Passion For Promarkers - animal crackers

Oops, I forgot to schedule my Passion For Promarkers card last night!  See, told you the kids were driving me doolalley!  This week our challenge is 'animal crackers' so we'd like to see all your animal themed projects.  We're sponsored by Letraset who are providing a fab stamping kit for our lucky winner.



I've used an image from the super cute Wallace Collection from DigiStamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers with a bit of glow and shadow using koh-i-noor pencils.  The papers are First Edition with dark brown cardstock from Papermill Direct.  Added some green pearls and that's about it, nice and simple :o)

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

I think we're off to the park in a bit, although Dex is being awkward and says he doesn't want to go... he's at that lovely stage where everything creates a tantrum.  We've been lucky to get away with it for so long I suppose!  He's 3.5yrs old and unlike our older son he didn't do the terrible twos... until now!  I'd really like my sweet little boy back please - the screaming, shouting, throwing things and hitting his brother is getting a little wearing now.  Oh well, I'd better stop waffling and get this posted!

  2. Hi Lisa

    I would say it gets better but my nearly 5 year old and just 7 year old are going through the same thing and have been for at least a year. having said that I have girls so I think you may be lucky!!!!
    I love your card, the glow is great.
    Hope the park trip is OK.

    Thank you so much for your lovely comment it means a lot. Megan still has pain but she sees a midwife later today so hopefully things are ok with baby still.....god I hope so!!!
    Have fun at the park shug you will miss their tantrums when they are older my youngest is in his teens so I dont get moods or anything but I really miss him when he was little even the days when he was a little sod.....which was nearly every day lol. Altho Natalie still does the tantrums & screams so we have that still lol.

  9. Gorgeous card, that colour is really really fab. I sympathise with the tantrums, I've got an 18 month old who thinks he's 2 1/2 lol, and when I wont let him do big boy things he gets in a right tizzy, and he's not talking much yet which makes it worse xxx
