New Release at The East Wind

I told ya September is an especially great month at The East Wind.  Here's another of the fabulous new releases called Day of the Dead.  I've made a banner to add to my traditional Dia de los Muertos decorations.  The colors reflect the giant marigolds that adorn the grave sites in Latin countries.  There are picnics and music and story telling. This is a day of celebration of the lives of the departed and is not a sad or morbid occasion.  Ofrendas (altars) are set up in rememberance in homes, as well.  See some of my personal celebration treasures HERE.

Here's a closeup of the gorgeous new stamp. She's colored with Copics and fussy cut.  Face painting is another popular tradition, although I've yet to try that myself.

The sentiment was computer generated and means "Always in my heart" in Spanish.
