I have used a FF image, coloured with my new pro markers, sakura glaze pens and not forgetting some stickles for that added bit of bling!! I have only got 2 brown pro markers so it may look a bit odd :) the pp are SU dashing designer series, I did have a hot sweat on when I cut these up because I love them so much :) the red card is from my stash, I have punched the tag with my new SU round tag punch and added the sentiment from papertrey, I have attached that with a brad.
Hope you are all keeping warm, have a good night xx

The challenge is "make a pink card and send it to someone who could do with a little tender loving care."
So here is mine, I have had to wait until now because I wanted to use my new promarkers (I need more of these already :). I have used my new tilda stamp and the rest is from my stash.

I can not believe where the time is going at the moment. The Dirty Dancing tribute night was good fun, we did have to wait around a while, which was the only downside but that was because we arrived to early, they told us 7pm but there were still people turning up at 8pm, and then the act didnt come on until 9.30pm. If you do ever get a chance to go, it is worth it and if you get the same Johnny as we had, well lets just say he was very nice indeed :)
Anyway Dave is back at work tomorrow so I may get some crafting done at last, and I will hopefully get round to you all too at some point
Enjoy what is left of your weekend xxx

Yesterday I had another lovely day, Dave has had 3 days off and it is the first holiday that has not been spend doing the house so we have made the most of it, we did some shopping yesterday and had a pub lunch, last night I had a play with my new toys (I am now adicted to promarkers :) and made a little note book from my new Bind it all, I must say it is very easy to use, the covers were made from some packaging from my new promarkers, and the papers were scraps.
Now for the Dirty Dancing reference, we are off to a Dirty Dancing tribute night tonight, I have no idea what will happen but we get a meal, the tribute and then a disco :) hopefully I won't be in a corner !!!!!
Anyway I will be off now, hope you all have a fab weekend and lets hope the weather stays nice for us :)

The second card is from Lulu, this is another beautiful card, the picture does not do it justice, thank you lulu :) xx

Ok... now here is the reason I have not made any cards in the last few days. The fabulous lovely Linda lent me some prisma's...now let me tell you, I thought I would get a few to play with not the whole lot, I am so grateful "Thank you Linda xxx"
Anyhooo, I have been having a play and I must admit, and I say this with a sad heart, I can not get the hang of them AAGGGHHHHH :( Linda also leant me a paper stump and blending fluid. I hate not being able to do it, I am just getting in such a mess with the fluid (messy pup that I am). I have looked at a few tutorials and they make it look so easy, so I will persevere for a while and see if I can get the hang of them but don't hold your breath :)
Thank you again Linda xx

"Here is what I would like you to do.. if you have time can you make a pink card and send it to someone who could do with a little tender loving care."
The finishing date is 30th October so you have plenty of time, I have not made one yet but just wanted to let you all know so you could all get your cards in. If you do go over to Sue's just make sure you stop off and look at her gorgeous cards too,
