The Corrosive Challenge #165 - Out with the Old

 The Corrosive Challenge is back and ready for the new year with a new look, new challenges, and new team members!  Check out the blog for all the exciting changes and join us on January 20th to meet our new team!  But today I'm going to tell you about our first challenge for 2013!

Our fabulous sponsor is Simply Betty Stamps!  Betty has not only generously provided images for the team to use, but she is offering a $15 gift voucher for her store as the prize for this fortnight's challenge!  Check out the SBS shop HERE for the quirk in you!  The theme for the challenge is "Out with the Old".  Just use something from your stash on your project (and tell us what it is) to be eligible for this fantastic prize!  

I selected Pwew Pwew Pwew Jude from the Jude & the Rockers Space collection.  Kayne asked me if I would make him a card and when your three year old puts in a request like that how can you not oblige him?!?!  Jude is colored with Copics.  The sketch is #179 from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  My stash item is the designer paper.  It is from the All About Boys stack by DCWV, and I've had it well over a year now.  Since this card is for a toddler and he likes to handle them I kept the embellishments to a minimum, just adding some die cut stars (Spellbinders) and a My Favorite Things fishtail banner die cut stamped with a sentiment also from MFT.

I hope you'll head over to The Corrosive Challenge blog to see what the rest of the crew has managed to clean out of their stash!

Markers: Copics (E11, E21, E00, E23, E31, E33, E34, R20, YG03, YG06, YG11, Y32, B02, B04).

OF COURSE you had to make him a card! And what a PERFECT boy card - that paper is too fun, especially the one that looks like eyeballs! And the image is adorable :) So glad you could play with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week :)

This is too cute, and even cuter that Kayne requests cards from you. I wonder if he'll snuggle with this one like his cow card? Absolutely perfect papers to go with the image. Hope he likes it!
