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!
Here's this week's challenge:

Create a thank you note or other way of expressing gratitude!
The holidays are fast approaching- show your family, friends, teachers,
neighbors, church family that you appreciate them.

Now go make something!

This week, we have a guest designer joining us, Kathy Bradley. Kathy won a Squigglefly challenge earlier this summer and we invited her to join us for this week's challenge.
Thanks for joining us Kathy!

Kathy used "Thank You Tree" by artist Michelle Bertuzzi. Look at how she added color to the tree. I love the combo of patterned paper and the graceful drape of the leafy swirl. Well done!

And now for the creations from my team, Heather's Headliners:

Peggy used "Dotted Circle Sentiments" by artist Jess Holland. This card is so elegant with the dainty print, fluffy bow and pearl accents. Lovely!

Terri used "Cottage Window" by design team member and Squigglefly artist, Deena Perreault. Look at how Terri added brick walls and a texture shutter to the cottage. So homey!

Stephanie used "Heartful Wreath" by artist Lynne Stansbery. I love how it is colored and the touch of elegance with the white embossedbackground. Stephanie mentioned she made this card for Breast Cancer Awareness but I could see this versatile image used for Christmas and Valentine's Day as well.

Pat got a little saucy with "Badonkadonk" by Squigglefly co-owner Chesney Young. I can tell Pat had fun making this card just by looking at it! Look at how she paper pieced the dress with marble paper- it looks a lot like fabric. Ooh La La!

Holley used "Eat Beef" by artist Brian Lock. Holley fussy cut the sign and added a border to make a really cute Thanksgiving card. I promise I won't call PETA!

Debbie used "Angelipooch" by artist Crissy Armstrong. Love those shiny wings and the puffy clouds in the sky. This card is a loving tribute to her beloved family pet whom they lost this week. We're all thinking of you and your family, Debbie.

Tammy used "Apple Season" by Deena Perreault. I love the Autumn feel from the perfectly colored apples to the background paper and twine. Anybody else craving an apple?

(that's me) used "Dotted Circle Sentiments" by artist Jess Holland. I went outside the box (bad joke) and made a box and embellished with lots of stars.

Thanks for viewing our creations. Now get off the computer and go make something to share with us!

***Please take a look at the challenge rules- we updated them recently*** We realize that many people don't have blogs, but instead participate in our challenges using on-line galleries and we love that you are helping us spread the word about Squigglefly! However, many of the galleries require passwords and not all of us at Squigglefy belong to every gallery or group. To help us make sure we don't miss your artwork, we are asking that if you do use an online gallery that you leave us a comment on the challenge post. That way we'll be sure to have a member of the Squigglefly team who is a member of that gallery (SCS, CDAC, PCP, etc) can validate your entry.
1) If you up-load your creation to any on-line photo galleries, please use SFC121 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!
3) You have one week to complete the challenge and it will close Sunday evening. The winner will be announced at the same time the new challenge post comes be sure to check back EVERY Monday to see if you are a winner!
4) Please leave a direct link to your entry in the comments below. The our linking tool works sporadically and we don't want to miss your project! (No back-linking please!)

Think gratitude- a thank you note or other way of expressing gratitude

  3. You all made such terrific creations! Yay! to Kathy with her beautiful tree!

    I was going to use the Badonkadonk image until I saw Pat's! That sentiment and dress were just fabulous! I just could not think of another "thank you" sentiment in that ballpark!

    Glad to be in your collective fabulous company!

    Terri / Brat
