We have started our challenge #57 over at Color Me Creative. Don’t you just love all these colors. The challenge ends on Dec 7th, 2012 at 8:00pm. I’m going to let you in on a little secret our next challenge is a  BIG ONE…. Suzanne has been talking about A HOLIDAY BASH mmmmm what could she be thinking…. She is also talking about BIG PRIZES!!! OMGoodness if you know Suzanne like I know Suzanne when she talks about big prizes and lots of them, remember last year at this time (Christmas is Suzanne favorite time of the year) she gave away so many prizes and there were so many winners. Have I got you excited yet???? Can’t tell you can more but be watching out for our next challenge. I can’t wait…
**Non-Traditional Holiday Colors**

color ANY image ANY way you like but there CAN BE NO RED-GREEN HOLIDAY COLORS USED, WE WANT TO SEE NON-TRADITIONAL COLORS USED in the image somewhere!!  Our sponsor is:

The image I used is called Candy Cane Jingles.
Merry Merry Christmas left 2012
The paper used is from Peppermint Forest stack from Joanns. Added one jingle bell to his hat. The gem stone gift is from Christmas crafts.
Merry Merry Christmas right 2012
The sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts.
Merry Merry Christmas inside 2012
The gold Christmas tree ribbon I have had for a long time and I just love them added a couple of gold snowflakes from Michaels.  Punched out a snowflake. Have an area for the message or a stamped sentiment.
Merry Merry Christmas markers
Copic markers used to color the image. Also used spica colors olive, gold and melon. Gelly roll silver and gold.
Merry Merry Christmas flower
The poinsettia I cut out with the Silhouette Cameo. That was the easiest flower I have ever done.  The center of the flower is Suze Weinberg’s Mini Mosaics.
Merry Merry Christmas sentiment
I did some Faux stitching around the sentiment and the image. These gold corners I have had forever, they are just paper and I have no idea where they came from.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
