Happy New Year!

Hope everyone had a fabulous holiday season and 2016 brings you all good things.  I chose to do minimal crafting and focused on family, friends and avoiding my usual holiday melt downs, hence the few blog posts.  Sorry about that, but Yea, ME!  For once I was fully decorated BEFORE Christmas Eve. Today I have the new release from The East Wind called Masquerade.  Isn't she fabulous!?! 

 She was giving me a sort of Lady GaGa vibe so I decided to go DRAMATIC with my fave color scheme of red, black and white.  I used a combo of Copics and Prismacolor pencils and had a ball coloring her up.  Added a couple of jewels and some tulle and she was good to go.

Unfortunately, the sentiment isn't all that visible in the big pic with the glare, so here's a closeup, with crappy lighting, done with my Dymo.  Thought it made a good New Year's Resolution.  LOL

So it's a New Year with more new releases from The East Wind, as well as a new Blog Challenge which starts today.
