Welcome to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!
Are you ready for a new contest? Well, first let me say who won last week. Thanks for all who participated last week in our first contest of 2012. The winner is #14 Allie!! Allie made a beautiful Many Thanks card with that adorable frog! She used Froggy Flowers from artist Eline Pellinkhof.

Now, on for this week's challenge, this week the theme is called "Button it Up!"
This fun topic has a double meaning, either you can make a winter theme card using any image that makes use of a winter coat, Brrrrr; or you can totally go in the other direction and use a button theme. By button theme, I mean use anything with buttons: real buttons, big buttons, tiny buttons, button stamp images, button printed ribbon, button brads, button sayings, just show me the buttons!
Here's some wonderful samples to inspire you. Check out the fun ideas from this year's team, the Holley Hobbyists:
Pat Martin used a wonderful winter image called Polar Bears. That sure makes me need a coat!
Theresa Gerber used The Old Sot and Household Sayings 1 & 2 from Lynn Stansbury
Shawna Sealander did an amazing button covered card and an adorable button saying inside her card using the image "Daisy & Daphne" by Fawn Palmer. Here's two images showing the front of her card and the great saying she added.
Charlene Mitchell used Shy Bear image "Two to Tango" and saying "My Punny Valentine 6" from artist Lynn Stansbury Tammy Hair made this adorable button adorned card with tiny buttons using a great image and matching saying called "Cute Crawlers"
And lastly, I (Holley from Holley's Blog) made this cutie from a wonderful set of images called "Birdhouses"
I hope these samples leave you guys with some wonderful ideas for making a card in our challenge this week.
Here's some rules for playing in our challenge:
We realize that many people don't have blogs, but instead participate in our challenges using on-line galleries. 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 SFC0212 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 from the Squigglefly store, hop on over there. Those images will qualify you for the prize.
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 up...so 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.)
We can't wait to see your project!
