My final GD post for I love Promarkers

How quickly June flew by as here we are at my final week as the Guest Designer for the I love Promarkers Challenge Blog. I have really enjoyed my 4 week stint and I hope you have enjoyed seeing my 4 creations. Today's theme over at the challenge is to use a Blue and Pink combo. I love this colour combination and use it a lot. I am not a pink girl so I rarely make a pink on pink card but with other colours it looks great.
 I am still in holiday inspired mode so I have featured shells and sea themed embellies.

Here it is

The stamp is called Little Mermaid 2. Isn't she a cutie and I love the little seahorse too ;0)  You will notice that I am using another sentment from my crafty Lili of the Valley win. These are the grungy wishes.
I coloured her up with my Promarkers. I found the "netting" in my stash, it is actually used to tie up wedding favours...I have no idea where I got it from. It was not from my daughters wedding last year. It's amazing what you find sometimes ;0)
I have used pink and blue Baker's twine.
You will also spot another of my Craftwork Cards candi hand made flowers here too amongst the shells.
The dies are Spellbinders for the image and the others are all Cheery Lynn.

The shells I collected from Kaminia beach on Kephalonia from our recent holiday....I  can show you where...

Yes it was bliss ;0)

I would like to enter my little mermaid card into the following challenges; ( I will link these up later as I am at work when this challenge/ post goes live)

 I would also like to mention that the Ribbon Girls are hosting another of their generous giveaways here.  Do pop on over and join the fun.

I thought I would also show a little montage of the 4 cards I made as Guest Designer for I Love Promarkers.....
Do you have a favourite?

I have amazed to have been been offered yet another Guest Design spot for July.  I am very touched that people think my cards are worthy of this. This time I am flying across the pond to join the girls of the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog. I will be posting my cards for them on Tuesdays throughout July. And don't worry I will be back with my Turtles post from holiday at the weekend ;0) Life has just been so hectic since I got back from my holiday.

So my card is a thank you card, firstly to Karen of  I Love Promarkers, secondly to LOTV for my amazing prize and last but not least to everyone who visits me here and takes the time to comment.

Thank you -  it means a lot.

Back soon,

Bye for now,

  7. How lovely to include some of your holiday shells! Another beauty Jane and lovely to see them all together and all so different! I do love the shells and I love the colours in number three, number two has a very cute kitty but I think my favourite has to be number one, for obvious reasons but I love the natural colours too.
    Well done on all of them!

  8. Those cards are just stunning, Jane, and I am not a bit surprised you've been offered an another spot! Your designs are just perfect, and as hard it was to choose a favorite, the chubby kitty has stolen my heart!

    Have a lovely last week of June, sunshine and hot air from us (it's +29,7!) just in case you should need it!

  15. I love your sweet new mermaid card, Jane, and the shells from your blissful holiday beach make it even more special! I love all your cards for the latest challenge, and really can't pick a favourite as they are all so different and each one has features I like! You have been a very busy bee, and have a real way of putting together colour and embellishments.....(I know what you mean about finding the netting in your stash, it is always surprising to me to find useful things in mine and not know where they came from!) Wishing you a happy and relaxing weekend.
