Squigglefly Challenge #8, SFC0813 Get in Shape!

Welcome to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!

Hello everyone.  We have some news this week, first we want to thank Lisa M for being on our design team.  We are going to miss her and wish her well and look forward to seeing her join us in the challenges. And now we would like to welcome our newest team member Darlene Pavlick.  I can't wait for you to see her wonderful creations!!  She's joining the Holley Hobbyists with her beautiful cards this week.
 
So, 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 a sentiment.  The winner was Linda O, who created a great card using two Squigglefly images Another Birthday by Joy Hall and Valentine Pup from artist Linda Birkinshaw.
 
  The winner can contact Holly from Squigglefly at usyungs@gmail.com, for your prize.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now, on to this week's challenge, SFC0813 Get in Shape!

This week we want to change the basic shape of our cards.  So, to make a card for this week's challenge, create a card in any size EXCEPT A2 (standard 4.25x5.5 rectangle);  How about a square card or something round, something tall or cut something with a die-cut?  Surprise me....
 
Let's start with some examples made by the Holley Hobbyists:

Pat Martin crafted this beautiful round card using artist Cheryl Alger's adorable teddy bear called Juggling Heart Bear.  Isn't he adorable?  I think this card would have made a great valentine too.  It looks full of love!

 
Jan Marshall  created this, a beautiful wine bottle d├ęcor, and it's not A2 sized! It uses a great image from artist Gayle Search called Vineyards and Grapes.  What a great way to make a card and a gift wrap in one!

 
Elizabeth Hart designed a perfect long card using Gayle Search's image "Vineyards and Grapes." She made a tall card into a long card!  Wonderful idea.  Perfect for a Birthday.
 
Charlene Mitchell designed this pretty card with an adorable image. She's using a brand new image that will go on sale this week when the March stamps are presented this week.  This wonderful stamp is part of a beautiful set of flowers and sentiments designed by artist Elisabeta Kushner.
 
 Darlene Pavlick crafted this stunning card using a Spellbinders die-cutter to create the wonderful shape.  This image is called Plant a Seed of Love designed by artist Cheryl Alger. I love how she made this card a get well card by adding the sentiment.  Stunning work. Welcome to our design team!!

 
Tammy Hair created this adorable heart shaped card. She is using a sweet image from artist Cheryl Alger called Noah's Big Heart.  Don't you love the awesome texture on that heart card?  how about those adorable green hearts that perfectly match his t-shirt?

 
And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  used a great image from artist Fawn Palmer.  This sexy image is called I'll blow you a kiss.  The card itself it 8.5 inches tall and would fit in a standard legal envelope.  The border is punched out and held onto the card with the two spots that have pink hearts.
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!

Welcome to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!

Hello everyone.  Are you ready for this week's challenge? Well, it's going to be a great one.  Last week we didn't have a winner to the challenge, so this week's winner will get a double prize.  That's right, two goodies from the Squigglefly store!
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now, on to this week's challenge, SFC0613 Pink and Black Combo!

To make a card for this week's challenge, please create a card using pink and black.  It's that easy.  As always, we encourage use of a Squigglefly image, to win the prize you must use one, but to play along, it's not required. 
 
Let's start with some examples made by the Holley Hobbyists:

Pat Martin crafted this beautiful card using artist Cheryl Alger's adorable stamp called I love you this much girl.   Doesn't she look great in pink and black?  It's just perfect in polka dots too.  What a great valentine!  Perfect for this week's challenge.
 
Jan Marshall  created a this lovely card with a wonderful image from artist Cheryl Alger.  This image is called Sassy Sally's Heart Balloon.   Jan dressed it up by adding some additional balloons to the one little Sally is holding.  She makes a beautiful birthday card.
 
Elizabeth Hart designed a perfect pink and black card using Have a Heart Boy from artist Cheryl Alger. I love the three pearls she added on the side and the beautiful bow.  Any boy bringing me cookies this week is sweet!
 
Charlene Mitchell designed this pretty card with an adorable image.  Artist Diane Carubia created this image  and it is called Puppy Rose.  I just love her use of Stitching.  In addition to making this a Happy Birthday card, I also think this image would be gorgeous for a Valentine!
 
Lisa Minkler crafted this stunning card using a stamp from newest artist Gayle Search.  This image is called Bush Shack.  I love her amazing coloring and wonderful attention to detail. 
 
Tammy Hair created this cute card using Bandits Mischievous Smile.  How adorable!  That card sure is purrrfect!  But guessing on the smile on that cat's face, he's up to something....wonder what he's got going on for Valentine's day.
 
And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  used a great image(s) from artist Gayle Search from her collection called Cute Elephant Set.  She has a whole bunch of adorable elephants and a couple of matching accessories too!  The whole set is available for only $3.
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!
