The Corrosive Challenge #131 - Come to the Dark Side

You never realize how much "stuff" you have until you are forced to pack for a weekend away from your usual crafting spot. I am spending the weekend at my parents', hunkered down with the small man, to ride out Hurricane Irene. As you all know, I am a master procrastinator so I had not yet even thought about what I was going to do for my Corrosive Challenge card this week, other than the fact that I would be using an image from sponsor Simply Betty Stamps. The theme is "Show Us Your Dark Side" so SBS couldn't be a more perfect sponsor for this challenge! And I just received my new order in the mail (yes, Betty forced me to buy rubber, and I did it gladly for this adorably fun Teen Scene Halloween collection)! So I threw all of them, plus a random assortment of dies, flowers, bling and what have you, into my scrapbooking case and headed off. My mom thought I was moving in to stay when she saw how many bags and cases the wee one and I arrived with. I guess she hasn't been in my stamping room lately... lol

Anyway, with my limited supplies I was able to whip up this creation using SBS "Addams Family Portrait" rubber cling stamp. Betty, Christian, and Lola look fabulous as Morticia, Gomez, and Wednesday! Even Thing is there! As soon as I decided this was my image I knew I wanted to use the Fleur De Lis Squares to make a frame for the portrait. The sumptuous paper is from my new Authentique - Glowing 6x6 pad and the flowers and brad are both Recollections from Michaels. I simply ADORE Halloween, and I've been having so much fun making cards for my favorite holiday! I have to say I'm pleased to actually be ahead on something (it doesn't happen often! lol).

Now it's a waiting game to see what happens when the hurricane arrives. I am hoping we don't lose power, but we're prepared. I have the Blackberry so I'm hoping that will keep me connected even if all else fails. And I'm wondering how crafting by flashlight would go... Haha! I hope you will stop by The Corrosive Challenge blog as founder Janet has a special message for all her followers and a big announcement (*hint, hint: it partially involves me!). You'll also want to check out all the other delightfully dark creations from the rest of the Corrosive design team! Oh, and then I'm sure you'll be inspired to play along too!

To everyone in the path of Hurricane Irene, be safe and stay well! Thanks for taking a peek! All comments are truly valued and will mean I won't send the zombies to eat your brains... This time. Bwahahaha!
