Squigglefly Challenge #46, SFC4612 I'm So Thankful!

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 use an image over again in "Oldies but Goodies."  The winner in last week's challenge was Sandi who created a delightful card using Always Do Your Own Thing by artist Lynne Stansbery.

  The winner can contact Holly from Squigglefly at, for your prize.
Now, on to this week's challenge, SFC4612 I'm So Thankful!

This week's theme is all about thanks.  You have one of THREE choices:  1) make a thank you card;  OR 2) Make a Thanksgiving themed card; OR 3) make a card ABOUT something that you are so very thankful for (and think about adding a sentiment to match). For example, a card with a dog and a cute saying that says "God loves me, so he sent me this dog to be my guardian angel!"

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

Pat Martin created this cheerful card with a bright colors and amazing feathers.  This stunning image comes from artist Fawn Palmer and is called  Happy Turkey Day.  I'd call this card a wonderful Thanksgiving greeting!

Jan Marshall  created a wonderful Thank You card for Santa himself!  Don't you love her sentiment? This image is called Better Not Pout Santa by artist Cheryl Alger.  What a great way to say thanks (besides leaving out a plate of cookies for santa too)!

Elizabeth Hart designed a wonderful Thanksgiving theme card!  I just love that turkey, though I am guessing any turkey is not very happy that it's thanksgiving!  This sweet image is called Pilgrim with Gun from artist Fawn Palmer.

Charlene Mitchell designed this pretty card using amazing gold borders and wonderful die cutting.  This card is a thank you card and a thankgiving theme card all in one!  The image is by artist Lynne Stansbery and is called A Truly Bountiful Harvest.

Lisa Minkler crafted this stunning tag using a great image from artist Deena Perrault. It's called Snow Globe with Snowman.  Isn't this creation amazing? I love her sparkle and her little saying, "Snow Thankful for you!" Awe....That's the way to create a wonderful Thank You card for someone.

Tammy Hair created this heart warming card using a great stamp from artist Lynne Stansbery.  This stamp is called Devotion and comes with the sentiment she added.  How dear is that?  Sounds like something I would be thankful for!

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  used a great image from artist Fawn Palmer called Let's Talk Turkey.  Doesn't that turkey look good?  This stamp comes with the saying shown on the card.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Now's you chance to make a couple quick cards for the holiday.
I hope these cards have inspired you to make a card to play along 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!
