Corrosive Challenge 192 - Feel the Love

Hello again.  I've been a little behind on my duties lately.  Last week was a long and sad one for me and my family.  We had found out last Sunday that my cousin Shawn who was only 40 passed away in his sleep.  He was a tough guy on the outside, but he was really just a big teddy bear who would do anything for anyone, anytime.  We were very close when we were younger, he baby sat me, and I just adored him and followed him around like a little puppy dog.  The number of people that came to the wake, and left heartfelt messages was just overwhelming.  He will be deeply missed, and we're all still processing everything.  But we have each other, and lots of very funny and fond memories.

Aside from that, it's been so horribly cold, I just can't wait for this winter to be over! At least February has a holiday that's conducive to snuggling up and staying warm.  Valentine's Day, of course.  We also have a hot returning sponsor.Sassy Studio Designs is a fresh and fun company that has been designing and selling for over 3 years now.  Owner Lindsay started designing images shortly after she started stamping.  She designs fun, sexy images that fans enjoy using and friends and significant others enjoy receiving.  In June 2009 thanks to the few faithful followers she had, Sassy Studio Designs was born! She still tries to be Lindsay Dyer: keeping with her original philosophy and reason for designing stamps, make them fun, and keep them sassy...and yes sometimes even sexy!

What better sponsor could we have for our new challenge, "Feel the Love" - create a Valentine's Day project for the upcoming holiday.  I worked with Wednesday Sara Addams for a darker, funnier card.

I had an idea in my mind for this one, and just winged it.  The sentiment was computer generated.  She is colored with Copics, and I made the stick pin.  Supplies were all from stash.

Hope everyone is staying warm, and since we're all cooped up inside (with more snow coming!), it's a perfect chance to enter the new challenge at The Corrosive Challenge .  

Thanks for stopping by,
