It's Wednesday!

Hi blogworld,

The world seems a little better at keeping itself on track this week - at least I know today (well tomorrow really as I'm typing this on Tuesday scheduled for Wednesday - are you confused, I am!) is Wednesday and it's time for a new challenge over at Divas by Design.

The theme for this challenge is 'Fabulous Flourishes' so we would like to see your flourishes or swirls on your creations this week please.

This week's sponsor is The Paper Shelter with a fab prize on offer - why not pop over the blog, have a look at my Teamies wonderfully inspiring cards and then join us in the fun!

The Design Team were given a choice of digis to play with and this is what I created with my choice. Lots of photo's here, peeps, as it's an easel card and I think we all know what a terror they are to take a picture of!

Here we go:

Arty farty side view:

I used:

The Paper Shelter - Retro Space Girl, coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers

First Edition - Isabelle

Memory Box - La Rue Flourish

Everything else:
Large pink flower - Wild Orchid Crafts
Card Candy and sentiments - Craftwork cards
smaller flowers and lace from my stuff
Stickles glitter glue

So that's it from me today - hope you to see you over at the Divas.


A challenge, or two:

I love Promarkers: Challenge #118 - Use die-cuts.  That would be the Memory Box flourishes.

The Cutie Pie Challenge Blog: Easel card with sketch

Passion for Promarkers: Week 150 - Birthdays.  Happy birthday to you ladies, it's a fab challenge and where I got a lot of inspiration from when I first started using Promarkers!

The Paper Shelter: Challenge #65 - Bling it on.  I'm not sure if I'm being cheeky entering this one!  There are stickles on her helmet and the paper is very sparkly in real life, but I don't know if that is enough 'bling' for you!  If it's not I've no problems with my entry being taken out.
