I am so pleased with how this one has turned out I was a bit worried as I coloured the image in then thought ahhhh what am I going to use to make the card. After having a rummage through my stash of crafty bits I found all these tiny buttons, Pretty flowers, Brads and ribbon that matched the image perfectly. I have used the sketch from Sketch Saturday and the Manga theme from Secret Crafter.
What better friend does anyone have then a trusty dog I know my two are always there for me when I need them so when I saw this weeks challenge of Best Friends from Passion For Promarkers I went straight to this image. I have coloured it with various coloured promarkers and my blender pen to give a softer look. I have also used the distressed theme from Aly's Sunday Challenge. The brown spotty paper has a distressed look to it as it looks as though it has been sanded to take off some of the colour. I then used a brown ink pad to distress the edge of the ribbon and the image. I kept the colours and image male orientated so that I could also use it for this weeks Cards for Men challenge of Anything Goes. The ribbon reads Laughter is the closest distance between two friends.

Well I had never really thought of Pink and White as Christmasy colours but when I started making this card I was really pleased with the outcome. I coloured the little girl with various pinks and my trusty blender pen. I think I would be lost without my blender pen now. Then I thought I would keep the card simple with a few pearls and a snowflake I punched from glitter card and layered up.
I am starting to get into the vintage theme. This is my second Vintage themed card and I really enjoyed making it. I have used the sketch from Cute Card Thursday, The Vintage theme from Charisma Cardz and the Brown and Blue colour scheme from Aifactory.
This little one took me a while. I had all the papers on the floor and had coloured the image with my Promarkers but for some reason it didnt look right. But after some tweeking I am quite happy with it. I used the Purple, Aqua and White colour theme from Colour Create and the sketch from Crafters Companion. I made the little flowers using the same colour papers as the background and finished it off with some white ribbon.

Well here is my fourth and final card from yesterday. I have used the cute pumpkin image from 2 Cute Rubber Stamps. This image is lovely and works perfectly with promarkers. I also used the Boo-halloween theme from A Spoonful Of Sugar. I found some Halloween coloured papers in my craft stash which worked well with the image and some brown ribbon and little autumn leaves finished the card. The sketch is from Inspirational Card Sketches. I love this sketch it is very simple so shows off the image really well.
Card number three and I love this little cutey perfect for a new baby boy or girl. I have used the Baby theme with an option of Gingham and Ribbon from Just Cute Bears. I also used the bingo board from Allsorts and chose the Punch, Tags and Ribbon line.

I loved this challenge from Crafty Cardmakers as it made me venture into my paper box and actually use some of the free papers I had in there. I'm not sure which magazine they are from but it was a pullout with papers and element sheets. I have also used a Precious Moments image which is a free colouring page from the internet.there are loads of them and they look lovely when coloured with Promarkers.
This is one of my latest challenge cards and its quite a bit different from my usual cards but in this case I think different is good. I have used the sketch from Sketch Saturday, the whats buggin you theme from Cute Card Thursday, the More than one fold theme from Charisma Cards and the Fancy folds theme from Crafty Cardmakers.

I used two themes for this card the first being Winter Wonderland and the second being Inspiration from a song. The song choice is Let it Snow by Dean Martin and I think the image really suits a Winter Wonderland theme. I used the lovely sketch from Quirky Craft as the image was quite big this sketch worked perfectly.

I have used the lovely sketch from sketch Saturday for this card. I also used the recycled theme from Passion For Promarkers for which I recycled some buttons off an old shirt. The little bear is coloured with Sandstone, Caramel and Satin Promarkers. His little bow is coloured with a Duck egg colour Promarker which matched the backing paper perfectly.
