Passion For Promarkers - white on white

Before I get onto my cards, I need to say a big thank you for all your comments on our house disappointment - you're all so lovely!  I'm feeling ok about it really, it obviously just wasn't meant to be and fingers crossed we'll find something perfect next year.

So onto this week's challenge at Passion For Promarkers... it was Debs' turn to choose the theme and she chose 'WOW' or white on white.  We're sponsored by DigiStamp Boutique and our lucky winner will receive 6 digi images of their choice :o)  Oh and just a quick mention - we're having a mini DT call at PFP so if you're interested pop over and leave us a link to your blog.





Sorry there are so many photos, but in a moment of madness I decided to make a set of six 5" square cards - I'm very irritated because I faffed around stamping snowflakes all over the base cards in versamark and then adding cosmic shimmer, and they're very shimmery and twinkly in real life... but I just couldn't get the blinking things to show up in the photos!  So my cards aren't as boring as they look here, honest!

I've used one of the new 'offer of the month' sets from DigiStamp Boutique, the Cute Santa Collection, which comes as individual images and also as a handy A4 sheet with all the images ready to print.  I used the A4 sheet and accidentally sent it to print from the rear of my printer where I keep linen card ready to print, so my images printed on a sheet of linen.  I decided to have a go with them anyway and ended up really enjoying colouring on linen, as you can probably tell by the fact that I coloured all six!  I'll definitely be trying this again, because I quite like how the shading looks too :o)  I added some glamour dust and an Elzybells sentiment.

I'm entering my cards for the following challenges:


Aww cute news - they're doing a nativity play at Dex's nursery, and he's going to be a shepherd - bless!!!  I wasn't expecting them to do anything as they're all so little.  Oh dear, I'm so going to cry though, how embarrassing will that be?!

Hi Lisa, what a gorgeous set of cards. I might well be heading off to shop very soon! I've not started my Christmas cards yet, am just not in the Christmassy mood.

The nativity play sounds sweet, Emily did her first one with her nursery last year and I cried, as did all the other mums! Can't believe this year she's doing one with school - this year has just flown by!!
This time I'm going to try not to drive the car into a ditch again, so that she can be there to take part when they video the play and I'll have some record of it as school don't allow you to take pics or video!

Gorgeous cards Lisa, not boring at all. I love white on white cards and these are stunning.

I'm sure Dex will be a cute shepherd and no-one will mind if you cry lol! Will he have a costume? When my kids were in the nativity plays at church shepherds used to wear two towels and a belt plus a teatowel on their head and a snake belt!!

These are really sweet!! I love the images, of course, and don't they look great printed on linen?! I know what you mean about photographing glittery bits... they just don't, do they? I can see the snowflakes though, now I know where to look :-) Very nice. Re the Nativity; of course you're going to cry, that as a Mum is your job!! TFS, Donna
