Boo and Snooky-DT Card for The Corrosive Challenge Blog





I hope everyone had their fill of love and chocolates last week!
We celebrated Valentine's Day by ordering in Chinese from our favorite restaurant. 
I plan on buying some half price chocolates tomorrow.
It's just safer for everyone if there's chocolate in the house...know what I mean?
I've been busy making Valentine cards for the kids and grandkids  and didn't make a Valentine for my husband this year.
I was thinking of giving him the same one I gave him last year, but I already gave him that one two years in a row! He didn't notice last year so of course I had to  make a big deal about it and now he's on to me!

Today I'm sharing the card I made for challenge #193 at The Corrosive Challenge Blog.
"In Stitches"

I love these whimsical digis and today my card features
I decided on a monochromatic color scheme because I just couldn't decide what colors to use.
For this image I used all of my warm grey Copics.
The paper is from  TH paper pack, and the sentiment is from Kraftin Kimmie Birthday Trinkets.
I was so delighted with how my card turned out that I proudly showed it to my husband who's comment was,"Nice, what's it for?
I said. " A chellenge!" (in a you should know that voice)
He replies, "yes I know but what is the theme?"
I think for a second and shake my head!" I can't believe it!" I said,"It's in stitches! And I just realized I didn't add any stitches!!!"
I had left almost no room on the card to add any stitching so I added as much faux stitching as I possibly could by piercing holes close to the edge and added  black ink for thread.
Wow, it looks just like the stitching I would have done if I had used my machine! A total train wreck! Just the way I wanted it to look!

Hi Debora, very funny blog!Your card is stunning too, it looks like it cam out of a very old fairy tale book, I had a very old music book with fairy tunes and this card reminds me of the illustrations in it. LOVE the snail. Beautiful colouring too. Thank you for sharing with us at Make it Monday. Have a great week
