WELCOME TO THE PASSION FOR PROMARKERS BLOGHOP!!

Good morning all.

Over at Passion for promarkers challenge this week we are celebrating the change of design teams with a blog hop. I’m sure you are as excited as I am as there are lots of lovely goodies up for grabs!! We also have a few new faces(including me,eek) on the design team so I hope you will leave them a nice comment to welcome them .

Firstly if you’ve arrived at my blog from Michele`s blog you are in the right place, if not return to the challenge blog and start your hop again. Our blog hop challenge will last for 2 weeks so you have plenty of time to enter your card (or cards) and hop around the whole design team.

Our challenge theme for the next two weeks is “old & new” i.e. a brand new stamp/digi with old papers etc. Please can you tell us your old and new items in your post. Don’t forget to use your promarkers or aqua markers to be included in our prize draw.

 so heres my card :D

my new products used are the fab stamp by cc designs, sweet november and pearl glimmer mist which has been sprayed onto the embossing.my old products are the embossing folder and the fantasy film/acetate for the sea.




As you’ve read on the challenge blog the design team are also offering some candy of their own, so please leave me a comment on this post and I will randomly draw a winner for a promarker prize courtesy of Letraset.

You also have a “mystery word” to find and my contribution is the letter "E". Make a note of my letter and then proceed to Sarah for the next part of the hop. If you get lost on the hop at all just return to the challenge blog for full directions.


I just want to let you know the wonderful prizes up for grabs for our blog hop challenge:


Letraset are offering a full set of Aqua Markers to one lucky winner *woohoo*.



Wendy at The Secret Crafter is offering a Basic Grey ‘Oliver’ paper pad



Emma at Crafty Emma’s Store is offering a 12 pack of Aqua Markers




Sally-Ann from DigiStamp Boutique is offering 6 digi images from her shop







I hope you will be able to join in with our challenge and also have fun taking part in our blog hop. Don’t forget you need to “hop” on over to Sarah now and leave her a comment and collect your next “mystery” letter. Have fun and good luck!

well theres my secret out too.thanks to the fab ladies for asking me to join their very talented team.
have fun on the hop and i look forward to seeing all your fab entries :D
