The Corrosive Challenge #193 - In Stitches

Hi there!  Happy Belated Valentine's Day!  I was so busy this past week with crafting and baking that I never had a spare moment to blog any of the creations I made.  Not to worry...  I'll be back soon with a Valentine's post filled to bursting with cards!  For now, I'll just share my card for the new Corrosive Challenge.

This fortnight we are welcoming sponsor A & T Digital Designs!  They are the home of the adorable and whimsical Emerald Fairies.  The design team was each generously provided with an image to work with and they are offering a fabulous prize of three digis to our winner!

The theme for challenge #193 is "In Stitches".  This means we want to see stitching (real or faux) on your project.  I am sewing machine challenged so I opted for the faux kind.  This is Jewel and she is colored with Copics and then cut using the Sizzix Bigz Top Note die from Stampin' Up.  It has that fabulous stitched pattern right in the die!  A simple and lovely alternative to needle and thread!  The sketch is Crazy 4 Challenges (#223).  I  used my beloved Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics, added some flowers, bling, and a couple of pins.  The crystal pin is from Maya Road and the other is Stampin' Up.  That adorable ladybug embellishment was made by my mom.  She has her own shop on Art Fire, Wyvern Designs.  Papers are My Mind's Eye - Kiss and Tell.  And since every fairy needs some sparkle on her wings, I added Crystal Stickles.

I hope you'll head over to the challenge blog to see what the team stitched together for you!  And play along for your chance to win too!  Today is my mom's 60th birthday so we will be headed out for dinner with the family this evening.  I'll probably try to get some crafting in during the afternoon, if I can muster up the energy.  This brutal winter has me daydreaming of Spring from my couch, huddled under blankets with a book and the TV remote.  Yesterday we had our third snowstorm in a week and a half!  That darn groundhog....   

Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by!
