Oak Pond Creations Sponsors Send A Smile 4 Kids

Good day, crafters!  I hope everyone on this side of the pond is starting to thaw out from all the ice and snow.  What a crazy few weeks in Myrtle Beach.  We had an ice storm here in our usual sub-tropic surroundings.  Take a look at a few scenes from Oak Pond:


 The ice was beautiful, but in the end very destructive.  We accumulated almost an inch of it throughout the county.  Many of the native Live Oak Trees throughout the area succumbed to the weight of the ice.  It caused their large limbs to break off, damaging some and completely destroying others.  Most of these trees are hundreds of years old so the loss is very sad.  The good new is we have thawed out and the weather forecast has South Carolina seeing warmer temperatures.

This week I'm happy to be sponsoring a fabulous challenge called Send A Smile 4 Kids

This is a challenge that allows you to donate your challenge card for inpatient children at various Children's Hospitals.  There are a few guidelines to follow when making your card and the card theme this week is:

Sketchbook News: February's Free Digital Stamp & What's New!

Happy February, crafters.  I hope you are thawing out from those crazy winter storms and staying warm and toasty.  I have new images to share this week.  Spring is on my brain and I'm sketching like a mad woman.  Let's start with OPC's Spring Tulips:
You can't have May flowers without some April showers right?  I sketched a lovely umbrella to shelter us from the rain.  :)
Finally, since it's been soooo cold over here in Myrtle Beach, my friend Jeni requested an extra large cup of Starbucks.  Now, when your friend asks you for a favor you never turn them down, right?  She sent the photo and I sketched.  Great teamwork :)  I can't wait to see what she creates with OPC's Grande  :)
All of these images are available for purchase at my studio.
