Week 19 - “Apricot and Cool Aqua + Flower”

Its week 19 at Passion for ProMarkers, how on earth did that happen :) This week our challenge was set by our guest Sam and is “Apricot and Cool Aqua + Flowers” it is such a pretty colour combo and I think my favourite so far, the DT have really gone all out and done some fabulous cards so please go and visit

Our sponsor this week is Craft Obsessions and the lucky winner will receive a martha stewart cosmos punch worth £10.50.  Also we thought you might like to know that craft obsessions currently has a special offer on ProMarkers at £1.50 each, but only for a limited time, so why not check out their online shop for details.

Onto my card, I have used DCWV papers and my retro punches and SU punch, the image is a gorjuss girl coloured with the following ProMarkers -

  • Skin – Vanilla & Pastel Pink
  • Hair – Tan, Caramel & Cocoa
  • Dress & Socks – Cool Aqua & Duck egg
  • Hair Band & Socks – Apricot & Honeycomb
  • Shadow – Warm Grey 1

Well I did not do what I had hoped over the weekend, I left no comments at all, we had some radiators fitted through the week and spent the weekend cleaning up all of the mess, so once again I apologise :)

Secret Crafter Saturday challenge DT card

I nearly didn’t  make it with this card today, at one point I thought I should just go back to bed :). Firstly because I had a week and half off from cardmaking I completely forgot I had to make a card for SCSC (slapped hand), then once I had decided what to do, I must have had at least half a dozen phone calls to put me off, then after I made the card I could not find my bluetooth to upload it off my phone, and finally my back started aching, but hey ho I got there in the end :)

Now for my challenge card for SCSC which was set by yours truely and is “teenage boy” a card none of us like but all of us need, please visit the rest of the DT they have done so well with my challenge. So here is my card :)


The image is from Sugar Nellie and coloured with some old and some new Woohoooo ProMarkers, all the new PM’s are now in stock at Secret crafter and even better Wendy is now doing free p&p, so now there is no excuse :). All of the papers and stars are from a kit I bought from SU.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend and thank you for visiting :)

p.s Don’t forget Passion for ProMarkers “blog hop” starting tomorrow (Sunday at 10am)

New ProMarkers and Upcoming Blog hop

As you all know by now I run Passion for ProMarkers with Denise and a very special DT, next week is the Launch of 56 PM’s and we have a blog hop starting on Sunday at 10am to celebrate, the prize is amazing and is a secret until Sunday so please pop over and take a look, you don’t need any PM’s to join in :)

We were all very lucky to have the New ProMarkers early from Letraset so I want to thank Simon for helping us out with a great deal and getting them to us before anyone else Woohoooooo. These are why I spent 40 minutes in the post office yesterday and why the DT is so giddy today, poor Dave had to help me because I could not carry them, even he struggled, we were both aching horrible by the end of it :)


Look at all those lovely new colours :)


So don’t forget Sunday at 10am the blog hop will start :)
