Squigglefly - blues and greens!

Well, I think this fits the challenge this time around.
I LOVE these flowers and also this sentiment. I'm sending this to a girlfriend who is recovering from some surgery and having to behave (aren't you, girlfriend?!) so I thought it would cheer her up! She's an avid gardener! I don't know if she has any blue flowers or not, but I thought I'd send her this one.
Please go check out all the other DT members this time and see what they've come up with, and then remember to go and get on board with the One A Day in May! You don't want to miss that!

Late, late late for my SSDS

I'm so sorry I'm so very late. You'd think I would have had this loaded up already. It was done on time, I promise. But, my new computer was having fits, and then my printer wasn't working either. It's been a rough weekend. But, I do have my "girly" card finished and finally loaded up.

This image is one of my very favorites of a female! I mean, who could possibly deny this is a "girly" girl! I'm afraid my coloring this time around does not do it justice. Another one of the things not quite working right this weekend.

But, I'm hopeful that things will perk up soon. I'm getting ready for a visit from my Mom and stepdad in late May, and I'm working feverishly to get their room ready. See, it's also my craft room, and it's gotten very overrun since their last visit. In fact, if they arrived today, there would be no place to sleep, as the bed was entirely covered. But I've put some new bookcases in the room, and removed a dresser and mirror, so things are improving little by little. I probably need one more bookcase to free up the last of it all. That also means that I'm getting a little more organized too, which is a good thing!!

Anyway, go check out all the other DT members who DID get their projects done on time! And see what nice prize is up for grabs this time around. We are so thankful that so many of you are joining in our challenges!

Hello Squigglefly fans!

How about a quick rewind?! Here are a few new cards made with some older Squigglefly images. These are definitely some oldies but goodies, and although I did quick cards, if you take a little more time with them, they can be fantastic!
We just wanted to take today to remind you not to forget about some older choices before all the new images come in! Check out the other DT members and see who all joined in the rewind, then head to the shop and see what older images you can find to incorporate into your stash!!

SSDS Challenge Day

Well, today's challenge calls for Buttons, Bows and Bling! I made this card for a girlfriend who is having her Relay for Life today.
I know she'll get lots of cards with the Breast Cancer ribbon on it, so I decided to use something a little different. Naturally. That's just how my mind works I guess!
I'm now a survivor too, so I'm going to join in for a little bit of the celebration part.
I have to make another card today to take to another friend who is dying of cancer. He called this week, and just needed to chat a bit I think, so we decided to make the trip to visit. The weather is supposed to cooperate with us and be nice.
We have so much to do around here, things we put off most of this winter, and then with the past few weeks I just couldn't get it done, but time is running out. We have to have a garage sale and get rid of some stuff (all kinds of stuff) before we have visitors in late May. My guest room/craft room is undergoing a big change to make accommodations - most of the furniture is going and new bookcases and things are coming in to free up clutter and (aghast!) maybe make organization a little better! But this visit this weekend is extremely important too.
Hope you all have a wonderful day today - and that you join in the challenge! It's not difficult, it's just the basics!!

Squigglefly Doodles

Todays challenge at Squigglefly is to "doodle" and I'm not too experienced at this.

I don't think I do that too often in general, and I definitely don't to that too often on my cards!

But when trying to come up with what to do, I loved these new flower images from Squigglefly and so I knew I wanted to include them, and for some reason, trying to put a little dragonfly into the scene seemed right. What do you think? I'd seen the idea of this dragonfly somewhere that starts with circles as the body, and then just adding to it. I felt I could maybe do that!

Come join in our challenge this week!

Hey everyone. Good Saturday to you!
This is my card for the Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturday challenge today. I used some Glitz paper (Audrey), and added a few butterflies I punched out to go with the ones in the paper.
I have a few birthday cards to make for my co-workers, and I thought this made a nice one!
My photo isn't the best, but I'm having issues with my camera and computer not communicating well. They don't seem to like each other. But I struggled through and at least got this to show up.
Come join us in the challenge this week Here .
