Female relative/Mum at Passion for Promarkers and Things with wings at Crafts & Me

Well haven't I been a naughty blogger!  My new years resolution in tatters lol!  I just couldnt get on blogger last night and was in so much pain anyway I just scribbled away furiously instead :(  Back to the Drs on friday unless I ring at 8am tomorrow and try and grab a book on the day one, I hope so as the tablets he gave last week are about to run out eeeek!  Not that they *do* anything anyway but its a comfort thinking they might ease it off a little.

Got 2 cards to share with you tonight.  The first one is for Passion for Promarkers DT and the challenge is For a female relative/Mum.  I wanted to print a mothers day sentiment for this one but I completely ran out of card, not one sheet left so have been up to Strikes today and had a scribble on some of theirs and got one suitable for the digi papers I print and one suitable for colouring work.  I hope Letraset bring out that gorgeous new card they have in their new stamp packs soon as I'm itching to get hold of some more of that, its like silk and blends beautifully!

Crafty Emma's Store is sponsoring this week with a £10 voucher to spend there so rmember to use your promarkers/flexmarkers/tria or aquamarkers to be eligible!

For this I used a recently acquired Tilda stamp called Tilda spreading love and she's actually throwing hearts around but I thought that a bit valentineish so I used flowersoft instead.  I chose a turquoise colour theme as I didnt want it to appear too weddingish either lol!  I added a little heart charm to the bow (that really helps set it aside from valentines/weddings....!) and the making memories cherish border (Oh dear, blame the medication!) and a heart shaped doily (OK I'm amusing myself now!)  The papers are floral fantasy by Crafts and Me and I used some ancient button brads with some turquoise prima flowers.

Next up is Crafts & Me and our challenge this week is Things with Wings.  Naturally as the shop is FULL of winged fairies, angels and creatures I selected a stamp that hasnt got wings only because I really really love Melody and wanted to colour her :)  This one is Fashion Melody by Lemon Shortbread.  I saw the rest of the DT had naturally gone with images that are fairies/angels so got a bit nervous but then Mona piped up that she was using Cali Girl which isnt either so safety in numbers ha!

As I'd run out of card for printing on I had a rummage through the ones I'd already printed off from the Floral Fantasy paper pack and went for one with hot pink flowers on which isn't a colour you'll see here too often, I do like to push the boat out sometimes :)  I wanted to keep this pretty simple mainly because I'd also run out of glue dots so flowers were out of the question but with papers like this in the background you dont *need* a lot of embellishment as the paper does the work for you.  I used some letratac to attach the butterflies :)

This particular paper has gorgeous hot pink flowers with some violet tones in the bottom corner so I picked those colours out and scribbled away adding a fold here and there and punched out little violet and holographic silver flowers for her brooch and added punched butterflies and some pink gems and 2 diddy pearls on her pockets.  The sentiment is from a stampman sheet and its matted on violet and holographic silver card.
