Sorry I'm late with my Promarker post, but it's been an awful week. On Monday I had to have my beloved German Shepherd, Bailey put to sleep. Age and illness had set in and I knew it was time. I miss him more than I can say. I hate getting up in the mornings at the moment with him not being there to lick me good morning and bed time is particularly lonely as he slept with me every night.  Here's a couple of pics of my gorgeous boy.  Sleep well my precious. xxx

So, the theme at I ♥ PROMARKERS this week (#190)  is Snowflakes and the sponsor is STAMPFAIRY.
I used one of my fave Tilda images for this.  I really don't like making Christmas cards, but sometimes..needs must eh?  I cut the snowflakes on my cameo and they've got glitter on them as has Tilda's fur trims, but I couldn't get a decent pic of it.  I used Cheery Lynn's Large Sunflower die, cut it in half and swapped the sides and the embossing folder for the background is by Crafts Too.

Particularly love that pic of Bailey in the snow, I thought that was what you were referring too when you had Snowflake above him, refering to how unique he was. Miss him loads, such a special fella. Hope you are bearing up kid, you know where we are if you want someone to reminisce with, x. Love you x

Lorraine your card is beautiful that is one of my most favourite Magnolia images it took me awhile to save some money to buy it and I love it, you have coloured and designed this creation to perfection. Take care
