Squigglefly Challenge #22, SFC2212 Make Me Laugh

Welcome to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!

Are you ready for this week's challenge? Well, first let me make some announcements.  We are so excited to have some new artists join us starting this week, clicking on their names here will let you go check out their work. Huge welcome to Mike Eustis, Kim Fleming, and Denise Clemmensen

How about last week's winner?  The requirements for last week's challenge were to create a clean and simple card using no pattern paper.  The winner for that challenge is Carolyn, for her beautifully simple yet elegant card (click here) using a wonderful sentiment from artist Lynne Stansbery that says Thinking of You (note:  this image comes with many other sayings along with the cutest cat image).

Please contact Holly at, for your prize.
Now, on to this week's challenge, SFC2212 Make Me Laugh

Do you have a funny image?  How about thinking up a funny saying to go with any image....there's all sorts of great ideas that can go with just about any image out there that would make a person laugh.  Doesn't have to be a joke, perhaps just clever saying that makes a chuckle or a smile. Check out these samples to inspire you from the Holley Hobbyists.

Pat Martin created this pretty card using a beautiful fairy by Daphne van der Zanden called Oh Dear Fairy.  She added a wonderful sentiment. "Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin.  That, or kick-ass red lipstick.  Gwyneth Paltrow"

Theresa Gerber made this super cute card with Sam's Chocolate Cake from artist Cheryl Alger.  Oh my, too adorable. I wish I could grow my own sweets! The image with the candy is called Candy Flower Snail from artist Denise Clemmensen (this image comes in a set with an additional image).  These cuties are just perfect together too.

Shawna Sealander designed a Father's Day theme card using Dad's Naptime by artist Lynne Stansbery.  Then she added a cute saying inside her card, how fun!

Charlene Mitchell shares a wonderful card using new artist Denise Clemmensen's image called Hungry Snail.  She added funny sayings and I love how she used pearls to connect the thought bubbles from her sentiments to the minds of the snail and the plants!  Clever.

Tammy Hair created this delightful card using a Lynne Stansbery image called Come and get it.  She added her own fun sentiment "Treat me kindly, my beloved master, for no heart in the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me."  Awwww.

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  am using a fun image from Lynne Stansbery called Pretty Little Piggies.  You know that sounds like fun itself!  Holly Young created the saying on top and I wrote a funny saying inside the card.
Inside the card (You know this is so true, esp for my feet that go 10-20 MILES per day!):

I hope these cards have inspired you to make a card this week! Now run out and find some fun embellishments, pick out some new shape or size, or just think up something totally different this week and show it to us!  We can't wait to see it.

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 Squigglefly 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 SFC2212 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 be sure to check back EVERY Monday to see if you are a winner!
