Squigglefly Challenge #124 - SFC124 - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Happy Monday and welcome to this week's Squigglefly Challenge.

Before we announce this week's challenge, please join me in thanking and congratulating the winner of last week's NO PATTERNED PAPER challenge, KAREN! Karen's card featured 
Deck the Halls by artist Robin Willis.  I just LOVE the gorgeous pleating in this creation.
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!

Here's this week's challenge:
Happy Birthday to me! Ha ha ha...November is my birthday month, so I'm selfishly asking to see YOUR birthday card creations. I'll just pretend they're all for me! Make a birthday card for a woman, a man, a child or a pet! Let's see a birthday card!
This week's samples were created by my team, Marlene's Marvels.  I hope you enjoy their creations as much as I did!

JANE created this whimsical card, using Wanda by artist Suzanne Urban.
I'm so glad she used PURPLE in her card - my favorite color!

Deena used Birthday Cake Desire by artist Cheryl Alger in her adorable card.  The fabulous patterned paper she used really highlights that cake well!

Rhonda created with Bored Beatrice by artist Marlene S(yeah, that's me!)
This image is actually a set which comes with a different sentiment, but 
I just giggled out loud when I saw she had come up with her own 
funny sentiment!

Jan used Rock it Out by artist Chesney Young for her card.
I just love the banner she created.  So crafty!

Rebecca used images from the Birds of a Feather set by artist Bonita Jones.
Her soft coloring technique makes this little bird even cuter, don't you think?!

Of course, you know I always save the raunchiest for last.
And you know I am the culprit who usually creates the raunchiest cards.
This is your warning.  If you don't like raunchy, you may skip quickly
past this card.  Otherwise, be prepared to be mooned!
MARLENE (that's me) used images from You Deserve the Moon set.
(The image is one of my own doodles.) 
Happy Birthday to me (soon)!  I mooned myself.  Yeah. That was intelligent.

***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 SFC124 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!)
