Get "Well" Soon - Release the Glitter at I ♥ Promarkers

Image
Morning Everyone!
Here's my last GDT card for  I ♥ Promarkers!  I've really enjoyed my month as Guest designer, thanks so much for the opportunity ladies :-)
This weeks theme is: Release the Glitter and we are sponsored by QKR Stampede
I chose this gorgeous Wishing Well Digi from the sponsor, and thought it would be great as a Get "Well" Soon card!



I used:
Wishing Well Digi - QKR Stampede Coloured with Promarkers Dovecraft Garden Party Papers Sentiment Stamp, wood butterflies, ribbon & lace from my stash

I added glitter to the butterflies and little dots around the well, as it is a wishing well after all! 



Hope you're having a lovely week!

Indian Elephant Birthday Card

Image
Hello!
Here's a card I've made for my Mums Friend. I was told she likes Indian Elephants and purple! And she's planning on going to ride an elephant in a few years for her 50th Birthday



I had to dig real deep to find some purple Indian looking papers but I think these fit the bill!
All the bits I used are pretty random from my stash!
This was definetely a Stash raider card!
I coloured the elephant with Promarkers and added one of the gems on her pretty headwear!



Suffering badly with a migraine at the mo so I'll pop round to your blogs as soon as I'm feeling a little better!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Snowy Squirrel Quickie Christmas Card (LOTV)

Image
Hello!
I saw a challenge on Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas blog to make a card in 20 minutes or less! Doesn't that sound nice?! A whole card in 20 mins. 
Hmm so that means no stamping and colouring then...! So I reached for my LOTV Winter Wildlife artpad and some silver sentiment stickers and here's what I made! (Just in the nick of time!)



The paper is from Little Claire  Layered with silver mirror card Used patterned scissors around the image frame Silver gems in each corner to finish!



I'd love to see what you guys could make in just 20 mins! 
Gosh just blogging it takes about 3 times as long lol!
Hope you've had a lovely weekend!

Hi everyone!

The other day I came across the lovely Monikas blog! She makes some very inspiring cards making her own backgrounds with no patterned paper which I love!

She's also got a challenge this month as its her birthday for you to re-create one of her cards which I was really excited about! (Link below)

Here's my card:


It covers 3 of the category's she provided:

CAS 
No pattern paper
Manly card

I made the Union Jack by drawing a circle in pencil (later rubbed out) and just dotting with my Promarkers!

And of course It had to have a classic mini stamped :-P


Here's Monkias card that I based it on:



Hope you like it Monika! :-) Happy Birthday!
