First card in Feb..........

.......... I am such a bad blogger!

I just don't seem to have enough hours in the day or days in the week right now and to top that my mojo just deserted me. Can you believe it, I even ran out of white card! Ordered some on ebay, which due to a mess up, has taken ages to arrive. Still, with the refund I was offered by way of an apology it was worth the wait :0)

Now I have been dithering over Promarkers for ages & ages, and having spotted some in a sale I have finally taken the plunge. Well, I needed something to get my mojo back!

Have had a play with several images and am not disappointed, although I do need to work on my technique still.

My daughter reminded me this morning that she had asked for a birthday card for a friend.......Eeeeeeek! ........by today! So off to 'work' I went and here is the result.

Ingredients:
Image ~ Magnolia
Bazzill card ~ Jacaranda
Paper ~ Making Memories Spring Floral
Promarkers ~ Skin-Ivory; Blush; Hair-Vanilla, Sandstone & Terracotta (I think!);
Trousers-Duck egg; Top-Lavender; Boots-Sandstone.
Tools ~ Nesties, embossing tool.
Text ~ done on PC
Lace & card candy from stash.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

http://sketchandstashchallenge.blogspot.com/ Great sketch and having a sketch to follow helps to take some of the decision making out of the equation! And oh boy do I need that...... 'cos it takes me for ever other wise! Rotated the sketch 90* and added a wee bit of card candy. The second part of the challenge is to use my newest stash, and that's my Promarkers!
Bought in a sale from here http://www.cowlingandwilcox.com/default.aspx
