A New Sketch Challenge at PCSG

It's time for a new sketch challenge in the Paper Crafting Support Group on Facebook. This week I have used an image by Star Stampz called "Balloons and Ice Cream". I love these stamps because I love chibis! They are SO cute! And they are so perfect for cards for little kids, and I have a few birthdays coming up this spring. 
Balloons and Ice Cream
I coloured this with Copics, and drew the clouds and coloured the sky in so she really looked like she was taking off with those balloons. I flipped the sketch on it's side to fit the dimensions of the image. My patterned paper is from Michele R Designs; the flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts; the pearl string is from Kaisercraft. My solid pink paper is scraps from a previous project. I never throw paper away!

Sketch Challenge #6
The challenge runs for two weeks from February 27 to March 11. Drop in, join the group if you haven't already, and join in on the fun!

New Release from The East Wind

Hello Crafters!! It's Tuesday and it's new release day at The East Wind! Today's new image is Lucy Loo 'Torn Dress' and she's got some attitude. I picked one of my favourite memes circulating the interwebs (you know the one with Scarlett O'Hara aka Vivien Leigh) and incorporated it onto my card. I'm sure I know some ladies with sass that I can send it to. ;-)

I Heart You!

Valentine's Day may be over, but we still have love in our hearts at The East Wind. Our newest challenge opens today and the theme is "I Heart You". You need to make a project with a TEW image and incorporate hearts into the final project. I have used Aurora "Love You" for my card.


I coloured this image with Copics. The black and white heart paper is from Stampin' Up. The die is from Spellbinders.

Charlie and a new Sketch Challenge

Helloooo!!! I'm just back from a wonderful vacation on Curacao. It's hot and sunny every day, so I had nothing to complain about except not enough Rum in my drinks somedays. ;-) I will attach some pics of my vacay below, but first, let's get down to business! 

While I was gone, I missed two deadlines. Great. So I'll catch up with both in one post and get my booty in gear for the rest of February, in addition to a super awesome GDT I'm doing next month for one of my most favourite artists. I'm super excited about it!! 

While I was getting my tan on, The East Wind released a new image called "Charlie". I have some horse crazy people in my family, so it's perfect for any number of the girls in my family. I use the dappled horse tutorial in Kit and Clowder's All About Animals class to colour my horse. It was my first attempt, so I need a little extra practice, but I think it came out fine for my first try.


I used a sketch for the newest Paper Crafting Support Group sketch challenge #5 which started on February 13. Pop over to the group and join us for this newest challenge. The prize is a $15 gift certificate from Paper Temptress!


And now what you've been waiting for... Pictures from my vacation!! ;-)



Okay, that's it from me!! Make sure you check out The East Wind on Facebook and PCSG.
