Learning is Fun/Back to school - TPS DT

Good morning everyone and welcome to my new follower Tracey.  I am here today with my Paper Shelter head on as a new challenge 'Sun, Moon and Stars' starts today.  You have to have at least one of them on your card.  Can I also remind you that the DT call ends tonight so if you want to join us today is your final chance.  Good luck to those who have already entered.

For today's card I have combined the backing paper from 'Back to School' with the image from 'Learning is Fun'.

I haven't used any dies on this one, just some straight cutting. The pearls, ribbon and paperclips are from my stash. The stars paper is from Nitwits, all mounted on coordinations.

She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Tria Markers with a little glossy accents to her glasses, badges and bracelets.

The inside does reflect the front.

I hope you will play along with us this week as our prize is once again a $30 voucher to spend in store if you use a TPS image, or 3 digi's of your choice for any other image.

The other girls have made some fab cards for your inspiration this week.

Thanks for taking the time to look

Little Kitty Lady - Sylvia Zet - PFP DT

Good morning everyone from a dull and very overcast North East. It certainly looks as if the Summer is over, thank goodness I am off to Egypt next week for 2 weeks of sun and relaxation.
Today sees the start of a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers where the lovely Shelly has chosen the theme of 'Perfect Pets'.
This was an easy one for me as I had a commissioned card for this week and they wanted a cat on it.  I chose to use a freebie from Sylvia Zet that I got ages ago,'Little Kitty Lady', and it is purrrrrrrrrrrrrfect for this challenge :)

A purrrrrrrrrrple purrrrrrrrrring little lady.  She is cut with SB Grand Cirlces and backed onto Grand Scalloped Circles large. The sentiment is cut and mounted using MFT fishtail stax.  Ribbon from Mei flower. Lace from the Ribbon Girl. Flowers from WOC and corners from my stash.

You may have spotted a little difference from the card on the Promarker blog.  I kept looking at it and decided it just had to have some flowers.

She is of course coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers with a little distress ink around the edges.

It doesn't show that well but I also added Glamour Dust to the ribbon on her hat and scarf and some Glossy Accents to her nose and eyes.

The inside reflects the front.

I hope you will join in with the challenge where you could win $10 of digi papers from our generous sponsor Michele, of Michele R Designs, from her selection at Whimsy stamps

I hope you will take the time to look at the gorgeous cards the other DT ladies have made. Thanks for taking the time to look
