Hi all, phew it's hot again today but a breeze has just sprung up so hopefully it will cool down for tonight.
I have two cards to show you which I am entering into various challenges.
My first card I made last night while being harassed by both my son and doggy, I did make a small mistake but I don't think that it will be noticed, lol.
I have used a Sarah Kay image which I don't think I have inked up before, I wanted to join in this weeks Passion for Promarkers challenge so searched for it among my stash and inked it with Momento Tuxedo Black ink, I have coloured the image with Promarkers as I thought that it was about time I started using them again.  I see quite a few of my blogging buddies use them and it has inspired me to give them more airing.  I did buy some of the new fine nib attachments from Joanna Sheen, which converts the Promarker into a fine liner and it is perfect for the smaller areas.
The papers I have used are K&Co and went for a blue and green theme, I die cut the hearts, distressed a doily and put behind the image, I then used my new SU Flower die cut, I used bronze stickles for the centre of the big flower and a jeweled brad for the second, finally I added a stamped sentiment.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
For my second card I have used a stamp that I got from Funky Kits absolutely ages ago but have never used, I coloured this one again with Promarkers, I used a white 6x6 scalloped base card the pink card is pearlescent and I have embossed it with the Hougie Board, the paper is K&Co cut into a large circle, I added  some butterflies, flowers and sentiment.
I would like to enter this one into the following challenges:
Many thanks for visiting today I do hope you like what I have created and I want to thank you all for your wonderful comments that you leave for me.

Two stunning cards Lorraine x

I have those heart dies but have not used them yet Lol
I also read that you purchased the nibs from Joanna Sheen. I actually see these today on her web, are they worth buying?
Also, the Houghie board .... I have seen demos, but always hum & arr about it. Does the new board from crafters Companion do the same.

Would be interested in your opinion.
