Passion for ProMarkers Week 51

For this weeks PASSION FOR PROMARKERS challenge Sue has chosen STRAWBERRIES AND CREME as the theme. This was a challenge that took some brainstorming before I ended up with this weeks card. But easy challenges aren't really that much fun are they? This week the lucky winner will get a 5-pack of ProMarkers sponsored by LETRASET.

I have used a In2Stamps stamp and coloured it with my loving ProMarkers distressed the edges and inked them with Vintage Photo. I have distress the edges of all my paper panels, embossed the circled paper with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, the flower is from Prima, post card stamp from Papirloftet, lace around the image from my stash. The pattern paper is from October Afternoon.

Thanks for looking and for the comments! :)

I won.. *iiiikkk*

Today I went to a Volkswagen show at Tyrigrava (arranged by Follo VW Klubb) with my friend Beate and her kid Lloyd. We meet up with the other girls in our Fireflies club, old friends and had a good time. And as sweet as my friends are they voted my car for Peoples Choice, and I WON!! *iiiiik* ;)This is the first "official" show I have brought the bug to other then local meets around where I  live so that was fun. 

A big thanks to Erik for all the great help with getting the car ready this season and for being a good mechanic!! And to Baard for the photo's that I stole ;) Hihi.

Trykkpressa MAI

I'm off sick this week and today I got some good fresh air and made a card, it was nice doing something else then sleeping. The card I made is for en MAY challenge at Ett Trykk called TRYKKPRESSA. Ett Trykk is a Norwegian stamper/scrapper magazin. This month they wanted us to use Green, Blue/Turquiose and Creme/White. So I inked up one of my new stamps Jack & Ginger from Mo Manning and coloured it with my ProMarkers (Cool Grey 1-4, Ivory, Pastel Beige, Kakhi, Pastel Blue, Denim Blue and Blender) and Copics (R000 and R0000) The gorgeous papers are from 3ndy Papir.

Thanks for looking
