Squigglefly Challenge #22, SFC2213 Summer is Here!

Welcome to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!

Hello everyone! Are you ready for this week's challenge? Well,first let me tell you last week's winner.  We had a fun contest last week to use rounded corners on different places on your card.  The winner was JoAnn Sinclair who used an adorable image called Tennis Ball Anyone from artist Lynne Stansbery.

Please contact Holly at for your prize.
This week's challenge is SFC2213 Summer is Here!

 Now that June has started, Summer is here, so our first challenge for summertime is called Summer is here! Pick what you love about summer and show it to us. We'd love to see you use a Squigglefly image, if you want to win the prize, it's required, but to play along, it's not necessary.
Let's start with some inspiration from the Holley Hobbyists:

Pat Martin crafted this beautiful card using a great image from artist Pammie Lehto.  This image is called Fancy Cup with Rose.   I am seeing the roses in full bloom everywhere right now.  So Gorgeous.

 Jan Marshall  created this adorable card with colorful bath bubbles!   This image comes from artist Cheryl Alger and is called Ahoy Matey.  I just love the rubber ducky on this pirate hat.  How adorable.

Elizabeth Hart designed a lovely scenic card using an image from artist Cheryl Alger called Noahs Tire Swing. I just love the way she sewed the sentiment on it.  You Make me Smile.  This card makes me smile, beautiful work Elizabeth!!

Charlene Mitchell used an stunning image called Venus Has Arrived. The  image is created by artist Fawn Palmer.  The cute saying "You still look like the Goddess Venus." is just perfect and if you want to be funny and sassy, you can then add the other sentiment inside your card, it says, "Weren't You Born the Same Year?"  HA!!  I just love that.  The image and both sentiments are just $3!
Darlene Pavlick created a gorgeously colored card using Buried Treasure.  This wonderful image is from Lynne Stansbery.  Don't you love those Flip Flops? Just perfect for summer time.  This great image also comes with a saying "Lucky is the person who has shells in their pockets and sand in their shoes."

Tammy Hair created a super cute card using a brand new image from artist Fawn Palmer called A Lap Dog.  I just love her coloring on this card.  Everyone's summer includes their beloved lap dogs.  Stunning work Tammy.

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  used a great image from artist Cheryl Alger.  This adorable image is called Noahs Big Flower.  He's looking bright and sunny, sure is ready for summertime.
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!
