Passion For Promarkers - swirls & sparkles

Our challenge for this week at Passion For Promarkers is 'swirls and sparkles', chosen by the lovely Michele.  You'll notice that I'm the only one on the DT who hasn't been sensible and used this challenge to add to the Christmas card pile - I seem to remember that last year I was finishing off my card for mum and her hubby just before we set off to their house on Christmas Day lol... no doubt I'll be the same this year!  We're sponsored by Letraset who are providing one of their fab promarker stamping kits for our lucky winner :o)

I've used one of the adorable Fairy Hattie images, which are one of the 'offer of the month' sets at DigiStamp Boutique.  I've coloured her with promarkers, flexmarkers and koh-i-noor pencils, and added lots of glamour dust - I might have gone slightly overboard, she's even got sparkly shoes :o)  The papers are First Edition, dark brown cardstock is from Papermill Direct, sentiment is CC Designs and the heart pearls from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

The tooth saga continues and I've still not been brave enough to go near a dentists.  I think my tolerance for pain is too high, and I'm actually getting used to it lol... Morgan went to a party yesterday at Laser Quest and as Dex was too little to go in, I took him upstairs to the soft play centre so he could play while we waited for Morgan.  While we were there, part of the offending tooth actually broke and when we got home I yanked the broken piece out myself... even I know that's not normal!

I'm with you on the dentist thing. A piece of one of my teeth broke off, leaving a sharp bit and I filed it with a nail file myself... Erm, ahem!

Anyway, I love this card. The soft colours are perfect for the sweet image.

Thanks also for playing at Sketch Saturday this week. xxx

Vicky said...

Lol at yr broken tooth hun, I know its not funny but its sooooo good to know I'm not the only one who does silly things like that lol. I broke my ankle a couple of years ago its was really bad but cus I laugh when I've hurt myself they wouldnt give me any pain relief even when they were straightening it lol.......I wasn't bothered tho infact I went through 5 casts cus I would rest it & still climbed up ladders etc lmao.
Anyhoo your card is bleeding gorgeous hunni. Sorry for the babble lol.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

Feebsy said...

Oh my this is just so cute, I really like the colour combination and the image is darling. You've coloured it so beautifully as always.

I can't believe you pulled out part of your tooth! If you live anywhere near Hackenthorpe you could try Andy Cadman on Main Street he's really, really good. When I recently had to have a massively infected tooth taken out I never felt a thing and he's such a nice guy he'll put you at ease I promise.


Digi Stamp Boutique said...

Super cute card Lisa, I need to keep on with those Christmas cards too!
Ouch you must be anti-dentist to do that yourself!
Hubbie went to dentists today to have root canal work to be told at last minute he didn't need it doing because it had already been done!!!! Bit slack I think...... Sorry not trying to put you off :(

Totally gorgeous Lisa! Love how you've coloured Hattie and the sentiment is just perfect.

I used to be like you with the dentist but now I'm there every six months without fail as I'm terrified of ever needing false ones!

Unknown said...

Hi Lisa, what a wonderful card. Love the image, layout and the papers (my new love First Edition!).

Been there done that, with regards to the dentist. I left going for so long, that I was pulling bits of tooth out as it crumbled away! Strange thing is, it never hurt - it was only when I was forced to the dentist that they made it hurt! It seemed at one point every time I went to the dentist I was getting a filling (if I open my mouth, I gleam I've got so many fillings!), one of the reasons I stopped going for so long!

In all honesty tho, the last two years I've been - no probs and I'm outta there like a shot!
