Dark and Dreary

This weeks corrsive challenge is to make a "dark" card. So, naturally my mind went to Halloween. I used the owl from Stampin up's dark and dreary set and the flourish from Baroque Motifs. The fence is a Martha Stewart punch and I sponged the background in going grey.

It is with heavey heart that Janet(founder of the Corrossive challenge) is stepping down. I wish her all the best as she is just one fantastic person. Thanks you to Susan and Regan who have agreed to keep the challenges alive. In September we will be challenging you every other week.

I have forgot to post but would like to share(a little late) that on August 16th, my husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary. It was spent quietly but very content. I know it is corny but I think I love him more today than in the begininng, we have been through many trials and tribulations and made it our only slightly scarred. Here is a picture from that time(please be aware that it was the 80"s).

Girly !

This week is Girl power week at the corrosive challenge. I used our sponser(Simply Betty) image Josie rag doll. She reminded me of the movie Coraline and also the dolls, I can't remeber their names LaLa something. I call them spooky- A-- dolls. So I thought she deserved to be all in pink. The saying is from Summer fun set in the Stampin up mini.

Sktech Time

It is Sketch Time over at the Corrosive Challenge!
I needed some more Birthday cards as I am running low. I used the new Hostess set from Stampin Up. I love this set with all the Birthday sayings. I also ran it through the cuttlebug using the birthday embossing folder. I hope you join us in the challenge.

Earth Tones

This week at the corrosive challenge was to use Earth Tones, since Fall is one of my favorite seasons, I was ready. I coloured the Medallion stamp(Stampin Up) with pumpkin pie, summer sun,and cajun craze. The background fleck is done with the dot stamp from confetti stamp set. I am ready for Fall!(not a big fan of this hot weather).
