The Corrosive Challenge #133 - Punches and/or Dies



Hello, and Happy Sunday! I have been up most of the night with my poor sick small man so please forgive me if I ramble or spout gibberish. He has been dealing with a tummy bug all week. I thought he was on the mend, but yesterday he was cranky and not himself. And on his birthday too! *frowns* He didn't want anything to do with his beloved trucks or cupcakes so I knew he wasn't feeling well. He has woken up a few times overnight but is sleeping now and I hope to get a few winks myself very soon.

First, though, I want to tell you about the new Corrosive Challenge that starts today! We are now a fortnightly challenge so this theme will run for two weeks. If you'll remember, we have two fabulous sponsors this month - Dude Time Doodles and Paper Makeup Stamps! Thanks to all who played along for our "Funny/Punny" challenge! This time around we want to see you use your punches and/or die cuts! I have used both on my card! The bats and bat border plus the sentiment were all done with punches. The "moon" was made using a die from my Classic Circles Nestabilities. My adorably sweet witchy fairy image is one from sponsor Paper Makeup Stamps! The layout I found on Feline Playful from a challenge blog called Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge. The sketch for their one hundredth challenge was perfect for what I envisioned for my card! I, of course, added some extras with the flowers and bling.

I hope you'll join in with the challenge! To see what the rest of the wonderful design team ladies have created head on over to The Corrosive Challenge blog! Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone enjoys their day! I'm hoping mine includes a nap!

Sorry the small man is under the weather. Anytime a child doesn't want cupcakes it's a sure thing they aren't feeling well. Love the colors of this card. Love the bats. I can't find the MS bat punch anywhere local. Wwaaaaaa! TFS
