Happy Mother's Day! Wishing all you mamas out there a fabulous day! We'll be celebrating with my mom and a little Chinese take-out. It's supposed to be a gorgeous day so I'm looking forward to some sunshine, a bit of relaxing, and maybe even a little coloring before the day is over. But right now I have a new Corrosive Challenge to tell you about! We are welcoming sponsor, Sami Stamps! Artist Sami Siemers Ratliff is the talent behind these wonderfully whimsical images. And if the art work looks a little similar to another one of our much loved sponsors, A Day For Daisies, well that is because Sami is Tammy's little sister! Lots of talent in that family, for sure!
Our theme this fortnight is a fun one - "Banner Day"! It's as easy as throwing a banner on your project! Sami graciously offered each team member an image to work with as well the $12 gift certificate she will provide for our winner! I selected Comfy Cocoa for my creation. This image reminded me of my mom and her love for coffee and yoga. She is colored with Copics and cut using the Classic Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders). I once again added some Fran-tage embossing enamel to the image panel, this time in Aged Rose. The sketch is #150 from The Deconstructed Sketch. I've used a few dies on the card: Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics (My Favorite Things), Heart Banner (La-La-Land Crafts), Leaf Doohickey (Magnolia), and Tiny Shapes (Whimsy Stamps). The latter coordinates with the Spell It Out alphabet stamp set I used for the "MOM" sentiment. Papers are DCWV - Vintage Collector.
Head over to The Corrosive Challenge blog to see what other banner creations the design team has to share with you! And play along for your chance to win!
Since Kayne is little still I treated myself to some Mother's Day goodies - a trip to the salon for nails and a pedi as well as six Saturated Canary digis and a new Magnolia die (The castle! I can't wait for it to arrive!) But my sweet small man showered me with love only a preschooler can give!
Thanks for stopping in! I'll have more cards to show off this week as I have at least half a dozen custom creations either done or in the works. Hope to see you again soon! Enjoy your day!
