Card for Marie Curie Appeal 2010

It's that time of the year again when a lot of us make cards for the Marie Curie Appeal.  I like to make 50 and have a little way to go to reach that yet but I am determined.  I have used some backing papers I was given by a friend so I am unsure of the make of them.  I have used my new Kraftin' Kimmie stamp - isn't she funny - wish I had a waistline like that!!!  I have coloured her in with my Promarkers.  I heard all the hype and resisted for so long but I can't see life without Promarkers as they are wonderful.

This card fits the following challenges:

Stamp Something Challenge Blog - something to make you giggle - well that waistline of the Kraftin' Kimmie certainly makes me laugh and want to dream ...........
Incy Wincy Designs Challenge Blog - Colour me wonderful using your favourite mediums - mine at the moment have to be my Promarkers
Sophisticats Challenge Blog - Spring
Papertake Weekly Challenge Blog - Pretty Pink Papertake
Fab n Funky Challenge Blog - Blue, green and white
Creative Card Crew Challenge Blog - Punch it
Simon Says Stamp - Punch it
Raising the Bar Challenge Blog - Use something that you have been given - I am using the backing papers I was given therefore I don't know the make of the them
Crazy 4 Challenges - Pretty in Pink
Artful Inkables - Think Spring
Created by Hand - Waiting for Spring
Stampin' Sisters in Christ - Touch of green
Totally Gorjuss Challenge Blog - Dimension - the stamped image is on foam pads along with the faux leaves in the corner

Pile it On Challenge Blog - Warm wishes - who doesn't want the warmer weather and in the meantime a cheery coloured card like this will have to do!!
