Passion for Promarkers with just a Whiff of Joy!

Good evening peeps.  Passion for Promarkers have a fab blog hop this week and want us to use some "old and new" things on our creations.  My image which is coloured entirely with Promarkers actually fits both of those categories because it is one I have had for quite a long time - a fabulous freebie from Whiff of Joy of Henry Spider Mouse - but I have never used it before and therefore it's new too!  My Fiskars sentiment is very new as is the little bit of DCWV Argyle paper whilst the red and blue flowered Sizzix paper is so old it is almost antediluvian!
I am combining my challenge with the one over at Whiff of Joy who have a really fab sketch.   In addition to Henry Spider Mouse, who has added dimension around his forefoot, hand and whiskers, I have pinched some cupcakes normally held by Henry on a different WOJ stamp.  I coloured just the cupcakes on the stamp with my Promarkers missing out Henry and his arm and just printed it twice before colouring it and adding a bit of Stickles sprinkles on top. His spider web catching the cupcakes is made from a bit of a bag which contained halloween candy.  I knew it would come in useful! 
This card is for my brother in law hence the more masculine colour combo and lack of flowers and bows but the sketch is still very much in evidence.  I'm sorry about the picture quality.  These winter days leave so little daylight for decent photography!
Before I go - I have to tell you that we have a blog hop and a DT call over at Sweet Stampin so why not join in!
