I ♥ Promarkers - Metal or Charms

This card drove me nuts!... I lost the original image I had coloured for these papers and spent so long faffing around looking for them, that I gave up and had to colour this image in in about 15 minutes! I hate rushing too.  I suspect one of my dogs thought it looked tasty, but neither of them were owning up ;) lol

Anyway, this is my DT card for I ♥ Promarkers where this week we are sponsored by one of my very favouritest online shops - Joanna Sheen.  We had a fabulous response last week to our anything goes theme, and this week we would like to see metal or charms on your designs.

I used HOTP papers, Marianne and spellbinder dies and a christmas tree charm from stash. 

Now - hands up who couldnt resist buying any of the new LOTV releases yesterday then? :D  It was just so hard to choose, as they were all so gorgeous!  I decided to use this stamp after spotting it on the site and remembering I hadnt inked it up before! Naughty me! :D

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Lili of the Valley - Fab Sketch
Moving along with the Times - Handmade Flowers
PaperPlay Challenges - Make your own flowers
Craft Your Days Away - Make own flowers
Crafters Companion - Christmas Wishes

Thanks so much for looking and good luck to everyone in these challenges.

Love the would have taken me much longer to get anywhere near the quality !!

My loopy Spanish rescue dog also loves eating my craft bits that I drop...she once ended up covered with a whole new roll of DST...completely chewed into little bits scattered over her whole body!!

Wow! what a corker Alison!!! awesome colouring and she is SO adorable! Gorgeous papers, borders and love the ribbon and charm!
Yes, I have been on the LOTV site just now. Said I would get two stamps - but I got three!! and one of those big stamp sheets with ribbons on !!!! I am SO BAD !!!! and I feel really guilty now LOL
I read once about a woman who gave DP to her dog to distress it !!! Hmm.. I presume she was joking!!!

A gorgeous card and a great take on the sketch. Thanks for playing along at LOTV this week, hope to see you next time. Good Luck! Hugs Christine x

15 mins??? What??? No - 'twould take me at least several hours. Love the dimension in that bonnet. If the culprit thought it looked tasty it sounds as if he has a taste for glitter & crunchiness......... how frustrating. Delightful pastel background with the red of the image really catching the eye & accented by the stripes in the paper.

This is gorgeous Alison, I brought some of the LOTV stamps from their previous release and darnt look on their site at the moment as I really can't spend any more money on crafty bits. My other half said I will be selling the house soon to support my crafty addiction hehe.

Love the papers and rich colours and just 15 minutes WOW takes me longer than that to decide what colours to use hehe.

Have a fab weekend, work has been a bit hectic again and having to work tomorrow and yes I watched Calamity Jane last weekend :) xx
