If you don't have a blog then no prob, you can still play in our challenges by sharing your projects from public photo sharing sites which includes our Facebook Company Pages for Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda.  Please include our Challenge info and the link back to our challenge in your photo's description!  As long as the privacy setting for your photo is public you're good to go, see, it's so easy to join the fun!  FYI, you can't link up projects shared in closed Facebook groups! 

Marilyn is up today to get things kicked off.

I fell in love with this ART DECO ANGEL and had to use it.  I first stamped the image on a piece of Bristol paper and cut it out.  I then colored it with Prismacolor pencils and highlighted some areas with stickles.  The coaster is colored with inks then a little bit of glitter was sprinkled on.

Now it's your turn, are you up for the challenge?  We can't wait to see your projects!  
Mr Linky is still being a little contrary so please add your entries in the comments below.
You have until Midnight PST, December 31st!

Happy Stamping!
