SFC101 - Squigglefly Challenge Playing Favorites.

Today's challenge over at the Squigglefly Challenge Blog is 'Playing Favorites'. Use your Favorite Squigglefly Image, and have some fun! The image I used is def one of my favorites but really more a favorite artist - Cheryl Alger.  I absolutely ADORE her images and this one being no exception with HAPPY FOURTH, which I used on my card for today's challenge.

Before we get to the card I have some Sad News BUT some Good News as well. 

Lets get the Sad News outta the way.  Unfortunately today will be my last day as a DT Member for Squigglefly :( My Term is over and after a very hard decision I decided that I would not be able to continue on for another Term.  It was a difficult decision because I loved being part of this team, but with Summer upon us my availability is not what it was for the Fall and Winter. I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to all the lovely ladies at Squigglefly for the wonderful and fun experiences I had during my Term.

Now onto the good news before the waterworks start. We have wonderful new DT Members that will be starting today.  Please make sure you head on to the Squigglefly Blog and meet the new talented DT. You guys will be in for a great surprise at the talent that is signed up for the new DT Term.

Okay onto the card lol. 

I adore This image. I used my new TCP die for the Easy Rosette and it sure was easy lol.



I added lost and lots of Stickles as always.


I have also been using a lot of Dew Drops as well.  I loved how they looked added to the Craft Paper.

 Remember, we have a great prize for this weeks Challenge winner so make sure you enter a card for a chance to win!

Thank you for the wonderful experience to everyone at Squigglefly - I will miss you guys!

SCF101 - What holiday is it?

Hi :)

Today we have a GREAT new Challenge going on at the Squigglefly Challenge Blog, today called 'What Holiday is it'?....Use an image for any holiday, but make it a card for a different holiday than it was intended. What an awesome challenge, so different than I'm used to. I enjoyed it so much - this one really gets you thinking. 

Here is my card I created...

My poor Halloween pumpkins think it's Halloween, BUT it's the 4th of July lol. I have to say this card took on a mind of it own. I wanted it really simple, but as I put it together it just got outta control lol! 

What an awesome challenge! The flag in the lower left hand of the card was made from scraps. It was really simple. I just cut some scraps to make the stripes, and used mini white buttons and rhinestones to make the stars.  Easily put together in a few minutes.

I hope you all join us for the challenge. This one is a fun one :)
