ProMarkers week #19 - I was gutted last week when I couldn't take part, I didn't have the right colours and as I had just received another half a dozen (which brought my total to 64!) from Wendy at Secret Crafter I couldn't justify buying any more :0 I managed this week's challenge ok though and the colours look beautiful together and are perfectly matched with Stampin Up papers ..........and clearly I wasn't the only one who thought so LOL. Anyway, the challenge this week is "Onto this week's challenge, which has been chosen by our new guest designer Sam, and she would like us to use cool aqua and apricot as our colour scheme with a twist to use flowers (not too difficult this week!)."
gems and brads - from stash
How many times have I posted today?!? I think this is my 6th......I'll need a lie down after the next one :)
sentiment - MSE rub on, everyting else from stash
Not quite! A client came to see me a couple of weeks ago with three necklaces which she has had for quite a while but were so long and heavy she couldn't wear them. This is what they morphed into :)This necklace was lovely. The large flat beads had an almost mother of pearl effect, really pretty. I made two necklaces, a bracelet and a pair of earrings.
This next necklace is dark grey and out of this one I managed to make two necklaces, a bracelet and two pairs of earrings.
This one is the same as the one above but clear glass beads. Again, I managed two necklaces, two pairs of earrings and a bracelet. Exit one very happy customer :)
The final picture is of my table on Sunday at the wedding fayre. It was really difficult to get a decent photo as the lighting in the room wasn't very good and we had the glare of the window to contend with too. Not knowing much about photography or how to use the camera might have something to do with it LOL but it was actually DH who took the pics not me :)
Till next time, thanks for looking.
from Friday Sketchers. This time I've teamed it up with the challenge from Colour Create as I just love this colour combination.The colour combination is HOT PINK, DUSKY PINK, ICE CHOCOLATE.The optional extra if you would like to play along with that too is - pearls and swirls
ribbon - Ribbon Oasis, rub on - MSE
I managed the swirls (on the paper!) but completely forgot about the pearls and used crystals instead, what a muppet LOL
Another lovely sketch but this time I turned it onto it's side (I hope the team don't mind :))
flowers - Prima, gems - Papermania, sentiment - EZ rub on, lace from stash, Nesties
I hope you like it :)
flourish - QK Revolution, everything else from stash

This first card is also being entered for the Secret Crafter challenge which is "This week's challenge has been set by the lovely JILL and she has chosen a theme of:-ANIMAL ANTICS We want to see animals in your projects, the stranger and funnier things they are up to the better!"
I think this lovely little bear fits that challenge :)

sentiment - Crate rub on, gems - Papermania
This is a new challenge for me and I don't even know how I came across it. I know that it saved me from having a strop cos I didn't have the right colours to enter the Passion For ProMarkers challenge this week for the first time ever (and I've got about 60 of the blooming things! ;)) I will definitely be visiting the CCC blog again though, there is some lovely work over there.
Thanks for looking and have a nice weekend whatever you are up to.
Well that's another week disappeared in a cloud of dust! Does anyone know where the tim is actually going cos I could sure as heck do with going and bringing some back LOL. I achieved so much at the beginning of the week and it seems to have gone down hill from there :) I need to do a bit of prep for tomorrows wedding fayre but apart from that I think I'm still on track (except for another album commission that I wanted to start but I'll make that a priority on Monday!)
It's reveal day on the Rosie-Dee challenge blog and the challenge for this week is to include stars and stripes on your project. So without further ado :) here is my card
silver star - Craftwork Cards, sentiment - Crate rub on
Don't forget to pop over to the RD blog and see what my other talented team mates have come up with and there is still chance to join in before te new challenge goes live tomorrow evening.
Thanks for dropping by.

.......this time it's another one of Dawn's lovely sketches from Inspirational Card Sketch blog
I just love these Best Man and Bridesmaid images, they are so cute!
Again, I used a sketch for the first one, this time from Sketch Saturday.
This card is using the same sketch but with a rectangle instead of an oval for the image.
And this one doesn't use any sketch at all!!
All I need to do now is get DHto show me how to upload them to the web site!!
Here is the sneaky peek of my DT card for the new challenge at Rosie Dee's The challenge for this week is to incorporate stars and stripes into your project.
Why don't you take a hop over to Rosie Dee's and take a look at the fab projects the rest of the team have made, hopefully they will inspire you enough to join us! Don't forget to post a link to your work so we can come over and have a look.
