Catching up

Ok, I'm officially completely confused - can't get photos to list in any particular order and getting very frustrated.  I'm sure it's just me lol.  I'm also being a rubbish blogger this week, and even though I've made loads of cards I've not got round to blogging them.  It's the heat I think, it makes me lazy.... it's been sooo hot today and it's supposed to be even hotter tomorrow.  Anyway, I thought I'd add some of the cards I've made this week.

The first cards are all for an order - they're teacher thank you cards and are very similar to some I've made before (as requested by my customer).  I've used a cute little girl image from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers.  The papers are from the Pink Petticoat gingham download, printed onto linen card.  Mounted the images on little doilies from Joanna Sheen and added computer generated sentiments.  Simple :o)

This one is my hubby's Father's Day card from the boys, that I forgot to put on my blog before Father's Day - I followed the sketch at Delightful Sketches and missed entering the challenge there too, oops!  The image is another cutie from Digistamp Boutique, again coloured with promarkers.  The papers are Cosmo Cricket with red cardstock from my stash and a freebie sentiment from The Creative Cottage.  Added some Papermania sticky dot thingies (can't remember their real name lol), they're actually bright red and yellow but the colours aren't showing up well.  The spotty ribbon is one that my 7yr old son insisted we HAD to buy the last time he was in a craft shop with me... well how could I refuse?

Promarkers colours used:
  • Monkeys - vanilla, tan, coral (cheeks), sunkissed pink (ears)
  • Tops - sunflower yellow, tea green + soft green
  • Present - tulip yellow, sunflower yellow, gold, poppy, shale
  • Outline - cool aqua + blender
  • Ground - cool grey 1, 2 + 4 & blender
I'm entering my cards for the following challenges:
