Winter Blues at The East Wind
Yikes! This must be a record. (And a crappy one, at that) 10 days since my last post. Mojo has flown the coop, but I have been crafting, just not stuff I can post yet. Thank goodness there's a new challenge today at The East Wind with the apropos theme of Winter Blues. I certainly have nothing to complain about here, as the weather has been in the upper 60's, but I do have a bit of the post holiday syndrome. How about you?
Gotta say this gorgeous image, Aurora 'Warm Wishes', did cheer me up a bit. She's colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. I've used the no background png format so I could put her in this beautiful snowy scene which is from the Gecko Galz Frozen mini digi paper pack. Did you know that many of the new TEW images come in jpg, png, no background png and no lines formats, all for one low price? I also added some additional candles from my brand new JoyCraft die. Thought they were perfect with the beautiful image. Finally, I've used Stickles on the flames to add a little bling and a gorgeous organdy bow. My teamies have outdone themselves for this challenge so please be sure to visit the Challenge Blog to be totally inspired. And for those of you who just can't let go of Christmas, (who, moi?) the Merry Quirkmas FB challenge runs through the 17th on TheEastWind FB page.
