Corrosive Challenge #191 All Work and No Play

Good morning everyone.  I am back with another awesome challenge from Corrosive Challenges.  The challenge is titled All Work and No Play.  All you have to do to enter is use an image that depicts a job or career.  Our sponsor for this challenge is:

KennyK is one of my favorites.  I was so happy to join KennyK's Krafty Krew this year.  They were kind enough to supply the Corrosive Challenges design team with work related images.  I was given this wonderful soldier image.  I must say this image was quite challenging for me.  I don't usually do masculine cards and have never tried to color camouflage. It was much more difficult than I had anticipated.  I think I did a good job for my first try.  I would like to take just a moment to thank all the members of the military that put their lives on the line for us every single day.  Thank you all.

Please head over to Corrosive Challenges and check out what the rest of our amazing design team has created for your inspiration.  We can't wait to see what you create.  The prize for this challenge is 3 cool digital images from KennyK.  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

My First KennyK Post!!!

Happy New Year again!.  This is my second post of the day and I have a big announcement.  I made KennyK's Krafty Krew.  I did very little crafting last year to give myself a break.  I am now ready to get back to business.  The first challenge for 2014 is Anything Goes with a optional twist of adding Sparkle.  I was so excited to start working with the Krew that I ended up making 3 cards before I got it the way I wanted it.  

KennyK was one of the first companies I fell in love with the day I did my first search for digital images online.  My husband is a huge fan as well.  In fact, he actually picked out this image for me to work with.  I colored it in honor of my sister.  I also want to thank her for all the help she gives me.  I have a very busy schedule and am the most unorganized person on the planet.  Robin keeps me updated on challenges and online comings and goings.  Thanks Robin.  This image is like looking in a mirror for you isn't it?  

The prize for this challenge is 3 digis, 5 if you incorporate the twist. Awesome right?

Please head over and check out what the rest of KennyK's Krafty Krew has created for your inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

New Beginnings

Happy New Year!!!  I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas.  I had a nice quiet one with my sister and niece.  My husband went to see his family so the three of us had lasagna and went to see a movie.  Very low-key and a lot of fun.  Now it's time to get back to business.  My first post of the year is for Corrosive Challenges and we are sponsored by A Day for Daisies.  

We were given the opportunity to pick the image we wanted from ADFD.  The theme for this challenge is New Beginnings.  When I saw this image, I knew what I wanted to do right away.  My sister-in-law, Sherrie, and my brother are in the process of divorcing.  They have three beautiful daughters that we all love very much.  I am sorry to say that my brother seems to have forgotten he has children.  Sherrie and the girls will be just fine though.  They have each other and my sister and her daughter live with them as well.  All those women under one roof.  Holy cow.  I colored the images to look like them.  I wanted to include a picture of them but one of the girls, Kennedie, refused to pose.  Oh Kennedie!

The prize for this challenge is a $12 gift voucher.

Please head over to the Corrosive Challenges blog and check out what the design team has created for your inspiration.  Then join us in the challenge.  I can't wait to see what New Beginning you create.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great day.
