Squigglefly Challenge #10, SFC1013 Spring is Near

Welcome to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!

Hello everyone! 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 make a card using ribbon.  The winner was Lizzies Craft Space she made a stunning mother's day card using Lynne Stansbery's image I miss you.
  The winner can contact Holly from Squigglefly at, for your prize.
Now, on to this week's challenge, SFC1013 Spring is Near!

This week we want you to show us what you love about spring.  So to make a card for this week's challenge, create something wonderful in anything spring theme, that could include flowers, gardening, St Patrick's Day, Easter, even wonderful spring colors...have more spring ideas, surprise us!  We can't wait to see what you make.
Let's start with some inspiration from the Holley Hobbyists:

Pat Martin crafted this wonderful Easter theme card using a super cute image from artist Fawn Palmer.  This stamp is called Over an Egg.  Isn't he adorable?  I just love her beautiful papers and embellishments.  This cute image also comes with two sayings "Happy Easter" and "Hippity Hoppity Easter is on its way."

Jan Marshall  created this simply elegant style card using a wonderful new image from artist Diane Garrison.  The stamp is called Sweet Bunny.  I think this image can be used for Easter or just as it has been used here...SO beautiful, don't you love the coloring on the bunny?

Elizabeth Hart designed a perfect long card using Cheryl Alger's image "Bella's Flowers."  Her card just sings spring time with the beautiful bright colors and flowers and of course, Bella herself.

Charlene Mitchell is out this week, so we have a great guest designer Debbie Ebat who crafted this lovely Easter theme card for our challenge. She's using a fun image from Fawn Palmer called On an Egg.  I love the sentiment she used! it comes with the image when you buy it, and there's an additional saying too, it's "Happy Easter to an egg'stra special person."  So adorable.  Don't you love the embossing on the bottom layer on her card.  Thanks for joining us Debbie!!

 Darlene Pavlick crafted this stunning card that just flowers out into spring time.  This image is called A Message from Mouse designed by artist Diane Carubia. I love the embossed circle she put her sentiment on.  Just gorgeous!! Who wouldn't want flowers from that mouse?
Tammy Hair created this adorable Easter themed card.  Don't you just love the Easter egg on there? She is using a sweet image and the matching saying called Easter Chicken from artist Diane Garrison.  How perfect are they together?  You get both the image and the saying for only $3.00

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  used a great image from artist Diane Carubia.  This spring filled image is called Fairy Beary Hugs.   How adorable!  I added a simple vellum sticker for the sentiment. 
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 at least one stamp from Squigglefly!
