SFC94 the Squigglefly Workout

Hi my friends. As I was typing up this post very late Friday night, almost finished, I hit the backspace key and the entire post disappeared. Grrrrr.... not happy, but I was just too tired to try again before I got some sleep first, especially since it will be set to post on Monday morning.

It's another new challenge on the Squigglefly blog - SFC94 - the Squigglefly Workout. Nope..not an ACTUAL physical workout silly!

Show us how much you love your Squigglefly digital images by picking YOUR favorite way to use them...

print them out and color with Copics
combine images together
make your own background paper
use paper piecing
or some other creative way that you know how to use digital images...

Squigglefly style that is!!

Although you may use any images on your creation to enter the challenge, in order to qualify for the prize you must use at least one Squigglefly image! You may combine SF images with non-SF images to qualify! If you don't have any Squigglefly images, help yourself from the FREEBIES available.

You have until Sunday evening to upload your new creation to your blog or any on-line photo gallery. Please use SFC94 in your keywords.

Please add a DIRECT link to your project in the InLinkz box on the SF blog, so we can find it -- (new creations only and no back-linking please!). If you have more than one entry, link each one separately.

The winner will be announced at the same time the new challenge post comes up next Monday, so be sure to check back to see if you are a winner!

On my card I used a new image (beautiful butterfly) with an older image from flowers set. I colored the images with copic markers and added some white highlights with a gel pen. I punched one edge of the floral piece with a lace doily Martha Stewart punch and added several more punched layers beneath it.

I cut out the butterfly and glued it down, with some dimensional tape underneath the wings for a little dimension. Since I'm not so good at detail cutting around the antennae, I almost always just trim them off. I just used a black marker to redraw them on this card.

The sentiment is from Stampendous, stamped in black ink. The 'brads' are faux - just 1/8" circles punched from black cardstock.

Be sure to stop over at the Squigglefly blog and check out what the rest of the design team has done with today's challenge. And then hop on over to to check out the newest images.

Thank you so much for stopping in today. Have a blessed week.
