As we prepare for another accumulation of snow, one can only wish for a day at the beach enjoying sunny skies and warm breezes. The image is Beach Baby Jayme that I got from Whimsey Stamps shortly before they closed the digi section of their store.

My friend Vicki of Stamp Smiles has started a Flashback Friday Challenge and the current challenge is Got Flowers. The only hitch is that the stamps, papers and/or embellishments that are used are at least one year or older! After all the years of stamping that I've done, how could I resist playing along? The hard part was dealing with the dust that they had collected!

I’ve been with Squigglefly since November of 2010 when I was invited to join the team. It has been a fabulous experience and I’ve made so many friends that I will always treasure but sadly, Squigglefly will be closing its doors on February 1, so if there are images you’ve been wanting or you have reward points don’t wait!
My card today features I Miss You by Squigglefly's amazing artist, Lynne Stansbery and I am so please that I was lucky enough to have it published in Complete Cardmaking, Issue 53! So thank you Holly and Ashley for having me, its been wonderful and to my teammates, thanks for sharing all of your wonderful cards!

The current Lawnscaping Challenge is to create a background with stamps. To play along I used Chevron Backdrops for the background and then I used stamps from Whale You Be Mine to create my ocean scene. As finishing touches, I used the hearts from the Stitched Journaling Card Lawn Cuts and Coral Single Cord Lawn Trimmings.

Welcome to Scrapy Land Challenge #10. The challenge theme is to use Spots and/or Dots plus use any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells. To create my tag, I used the Spotted Cutting Plate by Taylored Expressions to cut several different colors of cardstock and then randomly reset the cut pieces of cardstock back into the grid. Be sure to visit Scrapy Land Challenge for all the challenge details and to see what the other members of the design team have created and play along with us.
Look at all Scrapy Land sells!

Welcome to a new Squigglefly Challenge hosted this week by Carolyn's Crafters and the challenge is Snow Much Fun!

For my card I used Hipster Winter by Squigglefly artist, Sal Scheibe. So after you are done shoveling the snow outside, enjoy the warmth inside and join the snow challenge but be sure to us a Squigglefly image to be eligible to win!

If you must suffer in the cold you might just as well enjoy it with friends! My card today features Lawn Fawn stamps from Critters in the Arctic, Birthday Tags, Home Sweet Home and also the small die from Tag, You're It Lawn Cuts. My plan is to enter my card in the Landscaping Challenge #97 Winter Themed Mood Board.

Stamps from The Alley Way Stamps make me giggle especially Chick Magnet that I used to create today's card along with the sentiment from Birds of a Feather! Can you imagine a flock of chickens doing a line dance while out on the town? Me neither but it does make me laugh thinking about it!
