SFC122 Tickle My Fancy

Hi everyone! Happy Halloween! It's me, Holly filling in for Marlene today. Marlene has been without power since Saturday due to a snow storm so I am posting her challenge today. It's such a fun one, and one that is right up my alley - Tickle My Fancy - make a funny card - one that will tickle both Marlene's and my fancy. You know that we both love cards that make us laugh. Use a funny image, or use a funny sentiment, or use both! Just make us laugh!

Before I show you the fabulous cards the Marvels have done, let me give a big thanks and congratulations to our winner of last week's Saying Thanks challenge, Karen Gumino! Karen's cute card using Candy Corn Girl captured our hearts by combining thank you and Halloween. Karen, Please contact Holly for your image.
Thanks for joining the challenge!

To win you must use a Squigglefly image.
Freebies are available on the Squigglefly website.

Thanks to everyone who participated last week's challenge
(but we would love to see even more players)!
We can't wait to see your projects for this week!

Today is the last day to buy images at Squigglefly to be entered into the Mega Giveaway! If there are any images you've been thinking about getting, today would be the day to do it because the giveaway would be awesome to win! Three winners will be announced tomorrow!

Here's this week's challenge:
SFC122 - Tickle My Fancy

Create a card that is funny by using a funny image or sentiment. Anything that will make us laugh and make Marlene smile despite being without electricity!

has used Marlene's Cranky Calvin image and come up with a pretty funny sentiment for it! I love the paper pieced robe she made for him and the embossed background is great!

Deena Perreault use Brian Lock's cute November Turkey to make us laugh by pairing it with a clever sentiment! I love the silverware embellishing she did with this!

Next up is Jane Westling who used an image that's funny all by itself. This Soaking Kitty is also one of Brian Lockhart's. Jane went the extra mile by creating an easel card! What a fun way to rib a friend about a blunder!

Next up is Laura Boyd who definitively made me laugh with Marlene's Gassy Gramps image! I love the sentiment Laura came up with for this and her choice of papers and layout is great!

And now we come to Rhonda Zmikly's creation. Again, the sentiment has me rolling on the floor, and I love the little dimensional bird she has added ! Rhonda used Brian's November Turkey to make her card. I also love the added cornstalks and pumpkin!

And since I'm doing this post I'll post my creation a little early.

I also used one of Brian Lock's (are we seeing a pattern here?) image. this one is Party Pig, but I colored it so it looks more like a cow. If you overlook the curly tail, I think it will pass for a cow. If you want to see the punch line you will have to visit my blog - yes I'm actually that much of a comment whore (did I really say that? yes I did because I think that in itself will make Marlene laugh! )

Everyone can use a laugh now and then, so why not surprise someone with a card for no reason other than to bring a smile to their face? Get busy and make something! Thanks for viewing our creations and I hope we started your day with a smile!

Happy Halloween!

1) If you up-load your creation to any on-line photo galleries, please use SFC122 for your keywords when loading your creation photo there.
1b) please leave a comment on the challenge blog post so that someone from Squigglefly can validate your entry for the prize.
2) You don't *have* to include a Squigglefly image on your creation, but in order to qualify for the prize you will need to use one! You can also combine SF images with non-SF images to qualify! Don't have one? There are several FREEBIES you can grab!
