Challenge # 207 - Let's Hear It For The Boys

Good morning crafty peeps!  We hope everyone is having a wonderful Labor Day weekend.  It's ALWAYS a special treat to get a long weekend, and I'm sure some of you need it already, as many of the kids headed back to school already or are going to this week.  Hopefully you can sneak in some extra crafting in between shopping trips and get togethers!

We have a fun new challenge for you all, "Let's Hear It For The Boys" - create a masculine project, something for a guy of any age.  Sometimes the men and boys don't get enough attention around here, so this one's for the fellas!

A new challenge means a new sponsor, and we have a wonderful company lined up!  Please welcome back Meljen's Designs

Challenge # 206 - "B" Unique

Welcome back, fellow crafters!  We hope everyone is having a lovely weekend.  Although back to school and autumn is looming just around the corner, there is still a little time left to enjoy the summertime, and the green grass and the flowers and the bees.  
And speaking of "B"s, our new challenge is to use three items starting with the letter B (bling, brads, bows, blooms, blossoms, buttons, etc). Get creative!

Of course we are featuring a fabulous artist for our new challenge, and we always enjoy the privilege of working with Dilly Beans as a sponsor.

Megan Suarez is the owner and artist behind these fun and quirky images. She has generously offered 3 images of choice for our winner, as well as providing the design team with images to work with. She has an amazing variety of cute & creepy, whimsical images so head over to her shop to check them out!  You can find them over on Facebook too!  Click HERE to join the group!

Let's take a look at how the team chose to "B" inspirational, using either Dilly Beans images or an image of their choice:

Challenge #205 - Birthdays

Hello!  How is everyone's weekend?  Jam packed with fun, I hope!  And in case that fun includes some crafting we have a new challenge for you here at The Corrosive Challenge!  This fortnight we are welcoming back the wonderfully whimsical Sami Stamps as our sponsor!

Sami Siemers Ratliff is the owner of Sami Stamps, and if the images look a little familiar it is because she is Tammy from A Day For Daisies little sister.  So much talent in one family!  Sami has a Bachelor's Degree in Illustration.  Per her blog, "My inspiration comes from those things around me that make me happy in hopes that it might brighten your day.  We believe in surrounding yourself with the things that inspire and make you happy."

Sami is offering our winner the generous prize of a $12 Gift Certificate to her shop!

In honor of my birthday this week (a few other August babies on the design team!), our challenge theme is "Birthdays".  Simply make a birthday card, any kind for anyone, and enter it for your chance to win!  Please stop by our design team's personal blogs to and leave some love!  And if you visit me at Charmed Stamping you will see that I have a special birthday BLOG CANDY up for grabs!

Now, let's see some birthday wishes from the DT ladies:

using  Comfy Cocoa and My Baby

using Birthday Surprise

using Beautiful Song

using Whiskers Under My Broom

using Bird On My Fairy Toes
