Did you miss me? I know I've been quiet so far this month, but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy! There has been holiday shopping and decorating taking place! And I've been spending some quality time with my small man, enjoying the twinkling lights and the cozy feeling in the air. Also, our Elf on the Shelf, Boris, has returned from the North Pole and we have been delighting in his antics!
Sadly, this means there is one thing that hasn't been checked off the holiday To Do list yet: Christmas Cards! I haven't been doing any crafting and being the procrastinator that I am handmade cards for all are out of the question. So it looks like photo cards will be the way to go. But I do give special cards to a select few and have printed a bunch of images with hopes of getting some coloring and creating in soon. The Corrosive Challenge has a brand new challenge today- the last of the year for us. Our theme is an easy and fun one to close out 2013: "Anything Goes"! It's sponsored by the whimsical Lacy Sunshine!
Artist Heather Valentin tells us about the company in her own words:
Lacy Sunshine Stamps offers beautiful original and imaginative digital stamps for all your paper crafting needs.
All images from Lacy Sunshine are hand drawn and designed by myself,
Heather Valentin, a professional artist, muralist and illustrator and
my dad, professional artist, G.P.
From the art desk of Lacy Sunshine's creator....
"I am one who loves creating timeless pieces from my heart and soul,
creating an extraordinary world filled with magic and whimsical
friends.... one drawing at a time. Come journey with me now into my
Lacy Sunshine World".
Heather is offering a prize of 3 digis from the shop and she generously supplied each team member with an image to use. I selected Eleanor Holiday Shopping. She is colored with Copics and cut using the Romantic Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders). The sketch is from Digi Sketch Challenge. Their current challenge is Christmas with an optional sketch. Papers are My Mind's Eye - Merry. I've added a few punched snowflakes, pleated ribbon, and some bling. The sentiment is from a Teresa Collins set I picked up at AC Moore on Black Friday.
If you want more magical inspiration head over to The Corrosive Challenge blog to see what the rest of the team has to made! You will not be disappointed!
We are off to brunch and a visit with Santa today. I'm hoping for some good pictures for those photo cards! There may also be a little holiday baking thrown in and then who knows...
Enjoy your holiday season! May it be Merry & Bright!!!
