Some good news and a challenge card

Hello to you all! The rain is pooring down here today and I am in pain again. Surprize! Way to many weather changes this summer period. Beyond the fact that I am in so much pain today that I can hardly use my fingers, I decided to use the weather for something good. As we have a basement that is below ground and made of concrete we have some trellises in the washing room so it won't be that cold during winter when we (read "I") are down there to take care of the laundry. I decided to carry them all out to get them washed by the rain, so I am now hoping for some heavy rain to get all the dirt off. Turning something bad into something good. Clever me!

It's Wednesday again and my turn to host the wonderful challenge over at the Paper Shelter once again. This week we are doing the theme Brads and/or buttons. Either one needs to be show on your creation. You know you all have them laying around so why not use them.

For this card have I used the lovely image called Extreme. I love this fun charming boys images that Veronica and Pedro has put up in the store lately. There is also an super cute fireman, a video gamer etc. They are so much fun to colour and as (almost) always it's coloured with my Letraset family, which will be used even more in the future. More about that later. I've used some bright and lovely dps from Echo Park and a simple border die from Magnolia, Sweden together with three brads to the the upper right corner to make this card. It was for Isac, a friend of my youngest son when he went to his birthday party a little while ago.

The gift voucher

As always we have the lovely price of a gift certificate up for grabs. It's worth $30 if you play with our brand, the Paper Shelter. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning three digis of your choice. It's a very easy challenge so do come and join us for this one!

Passion for ProMarkers

And now to some good news on top of all this! About a week ago did I get a question by mail from Denise, boss of the Passion for Promarker challenge if I wanted to join their team. And of course I wanted to. That challenge blog is the reson to why I started my own blog years ago. My first ever win/top five was there, and I still have that card as a reminder that I can do it. So I am very humble and grateful and happy and moved and... to be on this fantasic team. I won't be able to join my favourite challenge anymore, but I do get to be a part of the whole adventure. I am so happy about this! Thanks for having me join you and I will do my very best!

Love and hugs
