Anything Goes @ I ♥ Promarkers!

Morning fellow bloggers :) 

So today sees the start of a new challenge over at I ♥ Promarkers and because its such a busy time of the year for everyone, this challenge will run for 2 weeks.  It also couldnt be easier to enter as our theme is 'Anything Goes!' :)  What a great excuse to test out any new stash we get from Santa! ;) lol. 

We are sponsored this week by Di's Digi Downloads, and she has some real cute images to choose from.

I have made this card for my wonderful hubby to give him on Christmas Day.  I know he has indulged me and spoiled me rotten this year, and is also taking us out for Christmas Dinner.  It takes such a lot of stress away when you dont have to worry about last minute grocery shopping, cooking the perfect dinner and then the dreaded washing up! :) lol.

Best. Present. Ever!!!

I used a cute Fizzy Moon stamp and matching papers, and kept it quite clean and simple looking for me.  The dies are Spellbinders and Marianne, and the image is coloured using PM's and Flexmarkers.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Totally Gorjuss - For someone special
Crafty Calendar - Cold & Frosty
Deep Ocean Challenge - Warm Wishes
ABC Challenge - F = Frosty
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Anything Goes + Ribbon
Crafts & Me - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Last Christmas Card
Simon Says Stamp - Bingo - Ribbon/Gems/Glitter

Thanks so much for looking at my blog today, I am still catching up, and just wanted to say I really appreciate all the wonderful comments.  I have been lucky to get quite a few lovely new followers lately, and I always follow back (if I can find a link), so if I haven't been to visit yet, please leave a comment so I can find you :)

Oooh... this is a lovely card Alison. I too treated myself to this stamp but haven't got around to playing with it. I intend to do a little stamping and colouring over Christmas so it may get christened then. The Fizzy Moon Christmas collection was gorgeous this year and I made quite a few cards from the decoupage pack. Hope you have a lovely Christmas and thank you too for becoming a follower. Best Wishes xx

Lorraine said...

EEEK - how adorable is this card?! I love it and all of the die cuts and your gorgeous coloring!

Annette said...

This is a lovely card, and not too fussy for a man. I love the idea of the 'thank you' for Christmas. How thoughtful of him to take you out on Christmas day. Much less stressful and so a real treat for you both. Hope you have a lovely time. I'll be thinking of you when I'm getting all hot and bothered steaming my sprouts !!

Awww, this is just perfect Alison; those little bears are adorable. I love all the sparkle you've added.

I do Christmas dinner every year for 9 of us and, as much as I love everyone being together, it is stressful and tiring. I was chuffed to bits when my daughter suggested we all go out next year - yay!!

Hope you and Dave (I missed him off my card!!) have a lovely Christmas and a very happy new year.

Vicky said...

Hi Alsion. This is really beautiful. Love the cute image and the colours and detail are amazing as always. Snowman Soup is a cellophane? bag filled with marshmallows, hot chocolate sachet and a candy cane. I also use a snowman soup verse from hi hopes stamps although you can google the verse too. Donna

Karina said...

Sarah said...

Hi Alison, it's a gorgeous card! Such a sweet image and a wonderful hubby to take you out to dinner on at Christmas! I get halfway there with my hubby, he cooks on Christmas day - but we still have to do dishes!

Oh this is gorgeous Alison! Love all that red and white together, very striking. I hope you enjoy your Christmas meal out and have yourself a fabulous Christmas! keeleyxx

Sue said...

Aww this is gorgeous Alison! What a cute bear couple. Love all the sparkle. Beautiful paper and embellishments. Your hubby is gonna love it !!!
He sounds a real gem - taking you out for Christmas Dinner and it will be wonderful for you! I think 'the xmas dinner' can sometimes be very stressful. There has been many an argument over it in our house over past years!!! LOL. My brother once bought a turkey and forgot to defrost it. It was quite big and he somehow stuffed it in microwave to try and defrost it. When it didn't work he took it back to the shop and said he had bought it and it was all bruised and battered!!! ROFL and that's just one story….

If I don't catch you before…
Hope you and your loved ones have a very Happy Christmas and New Year!
Big Hugs!
Sue xx
