    DT card for challenge #356 Monochrome (shades of one colour)

    This week’s theme is April Monochrome (shades of one colour)
    Our sponsor is  Little Miss Muffet



    The Prize for the lucky winner is
    prize is $6 voucher
     
    Here is my card for the challenge
     
  • I have used the cute image Polka-Dot-Pals-Petunia by Little miss muffet stamps
  •  My trustee promarkers
  •  A few dies
  •  A few scrapbook papers from my stash as I am desperately trying to get them used up - I opened a cupboard in my craft room last week & found I had hidden about 30 paper pads which I had forgotten about as well as all my loose papers (whoops)

  • Now I am even more determined to reduce my hoard as I have so many wooden stamps just sitting in stacked up veg trays unused & too many clear stamps it's taking over - my husband has threatened to get a skip in when I pop my clogs so I have decided to destash anything I really no longer need so I can spend the money wisely on more crafts before I go (plus they really have no idea of the true value of crafting goodies)

    DT card #351 for I Love Promarkers challenge blog

    Well I have really struggled this week to get my act together, we have had a death in the family so have been trying to help my Mother in law sort everything out & we have the funeral on Thursday.  I have also had a really bad stomach bug which has seen me out of action at the weekend so had a rush last night getting the card together

    This week’s theme is Embossing
    Our sponsor is   Bugaboo Stamps

    The Prize for the lucky winner is
    2 Digi Images
     
    My card for the challenge, I really must sort out the lighting as everything looks dark
     
     
    I love this image by Bugaboo stamps called Izzy brat & Charlie
    She was coloured in using my trustee promarkers
    All the dies are unbranded & was lucky to have had the lamppost & fence delivered the day before I made the card
    The embossing folder is so well used the name has come off it
