I ♥ PROMARKERS BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP

Happy birthday to us, happy birthday to us, happy birthday dear......ha, ha, you know the rest.
Yep! The I ♥ PROMARKERS challenge blog is one year old and so we're having a blog hop to celebrate. Our theme is BIRTHDAY, so lets see your birthday cards, but remember...you MUST use Promarkers on your project.

There is a fantastic prize on offer for the winner, plus, every member of the Design Team is also offering a prize to somebody that comments on their blogs.We are sponsored this week by WHIFF OF JOY AND LETRASET.

Whiff of Joy are offering up these two gorgeous stamps:



and LETRASET are offering:



Added to that, our lovely Karen is also adding some of her gorgeous pins.


Here is what I'm offering to one person who comments on my blog:


You're going to love the diamanté ribbon sliders. They're good quality metal ones and twinkle beautifully.

and here's the order for the blog hop:
Karen
Kate
Julie
Lorraine (me)
Wynneth
Ruth
Tine
Kathleen

So, if you landed here first, go to Karen's and follow the order from there.
Then go back and add your card to the challenge blog. You must take part in the challenge to be eligible to win.

This is my card for our celebration. I know these images from Sugar Nellie are all over the internet at the moment, but I just had to use her. Shame I screwed up her face and hair, lol.


Now, I hate using my scrapbooking papers for cards, in fact, I never do, but I made an exception this week and I cut up my gorgeous Ella Blue papers. A Marianne doily die is behind Verity and the roses, (inked with walnut stain distress ink) are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I used a Martha Stewart border punch, a sentiment of my own design and the lace heart was in my stash.

Entering into the following challenges:
SPOONFUL OF SUGAR - Show some love (my heart)
CRAFT YOUR PASSION -Anything goes
ONE STITCH AT A TIME - Use a digi.
STAMP SOMETHING - Digi day
PAPERTAKE WEEKLY - Have a heart.
