The Corrosive Challenge #152 - Summertime Girls

I must confess that I am exhausted as I type this post....I have been up for almost 24 hours at this point, have made 2 cards and written 4 blog posts.  It is long past bedtime, closer to dawn, and my small man gave up on me hours ago.  When he stumbled from his bed at 2am looking to crawl into mine with me, as he does every night, he found me still sitting at my desk in the craft room instead.  He is now asleep on the couch as I type this, sitting criss-cross-applesauce on the living room floor.  My lil trooper!

This is my last commitment for the evening (er, morning) and then I will try to catch a few winks before sleeping beauty wakes!  I'm here to tell you about the new Corrosive Challenge and it's a fun one!  I have to confess that a trip for ice cream last night was the inspiration for selecting this image and sentiment.  Our fabulous June sponsor is Mayzy Art and this is her lovely digi called Mallory.  You can find Mallory and an abundance of other fun images in Mayzy's etsy shop.  Mayzy is generously offering up a prize of 8 digis to our June winner!  How amazing is that?!?!

Our challenge this fortnight is "Summertime Girls"!  You must use a female image to create a summery project.  Easy enough for most of us, right?  My tasty treat on a Summer evening turned into a relatively CAS card.  Designer paper is DCWV Sweet stack, sentiment is My Favorite Things, and flowers are from my stash.  The die is Spellbinder's Floral Oval.

I'd also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
- 2 Sisters Challenge: #97-Anything Goes
- All Sorts Challenge: Dies to Die For  
- Cardmadfairy's Digi Day Challenge: Girly Challenge

Be sure to head over to The Corrosive Challenge blog to see what wonderful things my design team mates have to share with you!  And please do play along!

As the sun starts to cast a rosy glow on the horizon, I am finally off to la-la-land...  Zzzzzzzz......

I sure hope you get some rest. That is way too long to go without rest! Take care of yourself. I love your card and I have so many of her images but that one is new to me so here I go back to her shop. Great job on the coloring and design Regan.

Grrrl! Hope you got some rest!! This came out super cute despite your sleep deprivation :-) That sentiment reminds me of my favorite Sarah McLaughlin song "Your love is better than ice cream, better than anything else that I've tried". Love that fancy die cut and the flowers of course.
