Away for a few days visiting family.

I'll leave you with this photo of our little "bit" (as they say here in Scotland). As you can see, the beautiful 15th Century church and graveyard dominates the landscape. Our house is on the far right of the picture.

Have a lovely week everyone.

Passion for Promarkers #6 - Moss & Poppy

The colour theme this week at Passion for Promarkers is Moss and Poppy" and has been set by Karyn - but there's a twist!! You need to include something "tasty" on your creation too!!

I got this giant peg from the Craft Barn and have attached magnets to the back so it will stick to my fridge. Sitting Alva from Magnolia Stamps is coloured in the Moss and Poppy "Christmas" colours to be my little helper as this is going to hold my Christmas "To Do" List (and yes sad as it may be - I really do have one and I really do start thinking about it round about now!!).

I've painted the peg with Red Pepper Adirondack Acrylic Dabber paint and used Basic Grey paper to cover the front. Alva is sitting on some velvet ribbon and I've made little beaded swirls with Memory Thread. A plate of cookies and a Christmas pudding are my "something tasty" and a little "To Do" sign finish it off.

I'm really enjoying entering these great challenges and creating something other than a card - which is what I used to do all the time before I got a bit side-tracked!! There's a fantastic £10 voucher for her online shop donated by Joanna Sheen to win this week too so pop on over and check out the challenge blog!!
