Squigglefly Challenge #48, SFC4812 Winter Wonderland

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 Glitter and Bling.  Weren't all the creations full of shimmer? The winner in last week's challenge was Leslie Miller for her beautiful creation using Holiday Bells by Marlene Shega.

  The winner can contact Holly from Squigglefly at, for your prize.
Now, on to this week's challenge, SFC4812 Winter Wonderland!

This week's theme is winter wonderland. Anything winter theme is great, whether the image is winter themed or not--you can always add some winter themed paper or other winter embellishments to turn your card into a winter wonderland card!

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

Pat Martin created this cheerful card with a bright colors and beautiful snowflakes.  This adorable image comes from artist Cheryl Alger and is called Angeld up Christmas Caroler.  Who wouldn't want this little girl to sing at their door?  I'd call this card a wonderful winter greeting!

Jan Marshall  created a wonderful card with an adorable saying "Winter is a real hoot!"  I am thinking if I ever saw an owl with a hat and scarf set like that I sure would get a laugh!  How great is that?  This image is from artist Fawn Palmer and comes with the saying shown.  It's called "A Winter Owl Too."
Elizabeth Hart designed a wonderful winter filled card using and adorable holiday image.  I love the amazing snowflakes that she decorated her card with, matched with some fun ribbon and amazing papers.  She even made the image look like it's filled with snow in the air!  Beautiful.  This image is called Honk for the Holidays by Fawn Palmer.  It comes with 2 sentiments (not shown).
Charlene Mitchell designed this pretty card using amazing printable papers from the Inger Harding Paper Collection Joyful Christmas Collection . The image she is using is called Baby it's Cold Outside from artist Fawn Palmer.  What a delightful combination.

Lisa Minkler crafted this stunning card using a great image from artist Diane Caurbia. It's called Topiary Ted.  Isn't this creation amazing? I love her stitching and the gorgeous ribbons and beautiful bling.  What a wonderful sentiment, Oh Christmas Tree... (But if you check it out, Topiary Ted is making a car, this image would be perfect for any time of the year...or do you think he's just giving SANTA a big 'ol hint?)

Tammy Hair created this heart warming card using a great stamp from artist Fawn Palmer called Libby and her Penguin.  She added a great sentiment "Christmas brings out the kid in us all."  How dear is that?  Wouldn't we all want a pet penguin?

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  used a great image from artist Diane Carubia called Big Sister Babs.  This image doesn't have to be used for Christmas theme, but I colored her up in light blue/greens and added her to a snowflake card with flocked handmade paper from India and adorable tiny decorative buttons.  She sure looks Christmas-y now!
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!
