Blooming Marvellous

Morning everyone! Hope your are all well and enjoying your week so far. I am still recovering from a really heavy cold that struck almost two weeks ago. Maybe I should go to the doctor? Well, I wait a day or two more then we'll see. I think the astma has gotten a bit of a beat and that's why the breathing is still a bit heavy on me. Oh well! I could be worse, I could be like last week. LoL

Well my friends, we have a new challenge up for you over at Passion for Promarkers. This weeks theme is "Blooming Marvellous". Just add som flowers to your creation and you are good to go. I think we'll have a busy week this one...

However, even if the theme is flowers I was in the mood for some Christmas card and winter theme, so I ended up with this creation. I have once again use the limited edition markers from Letraset, the new set for winter and fall. That's why my reds are a bit lighter than I usually colour my red stuff with, as I like it to be darker. But I need to step out of my comfort zone and try some new stuff as well.

I used an old image from Magnolia, Sweden and I really love the collection of snow men that came out a few years ago. I don't think I ever have coloured it in red so this is the first for that. I combinded it all with some wonderful designer papers from Bildmålarna Sweden. I don't remember the name of it, sorry. But it is this years edition from them. Love the rich colours they use.


I also bought the wonderful die Slender firs from my teamies shop Moa Pyssel and used that for the first time. I have wanted to buy this die for some time now and finally when I saw that Lotta had it in her store, I went for it. I will use it a lot as I love my trees. :) I also fond a little fence in my decoration box that keeps growing... How does that happen? I put some picket fence glitter on it and a few miniroses from WOC and then added a snowflake charm to go with it all.


The flower cluster is mostly made of flowers from WOC but the red and white flowers are from I am Roses as they have some wonderful prizes on big packs of flowers. They will probably last me a life time. LoL I fond some pearly thing in silver and used it to match up the silver charm. Made a doily with a die, that I now don't have the name in my head for. Well, that sums it all up I think... Well, glitter is everywhere; on the image, on the flowers, on the fence etc.


Sponsoring this weeks challenge is Polka Doodles and that is one lucky winner who will receive a digi to play with. Isn't that a great prize?

Anyway, sorry for the really long post today. I try to keep it down, but today was not such day. :) I hope you come and join us for our adventure over at Passion for Promarkers this week. I can't wait to see what you will inspire us all with!

Love n hugs
