I Must Be Crackers

Well it's December 22nd and here in the Midlands it's snowing again, fun for the children but on a personal level it's not so great we had planned to to stay and celebrate Christmas in Yorkshire with our family but this now looks as though it isn't going to happen the council have not done a brilliant job of keeping the main roads clear I believe the motor ways are not so bad but it's getting to them that is the problem, and then of course we have to think about making our way back, whatever the out come we intend to enjoy ourselves and if crunch comes to crunch and we can't join the family at this festive time we know we will get to see them sometime soon.

This Cracker is my DT project for I Love Promarkers and the theme for this week is Anything Goes and our sponsor for this challenge is Digi Doodle Shop.

I made a few of these crackers and I've used a template given by Clare the designer of the cute Molly Blooms stamps, if you want to have a go at making a similar cracker the link to the template is here  I've used a Digi Doodle image which I've coloured with Promarkers.

Thank you for stopping by wishing you all a very happy Christmas

Lovely Santa

The challenge this week at I ♥ Promarkers is Santa and there is a lovely prize for the winner from Simon Says Stamp.  For this card I chose to use two digital stamps the Christmas Tree's are from Pink Petticoat and the delightful Santa is a Polly Craft design. I've kept the card simple using only white embossed card and coloured the images with Promarkers.

Rainy days

Christmas is nearly here and we are so looking forward to spending quality time with our family back in Yorkshire.  I've still one or two presents to buy and then we can sit back a relax, the only thing that could spoil things is if it snows and stops travel so keeping my fingers crossed for trouble free travel.

The image I've chosen for this card is from Penny Black I just loved the detail.  I have to admit it's the only Penny Black stamp in my collection but I have plans to rectify that in the New Year  he he he.
I've chosen to use the sketch over at Pink Gems and coloured the image with Promarkers, the papers are from the Gossamer collection  which are beautiful, although as is the norm the camera always distorts the true colours. flowers and silk ribbon complete the card.  The challenge over at Penny Black is Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and to me this stamp is one of my absolute favourites and beautiful to boot.

Christmas Song

This cold snap is becoming uncomfortable the landscape is beautiful but the central heating is struggling to keep the house comfortable and one thing I hate is being cold.  Only a couple of years ago in November we were in the garden with just our Tshirts on which felt quite unreal, so in one respect despite the chill factor it's nice to have the seasonal weather back to where it should be.

This is my DT card for I ♥ Promarkers and the theme this week is A Christmas Song/Carol which is being sponsored by Letraset.  The Christmas song I've chosen is called 'Christmas Time Is Here' it's the most exciting time of year for children and the verse and image by Mo Manning appealed to me.
I've coloured the image Promarkers and used a MS punch for the edges with a music sheet to back the image.

Hope you like and thank you for stopping by
