Rosie and Ice Cream

Happy Thursday everyone...long time no see!! No excuses really other than life, family, animals and their associated issues!! 

Anyway I am here to share my DT piece for


where our theme this time is a good one...

Markers, Inks or pencils? Don't forget to tell us why!!

It will come as no surprise to my regular visitors that I had to choose Promarkers. They were my first love when I joined the world of rubber stamping and although I have dabbled with various other colouring mediums I always reach for the old Promarkers first. I love the solid tips, the way they lay down the colour and their seamless blendability which I have failed to achieve with other alcohol markers.




are our sponsor this time and I chose to showcase the delightful Rosie and Ice Cream. I thought being as it is the last day of June we might be crying out for something cool...not so much here in Dorset, especially after the deluge yesterday!! More Doodlebug Design paper and one of my MFT Blueprints sets got an outing for a change.

It would be lovely to see you at the challenge, it's perfect for everyone!!

I am joining in at these fab challenges

Your card is cute, colourful and rather delicious looking with all that ice cream! You've added such fab details on here with the stitching along the scallop border and the sweet little flags :-)
I am totally with you on the alcohol markers as nothing else blends quite the same way!
Big hugs, Kat xx

Very summery Sarah! Although the sun is shining it's too chilly for sitting out with an ice cream today!
Just got back from the vets as Max needed to be weighed (he was borderline for the next size in flea treatment). Poor thing recognised the car park as soon as the boot opened. :)
