The Corrosive Challenge #158 - Animal Companions


Good morning!  It's Sunday and a new Corrosive Challenge starts today!  Our fabulous sponsor this month is Delicious Doodles!  I just love Teri's images... She has a little something for every taste.

 

Our challenge this fortnight is "Animal Companions".  Easy enough, right?  Just use an image of an animal.  I took the companion part literally and have decided to feature Teri's gorgeous image "Katarina" on my Christmas card.  I am way behind on holiday card production this year so I thought I'd better step it up since Christmas is just over three months away now!


 Katarina is an exquisite beauty and her cool factor is multiplied by that gorgeous snow leopard accompanying her!  I colored the image with a combination of Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers.  My layout is the current one from Sketch Saturday (#225). Papers are Winterland from Fancy Pants Designs.  The sentiment is from There She Goes and is cut with the Labels Twenty One Nestabilities from Spellbinders.  A couple of pearls, a few flowers, a bit of seam binding, and a snowflake border punch from Martha Stewart complete my card.

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, R20, BG10, BG13, BG15) and Prismacolor Art Markers (79, 108, 109, 112, 137, 150, 151, 152, 169).






Please head over to The Corrosive Challenge to see the wonderful creations from my team!  They are a talented bunch of ladies and I look forward to seeing their inspiring projects for our challenges!  I hope you do too and that we'll be seeing you join in for your chance to win the fabulous prize from Delicious Doodles!

Today is kind of a special day for me...  Three years ago today, I went into labor.  My son was born the next morning and life will never be the same!  In an amazing and magical way that every mom reading this knows!  My sweet small man may be growing up, but he will always be my baby!  And in honor of his birthday, we will be visiting a farm this afternoon to see the animals and go apple picking and other fun New England Fall festivities!   He loves animals of all kinds and he has been looking forward to this!  I think it's adorable that all he asked for for his birthday were toys that involved animals.  It's a possibility that if I loved that little guy any more I might burst!  :-)  We will celebrate officially on Monday as well, but he's so cute we started the party last night!  Notice the animal print cupcake liners.... lol

Happy Birthday, Kayne!
    
Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!
