I'm afraid I'm a day late with my posting due to illness, but it's worth waiting for as there are some gorgeous new releases at Digital Delights - Nursery Rhyme Sets.Our images are now available in both JPEG and PNG formats! There are also full colour versions of each set available. PNG files are transparent and wonderful for layering and creating scenes as well as printing your images on colored cardstock! See my card at the top of the post using the new sketch atDelightful Sketches. I've used the lovely Mother Goose coloured with pro-markers. I've added a number 1 on the nursery rhyme book for a first birthday.The beige backing paper has the alphabet all over it. I've added some ribbon and gems from stash, but kept it all fairly simple. The rest of the DT have come up with some fabulous cards to inspire you.Our Sponsor for this sketch is the fabulous store: My Favorite Thingswith a $15 gift voucher as the prize.

We have a bit of exciting news at I ♥ ProMarkers...every month we look through all your blogs at all the stunning entries you all have.

For this challenge there is no sketch......We want to see some spots and stripes on your cards..these can be the main focus of the card or a simple accent, the decision is yours. This will be the last challenge before Christmas, we re-start again on the 13th January, our finalists from this challenge will be announced on the 12th Jan so can all entries to be on the I ♥ ProMarkers blog by the 11th Jan. Of course..another fab prize of a set of Promarkers and bleed proof pad.!

I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
