Squigglefly Challenge #4, SFC0412 Have a Heart, Please!

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 that included Inchies somewhere on your card.  The winner was Sherry K on Stamping Cowgirl Creations (click here), she made a wonderful card with Baby Hammock from artist  Eline Pellinkhof. 
  The winner can contact Holly from Squigglefly at, for your prize.
Now, on to this week's challenge, SFC0413 Have a Heart, Please!

To make a card for this week's challenge, please create a card and show a heart on it somewhere.  The heart can be in your image, on your paper, or just an embellishment. We can't wait to see what you make!
Let's start with some examples made by the Holley Hobbyists:

Pat Martin crafted this beautiful card using artist Cheryl Alger's Polly's Pink Flower.   This adorable card has beautiful colored hearts and wonderful papers!  Perfect for this week's challenge.

Jan Marshall  created a this beautiful card with a wonderful image from artist Lynne Stansbery.  This image is called First Kiss.  It comes with an adorable saying "Give me a little kiss, will ya, huh?"  I must say looking at the expression on the lady there, makes me think of that saying exactly!  (I am guessing she will give in and give him the kiss.)

Elizabeth Hart designed a wonderful card with a simple sentiment "you."  I love the three hearts she added on the side and the beautiful heart behind the you.  Also, the coloring she did, which makes the image look different, be sure and take a look at Lynne Stansbery's detailed image "Oh Please be Mine,"  when I look at Elizabeth's coloring it looks like a child and her father. Amazing.  If I look at the Lynne Stansbery stamp, it looks like two children.  WOW.  Great coloring idea.
Charlene Mitchell designed this pretty card with an adorable image.  Artist Lynne Stansbery created this image  and it is called First Kiss.  I just love her use of hearts, both the pearl heart add-ons as well as the beautiful paper she used.
Lisa Minkler crafted this amazing creation.  WOW!  That's too awesome.  I love the dimensional creation and the die cuts with the adorable image.  That adorable little girl is called "Strut your Stuff" from artist Lynne Stansbery.  The image also comes with 2 fun sayings.  Beautiful Work Lisa!

Tammy Hair created this heart warming card with an adorable new image from artist Fawn Palmer.  The image is called Happy Beaver and it comes with the saying shown on her card plus two additional sayings.  I sure would be yours!

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  used a great image from artist Fawn Palmer called Happy Beaver.  This adorable beaver makes a perfect little valentine!  Shown is one of the sayings that comes with him "Wood you be mine?" but he also comes with the sayings "Dam I missed your birthday" and "Justin Beaver wants to be your baby, baby."
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!
