Squigglefly Challenge #128 - SFC128 - Clean & Simple Holiday Theme

This marks our LAST challenge for 2011 
before we all take a break for the holiday season.
(No worries - Squigglefly will be back in January with more challenges.)

Before we announce this week's challenge, please join me in thanking and congratulating the winner of last week's SKETCH challenge, LINDA W.  Linda's card featured Squigglefly's Shy Bear Snowy Playmate image by artist Lynne Stansbery.
LINDA W., please contact Holly for your image.

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

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:
SFC128 - Clean & Simple Holiday Theme
Create a CLEAN and SIMPLE card that reflects the upcoming holiday season, whether it be Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or New Year's. 
Let's see what CAS (clean and simple) means to you!

This is my last post as a Squigglefly Team Leader, and my team's (Marlene's Marvels) final challenge.
I've so enjoyed leading this group and providing these challenges to you all every other week over the last six months, and I know I speak for Heather and her team (Heather's Headliners), as well. 
Thank you Holly, for having given me this opportunity, and thank you, everyone all for your support and for joining in on our challenges!

DEENA, our multi-talented little DT member not only drew this image for Squigglefly, she also made the card!  I love the embossed background and pretty red against contrast against the white.
Image used is COUNTRY CHURCH by artist Deena Perreault.

RHONDA did double duty for us this week.  (She's such a teacher's pet....heehee.)  
For her first card, she used I Heart Christmas Trees by artist Jane Beljo for her clean and simple card.
I love how she used different colors to break up the tree, making that the focus.
 For her second card, she used Christmas Medley, a soon-to-be-released image by artist Jess Holland.
Watch for it in the store soon...perhaps this coming Saturday.  *wink wink

Jan used Rotund Santa by artist Bonita Jones for her card this week.
I don't know about you, but this card just makes me giggle!  I love this little guy, and he's shown off perfectly on this clean and simple creation.

Jane shows us that you don't have to stick with the traditional red/green Christmas colors in order to create a beauty.  She used Candy Canes by artist Lynne Stansbery.

Rebecca added some adorable embellishments to her clean and simple card.  Gotta love that miniature hat & mitts!  She used I Can Explain by artist Chesney Young.

And for my final card,  Marlene (yeah, that's me) used Kris Kringle by artist Marla Shega and Be Naughty by artist Chesney Young.  (The inside reads:  Save Santa the trip!)  The sentiment is not yet available, but will be soon!  (Hint:  Perhaps this coming Saturday?)
This has long been one of my favorite Squigglefly images.  It is so easy to color as there is much pre-shading the artist has done for us in her image.  

***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 SFC128 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 linking tool works sporadically and we don't want to miss your project! (No back-linking please!)
