SCSC ~ Christmas In June

The challenge at Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge this week is 'Christmas in June'

I have used one of my Teddy Bo stamps and coloured with Promarkers and Prisma pencils. I do enjoy making Christmas cards, but always leave it until the last minute then end up rushing or buying shop ones lol..

I always give my cards to special friends who I know will appreciate them. I remember once giving one to my brother and he said "Can't you afford to but cards now!!" Needless to say he doesn't get one now.

Medium ~ Promarker & Prisma pencils
Papers ~ Echo Park ( I think)
Tools ~ EK Border punch, Marianne Creatables oval die
Embellishments ~ Ribbon SU! Craftwork cards sentiment, Pearls from stash.

We are being sponsored this week by Wendy.

SCSC ~ The Professionals

This weeks Secret Crafters Challenge is 'The Professionals' eg. Fireman,Nurse etc
I have chosen a 'Fireman' this is Teddybo _057 coloured with markers and Prisma pencils. The photo isn't to good as the weather has been so dull lately, in fact the last few days have been dreadful rain, rain and more rain. I am not very happy with my card today, feeling like I can't get anything right at the minute! I will try and get a better photo when the weather improves (if it improves!)
