Was feeling super sorry for myself this morning as I was working until 2.15 and unable to go to the opening of a new craft shop. My friend Karen did however manage to go and she bought some fantastic goodies was so jealous LOL . Well finished my shift which was actually a very good one and headed home. My hubby welcomed me home by telling me a package arrived this morning. And WOOOOOOOHOOOOOO my promarkers arrived.
I had initially ordered 4 but then decided to take the bull by the horns and I ordered a total of 19. There are masses more that i have my eye on, def need to get another skin tone, greys, more pinks, more blues, more greens, OMG I need the all LOL. Have been tinkering a little bit but not made a card yet as me and the boys were enjoying the sunshine in the garden this afternoon. Here is a wee pic of my new goodies, hope to get cracking and enter the promerker challenge for anything goes. Watch this space. Hope everyone is getting lots of sunshine this weekend.

This is my very 1st entry got a challenge. Have decided to enter The C.R.A.F.T Challenge. As it's a new challenge blog the challenge was to make a card with a NEW theme. I have chosen to make a NEW BABY card and here it is
I used Joanna Sheen's Messy rabbit baby stamp for the main image and water coloured her. the wee bots were then flocked and a the image was decoupaged. I also used the cuttlebug baby embossing folder for the side panel, and these were mounted into pink card from my stash. As this was actually for someone I added the craft creations gold peel off's with the message Congratulations on your New baby and embellished with two pink gem hearts. Sorry it's not a great picture my camera is well and truly on the blink so had to use my phone which does not have the best camera in the world.
Hope you have all had a fantastic Sunday.

For this card I stamped Daisy onto Iced gold card stock from my local paper mill, water coloured her (although one day I hope to be able to use Pro Markers). The paper is from a pack of Rob and Bob Studio papers I bought from QVC some time ago. The daisies were punched out of matching papers from the pack and the gems are papermaina self adhesive ones.
Anyhoo hope you liked the card and I so hope that I manage to keep this blog going
