Squigglefly Challenge #14, SFC1412 Orange you Glad I didn't say Banana?

Welcome to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!

Are you ready for a new contest? Well, first let me announce who won last week! Last week's challenge was to CASE a design team member's work. The Winner is Shirley Qu! She made this wonderful card using Old Barn from artist Lynne Stansbery.

Thanks to everyone for playing, its so much fun to see another crafter's work get CASEd and to see what someone does with the idea. Please contact Holly at, for your prize.
Now, on for this week's challenge, SFC1412, this week the theme is
"Orange you Glad I didn't say Banana?"

Ever had a little kid tell you a knock knock joke? Well here's one of the favorites:
Knock Knock; Who's There? Knock, Knock; Who's There? Banana. Banana Who?
Knock Knock; Who's There? Knock, Knock; Who's There? Banana. Banana Who?
Knock Knock....this will go on as the child giggles and the adults get bored....
at some point the kid will finally say
"Orange", Orange Who? "Orange, you glad I didn't say Banana?"
ha ha ha....then much like any child, they immediately start the SAME knock knock joke over.

So, this week's Squigglefly challenge is called "Orange you glad I didn't say Banana?" You can participate in this week's challenge using ANY of THESE THREE options:
1) you can either use the color scheme orange and yellow on your card; or
2) you can use any PUNNY joke/saying on your card; or
3) use any fruit themed image or embellishment on your card.

So, show me your best work and as always, we would love for you to include a wonderful image from Squigglefly; to win a prize you must do so, but it is not required to participate. Now, Let's start out with some fun samples to inspire you this week from the Holley Hobbyists.

Pat Martin made a wonderful summery card using a great image called Beach Babies by artist Alecia Blake and she added a delightful punny funny saying to it too.

Theresa Gerber made this fun card using Humpty Dumpty Falls by artist Monica Estill! She colored up the egg in orange, which is perfect for the challenge and for the Easter holiday, then she added a punny sentiment "Cracking up over you." Her card actually fills in TWO items of the challenge.

Shawna Sealander two different cards, one using the color combo and one using a very punny joke! The first card using this adorable teddy bear called Balloon Bear from artist Fawn Palmer. Check out the beautiful paper layering she did. Note: this stamp also includes a wonderful saying with it that is not shown here, it says "I miss you already."
Inside her card she added this funny saying:Her second card uses a very PUNNY saying "Shoot the Moon!" and she pairs it inside the card with a wonderful stamp from artist Monica Estill. What do you think this card looks like, hmmm?
Sure gave me a chuckle....Here's the inside of her card, the stamp inside is called Shoot the moon, and I love the sentiment that she added.

Charlene Mitchell created a beautiful card called An Upside Down Moment by artist Alecia Blake. Isn't that little girl adorable? I can SO see that little girl telling you a knock-knock joke!!
Tammy Hair made this adorable card in yellow and oranges, the image and the wonderful saying come from artist Marla Shega and it's called Hannah's Hat. Too cute!
And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog) completed both items 1 and 2 in the challenge by making my card both yellow and orange AND by adding a punny saying too. This brand new image is called Tulip display by artist Lynne Stansberry.
I hope these cards have inspired you to make a card this week for the "Orange you Glad I didn't say Banana Challenge." Don't forget...use yellow/orange or add a funny pun to your card or show me some fruit....can you do all three? I challenge you....
