Promarker challenge 57

Promarker Challenge 57.

The challenge this week is set by Debs, who wants to see your favorite things, a real toughie.. it took a while to find something a bit different from the norm, but as one of my favorite things is Lladro porcelain. I decided to go with this, so I hope it applies. The Lladro figurines of Giesha girl and the Cranes are my most favorite pieces. I have a set of cranes, and if ever I win the lottery I will buy the Geisha girl.....too Until then I will covet it from a shop window.

Embelishment.....Japanese hair ornament, was made by stamping out two different sentiment coins,(Ive no idea where these stamps are from as they have been in my stash for years) coloured them, Then I made paper beads and glued them to cocktail sticks.

Cards for Men Challenge

Another Monday morning.. I dont mind em now I dont have to go to work. Its a nice sunny one too. Unfortunately I have a job to do today... Clean behind the cooker... how on earth does it get in such a mess? Then paint it, as I have a new cooker being delivered this week..

oh think of all the crafty goodies I could have got with that money, plus the fact Id rather be crafting than cleanin n painting anyway. Im depressed now.. n I'll probably sulk all day... (lol)

Promarker Challenge 55

Morning all

Its a dull morning here, but no rain so Ive had to water the baskets and tubs... Im off to see my youngest 3 Grandsons this afternoon, which I will enjoy.

Passion for Promarker challenge 55

Has been sent by Anja, and the theme is Pink.

I have used all shades of pink but Im not too sure if Ive achieved what I wanted. (lol) I guess we all suffer self doubt... sometimes, I wanted a real Hindu feel, but was limited to the backing papers I have. In the end I settled for Papermania, Pink capsule collection. I cut four strips of 1/4 in card, to form the half frame.

Sir Stampalot monthly challenge

I felt right at home with this challenge, as I love my punches, and don't use them as much as I used too. I'm sorry the photo isn't very clear.. me n camera's don't mix.

The challenge for June

The Sirstampalot challenge this month was Punches, I decided to do a wedding card and box

The box

I cut out a large oval and glued it to the centre of the box, then cut 1/4 inch strips to form the trellis, and punched out the hearts to decorate the edge of the oval. Made the flowers from various punches and placed them around the box.

The card

I punched the edges two pieces of cream pearlised paper, using a Martha Stewart edge punch. Added the ribbon down the side, and stamped the sentiment, from SU

Promarker challenge 54

Hi all

Its a beautiful day so I hope your'e enjoying the sun. We have travellers on the green oposite my house, but I don't think they will be there long, at least there are only 4 vans there this time n not seventeen like last year. They don't bother anybody though, but that might have something to do with the fact there is a Policewoman lives next door but one(lol)
