New papers and new Promarkers :) One I forgot to post

This post was written a couple of weeks ago, before my mother took ill.
Surprisingly and thankfully she has improved very slightly but is unfortunately still very ill and weak.
Thanks to all who have sent their best wishes and prayed for her. Please continue to do so because she really needs that and I appreciate it very much indeed.

One I forgot to post.. I made this a while ago for a friend's birthday. It was one of those big birthdays with a "0" at the end and I didn't want to have it on the outside so I printed the special age on the inside.

Nothing brings a smile to my face on a cold wet morning like a little delivery from the postman - especially when it's crafting goodies. I've just received the new Limited Edition Spring/Summer Promarkers from Letraset:))

Even the names of the new colours were enough to make me want to rip the pack open and get started..

I picked one of my Fuchsia stamps (Pick of the Bunch by Tonic Studios) and used Fresh Bloom, Peony and Spring Lilac for the flowers with Green Shoot for the leaves and stems.

The beautiful new Tonic Studios paper matched perfectly so I matted and layered it onto New Lilac cardstock from Papermill and added some more of the beautiful ribbon which I treated myself to from Ribbonbox and added  a lovely die cut - Trailing Leaves by Crafts Too from Craftbag .
The butterfly at the side is the Tonic Studios Multi Detail butterfly.

There will be more....because when I get the Promarkers going I don't like to stop :)


  1. So glad to hear your mum has improved, Ruth, and I very much hope she continues to do so. Will keep her in my prayers.

    Your card is absolutely beautiful. I love the fuchsias, of course, and the colours are so pretty. The new Promarkers are gorgeous, aren't they? That die has just gone on my wish list too!
