Promarker Challenge Blog Wk 1

I know I have a passion for paper and glue. Any normal person can understand that. Daughter No 2, Erin, has a passion for shoes. She came in on Friday night having been shopping with the last of her birthday money. I don't know quite how far she thinks this birthday money stretches but she's managed to buy quite a lot with it! In she came with a pair of black thingies with platform soles and 5" heels. I have to say, they're quite amazing. I was frightened to ask how much they cost. How she's going to manage to walk in them I don't know. Considering the fact that she's already nearly 5' 10 and a 1/2", I had to point out they will make her over 6'3. She just nodded. When she meets Mr Right (or Mr Alright as cynical old me calls him), he'll have to be blooming tall!

This is my entry for the new Promarker Challenge. I'm still getting used to the pens but I enjoyed having a shot and I'm quite pleased with the end result. We really like these Miss Anya stamps but we don't have any yet so our lovely bloggy friend Helen sent my daughter, Suzanne, some stamped images and Suzanne gave me a couple. I'm a bit like a wee squirrel for hoarding so I've been hiding them away for a special occasion and none better than this since Helen, clever girl that she is, has been chosen for the design team for the new Promarker challenge blog. Suzanne and I are so proud of her. You can see Helen's work here. Do give her a visit - her work is ab. fab.

I used Basic Grey Sultry papers and Sweet Pea Sprout Cardstock
Plain white cardstock for mounting
Apple, Limegreen
Coral, Spice
Blossom, Pastel Pink, Blush Pink, Ivory
Gems are Kanban
Lace from Hobbycraft
Tools: Cuttlebug and Oval Nesties
Fiskars Punch


I haven't put a sentiment on yet because I might keep it for my friend, Teresa's birthday, so I'll personalise it. She's a real shopaholic so it will suit her nicely.

I quite liked the lace until our Jack asked me if it was knicker elastic!!!

Thanks for looking.

Oh my Lynne this is gorguss love your colours and the image you have done fantastic with the colouring. Love the hair I like to do that with my images I have streakes like that in my hair. Can't you remember ever wearing shoes with high heels lol. I used to love wearing them mind you I am only 5'3" so any extra height was good lol.
