Patterns-IA Challenge

I created this cute witch that I named Esme in conjunction with this week's Inspiration Avenue challenge which was "Patterns". Esme is illustrating that checks and plaids Do go together! You can see more of Esme here. Take a look at all the wonderful art that was created for this challenge here.

It has rained all week here, and the water is just sitting in the backyard trying to soak into the ground. No major water in the basement since the pumps are working--just a few trickles.

Have a wonderful creative weekend! I'm hoping it dries up enough for me to do laundry!

Love your little witch my friend! And, of course checks and plaids go together!!! I wear them together ;o) I hope you get some sun soon! You should have did your laundry in the rain! LOL! Sorry, bad joke! Have a great day ;o)

This is just too cute... hope you dry out soon, we had a horrible time with rain and flooding this past summer in Australia and I can relate to the nightmare of the washing. Sending you some sunny days xx http://traceyfletcherking.blogspot.com/

LOL Stacy! It was coming close to hanging the clothes on the line & sudsing them!

Thank you for your visit, Tracey! I hope all is well with you down under, too!

How cute is this babe, Look at the patterns & those wild colours, red hair, green & lilac, superb Debbie... & such a big smile :)
I think you may have less water if you lived on a houseboat!!! Pleased to hear the pumps are working :)

Esme is so wonderful - love everything about her from the way she carries off her patterns, her cheeky green face, her worm topped apple & that fab hair. Great entry for this week's IA pattern theme!

What a great entry for the challenge. She's very colorful and I like the checks and plaids together.

Not only do her plaids and checks look lovely together, her green face is perfect for her personality.

It's been raining here too, but just a bit... enough to make a mess on the cars hehe But the thunder, oh wow... the thunder was something.

Well, isn't she fun?! I've always liked mixing patterns and she does it with panache!

Esme is a beautiful witch! And her outfit reminds me of my mother-in-law. She is from the Philippines and wears every sort of pattern at the same time.

What a really sweet little witch! I think you did a lovely job. :) Glad you don't have a major flood on your hands. There was just way too much rain - so happy the sun has been shining.

Okay this is just too cool. I come here after reading an email from Sunshineshelle. And hooray! I'm your 113th follower (I'm obsessed with the number). Then I see that I might be the 13th comment... and then I see this beauty, Esme, huh?

You made me smile ;-)

She's a good witch, not scary at all and carries her fashion sense with pride! Terrific creation.

I like the quote you selected for the aceo in the post before this.

She is so cool!! I really like her - such a cute face and the hair is gorgeous!

Oh my Goodness she is adorable! I love dolls and toys so much (and have seen the "Toy Story" series/read "The Velveteen Rabbit" so many times I secretly kind of believe they have feelings and are real), and this is a wonderful creation. She is so happy and huggable, and a creation for Halloween. My favorite Holiday :-D No joke, I take Halloween as seriously as some girls take Valentine's Day.

I hope she goes to a good home soon! I'm only just getting started on Etsy, but I may have to get some dolls from you (-: BTW, if you don't mind my asking, whereabouts in the Hudson Valley are you located? Are you in Westchester? I'm from the area closer to the Long Island Sound originally, but I went to college on the Bronxville/Yonkers border, and tutored kids at the Yonkers Library that's close to the Hudson. Not sure if that's where you are, but all of the Hudson Valley is beautiful! I used to go to a dollhouse store in Irvington as a kid, and it was great (-:

Great entry and great work!
