New Challenge at The East Wind-Go Green

If you are looking for the Dia de los Muertos Blog Hop, please go HERE.

Our new challenge at The East Wind starts today and the DT is using the fabulous freebie you receive with the November newsletter.  Visit the Challenge Blog and look for the big pink rectangle on the right to get yours.  Our new challenge is "Go Green", giving you the option of doing some recycling, or just using a lot of the color GREEN.  I've done both!  the DP's are from the DCWV Green Stack (70% recycled paper), the tree is cut with an old Halloween Cuttlebug die from the corrugated lining they put in the display cartons for Starkist tuna pouches, the grass came with my sushi (and smells like fish LOL No, JK, I washed it first.  Just wondering if you're still with me here), and the embellishments are strung on the ribbon by bread tags.  WooHoo!

I've colored the beautiful Aurora 'Go Green" with Copics in many shades of green to go with her lovely red hair (and because the occasion called for it).  Her stride and the scene I created made me think of the Thanksgiving song so I used the lyrics as my sentiment.  Please visit the Challenge Blog for more inspiration from my wonderful teamies and don't forget to check out the Show Room Blog for fabulous coloring videos done by the artist Unky herself, and creative poems and stories using the gorgeous images from The East Wind.  P.S. We have a FB Contest on our Group Page going on now too with the theme of Animals through November 17th.  

I'm entering this in the Mema's Craft November ATG Challenge, the Outlawz Monday Greeting Cards ATG challenge, TTRCD Oct 27th -Nov 3 ATG, Party Time Tuesdays ATG, Polkadoodles Recycle it and Simon Says Wednesday ATG.
