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!!!

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.

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

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.

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.

Winter Birthday

I'm so late with my DT Card this week.. a day late! I've been so busy again with loads of work and  training as I'm preparing myself for a half marathon this month in Italy.. but that's not all... Today I also started going to beginners Latin and Ballroom classes with my hubby.. So after doing an errand straight after work off we went to our first dancing class :) I never thought I would see this day as my hubby just doesn't like dancing but there we were learning the cha cha steps together he he :) Now I just hope that we would continue.

Anyway, better get onto my card and this week the theme for the challenge at 

To tell you the truth I just didn't know what to do at first but then I found this gorgeous stamp that I had never used and thought it would be perfect for this theme. 

The pretty DP was a magazine freebie, die is MB and the border punch is MS. I recycled the beautiful suede like ribbon from an old shop bought card and I also colored the two pearls with my promarkers as I didn't have the color I wanted.

Feeling Distressed

What a busy day today.. after work I headed straight off for fitting as will be working as an Extra for a few days next month in a foreign biblical film that will be shot in Malta - the Dovekeepers. I was so excited when they called me yesterday, even though it wasn't the one Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are filming here at the moment. Anyway, when I was done with that it was already time for my Bokwa class so another rush home to change and off out again for the class phew :) . .. I really don't know how to relax... always wanting to do so much in so few time !!!!
So well better get onto my DT card for this week. This time the challenge at

It's such a long time since I did distressing on my card, so I was really hoping I would get it right. I chose some thick DP which I could distress and did some in the way I knew how all around the DP.

Hello everyone. Another week gone by and so it's time for another challenge at I ♥ Promarkers. The theme for this week is TAGS.

I very rarely add tags to my cards, or do any tags, so I found this quite a challenge to do. ... but finally I managed to add one small tag to my card..

The image that I used for my card is from Lili of the Valley and DP is a very oldie one from Papermania. Die-cut butterflies are Spellbinders.

We are this week sponsored by Visible Image and the prize is a lovely stamp set which you can see on the Challenge Blog. 

I hope you can join us this week.

Sweet Treats

Good morning everyone. I can't believe we're already in September and that Summer will soon be gone. Yesterday it rained a little and I'm already feeling the weather a bit cooler so I'm a little sad as I really love Summer. Of course all good things have to come to an end, but looking on the bright side of this, I'm hoping it will bring me back my crafty mojo :P and that I will be blog hopping again and making more cards ;)

I do already feel a little crafty mojo back ...

 This is my DT card for this week's new challenge at

The theme for this week is yummy yummy

For my card I used this gorgeous image from one of our sponsors Sherri Baldy, and then used some lovely DP which were free in a magazine... a long time ago. 

The die-cut hearts is a Simon Says die and the sentiment stamps, which I inked with brown ink, is from AmyR stamps. I also used a spellbinders die for the zig zags and then finished it off with sweets and cupcake stickers on the side and of course the lovely bow.
Our sponsors for this week are two ....

Make Your Own Background Paper

Hello everyone. Not one of my best cards this week unfortunately. I can't see my mojo anywhere near at the moment, well in Summer I hardly see it at all... I'm always so busy enjoying Summer but this time I'm also so busy at the office staying so late and with the Auditors coming as from next Monday I don't think I'll be leaving any earlier at all from now :( .. 

Anyway, onto my card now which I made for the new challenge that started yesterday at I ♥ Promarkers and this week we are challenging you to make your own Background Paper.

Not an easy one for me, being like I am at the moment, but then I remembered a really large rubber stamp that I have, Cover-a-Card from Impression Obsession. I inked it using three different colored inks and stamped it on my card. I really loved how it turned out and so pleased too that I got to use this stamp.

The stamp that I am using for my card is from one of our sponsors for this week Squigglefly
and our second sponsor is Marianne Design

I hope you can come and join us this week. Check out the challenge blog to see what the other girls did and the prizes that you can win.
