What A Contrast!

Apart from the nausea and the sore throat, the earache and the antibiotics, I think I could get used to having an extra two days off work a week!  I managed to finish the thriller I have been reading (Die Trying by Lee Child) this morning, and I've had a crafty afternoon.

I've made two cards, one for the PASSION FOR PROMARKERS CHALLENGE (which I haven't entered in months); their theme this week is Pink & Yellow -

I've used Kraftin' Kimmie's Bella The Artist, coloured of course with ProMarkers.  The pink dp is Crafts Too, and the yellow is Papermania but I've overstamped it with a Hero Arts spotty stamp in Memento Rose Bud.  Sentiment is Craftwork Cards and the buttons are from my long lost button box (yay me, I found it).

This afternoon's second card is a because I felt like it card - I've had this Being Together stamp from Stampavie (Gillian Roberts) for a while but this is its first inking.

Image painted with distress inks.  Papers are all Basic Grey Marjolaine and the blue pearls are from stash.  Photo doesn't show it well (looks like dirty smudges) but I chalked the sky and the grass around the image.  Martha Stewart border punch to finish off.

My earlier post today is here, CraftyCatz and Cupcakes, if you are interested.

Thanks for popping over to see me - unless I have a relapse I'll be back at work tomorrow but there will be a scheduled post on Thursday morning.

Hugs, Sxx
