Passion for Promarkers...

Morning All,

I hope you are all well. Im here today to show you my latest card for Passion For Promarkers
This week our theme is go Digital. 
 We are sponsored by 2 Cute to Ink. 
 This card is for our Lovely Pharmacist who has left to work in Pastures New. Nothing was ever too much to ask of her so Dad suggested I make a card and we send it as a family to say Thanks for all the help over the last 10 years. Thought the wee Mices getting their meds was a fab idea for her card and I used another couple of the great buttons I bought the other week for embellishments. 
 Card Recipe
6 x 6 Card
Papers Forever Friends.
Coloured with Promarkers.
Buttons from Ebay.

I really struggled getting this card done. My craft desk is a midden and I was working without an daylight light. I really miss it so will need to save my pennies to get a new bulb. 

Hopefully my living room will be finished soon. Just the decorative touches and the tidy up to go!!! It feels like the longest time to decorate a room ever. The walls and woodwork all needed 2 coats of paint. No idea why. Wonder if its so we have to buy more???? 

Enjoy the rest of the week,

Love and Sparkles
