I am so excited to be a part of this amazing blog hop. I still can not believe that I am a Guest Designer, it is such an honor for me to be among these talented people, thank you Melissa for thinking so much of work to ask me to be a guest designer.

It's a big celebration for the Crafty Creations it is their 100th challenge, so please make sure you stop at all the blogs as there is some incredible talent and inspiration along the way.  Don't forget to leave comments on each blog because will be prizes on some of the blogs and 3 lucky blog hop participants will win a prize at the end of the hop, too!!

OK, so if you got here from Saskia you are on the right track
and your nest stop is Sharon and I am sure she has some beautiful things for you to look at.

Now on to the 100th Challenge, the CCC 100th celebration challenge is no ordinary has several elements that needed to be followed.
There are 3 parts to this challenge: A sketch to follow, a color combo plus add a recycled element or item! Stop by Crafty Creations Challenges for all the details and come a play along! Show us what you got, I love seeing everyone's creations. There will be 2 winners and fabulous prize packages for entries into this challenge!
Here is the card I made for this challenge.

I chose a digital image from Meljen's Designs called Chili Chihuahua, isn't he cute. Visit Whimsy Stamps to shop for her images, there are some fantastic ones, she is a very talented artist and they also have other designers.  I colored "Chili" using my ProMarkers that I won back in November, an entire set of all 148 colors!  I used Ivory and Sandstone, with a touch of Cinnamon for the dog.  For the sombrero I used French Navy, Blue Pearl, Amethyst, and Plum, the chilis were colored with Berry Red & Poppy, with Forest Green for the leaves. That covered the colors we needed to use for the challenge, also the papers are using those colors, and my added recycled element which is the strip of reddish ribbon that was from a Christmas present a few years back.   Just to add a touch of silly I added the googlie eyes, I thought he needed that!    Here is a close up to see his little silly face.

The plum paper strip and the half circle are pearl like plum color and the half circle I Cuttlebugged with one of the folders from the Pagoda set.  This will be my brother-in-laws 70th birthday card, so the "Ay, caramba" (computer generated) and here is the inside

I sure hope you like my little chihuahua.  I so enjoyed using this image as I had a chihuahua going up.  

Now I have a couple of prizes to giveaway, Letraset ProMarkers has donated a set of 5 markers for me to give away and also Tiffany Doodles has donated five digital images of your choice to use those markers on.  Be sure you check out her website to see all of images she has to offer, you will have a hard time picking out just 5 of them.  Now to be eligible to win this prize you do not have to become a follower, although I would be absolutely thrilled if you did, just leave a comment on this post and a winner will be drawn January 11th from all the comments using
