Passion For Promarkers - inspiration photo

This week at Passion For Promarkers we have an Olympics themed inspiration photo for you... you can use the rings themselves, a sporty theme or just use the colours (as I've done).  We're sponsored by Joanna Sheen who is offering one lucky winner a £10 voucher for her online store.






This card is for my auntie's hubby (the auntie who's more of a friend/ sister as she's only 3yrs older than me!) who is a bit of a BBQ king... he just got back from nearly 7 months in Afghanistan yesterday, we're all glad he's back safe.  He missed out on Christmas so it's great that he's back in time for his birthday :o)

I've used one of the very cute Chester images from Pollycraft - I've got loads of Pollycraft images and it's so sad to see that they're closing... hope Paula will decide to reopen one day!  I've coloured Chester with promarkers and flexmarkers.  The papers are some old Doodlebug ones, with black core'dinations.  Green baker's twine and card candy from my stash, the sentiment is Stampin' Up.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

I'm also linking this up for the Linky Party at Pollycraft, which is running until the shop closes on 8th June.

Well as usual I'm behind with all your lovely blogs, so I'm going to spend the afternoon trying to catch up... have a fab day whatever you're up to :o)

  16. Hi Lisa, am finally catching up with everyone's blogs so I've just been taking a wander back through your latest cards.

    Love the Bella with flowers one - it's beautiful. Thanks so much for the sky tutorial as well, I've given it a go but I think I need more practice.

    This card is just brilliant, it's such a shame isn't it Pollycraft is closing down. Totally understand Paula's reasons why though and just hope she will open the shop again sometime in the future.
