Squigglefly Yipes! Stripes Challenge

I made this Halloween card for today’s Stripes Challenge at Squigglefly’s blog.  What do you think?  Enough stripes? ‘ I used striped paper from a bundle I bought at Costco a  long time ago. I think it might be DCWV though.  I alternated the panels to make more stripes and paper pieced the little witch’s hat and coat with the same dp.  Look close! Even the little pumpkin is striped!  Marlene’s image is adorable isn’t it? She has a whole series of these… and nerdy boys too!  Check out the Squigglefly blog for more Stripes inspired creations! Marlene’s cute as can be ‘Nerdy  Girl Witch’ is available at Squigglefly. I’m entering my card in these challenges: Unscripted Sketches #127- sketch Squigglefly– Stripes Sentimental Sundays– Anything goes plus a sentiment Sparkles Forum – Halloween I hope you all had a great weekend!  Today is Canadian Thanksgiving, but we had our dinner celebration with my Sister in Law and her husband at our house on Sunday.  Today I think we’ll just relax and enjoy the day with …

A Sketchy Squigglefly Challenge

This week at Squigglefly Marlene (our super fearless and funny leader) has given us a fabulous sketch to follow!   I had a ton of fun working on this sketch  with my friend Peggy over for the better part of Friday!  We not only had time to make cards, but also to go out to lunch and head over to my local scrapbook store!  A fabulous day!  Thanks to Des (hubby extraordinaire) for picking up the boys from school giving us plenty of time to play!!  Could a girl have it any better?!  I think not. Head on over to Squigglefly to play the SKETCH CHALLENGE and don’t forget to use any of your favourite Squigglefly images for a chance to win!!  For my card I used a Lulu Lancaster image called Gothic Bouquet and colored her up with Copics.  I think she is so sweet with those sad puppy dog eyes. I thought it would make a good “get well” card for a friend who’s been really sick for a couple of weeks now.   I …

Let’s Sail With Squigglefly!

Hey everyone! Glad to see you pulled yourselves out of bed this rather gloomy Monday morning!  Or is it just gloomy for me…? Maybe so, since my husband had to go back to work today after our week’s stay home vacation…! AND it’s cool and rainy outside too, which doesn’t help since I’m feeling that summer is coming to an all too sooooooon end!!  PLEASE don’t let it be so, I pray for  a few more good hot weeks!!  This is also my boys’ last week before school starts and for you Moms out there; I know that comes with mixed feelings for most, elated cries of joy for some, and even a few tears for others.  I can happily say that this summer was so busy and fun and sunny hot, that I really enjoyed every minute of it with my boys!  I can’t believe how quickly their time home from school has gone.  I’m sure that they feel the same. Anyhoo…today’s card is very fitting since the SQUIGGLEFLY CHALLENGE is WATERWORKS! I’ve used …

Squigglefly Button Blowout

Time for a Squigglefly challenge!  Buttons are wonderful embellishments for our cards.  They are easily found, inexpensive, and can be made from all types of materials too.  So get out your buttons, or make your own with chipboard or polymer clay, shrink plastic or whatever else you can dream up! Don’t forget to link up your creations over at Squigglefly’s BLOG for a chance to win a Squigglefly image! I’ve used this adorable image from Cheryl Alger called “Birthday Cake Desire”.   The image is colored with copics in shades of brown, pink and peach.  The button is a very old large brown button from my stash. The dp has a great metallic sheen to the stripes that I wish photographed better; S.E.I Claire patterned paper.

Squigglefly Kraftastic Challenge

Squigglefly has a new artist, new releases and a new challenge this week! Lulu Lancaster (LulusApple)  is the edgy new artist bringing Squigglefly some ‘creepy cute’ images for your moodier days of crafting.  You know you have it in you…those moods have a way of creeping up on even the most innocent of us! The challenge this week, set by our fearless leader Marlene (Marlooney) is…KRAFTASTIC! I made a mini art journal that I’m sure I’ll fill with sketches and card designs.  This spirited “gothic angel” is reaching for the stars and just trying to stay true to herself!  The cover is made from Kraft cardstock; I stamped the stars and flourishes, and added a little doodling of my own.  She has icicle stickles on her wings for sparkle, and crimson pearls ” just because”! HOW   TO: 1. Cut two kraft pieces  and  10 pieces of cream or white light weight paper. I’ve cut mine to 3 1/8″ x 4″ but you can make your journal any size.  Round the corners of  one side on …
