Challenge # 216 - Winter Blues

Brrr.  Seems like no matter where you are in the country, things are just down right chilly this winter.  We hope everyone is staying warm and snuggling up inside to watch all the big games, or with a good book or movie, and of course, some crafting in between.  That's one of the plus sides if we have to be cooped up inside, more time to get crafty!

To help us get over those winter blues, we want you to create a wintry and/or blue project (note: does not have to be monochromatic but blue should be prominent)

We have a fabulous returning sponsor for our challenge - A Day For Daisies (also known as ADFD) provides themed categories of over 1000 digital illustrations, including fairy tales and magical mermaids, cutie kids, vintage illustrations, sentiments and lovely designs for all occasions. Be sure to check out what is available in the shop, and head over to the blog for some awesome inspiration!

The lucky winner will receive a $12 gift voucher to the shop

There are so many wonderful images to choose from, it's hard to narrow it down.  Here's what our team members decided on to express their winter blues, and they did not disappoint!

You have until February 1st @ 5am EST to play along!

Challenge # 215 - Shiny and New

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!  We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season, and look forward to a happy, healthy, and crafty 2015!  It was nice to take a little break and enjoy some time off but now we are ready to get back to business.  That means it's time for the first challenge of the New Year.  In honor of all things new, our challenge is "Shiny and New" - You can make a card for anything "new" (baby, marriage, etc), use something new, and/or use something shiny.

We are pleased to welcome back Aurora Wings and the beautiful fantasy art of Mitzi Sato-Wiuff.  Here is a little about Mitzi from her website:

"Being originally from Japan, my work reflects the influence of the vintage shoujo manga and classic tattoo artists of my native country.  There is a strong emphasis on the clean and detailed line art  hand drawn in pen on paper, which is colored digitally in my own unique coloring technique using Corel Painter program.  My fusion of traditional and digital media produces a look reminiscent of watercolor paintings.  I hope my fantasy images will take you into the world of pure imagination, presenting each subject in fluid lines and beautiful colors."

Mitzi is offering a $15 gift certificate for a lucky winner!

Let's see what shiny and new inspiration the team has for you, using a selection of awesome Aurora Wings images.

Using Steampunk Dark Angel

Beautiful job, ladies!  We hope you're all feeling shiny and new and ready to enter the challenge.  Pack up all those Christmas supplies, and break out your sparkle, shine, and new goodies to play with.
