The East Wind - Challenge #23

Wow, I am getting a lot better at this blogging thing again..... I am feeling better and able to make more projects, so I am back to blogging more regularly.
I am so thankful that a lot of my fellow crafting and blogging friends didn't abandon me when I was away for so long. Big hugs and kisses to every single one of you!!
 
 
This month is going so fast that it is already time for a brand new challenge over on The East Wind Challenge Blog.
 

 
 
There are plenty of ways to view their gorgeous images and also to share your makes with them.... 
 
- Challenge Blog http://www.theeastwind.com/
 
 
The Theme for Challenge #23 is.....

"Winter Blues"

.....which is a great theme for the current weather situation in the UK. Now, this can be an early Christmas card or just a winter themed make. The only condition is, the most prominent colour MUST BE BLUE...
 
I chose to use the image "Waiting For You", which is available in The East Wind's Etsy Shop....
 
 
 
 

Here is what I made




 
This image reflects the end of a fun Christmas/festive period and the beginning of a cold and wet new year.....
 
The card base, topper layers and snowflakes were cut on my Silhouette Cameo, which I am totally addicted too.
The image was coloured using my pencils and highlighted with white pen.
I have to say, I do love the mix of blues and teals in this card.
 
 
I hope this card has given you some inspiration to get your craft on and get making to join the current challenge.
