I Love Promarkers and Die Cut Dreams


Set myself a right challenge here restricting myself to colouring with just brown and orange promarkers! I followed the sketch over at I love Promarkers and followed Susie's challenge of Chocolate Orange over at Die Cut Dreams. This card is for a friends son who is just heading off to University to study Actuarial Studies (finance, insurance, pensions, economics etc) yes I had to ask too lol. Not sure where the papers are from, got them as a kit through QVC many years ago. The image is Mikey from charmed cards. I made up a little collage of financial images for the small background square. Added a metal star, large eyelet brad and put Q inside for Queens University. Added some faux stitching.

Oh Pinky this a great male card. Love the orange and Mikey looks so cool. Glad you cleared up the definition of Actuarial, I had a glazed look in my eyes for a minute.

Hi Pinky

Great card that is perfect for the occasion. Those colours look lovely together.

It is strange but lots of colours I haven't been very "keen" on in the past have suddenly come to life now I am cardmaking.

Thanks for your comment on my new home card for Steve and Kate - you are right. We sometimes don't appreciate what we have until it is taken away - but I really hope that I don't take for granted all the people and things I have been blessed with.

I am a very fortunate person in that I can take pleasure in the simplest of things - and I am very grateful for this.

Take care

Love Jules xx
