To be in with a chance to win these goodies you need to do 3 things.

Mami Doodles Challenge #42 - For a Loved One

The challenge over on Mami Doodles for the next 2 week was chosen by Lisa & it is

 The prize for this challenge is the latest 3 Mami Doodles images & they are

Double Bed

Plus another Mami Doodles image of your choice.
The challenge will run until Thursday the 9th of February at midday (GMT)
Here is my DT card for this challenge. 
I used the image Double Bed. I knew what I would do with this image as soon as I seen it.
Every one has their own hobbies, for me it is crafting & for my DH it is pigeons. It is a bit of a joke between us that if I want him to listen to what I am saying I should start talking about pigeons lol.
I added feathers on his side of the bed as he leaves a trail of feathers
 (& some times pigeon poo (yuck!!!!) when he comes in from the loft, thankfully the boots come off before the poo gets walked into the house!!!!)
I used Core'dinations Chocolate Box card & embossed it with a Sizzix Texturz Plate then distressed it with my new Prima Distress tool (or foot pumice tool as a friend called it) I used a coordinating piece of Core'dinations Card & layered  some Idea-Ology Kraft Glassine paper (that I just crumpled to distress) on top of the Core'dinations card which was also distressed.
The image was coloured using ProMarkers & this is the ProMarker Combo I used!
Skin - Blush & Soft Peach
Hair - Black, Cool Grey 5,4,2 & 1
- Burnt Sienna, Henna & Caramel
Quilt & Pillows - Honeycomb & Oatmeal

Charity cards.

At Jackie Mooney's workshops for as long as I can remember Isobel has organised different swaps. This year we are doing charity cards. Isobel will give anyone who is taking part a little kit with some items in it. We have to make a card using the items & all the cards we make will go into a box & when we have enough then we will decide which charity to donate them to! As daffodil day is coming up & Bab's sells cards for the Irish Cancer Society all year round this months cards will be going to Bab's to sell for the ICS.
I've made 2 so far & have enough bits left over from my kits to do another 2.
Here are the ones I have finished!!
I got the idea for the little squares on the 1st one from a card Bab's made for the Sassy Cheryl challenge!

Everything used was supplied in the kit except for the actual card base!!
I used my ProMarkers to colour the images. 
The ProMarker Combo is
Gold, Canary & Buttercup
Forest Green & Leaf Green.
