Welcome to another Corrosive Challenges challenge.  This challenge is sponsored by Dilly Beans.  Our challenge is called I've Been Framed.  We were asked to incorporate a frame in our project.  Dilly Beans has some amazing images that already have frames around them.  This one was a lot of fun to color.  I used Copics, of course.  I cut it out and popped it up with SU dimensionals.  I went super simple with the rest of the card.  I used a Darice embossing folder for the background and all the paper used here is from my box-o'-scraps.  I just love it when I can use up my scraps.  

I finished this card yesterday after I got home from Amish Country.  It was my birthday and my husband and his parents took me to celebrate.  We had a great time.  I got some great cast iron loaf pans from my mother-in-law and a 14 inch cast iron pizza pan from my husband.  My beautiful birds got me a lovely card and two boxes of candy.  I am diabetic and overweight yet my husband always has them give me candy.  Oh Bill!

I hope you head over to the Corrosive Challenges blog and check out what the rest of the design team has created for your inspiration.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

My Sentiments Exactly

Happy Mother's Day everyone.  Today begins a new Corrosive Challenges challenge...My Sentiments Exactly.  We ask that you add a sentiment to the front of your project.  We are sponsored by the oh so funny and talented Graphicat Designs.  Head over there, the sentiments are fabulous.

For my card I used this awesome image from Rubbernecker Stamps.  I have had it for ages but haven't used it.  I thought the new sentiment from Graphicat went great with it.  My hands were shaking when I took the picture so if you are having trouble reading it it says "When We Are Together, We Are Way COOLER Than Everyone Else!"  Perfect for the image huh?  I used Copics to color the image and I popped it up with SU dimensionals.  The sentiment was cut out with an EK Success punch.

I finished this card after going to dinner with my husband, sister and niece.  We had a great time.  My sister and I have both been sick for weeks and we could finally taste and smell so we went out for Mother's Day.  I just wish my kids could have gone.  Unfortunately, the public doesn't think my feathered babies are real children but I know better.

Please head over to Corrosive Challenges and see what everyone else has made for your inspiration and join us in the fun. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
