Squigglefly challenge #16-SFC1613-April showers bring May flowers...

HELLO! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekends! Mine was a busy one...but seems like there is always a big list to do on the weekends. I hope you all enjoyed our challenge last week--Mothers Day cards.
Are you ready to see who was the winner of that challenge?   Jo Ann Sinclair . Jo Anne used Story Time  by Lynne Stansbery .
Thanks for playing along--Congrats!! Please email Holly at for your prize.
Now for this weeks challenge brought to you by Holley's Hobbyists. Here is what Holley said about the challenge: I will give you one of two choices--show me your showers--anything in blue (or water theme), i.e. a  blue colored card or card using water theme or rain;  OR go with May Flowers- a card that has any flowers on it--in the image, in the embellishments, on the card stock, in the saying? surprise me!
So, here is some inspiration to get you going:

Holley has used  MAILBOX  by Diana Garrison. I love how she put the image on the side!

Tammy used POLLY'S SWIM IN THE BATH by Cheryl Alger. What a great way to embellish this card, by adding the flags.

Charlene used A WEE BIT O RAIN by Mike Eustis and the sentiment: NEVER DANCED IN THE RAIN
What a perfect combo for this card!

Pat Martin
Pat used HAVE YOU HEARD by Cheryl Alger. I love how the image and the papers work perfectly together!

Jan used  WHO BURST YOUR BALLOON by Cheryl Alger. I love how she added the little tag!

Elizabeth used AVERY'S MAY FLOWER by Cheryl Alger. I love the design of this card!

Darlene Pavlick
   Darlene used WHAT A CATCH by Diane Carubia. What a super fun image, colored up just perfectly!
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 SFC1613 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!
