Passion For Promarkers - Make It Sparkle.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I brought some stronger cream for my coldsores yesterday but they are still tingling away.The whole left hand side of my top lip is covered in them so drinking a brew is quite funny.
Good news though is i am not at work today so hopefully i may get a little lie in.
So on to why i am here today, we have a new challenge this morning at the Passion For Promarkers Challenge.
The theme this week has been chosen by the lovely Eileen who would like you to `Make It Sparkle`, simples :D.
