I can't believe that it has been such a long time since I played along to some of the wicked weekly challenges, that are posted online on a regular basis.

Yeah, of course I don't fail to join the {{ Gutter Girlz }} on the 15th of each month but I used to be a regular participator on {{ Cuttlebug Challenges }}, {{ Caardvarks }} and {{ 2 Sketches 4 You }}. What the heck has happened??

Guess life got in the way and with my day to day job becoming more demanding, the little spare time left was just spent with my other half rather than crafting (ya, silly - I know...*giggles*). But hopefully this will all change now while I have adjusted to my new free-time-schedule.

So, this week I dug out some more of my digi stamps from {{ Some Odd Girl }} and  created a card to enter into the recent {{ 2S4Y }} challenge.

Cardstock: Bazzill; Stampin' Up; Papermill; Frances Meyer
Papers: American Crafts; Teresa Collins
Stamps: Some Odd Girl - Hippity Bunny; EK Success Rolling Alpha Stamp
Other: Pearls - Papercellar; Embroidery Floss; Ink; Glitter Glue
Tools: Border Punch - Woodware

But I didn't stop there - oh no. By sheer accident I came across the wonderful {{ I Love Promarkers }} challenge blog and decided that I really need to get more practice with the Promarkers I own.

First off I downloaded the {{ March Freebie }} from {{ Some Odd Girl }} - his name is Spike and I love him dearly. He looks so sheepish, I just figured him at having done something, this card pretty much says it all:

Cardstock: Bazzill; Frances Meyer
Papers: Collage Press
Stamps: Some Odd Girl - Spike; my StampBOX - Summer Alpha
Promarkers: Lilac, Amethyst, Ivory, Dusky Pink, Warm Grey 2, Cool Grey 5

I think I am getting the hang of these markers now, and when creating this card I learned to NOT use heavily textured cardstock, as it really buggers up the even colouring of larger areas...


  1. that card is too cute.... love the bunnies.

  2. This is lovely and it made me smile. Love the shape you've used too, thanks for joining us at I ♥ ProMarkers and we hope to see you again soon.

  3. A fab shape and card, love the colours. That look on Spikes face makes me think of my son this morning when he knocked a big box of stuff down the stairs, then blamed the cat!
