Pirate Abi - DigiStamp Boutique - PFP DT

Good morning. Hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful sunshine. I'm having major car problems atm... latest quote was £1500... my ABS warning light came on a week ago...not causing any problems apart from the bill :)...   also found out on Friday that I have been displaced in my job in the NHS... huge changes going on but as I only have 2 1/2 years till I retire fully I am not really that concerned, will probably end up going back to being a staff nurse... haven't been one of those since 1978... It won't really affect me as I will be on protected salary till I retire.
Anyhoooooo.... enough moans. Today sees the start of a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers where this week the theme this week chosen by Lou is 'Create a Scene'. Our generous sponsor is Sally-Ann at Digi Stamp Boutique where the prize is 6 images of your choice and with so much to choose from you will not be disappointed.  I have used Pirate Ami.... so cute.................

I added her to a Sassy Studio background which unfortunately is no longer available.  I fussy cut her and added her to the background which is highlighted with rainbow mirrorboard. The ribbon is from my stash and a few card candi for accents. Think I got the anchor from Mei Flower.

She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Triamarkers. I also added diamond stickles to the volcano and glamour dust to the waves.  The sword and parrot eyes also have glossy accents added for effect.

The sentiment also comes with the stamp, and the inside reflects the front.

I hope you will join in with our challenge this week, we all need six gorgeous
extra digi stamps. To enter you do have to use Letraset products  (i.e. promarkers, flex markers, aqua markers, tria markers, metallic markers or neon markers)

Please take the time to pop over and see the wonderful cards the PFP girls have made for your inspiration this week.

What a fun card Eileen! Love the scene you created and fab colouring with added sparkle! OMG I am sure motor repair places just pluck figures out at random that seems a lot of money!! Sorry to hear about what is happening at work. I was very lucky as I managed to get a really good redundancy money as my role was no longer clinical, don't suppose that's a possibility for you?? Keep smiling! Susan xx
