Passion for Promarkers and another Gray

Don't shout too loud, but the sun's shining this morning, first time since Saturday in these parts, mind you the wind is oh so cold. The horses are non to impressed either and think it's time to move indoors full time for another winter of pampering. Do you know, if us humans spent a whole season doing little more than eating and drinking apart from the odd hack out, we would take on the appearance of sumo wrestlers.......so what's so special about a horses metabolism that they don't have the same problem ?

After all the activity of the weekend, buckling down to crafting is tough.......think Jules and I talked so much that out energy levels needed to replenish, but it was a fabulous day.......and a little secret, we have another one planned for the NEC. I have never been there before, so going on a strict regime of no spending until then - as if.

On to my card, Passions for Promarkers this week wants to see 'Polka Dots with an open colour combo'.......gives those of us lucky enough to have the new colours the chance to try them out.......one major nightmare here though, guess what I discovered...... there is another gray - gray green. I am also combining this card with the recipe from the Creative Card Crew which is '2 DP's, 3 flowers, 2 brads, 1 button and 1 ribbon'.

My image is from Stampevia WDS410, coloured with a mixture of Promarkers including Tulip Yellow, Pear Green, Salmon Pink, Antique Pink and Gray Green - all new colours, along with a few of the originals. I stamped and coloured the flower three more times and glittered the centre. The DP's are My Mids Eye, the border punched with Martha Stewart Doily Lace and the leaves are also punched. I cut down one of the flowers and reassembled in the top corner as I felt it was too large. The circle greeting is Hero Arts A4981 and finally a button , ribbon and two brads - centres of two of the small flowers on my image. Considering I don't do cute too often I actually quite like this one.

Hi Brenda

Love it when you post a card in time for me to see it during my lunch break - very considerate of you!!

I love this one. A real super-cute image. Are they all new proMarker colours?

I am so, so pleased to hear that there was a new grey in your latest delivery - there was definitely a gap in the market for another!! LOL!!

Can't wait for the NEC - but am not going to start counting how many "beds" or "sleeps" it is yet.

Beware though!!! If I sapped your energy on Sunday just wait until you experience a full day of me .. .. I wear everyone out eventually!

Laters ..

Love Jules xx

Beautiful card, love how you used the flowers as embellishments too. Great colouring as usual. You'd better be careful of that Jules one lol.
