First Challenge of the New Year at The East Wind

Happy New Year!  Looking forward to a whole New year of crafting and perhaps getting my craft room organized enough to not to waste hours looking for the "whatever" that I just laid down "somewhere" which often makes me a "last minute" kind of gal.  (Yeah, right! ;D)  First up is our brand new challenge at The East Wind using the fabulous freebie Newsletter subscribers receive in January.  Our challenge is "Button Up" (meaning use buttons on your project.)  Easy peasy, right?  We also want you to know that witches aren't just for Halloween any more.  LOL This cute UnkyToon 'Can You Fly' image was colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils, cut with Spellbinders Labels 13 and popped an layered on some die cut clouds. Added the star buttons and large orange one to the sentiment banner and called it done. Cute sentiment was found on the net by searching for "funny witch sayings" and computer generated.  There's great inspiration from my DT sisters on the Challenge Blog, with both Halloween themes and non, but they all have BUTTONS, so please some join us for a chance to win!

I'm entering this in the Simon Say Wednesday ATG Challenge, the Crafty Hazelnut's January Patterned Paper challenge, Papertake Weekly ATG, the Inspiration Destination #14 ATG, Eureka Stamps Something Old (the buttons and dies) Something New (the stamp) and TTRCD ATG Dec 30-Jan 5th.
