It's Getting Hot at The East Wind.

It's the 15th of the month and that means a new challenge at The East Wind Challenge Blog.  This fortnight the theme is "It's Getting Hot".  Indeed it is.  Our air has been on since early this morning and I don't see much relief in sight.  Sure wish I were at the beach like the Ghetto Fabulous Ashley 'I Love my Life'
The East Wind Ashley line is particularly special to Unky, as it is inspired by her friend Ashley who is currently battling cancer.  This girl's got some 'tude and 50% of the proceeds from the sale of these stamps go to help Ashley pay some of her medical bills.

Just look at this sassy gal!  Fabulous she is!  She was so much fun to color with my Copics and I've added some Glossy Accents to her shades.

She's fussy cut and popped atop some really ancient DP from the DCWV Summer Stack.  Been hoarding these prints for just such an occasion.  The sun was done with two layers of Spellbinders Pinking Circles and the sentiment uses colored Alpha Beads with a computer generated translation.  Hope you go visit the Challenge Blog to see the hot makes by my DT sisters and are inspired to play along.  Be sure to scroll down to see the Winners from Our Use Ribbon Challenge, as well.  See you there!  P.S.  Our Wedding Bliss FB contest runs through July 17th.  Check out the Group HERE.

I'm entering this in Artistic Inspirations 100th Challenge (WooHoo!) ATG, Craftin' Desert Divas Summer Linky Party, Digi Makeover Girly Girl, Fairytale Stampers Summer, Crafty Calendar July Summertime Fun, the Outlawz Friday Coloring Challenge At the Beach or Pool, and The Stamping Boutique Fussy Cut Something on Your Card or Project.
