Just cute Bears, Passion For ProMarkers... and... New Glasses!!

Hi Everyone!!

I am back today with yet more challenge cards!! My fingers just won't stop creating at the mo he he!!

The first card is for the Just Cute Bears Challenge... they have a gorgeous colour combo of yellow and green... I love these challenges because you get to use up stash which you wouldn't normally have, and they make you use different colours from the norm... I'll try these colours again for sure... thanks girls!!

I've used another adorable Lili of the Valley image sent to me by the very kind Jill... I think I might treat myself to this one!! (I just noticed that Jenny and Sarah had also used the same image for their DT cards... that's spooky!!) The spotty paper has been in my stash for about 7 years!! I got it when I was a member of a postal craft club that used to run... where you got 5 things when you joined for like 50p each and then had to buy 6 things at full price... I haven't seen it advertised in any magazines for ages... I'm guessing it finished??

My second card is for the Passion for ProMarkers Challenge where there is a theme 'The Young Ones' I have used this cute Little Moon Fairy from Pollycraft as I think she's just perfect for cards for youngsters...

Again I've been raiding my scraps... I've coloured her dress in a 'Burnt Orange' colour ProMarker... I love this shade and it went so well with the Basic Grey dotty paper.

Oh... and... I went to Specsavers on Tuesday and got some new glasses... they're a bit more funky than normal... I'm still getting used to them... Hmmm... I went for the designer range, they're by Roxy... I looked them up on the web and they're a division of QuickSilver who are like a surfing type company... not really my look but hey... maybe I could get a wet suit and take up a new hobby lol!!

((N.B You can always tell when people have taken photos of themselves!! LOL!!))

Thanks for looking... yay!! My blog is looking a bit more loved now he he!!

Today I'm taking Dyl to a local Wacky Warehouse type place and then dinner at Sainsburys (his choice) he loves their little lunch bags with sandwiches and little bits in them, at least he's a cheap date!!

**Edit** We just got back and that place was mental, forgot how rowdy kids can get!! I had to tell off a boy for throwing balls in Dyl's face and had to rescue a baby who got stuck climbing... all the mums were tucked behind their Take a Break mags... it was bedlam lol!!**

Love Becky xx
