Bearly Spring

The theme is Sunny Days, to play along add a sun shape on your card such as a die cut, pattern paper, button, brad, eyelet or as part of your image and be sure to use a Squigglefly image to be eligible to win!  For my card I used Bearly Spring by one of Squigglefly's new artists, Sandra Caldwell!

Squigglefly's family of artists is always growing! On July 5th, three new artists, Tam Hess, Norma Burnell, and Angela Charles, will join the fold and their images will be included in the new release. Also, as of today, Holley's Hobbyists has a new team member, please join me in welcoming Jen Leeflang and at the same time a sad farewell to Charlene Mitchell!

Dr. Digi's House of Stamps is world renowned for his funny and outlandish citizens, but the good doctor also has images suitable for the wee folks such as Nessie! One word of warning however, don't let Nessie's sweet demure look fool you, underneath that shy smile is a man eater and for goodness sake, don't tell the kids!

Beach Babe

When I spotted the Art Impressions stamp set that contained this stamp at Michael's, I stood in the aisle and laughed out loud AND then whipped out my 40% off coupon and headed to the register!  What a score! I'm entering this stunning beach babe in the AI Inspiration Sequin Challenge, I think she's a hoot and she just makes me giggle!

Wired for Sound

So look who is headed out for a little exercise on her skates!  None other than Wired for Sound from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps, all decked out in an outlandish neon outfit, (nobody's going to miss seeing her), while be-booping to her favorite music, and sporting a sentiment from Funny Sentiments Sheet 02! If you ask me, I think she needs a really big pillow tied on her backside, not to protect her bum, but to protect the sidewalk when she hits it!

Totally Inspired

In case you are wondering, I was totally inspired by the gorgeous card that Julie Ebersole posted for The Classroom, why change perfection! The only difference in our cards is I used Heavenly White cardstock as the base with similar colors of Pop Tones 65# cardstock from the, a different die and sentiment!
