Another Wednesday and time for another  I ♥ PROMARKERS  challenge.  This week it's #183 and the  challenge is to use a number. We have two great sponsors and they are STITCHY BEAR DIGITAL STAMPS and HOBBYCUTZ.  The DT have used Stitchy images and I chose to use this lovely lad, 'Blockhead'.  Don't you just love that name, lol.

My papers are from the Crate Paper 'Toybox' pad.   I used my new Winter collection of Promarkers to colour this in, I love that 'Red Sweater' colour.  The corner die is a Joanna Sheen Britannia die, the punched border is EK Success and I stamped the greeting.  I hadn't originally planned on cutting the boy out, but I tried one of those dotty backgrounds and cocked it up, lol.  He was cut out above his trousers and then mounted onto paper to look like wallpaper.

Entering into:
OSAAT #178 - Anything goes with a Stitchy Digi. WINNER
CRAFTY CREATIONS #237 - Use a number.
BEARLY MINE #101 - Use a digi image and/or papers.
POLLYCRAFT #6 - For the kids.
DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY #74 - Anything goes.
LADY ANNE'S #11 - Anything goes.
PARTY TIME TUESDAYS #135 - Anything goes.
MAKE IT MONDAY #155 - Anything goes. POTW - Sandy

Wow Lorraine - your colouring is just perfect. I agree with you - that is a delicious sweater colour. Thanks for stopping by my blog today as well - I giggled a bit when I read the word "pooter" - in my circle it's a slang for something else....I know what you meant though. It was just funny when you thought about having good luck with the other "meaning"! You made my evening - thanks for the nice comment and the giggles.

Hi Lorraine, thankyou for visiting and leaving such a nice comment. I've not been a bit slack with visiting my friends of late! I'm glad I popped over though as your last few posts are gorgeous, so beautifully coloured and embellished. I'm sorry to hear how much you're missing your family, but as you say they'll be back in the UK for good next year and the way the time goes it won't seem so long! Total emersion in crafting is always a good remedy for the blues. Have fun Toni x
