~Simple and Useful Rules~
  • Apply with any of your own creation. 
  • Only new creations. 
  • No backlinking.
  • As much as we love to see TheEastWind Image used, any other images are also welcome! But to make it extra special for using TheEastWind Image, you can enter twice for your first entry with a TheEastWind Stamp. -> So one entry with your blog post and the next one with your blog itself so we have you twice for the randomizer draw.
  • You can enter 3 times if you are not using TheEastWind Image but if you are using one you can enter as many times as you want. 
  • The winner will be picked randomly, while the the favorites will be picked by each designer. Winner+Designer's pick will be announced on 28th (midnight EST) March on blog. Claim your prize in 24hours. Email Kyra at info@unky.ca -> Winner will get 3 digital stamps of your choice. 
 Here's my card for the challenge.
I made fun of the cliché to follow your dreams. The text is written with the Garden font and reads: "Follow your dreams... except for that one where you go to work naked/where you are being chased by black hairy spiders/where you are being trapped in a tiny box." You have dreams at night too, and many of those you probably shouldn't follow. Lol. 

You can find the angel stamp that I've used, here in the East Wind shop.  


Ps. I have submitted this card to the following challenges:
Artistic Inspirations: Monochrome anything
Crafty Boots: Sparkle
Crafty Calendar: Things with wings
One Stitch at a time: Use a digi

Serious sheep

Here's a card with a digital image by Oddball. When I saw the sheep, I fell in love...


I have written "I'm Sorry" with the Simply Glamorous font.

Here's my own-made background. It's a freebie if anyone would like it (I have it in many other colours too...).

Piece of carrot

Here's a card just for the fun of it. The carrot girl comes from the East Wind. You can find her here.
I wrote the sentiment "Go veggie" with the cookie monster font.

Here's the background that I created. First I drew 3-4 carrots by hand. Then I cut them out and glued them to a green paper. Finally I scanned it all and reduplicated it digitally. That's how I got this pattern.
Carrot background - freebie
