HOPE!!!! there is always hope....


Hey is my newest card using Krista Smiths free image a while back.
I put this one together for a friend to give and i think it came together quite well. I embellished with Prima flowers with some buttons and a hope charm. Did a little dry embossing and that about covers it...what do you all think???? Great image and do you see i added pink to her hair...might be a little much but that's how it goes. Have a fabulous spring day..

Thanks for stopping by and leaving the most awesome comments..I so enjoy reading them all..

OMG!! Look what i made....first time ever...

Hey Gang...i'm just so excited that i managed to put together a small mini journal. It's not all dolled up with allot of bling and embellishments as i'm going to be using this daily and if i wanted to bring it with me shopping to pick up more markers it will slip right into my purse. I've never attempted one of these before as i don't have the right tools and they just look too complicated. Well i managed with what i have and this is what i came up with to keep track of my promarkers. Colours as well as my combinations that work well..

As you can see it's very simple....i wish i had a cinch to bind it but i made due with my cropadile and some rings. I have a little title page for each section and a few pages of each for the hair & skin, practice sheets as well as colour combos. I created a couple pockets on the front and back cover. I also have a sheet of acetate to use behind the paper you are colouring in case of bleeding. I was going to mount each paper on a thin cardboard like a cereal box but i didn't know if the rings i had would fit all the pages then. I used some bobunny paper...well i only used 1.25 sheets and the rest is kraft paper. The only major problem i had is i use a laser printer and my papers curl a bit...i'm gonna stack this between some heavy books and hope it straightens for me. There are a few other pages that you don't a blank promarker page, flexmarker page and each header is a page as well, i just cut out the title. 

 If any of you PROMARKER users like this, you can find it HERE!!!

Kim..that's me
(Pucker up baby)

Do you not agree..this is the most adorable image. You can purchase these digital images HERE. I had such fun colouring it up...As you may have noticed i used colours i normally don't use. Soft and mushy...i usually go for the bold and loud colours. I used promarkers as usual, a couple diecuts, ribbon and a button. I printed the image a little big so i didn't put a sentiment on. This card could be used for birthday, celebration, your the best, love you, just because or even a thank you. I love these papers by DCWV Sweet stack with glitter that my mom got me when she visited her sister in Florida...THANKS MOM. I think i would be in trouble if i shopped in the states...i would have to bring a whole bucketful of money that's for sure...

A thank you card for someone SPECIAL!!!

Hey gang... just a short post to share a little something. I'm in awe of all the kind hearted bloggers out there. One in particular that has gone over and above to help a fellow blogger she has never met... As most of you know i've recently been published in a UK magazine and was soooo excited that i didn't even realize i couldn't get a copy here in Ontario and this fabulous lady...Elaine offered to send it to me...and to top if off she didn't even want me to pay for it. When does that happen anymore in this world? I'm just shocked by her kindness so i just had to send a thank you card...I wish i could have sent more, like a coffee gift card or something but i had no idea what establishments she has in her city. So i sent her this card, something very small but i hope she likes took some time to colour her up as i wanted it to be perfect...well as best as i can do.. THANK YOU Elaine, you are the best!!!

You can visit her personal blog HERE

Krista Image again, super cute. Coloured with promarkers, used some ribbon, a border punch and buttons to finish this off...Sentiment stamp is from a stamping up set i won, which was perfect for what i wanted to say.

Thanks for dropping by and leaving the most awesome love....

A simple design inspired by of my favorite blogs to visit. This image is called Mother & Son which can be found HERE. Not only can this be used as a Mother & Son digi, but also, Big Sister, Brother or daycare/teacher with their student...I loved colouring this one with my promarkers and used my JUSTWORDZ stamp sets for the sentiment. Die cuts for the buttons and the paper was from a long ago pad from costco i have laying around. Plain design but turned out OK to my way of thinking...

Welcome to another challenge over at PASSION FOR PROMARKERS. This weeks theme is Weather the Weather picked by Lis. The prize this week is from

Letraset and you can win a fabulous..

Limited Edition "spring" pack of promarkers....

(lucky lucky you, i've been wanting this set since it came out..)

Obviously don’t forget you must use your Letraset products (i.e. promarkers, flex, tria or aqua markers) to be entered into the prize draw. Now on to my card this week. I did find it difficult to come up with something for this theme but decided i would use a image that represents out in the for me right????

This image was found on the Internet and i'm so so sorry i can't place where it came from but it's a fabulous image coloured with promarkers, used graphic 45 papers, added some corrugated cardboard and eyelets. Used my new My Favorite Things die cut for the film strip and that completed this one. I think it turned out to be a not bad male card. No sentiment this time around and i wanted to keep it open...get your entries in ladies....come join in on the fun...
