Podgy Bees - I ♥ Promarkers DT Card.



So, here I am today with a scheduled post, just in case my electricity is still down :(

Today is the start of a new challenge over on I ♥ Promarkers where this week the theme is pearls.  I LOVE pearls! We are sponsored this week by Digi Doodles who generously gave us some fab images to play with, and there are some great creations by the DT this week.

I have used a really fun digi-stamp (which I like to call 'podgy bees' lol) and you can get them in a great set including sentiments here.

Now, I love bees! They make me smile, they defy all the laws of nature, and shouldnt be able to fly!  I have been known to send my poor husband, risking life and limb,  into the bushes to photograph them close up! lol

Ta da!! ;)


So, I coloured my images with promarkers, hand stitched K&Co paper, and used spellbinders and Tim Holtz dies.  I used a MS punch and the pearls, charm and leaves were from stash.

I am entering this card in the following competitions:

2 Sisters Challenge - Use a digi
CES Challenges - Embellish it
One Stitch at a time - Bling it on
Paper Playtime - Just for fun, with a charm
Craft your Passion - Let it all hang out

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, hopefully when I am back online I will catch up with my commenting,

Oh goodie - another bee addict. Our big burly builders watched in horror as I stroked the bees feeding on our Cotoneaster hedge. Love the photo & that bee charm is terrific. Hope you're much warmer by now.

Hi Alison. This is really gorgeous. Love the bee images and the colours and layout. My eldest daughter goes mad when she sees a bee or a wasp come near her. She screams that much you would think she was hurt. Hope your electricity is sorted. Donna
