Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #54: Buttons & Bows

So there's a great challenge going on over at Crafty Gals Corner! We have a challenge that begins every  WEDNESDAY! More often then not there are MULTIPLE SPONSORS PER WEEK! So there's plenty of chances to win! 

This week's challenge is Buttons AND Bows

Our sponsors this week are:
Prize: 5 Digital Images
Prize: 3 Digital Images
The artist behind The East Wind digital images is known as Unky LaStrange. Unky makes her home in British Columbia, Canada with her wonderful daughter, Aurora, the love of her life and source of much inspiration. She has been creating art since she was a child always allowing it to reflect her interests, humour, and love of all that is quirky. Her unique images run the gamut from the darkly humourous and sometimes creepy through the world of fashion-forward Lucy Loo to the sweet Aurora and Baby Aurora where life and people are good and beautiful. There are images to suit every taste, occasion, or whim at The East Wind (

Prize: 3 Digital Images

  1. Love this fish, Samantha! It's so pretty. I'd love to catch one like this! Your card is lovely, with gorgeous colours and shadings. The waves even look real. Beautiful job. It's a pleasure to sponsor for your challenge. Happy Stamping! Love, Miss Daisy

  2. These cards are both beautiful. Love the way you coloured in your Fall leaves on the first card. The colours are so warm and rich. Love the second card. That lil girl is adorable and I just love, love that cute fish. Sure looks a lot prettier on your card than in real life :-)
    Hugs ~ Lena
