PanPastels and the Tim Holtz Rosette Dies.

Morning Fans,
              More PanPastels today! The PanPastel Challenge theme this week is 'Sport'.

I have taken this opportunity to show you how 'Vibrant' and 'Rich' the PanPastels colours are by showing you these 'For the Winners' Rosettes!

I used my Cricut to cut out the main shapes and a couple of Tim Holtz Rosette dies in different sizes and just plonked them in the middle of each one!

Every Rosette and the main Rosette shapes are coloured using PanPastels... so bright and cheerful !
Please enter a card/tag/or other project into our challenge... you could win a fabulous trial set of PanPastels  to kick start your addiction to them !

I'm addicted, but with no side effects, unlike coffee, where I need to wee all the blooming time!
When we go out on a trip all the public loo's are 'plumbed'  into our navigation thingy! I'm seriously thinking of publishing a review of every loo I have visited in Great Britain... it's most of 'em!

This card, is also made using my PanPastels.

Blues and Greens swiped over some smooth white card stock and a very light mist of a cheapo hairspray to set the pans colour.

The stamps are from my favourite (for the moment!) Dylusions Range.

A 'Big Bite'  helped me make a few holes in my card along with a white gel pen to highlight a few areas.

I hope you're having a great weekend.

Today is going to be VERY important  for me ... I am ...wait for it!....Cracking open my Tim Holtz Distress Markers! ... I will make a card while I am watching the F1 Spanish GP.  Deep, deep joy!

Ooooo too much excitement in one day ... hot flushes here I come!

Thanks for popping along to my blog today. I will post my Distress Markers card later if I finish it.

Thanks also for the very kind comments you leave me .. they are valued and appreciated very much.

BTW ..... I know a lot of you are great fans of Ikki's from the famous Ikki's Cuttlebug Cupboard.
Well, Eileen/Ikki has kindly contacted me on Facebook and wants to feature one of my cards in her Friday Followers Gallery... delighted or wot!

 Not sure when, but I will let you know. Have a look at Ikki's blog .... super stuff indeed!

Super card Eileen, you've once again excelled yourself, you're really brightening up the dull summer days with spectacular colours for us blogging news, you well deserve it, we'll see you on tv demonstrating yet... BTW thanks for your birthday wishes, had a fab weekend, visiting Wells in Somerset and had to visit the Clarks Village didn't I, but alas didn't see anything that took my fancy. I look forward to seeing more cards using the TH markers, fancied buying some with my birthday money but will wait and see folks reactions to them first, before I jump in head first. Dee xxx
