5 challenges in 1!

First...GREETINGS FROM CORONA, CA! :)

Just when I think I can't possibly outdo myself in challenges...last one was 4 in 1...now I added 1 more!!! :O Can you tell I like to more than double dip when it comes to challenges? LOL! I do!

Anywho...I'm here at the in-laws home house sitting without Oscar and I'm bummed. They left to Bakersfield and will be back in the morning. So I brought with me my stuff to craft or else I'll go crazy! My MIL was laughing because she thought my craft cart was my luggage bag and said to me that I was only staying for one day. She cracked up even more when I showed her what was inside! XD I know...nuts huh? Still it's entertaining me while the kids are playing with my BIL's Playstation and XBox. He's 35/36 and no wife or kids...so you know he has toys! LOL! So yeah I'm in the back room on LV's laptop and I completed the challenges for 5 of the ones I'm working on.

The challenges are:
1. Anyone For Anya? To be "patriotic" and use the colors or your country flag. I didn't go with my Ol' US of A...instead I did my native country...Mexico! They're perfect Christmas colors too...lol! I could have easily used Spains colors too...but my heart is closer to Mexico.

2 AND 3. Club Anya's Mystery Monday AND I Wanna Be Just Like {Anita Hovey} For Mystery Monday we're to make a "snow" card. Well...I used Snow from Miss Anya AND added snow to her standing ground. Then I CASED Anita's card LO which is also in conjunction with...

4. JUGS sketch: The sketch resembles Anita's card so much I had to incorporate a bit of each WITHOUT leaving the LO out. What's similar in both? The JUGs sketch has that lower panel that I combined with Anita's lower sentiment and ribbon. The image panel are also very similar. The only difference is that the JUGs sketch is to the side rather than in the middle. I'm sure you can tell the similarities!

last but not least...

5. Copic Challenge: RED HEADS! I thought it was a bit more in depth to use red to make a red head...lol...but found it easy to use E18, E09, & E07 to make a red head! Thank goodness for my Copic chart book!

These were sure fun to play with! Now let's see if I'll out-do the 5 in 1 challenges! LOL!

Copics:
Skin-E02, 50, & R02
Hair-E18, 09, 07, & 33
Clothing-R46, 29, 24, G99, 94, & 82
Shoes-N8, 6, & 3
Background glow-Y21 & air can
