Squigglefly Challenge #20, SFC2013 Man Up!

Welcome to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!

Hello everyone! Are you ready for this week's challenge? First let me tell you last week's winner.
 We had a fun contest last week to use a pocket somewhere on your card.  The winner was Suz, TampaStamper12 who used an adorable image called the Turtle Express.

Please contact Holly at for your prize.
This week's challenge is SFC2013 Man up!

 With Father's day coming soon in June, this week's challenge is to create a card for dear ol' dad (or grandpa, or that hubby,...).  We of course always love a Squigglefly image, it's not required to play, but to be eligible for the prize, must be included.
Let's start with some inspiration from the Holley Hobbyists:

Pat Martin crafted this beautiful card using a great image from artist Diana Carubia.  This image is called "I just called to say," what dad wouldn't love a phone call on Father's Day?  Just perfect, Pat!!

Jan Marshall  created this wonderful card using Mikey Cat from artist Dawn Collins.  This image comes facing both directions, which she took advantage of using both images!  Perfect.  Lots of Dad's deserve a trophy, or even more so, a gorgeous handmade card like this on Father's Day.

Elizabeth Hart designed a lovely scenic card using an image from artist Lynne Stansbery called Just Sailing Along.  Don't you love the layering on the plants? It really makes them stand out.  Those buttons are just too adorable.
Charlene Mitchell used an stunning image from Lynne Stansbery Shy Bear Collection.  This one is called Up A Creek.  Just perfect for a Father's Day Card, don't you love the cute little frogs on there?
Darlene Pavlick crafted this adorable card using a wonderful image from Cheryl Alger.  She's called Ride Em Cowboy.  Wouldn't a dad love this card from his little girl?

Tammy Hair created a beautiful card and she made the image look just like a photo, I love that layout. This image comes from artist Lynne Stansbery and it's called A Man and His Grill. In addition to the cute saying she shows, it comes with 3 more sayings that are perfect for father's!  Stunning work Tammy.

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  used a great image from artist Dawn Collins.  This adorable image is called Deefur.  As everyone says, Dog is man's best friend, I know that goes for my dad.
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!

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 SFC2013 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!
