Welcome to challenge week 2

Wow we were completely bowled over by the response to last week's "anything goes" challenge, you all certainly love your promarkers lol! We have had over 140 entries. We will be announcing the winners of the super duper mega prize on Thursday, so don't forget to check back.

Right onto this week's challenge. We want you make a project with the following promarker colours:

Apple & Pastel Pink

Don't forget that from this week on you are allowed to combine our challenge with any other challenges you wish to participate in. You are allowed to use other similar colours for shading and skin/hair colours but the predominant colours must be the challenge colours.

The lucky winner this week will win the WOJ stamp "shy willow" donated by Denise

To inspire you this week the DT have been busily creating and this is what they have come up with:


Caryn 500
Debbi 500

Denise 500
Gina 500

Helen 500

Ida - 500

Maria 500

Michele 500

Natalie 500
sarah 500

Sue 500

Don't forget you have until 9am next Tuesday to enter your project. Please leave a comment with a link to your card in the comments box,

This week we are going to start giving you "hints and tips" on "how to get the best" from your ProMarkers so don't forget to pop back through out the week :)

We can't wait to see what you come up with this week. Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Gina & Denise x

Oh the DT samples are just out of this world and I'm so glad we can combine challenges this week. I have so many friends with challenges blogs now that it's becoming impossible to support them each week. At least being able to combine gives me a fighting chance. I bought apple green in readiness for this challenge (as any Sheenies with remember) so will certainly be joining in.
