Challenge # 184 - Cute and Creepy

Not going to lie here, I forgot a little that I needed to do a post today.  While I should have been doing it, I was doing this:

We needed a new Halloween decoration, we had a garden gnome...voila!  We may put some "brains" in the basket closer to Halloween.

There was also a new challenge at The corrosive challenge with one of my absolute favorite sponsors Dilly Beans Stamps


I just adore all of Megan Suarez 's images.  The team has made some fabulous inspiration be sure to check it out!

Hope everyone is enjoying the lovely fall weather we've been having.

Thanks for stopping by!

Corrosive Challenge #183 - Maiden, Mother, Crone

Time for a new challenge over at The Corrosive Challenge we are celebrating women of all sorts this fortnight.  Witches, fairies, princesses, mothers you name it.  we are lucky to welcome back a delightful returning sponsor - Delicious Doodles .  Many of Teri's awesome images are perfect for this task!

 I was able to work with the fabulous Fan-Tasia isn't she gorgeous!?  I knew I had some asian-style Bo Bunny papers in my stash that would work perfectly with her.  She is colored with Copics, with glitter and glossy accents added here and there. 

Kind of a quick post this time, have a wedding to go to in Long Island today, and decided to just go there and back for the day due to babysitting constraints.  Eek!  Going to be so tired on Monday but the wedding should be fun.

Looking forward to seeing everyone's entries to our new challenge.

Thanks for taking a peek!

Corrosive Challenge #182 - All About Fall

Well, I guess this is it.  Labor Day weekend, the end of summer, one last hurrah before the cold settles in.  Although it makes me sad to say goodbye to summer, I DO like autumn.  Back to School, pretty foliage, and of course, Halloween!  We'll be spending our long weekend doing a little BBQ-ing, back to school shopping, and hopefully a little crafting, as my anniversary is on Tuesday, and I decided to try to make something instead of buying a gift...maybe I'll post it if it turns out ok!

A new challenge means a new sponsor, and The Corrosive Challenge has a wonderful company lined up for you!  We are very pleased to welcome Meljen's Designs!  These images are just too stinkin' cute.

What better way to usher in a new month, a new season, a new challenge, and a new sponsor than to make it "All About Fall"!  Fall colors, Fall images, anything Fall at all and it qualifies for the challenge!  The team was given some images to work with, and though it was hard to choose, (I ended up changing my mind!), I worked with the adorable "Big Sweater Kid"
My son will be starting Kindergarten on Wednesday, so I thought this would be a perfect image to use for a card for his new teacher.
He is colored with Copics, with glossy accents added to his eyes and shoes.  Sketch was an older one I have had printed out.  I added a couple stickers from K & Co "Teacher" sticker medley, some hemp twine, and metal gem stickers.  Papers all from DCWV "The Wild Splendor" Stack.

Wishing everyone a Happy Fall, be sure to stop by The Corrosive Challenge to enter your finest fall creations!
