All Creatures Great and Small at the Passion for Promarkers Challenge

Good Morning my lovely crafty friends.
I hope all is good with you, if not I'm sending you big hugs and wishing you well.

Today is the start of a new Passion for Promarkers Challenge
This week our theme picked by the lovely Jane is
All Creatures Great and Small
For this challenge we are sponsored by the wonderful DigiStamp Boutique
Prize for the very lucky winner - £10 voucher

I made this card for my Dad, he is a retired newsagent and he loves dogs so I knew I had the perfect DigiStamp Boutique from Murphy Set 1 
Murphy has mostly been coloured with Flexmarkers, I find the brush nibs easier to use when colouring fur. I have layered up his newspaper (although you cannot see it on my photo).


Items Used:
Digi Stamp - DigiStamp Boutique Murphy Set 1 coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Papers - Bo Bunny C'est La Vie and Echo Park Dots and Stripes
Dies - Joanna Sheen Signature Dies Star Banner
Die-Namics Stitched Circle Stax
Spellbinders Labels 22
Sentiment - computer generated

If you take a look at the Passion for Promarkers Challenge you will see the wonderful creations made by the rest of this week's design team.

I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

Time Out Challenge - Birthday - optional twist masculine
Crafty Catz - Animals
Polkadoodles -Animal Magic
DigiStamp Boutique - April Customer Challenge
Thank you for taking the time to stop and look at my card today, I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make
bye for now
hugs
