Challenge #21 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS this week is to use stripes on your project. Our sponsor this week is the fabulous LETRASET and the prize is a pack of 5 Promarkers.

I looked through all my striped paper and then decided to make my own. Using my metal edged ruler and both ends of my PM's I just drew random stripes in the colours I'd used for my image and then ran that bit through the Cuttlebug. The red block is 'self striped' just using the same colour pen. The terrific Pinocchio is from Mo at DIGITAL PENCIL TOO.

Ooooh, a little update....there will be a surprise prize, courtesy of Karen (our esteemed leader) added to the set of Promarkers.

Well, I've found myself yet another side of crafting. Something I never thought I'd do or be able to do. The beauty of it is that I can spend hours on my computer and have something at the end of it. :D

I've started designing papers and decoupage, although I don't do decoupage myself. Take a look HERE and see what you think. There's some lovely stuff on this site if you like downloads.

I watched the crappy football match today. Now I know why football doesn't float my boat, lol. Disgraceful performance and that goal decision was a joke. Oh well, better luck next time, lads.

Before I give you the challenge details, I just want to have a little brag. My plate card made the top 5 passionista at Passion for Promarkers challenge blog. :o)

This week over on the I ♥ PROMARKERS challenge blog, there's a super sketch to follow. Our lovely sponsor this week is LILAC LEMON DESIGNS and she has some gorgeous stamps, including the one I used on my card which is from the Art Deco set. The prize this week is two rubber stamps - a floral one and an aeroplane. Click on the I ♥ Promarker link to see them.
The Paper I used is K & Co from the pad 'Tapestry'. It is one of the foiled sheets from the pad, as shown in the second photo.

Editing: It's 11th May 2011 today but I'm linking this post to MAKE IT MONDAY. I really like this card so am showing it again.

I had a go at something a little different this afternoon and made a plate card. I think I'll be making more of these as I love the way it sits on its stand and you can pop your written greeting on the back. I raided my scrap box for my papers again as there is so much in there. The pink paper is Basic Grey but where the brown came from is anybody's guess, lol. I wanted it to look a bit distressed so the BG paper was perfect and I inked all the edges with Black Soot distress ink. The image is by Elizabeth Dulemba who is a children's book author and illustrator and the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I'm entering this card for 4 challenges this week.

PASSION FOR PROMARKERS whose theme is books.
MY TIME TO CRAFT are asking for Wild Things - something that lives in the wild and I figure an Owl fits the bill.
PEAR TREE DESIGNS who want flowers on your card/project.
CRAFTS AND ME who want distressing.


This week the I ♥ PROMARKERS challenge is a recipe. We ask you to use 3 buttons, 2 papers and 1 ribbon. Our sponsor this week again is the lovely JOANNA SHEEN and she is offering the winner a £10 voucher to spend in her online store.

My card uses papers from K & Co. 'Blue Awning' and the image is from Lilac Lemon designs.
