Flowers for You

Oh my look at Old Calvin.  He has some flowers for someone.  Wonder who his sweetie is?  He is so debonair.  He can bring you some flowers if you click here.  He will pop right over from the Make It Crafty store to your house.  Check out his friends while you are there.  You will also find the most amazing backgrounds to fulfill your every coloring dream.

I had some free time and the need to color now that the Christmas to do list is finished.  I belong to the Make It Crafty FB group and their sister blog, Make It Colorful.   I like this group because it challenges you to expand your coloring skills. The gals there give you constructive criticism (if you ask) and help you to master coloring.  I decided to combine both group's challenges with my card.  FB challenge for December is a sketch and Make It Colorful wants to see red and green.    

Their are two levels to the Make It Colorful Challenge -easy and hard.  This month hard challenge is to add texture.  I drew a pattern in his tie and pants for texture.  I also used my blender pen to add texture to his slippers.  

Make It Crafty FB Group is having a DT call too.  The call ends December 31, but if you hustle you can still enter.
