Challenge time over at TPS

Hello there dear friends! I am back and I am typing fast as I have had such problems with the internet access and blogger the last week. Felt totally lost and had tons to do needing the computer and the net. How typical isn't that?

Had a blast of a day yesterday or not. First the cat to the vet for some surgery, then one of the kids throw up in the car, then the internet again and to finish of a lovely day the washing mashine broke. Isn't life just wonderful? My brother would have told me to be grateful. It couldn't be much worse. LoL At least I am feeling good even if I am so stressed, but it will pass.

Now to my card. This image has been laying on my desk just waiting to be used just like the others I have been using the last couple of posts. I am not friends with my printer either as it keeps smearing the ink colouring with my dear promarkers. It's fine using the copics but with my crappy hands it's easier to hold on to and colour with as they are bigger.

Ok then back to the card, coloured with my letraset family and some metallic markers from the same gang. Papers are from Maja Design Vintage Summer. Love those so much that I don't want to use them. LoL Some gesso on a metallic star die made with spellbinders. Flowers from WOC, and so is the metal corner and lace. Charms from Bildmålarna, the rose ribbon from the Ribbon girls or WOC. I don't remember. Some distress ink is used to distress all the edges. Pearls from BunnyZoe and metall spirals from Magnolia, Sweden.

As always we have a $20 gift voucher up for grabs if you play in our challenge over at the TPS challenges with a TPS image. (Gosh what a strange sentense that became). If you play with another brand you can win three digis of your own choise. Nice too right?

With this said, I hope that you come and join us for our Metal embellishment challenge over at the Paper Shelter this week.

Love n hugs

Hi Marie, What a day, whew!! you must have been exhausted.
Lovely card soo sweet image and wonderful design.
I have some Spectrum Noir Pens and they are a wee bit thicker than the Promarkers. I love my Promarkers but the Spectrum Pens are just as good and colour really well. They have a fine and blunt point.
This is not a promotion, no shares for me, it may be another option for you.

Love all the pretty blues (my favorite color) on your cute card, Marie - thanks so much for sharing it with us this week at the Simon Says Stamp challenge!

A tip I learned to avoid smearing your printer ink when coloring......dump some clear embossing powder IMMEDIATELY on your digital image when it comes out of the printer, and heat emboss it.....that solved the problem for me....

Yep, we all know THOSE days, when everything is against us... meh... Anyway, your card is full of joy, love the bright colours & great colouring skills. Thank you for joining us at the Celebrate the Occasion challenge and hope to see you back again. Hugs

ooh one of those days - yep really dislike them - the rotters! my hands are so bad just broke some more of the dinner service - lol! thankfully DH gets it and worries more about my hands than the things I break lol!
have you tried changing the menu on your print function? when i print digi's i change from normal to fast draft in the 'preferences' tab. i've found i get a much lighter print which dries a lot quicker and doesn't blue or smear. hope this is of use to you hun!
this is a really gorgeous card, beautifully coloured and embellished Marie! You've got such a good eye for detail sending gentle hugs Karen x
