Passion for Promarkers week 27

For this weeks PfP challenge you can use any colours you choose, but the theme is vintage. I'm not sure if this passes as vintage, but it's my take on it. The image is Willow with Christmas candle by Whiff of Joy Stamps

Middle of the week already!!!!

Hope you're all having a lovely Wednesday, i can't believe how fast the weeks are zooming by, i have three different projects on the go at the mo, and the deadline is looming for one of them.
I managed to finish this card yesterday, i took me about three days, as i kept pushing papers around, and leaving it for a while, coming back, changing my mind, but in the end i went with this.
The cutie image is Cupcake Chef Daisy, which is another of the soon to be available new stamps from Squiggle Stamps. There's been a delay in the delivery of the rubba, but i'm sure they will be here soon.
The 'kiss the cook' is part of the From My Kitchen printable stamp set from The Cutting Cafe'.

Friday at last!!!

I'm so glad it's Friday, that means i can have a lay-in in the morning, as i won't have to get up to do the school run. I'm still trying to catch up with my much needed sleep after last weekend, so hopefully i'll feel more with it next week.
I have managed to make a card today, actually this is the second one i made today with this image, i hated the first one, so took the image off it and made this one instead. I'll show you the reject too, so you can see what i mean.
This cutie image is another one of the coming soon stamps from Squiggle Stamps, isn't she adorable?
The sentiment is part of the DRESS SHAPED CARD TEMPLATE - CUTTING FILE AND INVITE SET from The Cutting Cafe'.
This one was the keeper,

This is the one i rejected.
I welded the castle from Paper Dolls dress up to a square from George cart using the Cricut Design Studio, so the castle is actually the front of the card.

Fabulous weekend!!!

I've just had the most fantastic weekend with Sarah, Lianne and the Sarahscards design team girls. I've not laughed so much in ages or eaten and drank so much in one weekend, or had such late nights, or should i say early mornings lol. The whole weekend was perfect, and i have come away feeling really sad it had to end, but i have made 11 new friends, who are the friendliest/funniest and most talented bunch i've ever met. I can't wait until the Sarahcards retreat in March when we will all meet up again. This is where stayed..........

Anyway back to what i came on here to post. This weeks PfP challenge colours are Grass and Canary, and i've only just managed to make this quick card in time.
The image i've used is Snow Pals from Squiggle Stamps.
