ProMarker Card and Reminder

Just wanted to remind you folks that tonight at midnight is the deadline to enter for the ProMarker giveaway!

This is a card I made at Stamp Club this week.

The image is from Stampin Up though I don't know the name of it, I do believe it was from 2005.

The papers are all Stampin Up as well. The cardstock and patterned papers are from the last catalog's In Color's collections. During the latest sale I think I ended up with around 5 packs of the Crushed Curry. I like the color but it is going to take me some time to use it all. Good thing paper doesn't expire.

The insides sentiment reads:
Life's not about waiting for the
storm to pass and the sun to shine ---
it's about learning to dance in the rain!

I was going to put part of the sentiment on the front of the card but then I decided there wasn't enough room so I didn't.

The coloring was done with colors that aren't included in the set for the giveaway since I couldn't remember exactly what colors were in the set and I was at Stamp Club and didn't have access to look.

I do find that I am going to need more practice with the markers, but especially in very small areas. But sometimes I wonder if it isn't that I am just too picky *okie doesn't think ANYONE would ever label okie picky or difficult, at least if they want to NOT get smacked upside the head*.

If you haven't entered the giveaway go to THIS POST to leave your comment and contact info to enter.

Well I am off to my craft table to see if I can actually cut a layout that I designed in Design Studio and uploaded to my Gypsy. If it works I will be posting it tomorrow. If it doesn't you may hear me cussing all the way in Oklahoma!


  1. Glad you posted this! I had forgotten that you gave me some of these images you'd stamped.

    I like the light area in the center of the colored images. I'll have to practice on getting that right.

  14. Such a sweet stamp...reminds me of old Dick and Jane pictures. The sentiment is also wonderful. Did you make it up yourself or did the sentiment come with that stamp? Stamp Club is so fun. You keep coming up with some very nice stamps and cards from it.
