Happy Birthday Lucas

My friend at work has a gorgeous little boy called Lucas and he will be 2 tomorrow he has a pretty 7 year old sister, so when I saw this image I knew I just had to use it for his Birthday card.

The image is high hopes and has been coloured with promarkers and the papers are SU.
We have friends coming to stay this weekend so I won't be about for a couple of days.
Hope you all have a good weekend

Thanks for looking Sue :o)

PFP Week 23 Animals

Hi here we are at week 23 at Passion For Promarkers and this week Helen has chosen animals.
When I looked at my stamp collection I realized I am quite fond of animal images and seem to have quite a few... mainly mice which is a bit weird really!!

There was only one image I could use this week and that was my prize from Mo at Mo's Digital pencil which was an image she drew of my darling honey bringing me the tea towel(something she likes to do!!).

I have decided to use this image to make some Christmas cards for people it will mean something to e.g the lady that walks her in the day for me and her beauty parlour lady (she get more pampering than I do)

The papers are from SU and of course the image is from Mo's Digital Pencil

Thanks For Looking Sue :o)

passion for promarkers week 22 Forest Green and Poppy

This week we are on week 22 at PFP and we have a very Christmasy combination Forest Green and Poppy from our guest designer Claire.
This has been a good combination it has got me thinking I must knuckle down and make my cards otherwise I will be buying them!!!

The image is one of the new Christmas Mangas and I love him he is so sweet.
These are last years Dovecraft papers I am trying to be good this year and not buy new ones...wonder how long it will last mmmm!

I have used Tiets sketch from "Playing in the Sugar Bowl" I will just make the challenge, but I will be using this sketch again I love it.

When doing this post I noticed I have missed a bit!!! first one to tell me what I have missed I will send some images and some Christmas papers.
This has been rectified on the real card now.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)

SOL Last Night

I joined Marlene's Scarp Online yesterday evening and here is the result.
It was fun having all the pieces of paper cut up and not knowing what the end result would be...I look forward to the next one.

I had a bit of a nightmare with this card I used some new repositional tape and it is rubbish... when I got up this morning all the paper was coming off and curling so I had to do some repair work with good old double-sided tape.

Image is a WOJ Christmas Henry mouse love this little chap and the papers I have no idea sorry found them in my stash.. I think they may have been in a candy win.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)

Honey's Greeting

This is all about the dog!!! you may or may not know I won Mo's first challenge yesterday, I cant tell you how excited I was was when I found out about the prize...the prize was to choose a subject for her to draw an image of and also to name it.

For me it had to be my beautiful Honey girl (I am sure if I had grand-children it would have been different but I don't!!!)
At the moment she loves to greet me when I get home from work with the tea-towel, I know pretty random but who knows what goes through their little minds.

I emailed Mo yesterday and described Honey and told her about the tea-towel thing!! this morning when I woke there in my in-box was this fabulous image waiting for me and it is called:-

"Honey's Greeting"

Animals are not my strong point when it comes to colouring but I just had to have a go (definitely need some more practice).

I have used the Truly Scrumptious sketch by Mina and the theme is Autumn not really true to theme but the colours are right.

I am hoping to join Marlene this evening for her first SOL in English have all my bits cut up and ready to go so may have another card to show tomorrow depending on how it goes!!.

Thanks for looking. Sue :o)

Passion For Promarkers 20 is a recipe

This weeks challenge at PFP is from Denise and we have a recipe 3 different shapes 2 different papers 1 ribbon (can you believe it I have messed up again I will be getting the sack!!)I have 2 lots of ribbon but they are the same colour so only 1 honest!!!

This card has been made for my FIL Birthday on will be his first one since MIL died so I think he may be a bit sad, we are all going to see him in the evening to play cards which he loves to do hopefully it will help take his mind off things.

The papers and the image are both SU but I am not so sure I want to advertise this fact at the moment!!! I am sure most of you know what I am talking about.

I have decoupaged the hat gloves and apples to give it a little bit of depth.

Here is a closer look at the decoupage (click the picture)

It was my 2year blogoversary yesterday the 5th Oct....if you are interested and would like to take a look at my first ever post it can be found by clicking here

I can feel some candy coming on.... I will sort something out very soon.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)

Truely Scumptious Sketch Challenge and Simon Says 24 hr Challenge

Hi all hope you are enjoying world card making day whatever you are doing!!
I have made this card for the Truely Scrumptious Sketch Challenge.

I am also going to enter this for Simon Says 24hr Challenge which you can see details for here.

This is my first attempt at a new colouring technique which I found here.
It is using my trusty promarkers and also my polychromos and sansodor, I love my promarkers but sometimes I want a more subtle effect and as hard as I try I cannot get on with distress inks...they just don't do what I want them too!!!

The darker skin was a bit of a mistake but I have been trying for ages to get a good effect with darker skin and I an quite pleased with this one.

Here is a close up of the image click picture to see better.

I will defiantly be practising this technique some more.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)
