I ♥ Promarkers - Add Flowers

Finally..... I was beginning to think I would never make another card again! :) lol

Firstly thanks so much to everyone for all the get well messages and emails, it was lovely to know I was missed.  It did turn out to be quite a bit more serious than I first thought and took much longer to heal, but I am fully recovered now :)

So, this is the first card I have made in 3 weeks, and is my DT card for I ♥ Promarkers where this week the challenge is 'add flowers'.  Flowers have to be my favourite embellishment and whilst I love the gorgeous ready made ones, I also love to have a dabble myself and create my own blooms from scraps and left-overs.  :)  Our sponsor this week is the very generous  Di's Digis,  who gave us some lovely images to play with.  I used Mouse With Love and it was really easy and adorable to colour.

I used Promarkers, Prima Papers, MS punch and a mixture of dies and digi-dies.  (I will blog about my new digi die-cutter in a later post) :) but it did arrive the day of my injury! (bah!)

I am entering my card in the following competitions:

By The Cute and Girly - In The Garden
Crafters Companion - Here comes Summer
Bling it On - Embossing - the big flower and the nestie are embossed
Crafty Calender Challenge - Things with wings
Stamp Something - Red, White, Blue
The Stampman Challenge - Butterflies/Dragonflies
Stampin for the weekend - My Favourite things - PM's, Flowers
Dream Valley - Ribbon
Paperplaytime - Digi Monday, with Red, White, Blue
Bearly Mine - Summer Time

Thanks so much for looking at my blog today, and I hope you get chance to check out the rest of the DT's fabulous work and also find time to play along.

I was beginning to am hugely relieved to see you posting again. Take care with it though & don't try too much too soon (NB to remind PEP of same!). Love the delicate butterflies & the pastel colouring. Those fronds look super - never even heard of a digi-cutter.
Much love
Paula (PEP)
