Squigglefly Challenge #26, SFC2614 Let the Sunshine in

Welcome to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!

Hello everyone! Welcome to this week's Squigglefly Challenge. First let's announce last week's winner.  Last week, our challenge was to create a single layer card.  The winner is Sarah who created a wonderful 4th of July theme card using Lynne Stansbery's Shy Bear God Bless Our Troops.  This week's winner can please contact Holly at for your prize.
We are also sad to say this will be designer Charlene Mitchell's last time with her inspiring creations.  Please leave a comment on this week's posting to wish her well and thank her for her wonderful work.  We know she will continue to be around and join in the fun contests in the future.  We will all miss her.  Next month we have a brand new design team member starting on the Holley Hobbyists, Jen Leeflang. Welcome!
This week's challenge is SFC2414 Let the Sunshine in!

This week the challenge to create card that has the Sun on it.  It can be a die cut, an image, a button, brad or eyelet, even a print on your paper.  Your card does not have to be summer in theme, but please have a sun somewhere. We'd love for you to use a Squigglefly image, to be prize eligible it's required, but everyone is welcome to play along.
Let's start with some great examples from the Holley Hobbyists:
 Pat Martin  created this adorable card in the shape and color of the SUN. Great job, Pat! She's using two adorable images from new artist Sandra Caldwell, Americana Beauty and Firecrakers.

Jan Marshall  created this adorable card and added her own die cut of the Sun. She's using a sweet image from artist Cheryl Alger called  Backpack Max.  Isn't he adorable?  looks like he has a full backpack and an armload of books!

Elizabeth Hart designed this summer day card using a wonderful sun in the background using a great guy from artist James Horvath. This image is called Cool Kid.   Didn't we all know a kid like this growing up?

Charlene Mitchell made a great guy themed birthday card using a brand new image from James Horvath.  This fun card has the sun in the background . Her image is called Cool Kid.  Isn't it fun to see the same image used twice and how different it looks on two different cards?
Darlene Pavlick created this fun filled card with a brand new image from Squigglefly artist Cheryl Alger. She created her own sun as part of her card.  The image scene is comprised of  The Game is in the Player on the right and Pigtail Gabby on the left.  TOO CUTE!!
 Tammy Hair created this adorable card using a beautiful stamp from artist Sandra Caldwell called  Bearly Spring.  Don't you love her gorgeous coloring on this image?


And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog) made a birthday theme card. I used a sun button and put it in the center of my flower.  The image I used is from artist Niina Niskanen and is called Birthday Girl.
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!
