Happy Birthday! (Blog Candy!!)

Sending out special birthday wishes today! Hope you have a great day. Here's a wonderful card I made using a fun image from Squigglefly called Brr-thday Chef. The challenge this week was to use yellow somewhere on the card, so I added some illumination above the candles of the bday cake and some fiber above the stunning lace that I got from Turkiye. Hope this card makes the Birthday person smile. As for the rest of you, hop on over to the Squigglefly Challenge and make a fun card using a little yellow in it to play this week's game and win a prize from Squigglefly. As for my own Blog candy, Today's prize comes from Squigglefly. So, when you leave your comment today, Go over to the Squigglefly website and tell me which of the artists is your favorite...I have too many to pick from, but I must say I am a huge fan of Chesney Young, Cheryl Alger and a newer artist there Lulu Lancaster! Oh, her images are adorable! (If you click the SHOP button from the main page, it will give you a list of categories on the left hand side, below categories is also a list of artists.)

Winner today will get to pick out three images of their own choosing! Either stamps or stamp sets from the Squigglefly website.

Project Materials: Cardstock (Bazzill, AC Metallic, Neenah); Flowers (Michaels); DigiStamp (Squigglefly); Lace (Istanbul, Turkiye); Fiber(JoAnns); Happy Bday (Unknown); Saying (Unknown); Ink (Colorbox Chalk); Die Cut (Lifestyles-formerly Quickkutz); Butterfly (unknown); Adhesives (Pop dots, Glue All, Ribbon Glue, Glue Dots); Brad (Prima);Flower (Recollections); Color (Copic Markers);

Another great card Holley and I love the sentiment that you've put with it. Re the Squigglefly website, I've spent a fab time looking through all the gorgeous images and yet again, I found it difficult to narrow it dow. I did like Cheryl and Inger the same as you, along with Lynne Stansbery and Michelle Bertuzzi.
Have a great day.
Hugs,
Trish x
