Purple
Shape: Circle
Image: Human
Technique: Embossing
Embellishments: Glitter
Theme: Thank You

Together with this I have decided to enter this item in the I Love Promarkers Challenge - "Anything Goes"

Promarkers used:-
Face: Ivory, Blush Vanilla and Pink (any pink will do – I suppose!)
Dress:  Ivory, Lavender, Orchid Amethyst, Lilac
Tights: Ivory, Lilac
Hair: Ivory, Caramel, Vanilla
(Some day you might even be able to see a difference between face and hair – but for now I will have to keep working on it!)

I have used Nestabilities for the shapes cut and the font on the

Thank You’ is Before The Rain
Oh, and the image is Mo Manning from Digital Pencil Too

Apologies and Promises

Evening Everyone (anyone?)

Been a while since I have stopped by my own blog!  Apologies for my absence, but we have had a berevement in the family which has kinda taken over my life for a while.  With that and then the festive period it has been fairly hectic.  So that's my apology, now for the promise!  I intend to take part in more challenges this year, so I promise to try and keep on top of it all more effectively.

No cards for just now, just wishes for a Happy New Year and please (if there is anyone out there) stop by from time to time.
