Anything goes over at Passion for Promarkers

Morning and hello! How are you all doing? Hope you're doing fine or at least better than we, me and my youngest. I have such headache and earache. My son is coughing like crazy and fever for the second week in a row. Tomorrow he has to write a test. I think my pain mainly comes from my med combo. Well not the earache but the headache. I have to stand it for a while longer and hopefully it will settle.

Anyway, we have a new challenge for you over at Passion For Promarkers. We have the theme of Anything goes and that should be nice and easy. The only thing that you need to do is to colour with Promarkers or their cousins aquamarkers or the missed tria markers the rest of the Letraset family.

We are sponsored by A Day For Daisies which is offering one lucky winner a gift voucher worth $12. The store is filled with lovely charming images. Really tons to look at and fill up your digi library with. 

I have used the image called Christmas Poinsetta and of course it's coloured with my Promarkers. Since I don't feel that well at the moment have I ended up with a easy and go to design once again. I have used an old paper pad from Panduro in red and browns of diffrent shades. Then some white card stock and it got a bit brighter. I also used a doily that I cut in half and by that streched it a bit. I also used some brown heart shaped pearls which is a perfect match in colours for this card. 


Sorry about the photo. It is a bit redish but I will try to fix that tomorrow. Considering that I have taken the photo indoors in a black room with very little light it's a great photo! LoL Anyway, I sign off here and hope that you will come and join us over at PFP this week. 

Take care and do more of what makes you happy!

Love n hugs,
Marie

Make it bloom over at the Paper Shelter

EDITED: I got really sick during the night to Thursday so no card for me this time. High fever and a really painful earache.

Morning and hello! I am back again with a little post. We have a new challenge up today over at The Paper Shelter and the theme is set to Make it bloom.

Sadly I have not had the time to make my card just yet. We moved a meeting the soccer club so I got my planned card making time made into soccer meeting instead. I will have my card made up later on today, promise!


As always, we have a gift voucher up worth $30 when you play with the Paper Shelter brand. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning 3 digis of your choice. Nice and easy to play along, right? You can enter our challenges up to three times, but at least one of your creations needs to have a TPS image on it.

In the meantime you could always jump on over to the Paper Shelter challenge blog and see what the other ladies has been up to. There is some fabby inspiration for you all over at the Shelter.

Love n hugs

Anything but a card over at PFP

Morning and hello! I am back and in time this time. At least I hope that my post has gone live when it should. It's the middle of a busy working week, I do only work 4 days per week so Tuesday and Wednesday is Mid week. Meetings and soccer will take up my time this week. I will be glad when the week is over actually. Or at least when it's Thursday evening and I can breath and relax again.

We have a new challenge for you this week over at Passion for Promarkers. And this week it really is a challenge as we want to see anything but a card. And you have to use your Promarkers or related markers to these to colour you image. So here is some thoughts on what you can make: tags, book marks, images on lay outs or like me, I pre prepped for a X-mas gift.


I have had a stash with boxes to alter as I never know when I need them. This is was my last one so it is a bit bigger than the others. I used some mega, super old designer papers from Dove Craft and I actually throw the rest of the in the trash! How could I? Well the patterns was really big and I would never ever use them and I don't think that any other person would either.

It was a lot of cutting but very simple and then some pearl ribbon and some gold string to that and a few metal corners to that. Nothing in the middle as I don't know who will get the box yet. That is yet to be added. To the box I made a tag which I coloured with my Promarkers/Brush markers. Then I could it so I had only partial of the image left over and added a sentiment stamp saying Merry Christmas  in Swedish. When time has come do I plan to add name and text to the back side of the tag.

Hope you will take the time to join our challenge as it is fun to be challenge for real from time to time. You have a whole week filled with crafting joy before our challenge closes for the week.

Love n hugs

Christmas Joy over at Winter Wonderland

Hello, hello, hello from Sweden and a very late post. Had trouble with my internet for a few days, but now it seems to work again. That means I am mega late with my beloved Winter Wonderland post which I am also hosting. It seems to be a week when nothing works out like it should at all, or at least not the way I had planned it.

Ok, things like that is supposed to tell you to slow down right? I have decided to handle it like that and here comes my card finally for my Winter Wonderland challenge. I have set the theme to Christmas Joy and that would simply mean that I want to see something that brings you joy for Christmas. It might be to sing the lovely songs, giving the gifts,  recieving them may be, decorate the tree or stuff like that. For me it's pretty much making the Christmas sweets and thinking about my granny. We always used to make it together and after we played card to three in the mornings. My grand dad was not really a fan of that as he thought he wouldn't get his breakfast in time. He couldn't cook at all. Granny did all of that.

So now when I make the Christmas candy with my partner and sometimes one or two of the kids we try to find a new playing list on spotify or and old CD with music on and that is played for the whole of December. Mostly we go back to the same old stuff as it's tradition.

For my card have I used the lovely Christmas Bird trio. I have used the pre coloured version for this card. I had planned to use the other version of non coloured birdies as well but now I am not sure that I will have the time to play with it as well. We'll see how it goes. 

This card is really simple as I was also getting the kids' cold that they have been struggling with the last few weeks so not much energy left over. I have used an old paper pack from Dove Craft I think and just used a few happy layers on my card. I did even make it A6 format this time. That way I could use up some left overs from other projects. I even tied a bow with some left over ribbon for a simple but cute decoration for the card. I can probably even send the card with a single stamp to one of my long distance pen pals when it's time to hit the post office in time for Christmas.

Anyway, sorry once again to all my teamies over at WW and here for my late post. 

Love n hugs

Anything goes with option pastels

Morning and hello! It's a dubble post day today so I better get started early. Well not me but my blog posts. This morning am I offering you some inspiration for the Creatalicious Challenges and this time do we have the theme of Anything goes with an opition of using pastel colours on our creations.



We are sponsored by Sasayaki Glitter which is offering a lucky winner one digi of your choice. It has to be one of the non-coloured ones

Started in her spare time as a hobby, the Sasayaki Glitter store has rapidly grown from a handful of images to a specially curated shop full of images perfect for all crafting needs.  Inspiration is drawn from the life of artist and owner Naz Smith including her travels and her number one love, her son. Sasayaki Glitter Digital Stamps hopes to excite and inspire crafters to create beautiful handmade cards and gifts, and Naz looks forward to many more years of creative endeavours.

I have used my lovely and well loved promarkers / triamarkers from Letraset / Winsor and Newton to colour this little one. I did also use some of the glossy accent stuff as I normally use it for glas and wet stuff. Adds a little extra to the creation.
The designer papers are once again from LOTV / NitWit collection from years ago. I still have some of it left. It's actually from two different pads that goes quite well together: Up and away and Pastel dreams. Some of my favourite dies has also been used. They are from Lawn Fawn and some flower punches has also been put to work here as well as a scallop border punch. A text stamp from Bildmålarna is use to say congratulations. I used some pearls for the center of the flower and some distress inks around all edges of the dps and image. Kind of cute I think. LoL

So now I hope that you will come and play along with us over at Creatalicious Challenges this time and it couldn't be easier to play along. Either pastels or anything goes.

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs
Marie
