This is my Mother's Day card for my gran, I hope she likes it. I have used my new Popcorn stamp, which I like but wish it was a little smaller. As the stamp is soo big I couldn't follow any of the sketches this week as they didn't fit so I went for a simple layout. I can however still add it to a few challenges. The "Fancy Edge and Ribbon" theme over at Crafty Catz, the "Ribbon-Tastic" theme at Cute Card Thursday and "Always Apricot, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla" from Tuesday Morning Sketches.
I have coloured the image with my trusted Promarkers:
Popcorn - Raw Sienna, Mustard, Vanilla and Ivory
Flowers - Henna, Burnt Orange and Spice; Mandarin, Pumpkin, Amber and Apricot
Leaves and Stems - Forest Green, Grass and Lime Green
Duckling - Amber, Yellow, Lemon and Soft Lime

I have used the layout from Sketch and Stash (my new stash is the leaf backing paper). I have followed the colour theme of "Green Plus One Other" over on My Time to Craft. This is my first attempt at a monochrome image (though I did add some accents with the flowers) and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.
I have used Daisy from Sugar Nellie and coloured her with Promarkers:
Girl - Cool Greys 1-5
Flowers - Forest Green, Grass and Lime Green
For this card I have followed the layout from Sunday Sketch and Stamp. I have used a Spring theme and so can enter two challenges A Spoon Full of Sugar and Stamp Something. I have included both Bows and Buttons and so can enter the Passion for Promarkers challenge and because I have used a Ribbon too I am entering Pink Elephant.
I have again used a Sugar Nellie stamp and coloured her with Promarkers:
Dress - Olive Green, Moss and Pear Green
Apron - Burnt Orange, Mandarin, Pumpkin, Honeycomb and Apricot
Hair - Walnut, Cocoa, Cinnamon and Caramel
Ribbon - Mustard, Canary and Lemon
Lamb - Pastel Beige
The papers are from My Mine's Eye.
I thought I had better start making my Mother's Day cards as it's three weeks today. For this card I have followed the sketch from Truly Scrumptious. As it's for Mother's Day I can enter it into the "Mother's Day" challenge at Secret Crafter Saturday and the "Something for Mum" theme over at Quixotic Paperie. I can enter it into the "Metal Mania" theme over at Cute Card Thursday because I have used a toadstool charm.
I have used Penny Black's Guess Who stamp and coloured with Promarkers:
Hedgehog - Cool Greys 3-5, Pale Pink and Almond
Mouse - Terracotta, Raw Sienna and Apricot and Pale Pink
Toadstool - Crimson, Berry Red, Red, Pastel Pink, Raw Sienna, Vanilla and Ivory
Grass - Forest Green, Grass and Pear Green

This is a card I made for one of my colleagues who got married whilst on holiday in Australia. She loved it. I am entering it into the One Stop Craft challenge as I have followed their sketch. I have used a Fiorever Friends sticker for the wedding couple and Papermania Love papers.

The sketch I have followed for this card came from Sketch Saturday. I can enter it into two challenges because I have used an animal stamp: the "All Creatures Great and Small" from Passion for Promarkers and "Four Legged and Furry from Cupcake.
With it being Valentines day next weekend there are a lot of "Love" and Valentine" themes for which I am entering with this card they are:
Whiff of Joy
The stamp I have used is by Alison Acton from Whiff of Joy and I have coloured him with my Promarkers:
Henry - Raw Sienna, Mustard, Vanilla, Ivory and Pale Pink
Heart - Berry Red, Red and Pastel Pink
