The Crafters Cafe Challenge Blog ~ Red and lots of it!

The Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog 
Hello fellow Crafters:

Oh my it is December!!!!! Time is running out to get everything ready for Christmas. I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We were all stuffed and crazy me even went out in the craziness of late Thursday night. To get what you ask, a carpet shampooer! Yay what a buy, lol. Ok now lets get back to the fun stuff... Today I am posting for The Carfter's Cafe Challenge Blog and our sponsor for this week is Limited Runs. I chose the image called Santa's Stuck.

Oh weih, es ist schon Dezember!!! Weihnachten steht schon fast vor der Tuer und es ist nicht mehr viel Zeit fuer alles fertig zumachen fuer die Weihnachszeit. Ich hoffe das meine Freunde in Amerika einen schoenen Thanksgiving hatten. Wir hatten viel zu essen und ich war sogar ganz verrueckt am Abend des Thanksiving auch kaufen zu gehen. Der groesste Verkaufstag der Geschaeft hier in Amerika ist der Freitag nach Thanksgiving. Wir nennen diesen Tag hier auch Black Friday. Die Geschaefte haben die besten Preise fuer diesen Tag und sehr viele Menschen gehen an diesem Abend einkaufen fuer Weihnachtsgeschenke. Nun gut jetzt aber mal wieder zurueck zu meinem Post. Heute ist mein Post fuer The Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog. Unser Sponsor ist Limited Runs. Mein Digi das ich mir ausgesucht habe heisst Santa's Stuck.

This was such a fun image to color! I tried myself for the first time on bricks. I like the way it turned out. 

Der Stemple hat soviel Spass gemacht zu malen! Ich habe auch zum ersten Mal Ziegelsteine gemalt. Ich mag wie es aussieht.

Here are the Copic colors that I used for the image:
Hier sind die Copic Farben die ich fuer diesen Stemple benutzt habe:

Bricks/ Ziegel: E41, E43, E47, E49
