Lil Patch of Crafty Friends C#97- A

Happy New Year!
Today is my first blog post in the new year. We started a new challenge at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends. The sponsor is: Imagine That digistamp
I was given a big pack to work with called Flamingo Beach. I mean look at all the stuff it comes with. :)
I had bought Hide Tides stamp set from Stampin Up quite awhile back and thought it would be perfect to use for a scene with the flamingo. I also used Studio R that came with an assortment of stamps and used the little sailboat with it. The stitched clouds came from Jaded Blossom.
I colored the flamingo with Copics and Faber Castell colored pencils. They seem to have brighter more vibrant colors in those pencils.
Come join us, there is a great prize to be won! :)
Hugs, and happy crafting!
Sandy.

Pink Gems Challenge- #233- Anything Goes

Merry Christmas!!!!! :)
This will be my last post before Christmas so I wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! Anyone out traveling, I pray for safe travels!
Today starts a new challenge at A Gem of A Challenge!
It is always "Anything Goes", but we were asked on the dt to make anything but a card.
I decided to make Christmas tags. We have gift bags under the tree with our gifts in each one so I thought it would be great to put a tag with our names on them to set on top of each bag. My youngest daughter liked the idea so much that she made two tags for me also so that I have a tag for both of my gift bags under the tree as well. :) The scalloped shape at the bottom of each tag, I used a Dutch Doobadoo Shaped Art and just used a piece to form the scallop. I colored each one with my Copics.
Here are the images I used: Snowman Pom Pom, Snowman Lantern, Cocktail Chilly, and Snow Friends.
Shopping is made more easy now with Polkadoodles selling some of Pink Gem images now. :)
There are great prizes to be won, so I hope you come and participate.
Hope to see you there!
Hugs, and happy crafting!
Sandy.

Today starts another challenge at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends.
It's always an Anything Goes challenge. It runs for two weeks.
The sponsor this time around is: Fabrika Fantasy. The prize is 3 images.
I chose this wonderful image called Mighty Wizard. I have to say, I was a bit nervous after I chose this image, but I think he turned out rather nicely! One of my granddaughters loves anything to do with Harry Potter, so I had her in mind when I chose this image. I will just save this card until her birthday roles around again.
Come join in this week and show us your wonderful projects!
Hugs, and happy crafting!
