Passion for Promarkers - lace & swirls... and my fab news!

Well, today's off to a very disorganised start - took Morgan to school for his first day back, to find the gates locked and no one there... Came home, checked the last newsletter and found the bit that says they go back tomorrow... umm, oops?!  So we get to do the 'first day back' thing all over again tomorrow lol.

Anyway... I'm here to show you my DT card for this week's challenge at Passion For Promarkers, which is 'lace & swirls'.  We're sponsored by Letraset, who have a new Promarker Collector's Set for one lucky winner.




I've used the gorgeous Fifi Goes Walkies from Sugar Nellie at Funky Kits, and coloured her with promarkers and flexmarkers.  The papers are First Edition Summer Breeze, and I've used a Cheery Lynn flourish die, Memory Box cherry blossom die and an MFT corner die.  Added some lace, ribbon, button and pearls from my stash, and the sentiment is from a set of tag stamps - not sure what make they are though.

Now I said I had some fab news didn't I?!  I'm thrilled to at last be able to share a little secret - the lovely Teresa asked me to join her fabulous team at My Craft Heart and of course I said yes :o)  So excited, and I'm already enjoying working with Teresa's gorgeous goodies - I'll be back tomorrow with an 'official' MCH DT card!

Thank you to everyone who left me printer advice yesterday, you're all so helpful!  The Kodak sounded good, but I'm afraid it'd drive me mad if the red didn't print properly.  We've decided on a Canon, but I've got to wait until tomorrow evening to get it - fingers crossed it'll do everything I need it to!  Hope you all have a lovely day :o)

  15. Wonderful colours, fabulous colouring!
    Congrats on the news Lisa - you deserve it!
    Would love to know how you get on with Canon. I've stopped colour printing, our HP goes through the ink so quickly and it doesn't like being filled with those ink kits. I can only use it for printing digi stamps at the moment! Karen x
