Passion For Promarkers - tie a yellow ribbon...

Our theme for this week at Passion For Promarkers is 'tie a yellow ribbon...'.  Have you got the song stuck in your head now lol?  We're sponsored by Joanna Sheen, and our lucky winner will receive a £10 voucher to spend in Joanna's fab online shop :o)



I've used one of my fabby new 'sherbet pip' Sugar Nellie stamps.  They're brilliant at Funky Kits - I only ordered my stamps on Friday and they arrived Saturday morning, I like not having to wait!  Isn't this little girlie just so cute?!

I've coloured her with promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  We were lucky enough at PFP to receive some samples of the new promarker fine nibs from Letraset, and I've played with them for the first time on the hair... I still need to practice LOTS but I think the nibs will make things like hair and grass detail so much easier.  I ordered more of them as soon as they appeared on the Letraset site yesterday anyway lol.  Papers are MME 'ooh la la for him', flowers cut with a MFT die, pearls and ribbon from my stash and a computer generated sentiment.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
I'm having huge problems with my laptop at the moment.  It keeps switching itself off and doesn't seem to be charging properly, so I think it probably needs a new battery.  Hopefully it'll last (in between driving me mad shutting down constantly!) at least until we can get it sorted, but if I happen to disappear at some point it's probably because I can't get the bloomin' thing to switch back on!

She's lovely Lisa and yep now I'm humming that song. I guess the nibs are for one pen only so you have to buy the same number of pens you have ?

I'm a bit jealous of you having new stamps and the fine nibs for your promarkers!

As always you've done a brilliant job with your card. I really like the paper and the colours you've used.
