Passion for Promarkers

Hi everybody. Still lots of lovely snow here in Edinburgh. We went out to Blantyre this afternoon to visit our favourite craft shop - Craft at Home. Had a really nice afternoon but it snowed again while we were there and it took absolutely ages to do what would normally be a 45 minute journey home. Never some lovely bits and pieces, another couple of Christmas presents and also had a lovely blether, lol. I also got the safe return of my daughter last night which was lovely as I had really missed her a lot...and yes, you've guessed it - she was driving me crazy today, lol. It's nice to see that she's not changed too much ;o)

Anyway, enough blethering done for today so...this has been made for the Passion for Promarkers challenge where the challenge is running untill 5th January and we are being asked to make "anything but a card - with a Christmas/New Year theme and also for the Allsorts challenge where the theme is also "Anything but a card". So, I have altered a diary which I picked up for 99p a while back. I thought it was going to be one of those buys that I never normally get round to doing but...I've done it. lol.

The image is a Sugar Nellie one and is, of course, coloured with promarkers - quite obvious considering the challenge it's for, lol. The ovals are cut with nesties on the Bug. The design paper is from a Christmas kit that I got as a present a couple of years back. I have added stickles to the fur on Santa's coat and hat and also to his holly. The holly in the top corner was done using the tutorial on the WOJ inspirations and tutorials blog.

I think thats every thing, although I have now most likely forgtten something. Thanks fortaking the time to look.
