Card for Promarkers - Halloween Theme (Prussian and Pumpkin)


A very good Saturday morning to you all. I am sorry I have been AWOL this week. As you know I had 2 days out at the start of the week with Tommy, I drove on Monday for the 1st time in months and bussed on Tuesday, this was necessary for to get his uniforms, unfortunately, my knee blew up to about 3 times its normal size, making sitting imposssible. It has eased off a bit, so I managed to get a challenge card done for the 1st time this week. It is for promarkers whose theme with week is a Halloween Theme, using the colours Prussian and Pumpkin. I used an image that was sent to me by a Docrafts friend, I think it is PB. I coloured it with the said colours and used white glitter for the cats coat. I also used a bit of glossy accents on the pumpkin. I also used my promakers to colour the peel offs which worked out quite well. The rest of yesterday I was making my grandson John's birthday card, he will be 2 tomorrow. This is quite a scary thought. 2 already, where does the time go. I will post this card next week as I don't want his mum (Nikki) to see it before his birthday.......I hope all is well with you my friends, I have at times been surfing 5 minutes at a time and tried to keep in touch with as many as possible. Have a great weekend. Much Love Avril xx
