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.

New Beginnings

Hello everyone and a happy new year to all. I hope 2015 will be the best year ever for everyone. For me it didn't start off so good as I wasn't well, had a cold, but now finally I'm ok again, back to work and back to running :) .. So really pleased about this, as I had to stop due to an injury that I had, but now I'm ok and in fact this week I already did 9.7k on Monday and another 10k on Tuesday. I need to get back in shape for the Malta half marathon which will be next month, on the 22nd February (on hubby's birthday btw), so trying to do as much as I can !

Anyway, it's another year, a Wednesday, so we at I ♥ Promarkers have started the challenges again, and what better way to start off the year with a NEW BEGINNINGS theme.

I just couldn't have been happier as it meant that I could do a baby card, cards which I love doing so much.

For this card I used an embossing folder that was a freebie in a magazine. Love the size of this as it was just the perfect size for making a square card! The cute baby elephant image was kindly given to us by our sponsor for this week

The prize for this week from our sponsor Eureka Stamps is three digi images of the winner's choice.

I hope you will be able to join us.

Anything Goes

Hello everyone, good evening.. Just returned from my Insanity and Bokwa classes and tonight we ended it with a bang as we had a Christmas surprise for our instructors and gave them a gift and finished off with a little party and cake. ... So first we burned the calories and then we put them in again :P .. well it's that time of the year!!

Anyway, today it's a new challenge at I ♥ Promarkers and this week the theme is an easy ANYTHING GOES

So that was really fun, as I could use anything and do whatever I wanted... which was just perfect for me being so busy!

To do my card I chose this really cute image Enu from one of our sponsors Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps. I had so much fun coloring it, and then I finished it off with chalk on the background behind the image. The paper is the paper pad Out Of Print and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.

The prize from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps is a voucher of $10

but we also have a second sponsor this week, and that is Marianne Design
Monthly Sponsor

Thank you for looking.


Hello everyone. This post was supposed to be up quite some time ago, last week I think!!! but I didn't realise it didn't post as I had forgot to do the schedule!!!! Only today I realised while preparing this week's challenge !!! awww awww :(  ..  Really don't know what to say... so well I just deleted what I had written .. and here is the card..

The theme was Travel and I had used this cute image from Lili of the Valley which I thought would be perfect.  ... and I needed to do an engagement card as well... so double perfect it was!!!

To do the hearts I used my Simon Says Stamp die and the leaves die near the sentiment is Marianne Design. I colored the image with my promarkers and the yellow on the sky is chalk.

So, there will be another card tomorrow!!! 

Thank you for looking

A Christmas Carol

Hello everyone. Hope you are having a nice weekend and a lovely Sunday. It's very nice and sunny over here in Malta and me and hubby will be going out for lunch today. So I thought before we go out I would post my DT card for this week's new challenge at I ♥ Promarkers as I still hadn't been uploaded it yet!!! Well I should be a little bit more relaxed now as the worst time at the office have passed.. and shouldn't have to stay overtime up till 6.00pm everyday!!... besides that, we got a new laptop for our son, so I can get ours back, and have more time on it :P

Ok so, here is my card, a Christmas Card for the new theme

I think it came out quite nice, and there is so much going on it it!

The lovely DP was a freebie in a magazine, the lovely stamp is from Crafty Sentiments, and there is the puffed up snow again which I love to do so much. I've had the Christmas tree for such a long long time, in fact had bought it when I started making cards, but never got round to using it and this time I used it and decorated it myself with all the stuff on it.

We are this week sponsored by Polka Doodles and the prize will be a surprise :)

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.
