Merry Christmas!!!

The Corrosive Challenge is taking a break for the holidays. We will return January 8th with new challenges and sponsors for 2012! We'd like to take a moment to thank all of you for your support this year! We love seeing your creations! To all our fabulous and generous sponsors - you are amazing and we couldn't run this challenge blog without you! I'd also like to thank our wonderful design team.... Linda, Debra, and Kellie, thank you for all you do, ladies! And lastly, I'd like to ask that everyone send some healing wishes to Susan of Susan's Crafty Chaos! She has been laid up with a broken leg and is very much missed here! Get well soon, Susan!

From all of us here at The Corrosive Challenge, Merry Christmas to you and yours! May your holidays be wrapped in the warmth of family and friends! And may your New Year be safe, happy, and bright!

Challenge #139 - Anything EXCEPT Christmas and Design Team Call

Welcome to our last Corrosive Challenge of the year! We will be taking a little hiatus for the holidays so the design team can enjoy time with family and friends and rest up for the wonderful things we have planned for you for 2012! Before we get to our new theme, though, I want to thank the few brave souls who attempted our "CASE a Design Team Member" challenge. Some of you really seemed to enjoy it!

Our winner for November is: Sarah of Aunt Bee's Pickles! You can see her adorable Pilgrim Sheep card here.
Sarah, you have won a $20 gift voucher from Inktegrity! You also have the opportunity to be our guest designer for January. Please contact Regan at charmed_stamping(at)charter(dot)net to make arrangements for your prize.

A new month means a new sponsor and do we have something fabulous lined up for you! We are proud to welcome Krista Smith of Saturated Canary digis (and Simply Sassy rubber stamps)! Krista is amazing and if you'd like to learn more about this dynamic wife, mother, artist, and fashion lover visit her blog Saturated Canary. Krista has generously agreed to provide our winner for this challenge with two Saturated Canary images of choice from her shop.

And now on to our challenge! Is it me or does time seem to be going by faster these days? It seems like we just started the last challenge and *poof* it's over and time for a new one! The hustle and bustle of the holiday season always seems to have this effect, doesn't it? With all the planning and prep that goes into to our holiday festivities, we thought you might be on Christmas overload at the moment. After all that decorating, shopping, wrapping, baking, and assorted merry-making we thought you might be just a tad burnt out on all this 'tis the season fa-la-la-la la-la-la-la! So before you go bah hum bug on us, we're going to give you a crafty break from the holidays - an excuse to create "Anything EXCEPT Christmas"! That's right. No holiday stuff AT ALL. Nada. Zip. Zero. Give us birthday. Valentine's Day. Groundhog Day. Whatever your little hearts desire as long as it's NOT any of those December holidays.

We are also looking to expand our design team for 2012! If you love the Corrosive Challenges and want to work with some fabulous digi companies in the new year simply put "DT" after your name when linking your creation. Candidates selected will be notified via e-mail after January 1st to discuss details.

For this fortnight's challenge, the Corrosive design team ladies were lucky enough to each chose an image from Krista shop. Let's see what non-holiday creations they have for you:

Linda's adorable Queen of Hearts card will steal yours!

Regan created a Thinking of You card with the darling image Wispy, a Fairy.

Kellie's cute card uses the image Hot Cocoa, A (chilly) Ragamuffin.

This gorgeous snowy scene is Debra's project using A Winter Ragamuffin.
