Challenge #142 - Love Bites

PLEASE NOTE: The challenge this fortnight is "LOVE BITES", not love. Entries that do not meet the challenge theme will be removed. Thank you for your understanding.

Welcome to a new month and a new Corrosive Challenge! February is here and has already brought some changes to our team. Debra and Katja have both decided to step down due to other obligations. Please join me in saying good-bye and wishing them the very best in all their future endeavors! We also have one new member to welcome! Please say hello to my good friend Jasmine (aka Jazzy T or Jasminnie)! She is new to the world of blogging and challenges, but I know you will all love her! Please visit her blog, Wasted Scraps, to leave her some love!

And we have a winner to announce from January's challenges! The lucky crafter who wins 5 digis of choice from Kenny K is Tracy MacDonald! She also has the opportunity to be our guest designer for March! Congratulations, Tracy!

A new month brings with it not only changes, but a new sponsor! And it is another fabulous company! Please welcome our sponsor for February, Tiddly Inks!

Owner/artist Christy Croll is a self-trained illustrator who likes simple, cute and quirky drawings with a sense of humor. Here is a little bit about herself in her own words:

"I draw what amuses me, which means some days it is quirky and cute and other days I come up with a bit of twisted gothic feel. I hope you like them as much as I do. My personal professional illustration portfolio can be found at I have one daughter who makes me smile, inspires me, and drives me batty as she is too smart to be her age. LOL For so many reasons, she is my everything and most of my illustrations revolve around something she did or said. The rest of the time, they are inspired by other people's kids and animals...maybe yours. My life is too short not to be doing something I love, and that is what art is for me: It makes me smile; it makes me laugh and without a doubt it is something I love. And if my art makes you smile, then I have just doubled the fun."

Tiddly Inks has graciously offered a $10 gift voucher for their on-line shop as our prize this month!

Now, I bet you are just chomping at the bit to find out what the challenge is as I'm sure the title intrigued you! Our theme for this fortnight is "Love Bites". We thought we'd have a little fun this challenge. Valentine's Day is approaching. Most of us know that. But what about those of us who don't have a special someone to share this {dreaded} holiday of hearts and flowers? Or those that do and wish we didn't? Or those that love vampires? Unrequited love? Love lost? Or you always fall for tall, dark, and uh, blood-thristy? Well, ladies, this challenge is dedicated to you! We want to see some creativity on this one! Speaking of which, let's see what the design team gals have for us in the way of inspiration:
