Hello everyone, it's Wednesday again today, so time for my DT card.. 
 but before that, I bet you want to hear about last Sunday's Marathon!! I've been talking so much about it lately ...  so... the weather was awful, it was cold, windy and it rained as well, but we still ran and I did it in 2.00.54, which is five minutes better than last year :D :D woo hooo big smile :) I was really really pleased, considering the weather and that I didn't train as much lately. Of course I'm still feeling a bit the consequences of the run, but today I still went for my fitness classes, which is one of the reasons I'm posting my DT card so late today.. 

Anyway, so back to cardmaking now..

And the theme for this week at I ♥ Promarkers is

For my card this week I used this really cute image from Stamping Boutique, which is our sponsor for this week. Border and balloons dies are XCut and I did the banners with a sentiment die which I cut in half. I then stuck little hearts on the banners. I think it came out real nice.

We don't have just one sponsor this week, but two.
So our first sponsor is Stamping Boutique and the prize is two digital images

and our second sponsor is Yours and Mine Papercrafts and the prize is $10 gift certificate

 So two good reasons to come join us this week.

Make us Laugh

Good morning everyone. I'm at home today, feeling not so good, so not really happy with the marathon coming up next Sunday! I'm really hoping that I will be better by then, although I don't think that I will make it in good time! Anyway, will see...
So onto my DT card for this week at I ♥ Promarkers as it's already Wednesday again.
The theme for this week is

Not one of my best cards this time! For my card today I decided to use this fun image that I had from Pollycraft. The background DP is from Papermania It's A Man's World and the stars border punch is MS. After I finished it I decided that this card would be perfect for my hubby, as it's his birthday next Sunday, and he loves football. So I added the three black, red and yellow card candies at the top for his fave team Germany. He does have hair though, and doesn't look like him he he but I'm sure he will like the fun of it :P 

We are this week sponsored by Dr Digi 
and the winner gets two digi images of the winner's choice.

Weddings and Anniversaries

Still awful weather over here! I don't know how some people love Winter... definitely not me! I know I shouldn't complain that much as it doesn't snow here and we don't get awful weather that often,  but with this weather I can't go out running as much as the last time I did I got an awful cold. So I'm really hoping it will be nicer soon as at the end of the month there's the marathon. It's all I'm talking about lately and I'm so looking forward, less than two weeks now!

Anyway, onto my DT card for this week and the theme for this week at 

I get to do quite a few wedding cards so it was an easy one for me this week. For my card I used one of my fave images from Lili of the Valley, again my border die from Crafty Sentiments and the rose flower die from Marianne Design, which also happen to be our sponsor for this week.

I finished off my card with some lovely white and golden glittery ribbon, peel offs sentiment and a charm with two celebration glasses which I attached to the bow.

As I said our sponsor for this week is Marianne Design and wow look at the prize for this week! So what are you waiting for to come and play with us.

Lots of Love

Good morning everyone. Hope you are having a lovely week and the weather is nice wherever you are. At the moment we are having some very windy days over here in Malta, and cold ones too, so not much fun for me to do my running .. and I really can't miss out on this as the marathon is getting closer and closer, less than a month now! Getting excited about it, and so looking forward.

Anyway, it's time for my DT card today, as it's Wednesday and so another new challenge at

With Valentine's Day just round the corner we have aptly chose the theme

To make my card this week I used this fun image from Mo Manning which I colored with my promarkers, magazine freebie papers and a border die from Crafty Sentiments.

We are this week sponsored by Letraset and the prize is a pack of promarkers.

Happy Valentine's Day

This week I didn't manage to make my DT card ... emm .. ha ha no not really :P .. that is not what happened. I did make a card but I mixed up completely the challenge so of course when I realised what happened it was just too late to make another one. 

Anyway, I thought I would upload a card that I made for Valentine's Day next week.... a very simple and quick one, but I think it came out really nice.

The background DP was in a magazine, and the die is from Simon Says. Then I added the bow and computer generated sentiment to finish it off.

Men At Work

Hello everyone, hope you're having a good week. My past weeks weren't so good unfortunately as we had some devastating news on the 7th January that my mum passed away. She was 81years old but still so healthy and  up on her feet everyday, so we weren't expecting this at all. It was really hard but I said that life has to move on so I just pushed myself to get back into routine, first back to work, which really helped and then back to my fitness routine and today back to card making! Not that we will forget, but it's the best medicine believe me!

Anyway, it's time for a new challenge at I ♥ Promarkers and this week the challenge is

I decided to use the really cute, Pizza Chef which our sponsor The Paper Shelter kindly let us have to use for this challenge.

I immediately remembered about some DP that I had from a magazine, so from then on it was easy peasy. The big fun heart and the sentiment were also in this set.

I really enjoyed making this card, and it was really relaxing for me. 

As I said we are this week sponsored by The Paper Shelter and the prize is a $15 voucher.
