Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - anything goes (runs for 2 weeks, 3 entries only still mind you!!!)
Sponsor & prize this week - Di's Digis ($10 gift certificate)
Yey, for 'anything goes' weeks - and this means I have managed to play along with Mo's challenge with this cutie called 'Snow Day', rejoicing in the falling snow. Yes, I wasn't exactly leaping for joy myself when the real cold, wet stuff was coming down but I can at least still appreciate the excitement for a child. LOL.
She has of course, been coloured with Promarkers and I paper pieced her coordinating snow-suit to match in with my chosen red, cream/white & black colour scheme. Now, my followers might be getting fed up of my Marianne Creatable snowflake die cuts & those that are, will be glad that this is at least my last Christmas card of the year, but to be honest, I am just not fed up of them at all! I have used them so much that I should have shares in the company! LOL. The touches of sparkle on the snow are of course, Stickles & hooray for it coming out of the bottle with no problems at all. :)
Dorcas set the last theme over at Mo's challenge, asking us to use fabric. Now then Dorcas, I don't want you to think that I have chickened out and just gone for a bit of ribbon (gorgeous though it is with beads on it - snowballs to me of course, LOL), but I have also been a bit creative with my favourite snowflakes this week. Yes, I managed to die cut some of the layers using a bit of old white shirt which I stiffened & glittered. How is that for tenacity & dedication to a cause! LOL. I even chose the card base to fit in with the fabric theme, choosing a white one with a linen weave effect embossed into it.
