OMG I'm Excited!!!

Welcome back fellow Bloggers, Crafters and Wonderful Friends. 
I am slowly getting back to 'normal', but I am taking it very easy. 

Today, I have some absolutely amazing news to share with you all. As my followers will know, I LOVE colouring. Tonight, I was invited to join 'The East Wind' Design Team....... How amazing is that???!!! 
The East Wind Images are amazing and so very detailed and different. 
For me, this is like a dream Design Team appointment for me. I have drooled over their images for so long and now I feel like a kid in a sweet shop!

(Please click above links to take you to the individual places).

The East Wind offer challenges on their Blog and their Facebook page, so plenty of opportunities to join in for a chance to win some gorgeous The East Wind Images. 

The current Facebook Challenge is as follows:

The Current Challenge Blog Challenge is as follows:

It's the middle of the month and that means it's time for our next challenge at The East Wind. The theme that we have chosen for Challenge #9 is Bling. It doesn't matter if it's a little gentle smattering of bling, or full out over the top bling. We want to see it!
