Passion For Promarkers #113...

Good Morning...
Hope you are all well and had a lovely Monday - well as lovely as they can be!!  It was a sad one for us as we lost our little cat Malibu...she was 18 and hadn't been too well for a while so we'd been expecting it.  Thankfully she passed away in her sleep and we didn't have to do the horrible vet journey.


***************************************

I have two very different cards to share with you today. 
The first one is for the new challenge over at Passion For Promarkers and the theme this week chosen by our lovely teamie Debs is:-

''It's  A Pirate's Life''

We have the fabulous DigiStamp Boutique sponsoring us and one lucky winner will receive 6 digital images of their choice.

I used ''Pirate Sammy'' together with MME Rosy papers.  The papers, buttons and creative flatbacks are all available over at Crafty Emma's Store together with Promakers, fine nibs and liners which I used to do the stitching.

Challenges:-
1 - Creative Inspirations / Buttons & Stitching
2 - The Paper Shelter / Real Or Faux Stitching
3 - Pixie Dust / Boys Will Be Boys - Add Buttons Or Brads

***************************************

And my second card is to show you some beautiful papers that the very talented Michele Roo's has designed.  They are available as freebies over on her blog and for sale in her Etsy shop.
The image is from Crafts & Me...Ching-Chou Kuik's Fluttering Butterflies which a lovely friend bought me for my birthday back in February and shame on me it's been tucked away in a draw since then!!
The various flowers, pearls and pins are available over at Crafty Emma's Store.


Hugs Emma x
