I have used a paper from a paper pad by We R Memory Keepers.  I added some heart patterned washi tape.  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps and is coloured with copic markers.  I also added a metal word brad  "Love".

Blue Christmas

I think this is meant to be a springtime image - but I saw the sheep and thought of the sheep in the manger!

http://brownsugarchallenge.blogspot.co.nz/2016/09/challenge-217-anything-goes.html

I have used a snowflake patterned paper from Lozzy.  The image is from Elisabeth Bell and is coloured with copic markers.  I die-cut with a Spellbinders die and then embellished with some blue rhinestones.  The digital sentiment is from Digi Doodles and has been cut into a pennant shape.

Think Pink

When I think Pink, I either think of Breast Cancer Awareness or Baby Girls.  This time, I went with Baby Girl.
