Male Christmas

A day late posting my card for this week! I've been doing long long hours again at the office, hubby has been abroad and so was so busy... but luckily still managed to find time to do my DT card for the I ♥ Promarkers challenge.

The theme this time is

We were so lucky to get an image to use to make our card, from one of our sponsors for this week Kenny K. The image that I chose to use is this fun Bow digi stamp which of course I colored with my promarkers. I thought this image would be great to use for other occasions, not just Christmas, besides that I fell in love with it when I saw it :P 

For the background I embossed some cardstock with an embossing folder which was a freebie in a magazine and then I just added the wooden 'Jingle Bells' sentiment, die-cut snowflakes and the fun Christmas bells to finish it off. I really love how it turned out.

Our first sponsor for this week is Kenny K with a prize of 3 digi images and 

our second sponsor is Dies to Die for and the winner gets a £10 voucher to spend in the store.

A Cute Christmas

Hello everyone. We're in November, but it's already time to start doing our Christmas cards and so at I ♥ Promarkers we have just the right theme this week to help you out with this!

For my card I decided to use this really sweet clear stamp from Nellie Snellen and DP which were a freebie in the Quick Cards magazine... a long time ago !!! To do the snow I used my Snow Marker pen, which you heat up to get the puff! 

The beautiful Christmas ribbon is from Body Shop. I managed to hide the BodyShop logo, so I was really pleased with myself :) 

We are this week sponsored by
and there will be three winners, each getting five images each.
So what are you waiting for to play along with us.

Three Of a Kind

Hi everyone. I hope everyone is well. We are nearly finished with the end of year accounts closure at the office, so hopefully I will not have to stay such long hours after work.. Mind you, I don't stay as long as the accountants! 

Anyway, onto my card, but this week it's not one of my best cards unfortunately.. and to make it worse, with the moving of the hour, I wasn't even able to get a good photo of my card! Well I just love the image, the gorgeous DP and all the flowers I put on my card. If you take a closer look you can see that there are three flowers of the same kind, which of course I put there as the theme for this week at


We have two sponsors this week

Hope you will join us this week.

No Designer Paper

Hello everyone. I hope everyone is well and fine. Sorry it's been some time since I visited but I've been so busy lately.. with work, training, working as Extra on the series Dovekeepers, and last week I've also been in Italy for the half marathon in Cremona! Well that's over now and I am pleased that I managed to do the race in 1.58, which is nine minutes less than my previous half marathon that I did in February!! It was so exciting, tiring of course, but it's such an achievement... and I'm already looking forward for my next race... can't stop running bwa ha ha ha :)

Anyway, so onto my DT card for the new challenge that started today at
I ♥ Promarkers, and the theme for this week is

Having a twins card also to do this week, I decided to do embossing for the background so as to fit for this theme .. which I thought came out quite nice, and I had never thought about this before, so I was really pleased.

The embossing folder was a magazine freebie and the die-cut is from CC Designs, while the image, which of course I colored with my promarkers, is from Lili of the Valley.

What a long day today! I took the day off to work as an Extra on the film series the Dovekeepers and then back home I had to pack up my bags as tomorrow I will be off to Italy to take part in a half marathon!!! I am so looking forward to this, even though it's a tough one!

Anyway, so better get onto my DT card for this week as I got to wake up so very early tomorrow and it's already so late.

This week the theme at

I haven't yet started my Christmas cards so this was just the perfect theme!
For my card this week I used this sweet digi image from Whimsy Stamps, which of course I colored with my promarkers. Background DP is from a magazine but I sprayed it all with glitter spray and then I finished off the card with some lovely silvery ribbon, peel offs and christmas tree embellishment.

We are this week sponsored by Letraset

A Wedding Dance

I didn't manage to do my DT card this week, so I thought to share instead a wedding card I made for my friend who got married this weekend on Saturday. We have met at the fitness and dance classes we go to, so I thought these Forever Friends dancing teddies stamp would be just perfect for her.

I colored the image with my promarkers, the border die cut is from Crafty Sentiments, the hearts are Marianne Designs, while the leaves are a Martha Stewart punch. I finished off the card with some peel offs.
