Passion For Promarkers WK 11 & Papertake Weekly

Sophie had me playing Farmtown on Facebook last night and now I'm feeling tired because we stayed up late lol! I don't think I'll make much of a farmer lol!

Today's card is my entry for two challenges...the first Passion For Promarkers It's a free style week colour wise, you can use any colour pens you like however the twist is you have to follow a sketch which has been created by Michele! This sketch was no's a real cracker and one I really enjoyed following...thanks Michele! Oooh, I nearly forgot to mention that I've rotated the sketch as it fitted my image better this way! The second challenge is Papertake Weekly and they have a theme of Four Seasons and I have chosen Winter! I've used this rather cute 'Christmas Robin' from the Digi Stamp Boutique and I have also used design papers from a DCWV paper stack! The snowflakes were cut out on my Cricut and I lightly embossed them to give them some shape and added some glamour dust for some sparkle. I haven't added the sentiment yet as I couldn't decide which one I wanted to use! The little heart button is from my craft stash!

Thanks for visiting me today!
