1 & 2!


I'm going to start this post by apologising for the photo! Try as I might, I can't seem to get a better one today - it might improve if you click on it.
I've done this for several challenges and because I wanted to play with a birthday present. I got my first promarkers and already know that 30 is nowhere near enough!! They'll take a bit of getting used to I think but all in all, I'm reasonably happy with my first attempt although I need more practise. So this is the 1 part of the title - 1st time using promarkers.
The 2 part of the title is my 2nd entry into this weeks Bah! Humbug! - baubles. Now, I did warn the girls that they might get another card into this challenge but this wasn't what I had in mind! At least I'm caught up now, so I might just pick my loyalty sidebar banner up when I link this.

The card details are: 
Image - Christmas Garland from Crafty Ann's, coloured with promarkers and glitter
Plaid bp from Adobe Illustrator
Greetings Stamp from See D's
Snowflake button and gold ribbon from my stash
Swiss dots embossing folder for white mat.

The other challenges I'm entering my card into are:
ABC- new
Alphabet - new
Truly Scrumptious - sketch and the additional challenge of buttons and bows
Fab's big Christmas Challenge - bling it and/or punch it
Fab 'n' Funky - Embossing.

I've thoroughly enjoyed my foray into promarkers and you can expect to be seeing a lot more of them from now on! Thank you for your visit today and for all the lovely comments you leave me.
