Squigglefly Challenge #127 - SFC127 - Based on a Song

Happy Monday! Time for a new Squigglefly Challenge!

Time for us to announce the winner of last week's Winter Wonderland Challenge
(one of our most poular challenges ever!)
This week's winner is: NanaConnie
NanaConnie created an arctic scene using"Polar Christmas" by artist Marla Shega.
NanaConnie, please contact Holly for your image.
Thanks for joining the challenge!

To win you must use a Squigglefly image (our free digi images count, too!)

Thanks to everyone who participated last week's challenge.
We can't wait to see your projects for this week!

Here's this week's challenge:
SFC127 - Based on a Song!
Create your project based on song lyrics- Rock, Pop, Disco- any song that inspires you!
(HINT- A Christmas song could inspire a holiday card, Happy Birthday or
He's a Jolly Good Fellow could inspire a birthday card.)
The name of the song DOES NOT need to appear on your actual project-
but please tell us which song inspired you!

Pat was inspired by the song, "Puff the Magic Dragon" and she used the image "Christmas Dragon" drawn by artist Rachel Goble. Just love how the dragon is just chilling on the fence with the gifts. Can you believe this is Pat's first easel card?

Debbie was inspired by the classic, "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" so she used "Kris Kringle" by artist Marla Shega. Love the vintage look of Santa combined with the embossing.

Peggy was inspired by the song, "Feliz Navidad" so she made her card using "Here We Come A-Caroling" by artist Lynne Stansbery. Interesting bands of color and how about those angled letters?

Tammy shows us her sense of humor from her choice of her inspiration song: "In Heaven There Ain't No Beer" and from her image choice: "Glad Tidings and Good Beer" by artist Suzanne Urban. Beautiful coloring and I love the clean and simple lines (and they are straight- amazing with all that beer available!)

Holley was inspired by the song, "O' Christmas Tree" and she used the image "Trimming the Tree" drawn by artist Rachel Goble. I love the extra touch of elegance from the scalloped borders and the tiny red buttons.

Stephanie was inspired by the song, "Let it Snow" and caught the spirit with an image by artist Cheryl Alger called "Catching Snow". The kraft background is the perfect way to pop the brightly colored layers. Very vibrant and fun!

Terri turned the lights down and used the song, "Santa Baby" by singer Eartha Kitt. Terri chose "Badonkadonk" by artist Chesney Young and accessorized with "Santa Hat Accessory" by artist Crissy Armstrong. Terri added flocking to the Santa hat and glitz to the dress. Who are you giving this card to Terri?

Heather (that's me) was inspired by the song, "Deck the Halls", so I used, "Deck the Halls" by artist Robin Willis. I love adding texture to metallic paper.

The term for our current Squigglefly design team will be coming to a close at the end of the year. This challenge is the last challenge for Heather's Headliners and I would like to take this opportunity to thank my team: Tammy, Holley, Stephanie, Terri, Pat, Debbie and Peggy for all for their creativity and hard work during this design term. I would also like to thank my co- design team lead Marlene for her sense of humor and dedication to building the best design team. Thanks to Holly for giving me the chance to be a design team lead for Squigglefly. It has been an interesting 6 months and Holly, Marlene and I have shared many laughs, a few tense moments, and experienced some stuff that defies explanation but what an interesting journey it has been! Thanks to the whole team and to everyone who plays in our weekly challenges.

***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!

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 SFC127 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!
