Passion for Promarkers

Good morning, I was hoping for a good poor down but its seems its getting hotter again, I know I am such a moaner but I love the colder weather, I had a little play yesterday as I could see for a bit and created a leaving card for one of the teachers at school, she started when Teej started in Nursery so has been there 18 years and she has always been so lovely, so sad to see her go but she is going on to do better things as a SENCO so it's not all sad....







I have used "Pro/Brush" markers for my "James with Daisy" ad I added some pencil for his cheeks, hes rather large as this is an 8X8 so all the staff can sign it, I used papers from "The Digi Rainbow" and added some Lace and Ribbon from my stash, I added some gems and created big flowers from the same papers and a butterfly, my card is for "Passion For Promarkers" which this week is Flowers, thank you for looking big hugs Pops x

I had a break

Good afternoon I had a break as during the high winds a few tiles fell off the roof and then came the rain and the leaks pouring through, we had to wait until the wind had died down and the rain had stopped ,before it got fixed, what a mess it made, my biggest fear is that it would leak in to the lift as it was running that way, anyway the roof is now fixed and we have a dehumidifier that is collecting lots of water still, and we have bad winds again for the last 2 night the first thing I did both mornings is to run out and check that the tiles was still on the roof and so far so good.....

I have a returned mojo to get using up I was itching to play and now I can play again so I printed of this super cute digital stamp from "Mo's Digital Pencil" she is called For Teacher but I love her for any occasion, she reminded me of summer and that is so needed right now.....




I dug out my Inktense Pencils as my marker skin tones have run out, so I am making the most of what I have, I have truly fallen in love with these pencils all over again, I raided my scrap draw for these scraps of paper, I added some scrap lace that just fit and some scrap ribbon, I added some pearls I was gifted, I used a punch for the butterfly and added a heart, and some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, I used "Cherry Blossoms" "Aster Daisy" and some "30mm 2 tone Roses" and I finished it of with a sentiment from my scrap draw, Thank you for looking today big hugs Pops x
