Smile and say Goodbye

Smile 2014
I’m here today with a sadden heart. This is our last Challenge #95 for Color Me Creative and the theme is all about FRIRNDS and this challenge ends on July 11th, 2014. I have been with the community for 4 years, I do have to tell you. I remember when I first found Suzanne (God Sent) when she told me what the numbers and the letters on the copic markers meant she made me so happy and things started to make since at least a little at that time because I was buying my markers because I loved the colors. I did not know they need to work together, then when she started the classes I was right their to sign up and I learned so much from Suzanne.  The community will be their for awhile but my dear friend Suzanne has new adventures.

Birthday Pin

I used Stampin up punches but you can use any punches you want. The first one is 1 3/4 (scalloped), second one is 1 1/2 (round) and the third one is 1 1/4 (scalloped). You only need to punch one of each.

You can use any colors and shapes. I stamped the sentiment on the last one before I put the pin together. The ribbon would be nice if you could match it to your colors. Depending on the size of the pin cut the ribbon so it will fit just an inch 1 or 2 under the pin and glue it to the back. You can sponge around the edges of all or just one (up to you). I stamp the Happy Birthday with Memento tuxedo black ink. The stamp I have no idea who made it (sorry).

You can use a pin (safety) to put it on the Birthday person. As far as the sentiment you can make these pins for all kinds of occasions, it is up to you. Enjoy and and have some fun with it.

Gorgeous bag, Pat!! Love your coloring and I, too, learned how to use copics from Suzanne Dean. She made it easy and she made it make sense, just like you said! I wish her the best!

Aww, that's sad to see something so wonderful come to an end, but I know it's all for a good reason. I just LOVE what you've done with this bag Pat. Your coloring is always spot on and my favorite is the red little polka dot patches :) Beautiful job.

You're great at coloring, Pat, you sure have learnt how to combine different shades and colors well! I like what you did to the space around the image as well. It's a wonderful gift wrap project!
