Anything Goes @ I ❤️ ProMarkers

Good Morning to you all,
I'm sorry I'm a bit late with my DT entry for this fortnights challenge over at
I ❤️ ProMarkers

It's busy days, although I have a few days off from work - last night I made fish cakes (finished very late), now I'm baking bread and knitting woolen socks (my son is engaged in fishing this winter, and fishermen need real woolen stockings, I'm told...)

Well, back to the challenge
The theme for this fortnight is 
Anything Goes     

Our sponsor is  Dr Digi's House Of Stamps
Their Prize is 2 digi image of winner’s choice.
How you interpret this is completely up to you, as long as you make sure you follow the theme and you must use either ProMarkers, FlexMarkers, AquaMarkers or Trias on your work, if not you entry will be deleted.

I couldn't resist to use two of the stamps the DT got from Dr. Digi's House Of Stamps, so for this challenge I have two cards to show you :)
The first one is a christmas pocket card.
To not bore you with too much reading I'll just show you pictures of the card:

My second card is a birthday card in a kind of retro style
(a few years ago my daughter found a picture of a cassette and said I've seen these things in grandma's attic - LOL)
Doesn't the papers just fit perfect to the image??? I even managed to mirror the image before printing...
Enough talk! Pictures:

Use Something New @ I ❤️ ProMarkers

Good Morning, and a Happy New Year to you all!
I hope you've all had a wonderful christmas holiday - I know I've had. Lots of lazy days spent with the family, doing most nothing - love such days!
Of course I have spent a little time crafting. A little cardmaking, coloring, some knitting and some tidying and organizing in my craft room - absolutely required!

Well, today it's Wednesday and time for a new challenge over at
I ❤️ ProMarkers

This year we have a few changes on the challengeblog:
We are going to go to a fortnightly challenge.
 Week one showcasing team A Art-work
Week two showcasing team B Art-work
The challenge will now close on the second Monday at 8pm.

Now onto this week's challenge 
The theme for this Challenge is  
Use something NEW
 (i.e. New stash)   
Our sponsor is  The Paper Shelter
Their Prize is a $15 voucher
My card this week is a birthday card for a boy.
I've used the image My Racing Car from The Paper Shelter
The new stuff I've used here is the DPs from Papirdesign, the Star dies and the drinking straw - oh, I love drinking straws!
The image is coloured with ProMarkers, around it I sprinkled on a little Frantage Chunky Black and Aged Silver. The Paper Edges are inked with DistressInk HickorySmoke.
Textstamps used are from Papirdesign and Storyteller.
