Rush, rush!

Hello me bloggy friends

Well another successful mission - small child happily off to first full day at 'big school' and one mummy off home without any tears!

Got to go rush, rush, rush, as have runner beans to trim, blanch and freeze; shopping to get and child to collect from school.

However really wanted to join in again with Passion for Promarkers and have made an anniversary card for tomorrow - its me and hubby's anniversary - I know Passion closes later today and wanted to post before it closes.  Also saw Sketch Saturdays sketch this week and it's great - so three birds with one stone.

Onto card:
Normal view:

Detail shot of colouring:

After my moaning about not using the Promarkers - I made the effort to get them out yesterday (while it howled down with rain!) and try to colour something in carefully!  Not too upset with the results - even let Emily have a go at colouring - hmmm, did you know little girls in pictures really love stripy dresses!  That's what I was told when I queried darling daughters colouring!

So I used:

Lili of the Valley - Together Forever, coloured with me Promarkers.
Sentiment is another Lili of the Valley but it came from a different stamp set.
Both die-cut with nesties, the sentiment was inked with a Distress Ink pad before I took it out of the nestie.
Craftwork Cards card blank and Card Candy.
Papers were free with a mag - someone has told me what there are, but I can't remember - so unknown papers!

I keep looking at my cards and thinking my style is changing.  I have loads of flowers and embellies, and hardly use any of them, I seem to be doing much less cluttered cards at the mo.  Wonder if that will change back when I have more time to faff over a card!

Best wishes to all and hope everyone is well.  Off now to trim and blanch!
