Squigglefly Challenge #42, SFC4212 Fall Time Challenge

Welcome to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!

Are you ready for this week's challenge? Well first let me tell you about last week's winner.  The contest last week was to create a card that was related to music.  The winner was Mette who made a stunning winter wonderland card (click here to see) using Inger Harding's wonderful paper and embellishment set called Winter Wonderland Papers.

  The winner can contact Holly at, for your prize.
Now, on to this week's challenge, SFC4212 Fall Time!

This week's theme is Fall Time.  There two choices that you can make you card in our "FALL TIME" challenge
EITHER Use all fall colors, browns, reds, oranges, yellows, etc... (and your card can be any topic, including fall of course)  OR  Use any Fall themed holiday/topic such as Halloween, Thanksgiving, Harvest, Pumpkins, Leaves, etc...(and color you card as you like!)

Let's start with some examples made by the Holley Hobbyists:

Pat Martin created this Fall creation using wonderful Halloween themed stamps.The character she is using is called Ghost Vampire by artist Denise Clemmensen. What a spooky card with stunning color for Halloween.  What a great stand up card with nice dimension.

Jan Marshall  created a beautiful card using warm Halloween themed colors and a teenage theme.  This great image is called Goth Girl by artist Fawn Palmer.  I love the great saying "Oh My Goth"  Sounds just like something kids would say. And are't those flowers amazing?

Elizabeth Hart designed this wonderful Halloween themed card in wonderful fall oranges and greens using an image called Quilty Pumpkin.  This stamp is from artist Fawn Palmer.  What a great dimensional card with beautiful printed papers and a perfect pumpkin center. What cheer!

Charlene Mitchell designed this delightful fall card using one of the wonderful Shy Bear stamps. This adorable stamp line is from artist Lynne Stansbery.  The stamp is called Bouquet Bear.  I love her amazing fall colors and the beautiful frame surrounding her image.  

Lisa Minkler crafted this stunning card using a great image from artist Cheryl Alger. He's called Noah and his Autumn Leaves.  Her card is perfect for this challenge, full of fall fun and fall color!  WOW.  Check out the amazing fall background.  Aren't you just wow'ed with her coloring of Noah?

Lisa also created this stunning Halloween theme creation  for this week using a wonderful image from artist Denise Clemmensen called Scared Cat on a Pumpkin.  What a great gift bag!  Is it filled with Tricks or Treats?  I am guessing Treats...Lisa is just too sweet!

Tammy Hair created this sweet card using an adorable image from artist Cheryl Alger.  Her card is filled will fall colors and a fall image.  This stamp is called Polly and her Pumpkin.  Look at that sweet little girl, just imagining what she is going to make with that pumpkin!

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  used a great image from artist Cheryl Alger called Charlie Wicked Witch of the West.  I don't know how wicked she looks, perhaps a little mischievous, but she sure is the cutest witch around.  What a wonderful image for Halloween which is just over a week away now.
I hope these cards have inspired you to make an inspired card this week.  You are always welcome to play no matter what images you use, but to be eligible for the prize, please use a stamp from Squigglefly!
