Passion For Promarkers - mega Christmas challenge

As you might know, at Passion For Promarkers there are 2 teams, doing 6 months of challenges each... Team 1 will be taking over soon, so today is my last card for PFP for a whole 6 months!  We have a special challenge with loads of prizes - I've shamelessly stolen the challenge info below so that I don't miss anything out.  Hopefully this will all post ok...

This week we are launching our very special Mega Christmas challenge which will last until January 3rd 2012. I’m sure you’ll agree that the design team deserve a little break to catch up on their last minute gifts and cards. However to make up for the lack of challenges we again have some magnificent prizes up for grabs.
Our theme for the Mega Christmas challenge is a nice easy one “celebrations”, so basically we want to see your creations for any type of celebrations, including birthdays. However as time is precious for our DT at this time of year we are limiting the number of entries you can make to just 3 for this month long challenge. Please remember to be eligible for our prizes you must use your promarkers, flex markers, tria markers or aqua markers.

So now for the exciting bit – the prizes!

Letraset are offering 1 amazing prize of 3 new packs of promarkers (metallics set, contemporary xmas set, modern xmas set)

Crafts & Me are generously offering 6 digis of winner's choice

Now I'm hoping it was actually ok to make a Christmas card because no one else on the DT seems to have used Christmas as their 'celebration'!

I've used one of the fab new images from DigiStamp Boutique - there are 5 new 'offer of the month' sets for December and this one is from the very cute Rudolph set.  I've made this one for my auntie and her hubby, but now I'm not sure if I should be making them separate cards this year - Mike's in the army and he was sent to Afghanistan in Nov for 6 months, so my mum says she's buying them separate cards... it doesn't take much to confuse me so I can't make up my mind what to do now lol!

Anyway... I've coloured the image with flexmarkers and promarkers, with some pearls for the red noses and mistletoe.  The papers are Dovecraft with red cardstock from Papermill Direct, wooden snowflake and heart button are from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

I've got Dex home from nursery today because he's been up most of the night coughing and crying - which means me and hubby hardly slept either.  Weirdly, even though Dex often asks if he can stay at home, today when he's actually poorly he's all upset because he wants to go to nursery!  He's curled up on the sofa watching Toy Story at the moment, and he's got Toy Story 2 and 3 lined up for when it's finished lol.  Sorry I've really rambled today, haven't I?  That's what no sleep does to me... well done if you made it to the end of all that nonsense :o)

I love your card Lisa, very sweet. I totally understand sleep depprivation. I was up most of last night with the dog. Kids arent so bad but a dog with an icky belly isnt pleasant lol. Things us mums have to go threw aye.

Craftdee said...

Reallllly cute image! I love the paper too, it's perfect with the little brown deer and the red makes it "pop". I think you might just have to make another card for your uncle, so "they" know they're still part of a couple and "he" knows you haven't forgotten him, that's how I would feel anyway (for what it's worth!) Hope Dex is better soon, sure he will be - it's the way it goes at that age. Donna xx
