Squigglefly Challenge

Happy Monday! Here's the card I made for the Squigglefly Challenge this week. The theme this week is to make a mother's day theme card. I have this adorable image from artist Cheryl Alger called "Allie Kisses a Bluebird", so I created a card with this cute little girl kissing the birds.

Then on the inside of my card I added this adorable image from artist Fawn Palmer called Baby Bird Bathtime because I can just imagine that sweet little girl taking those little birds (and babies, and just about anything else she finds) and placing them into the bird bath! Can you just see the mom's face when she goes outside and finds her daughter kissing the birds and then looks over to the bird bath?
Drop by the Squigglefly Challenge blog and post a Mother's Day card to participate in this week's challenge. You can even use a free stamp from Squigglefly to play. If you haven't ever tried a Digistamp you just download it onto your computer, print it out onto cardstock, and color it up! I personally let my printed images dry for many hours before coloring with Copic markers. Great thing about Digi-stamps is that you can make them any size you want, 2 in, 3 in, 4in, 5 in!

Project Materials: Cardstock (Bazzill, DCWV, Metallic, Neenah); Images (Squigglefly); Diecuts (Spellbinders nestabilities); Color (Copic Markers); Punch (Creative Memories Circular Punch set); Borders (Martha Stewart); Adhesives (Pop dots, Glue All, Glue Dots), Sentiment (Custom printed); Butterfly (Floradoodles);

  4. Holley,
    Your cards are so very adorable and colored wonderfully. Your comment about the Mom seeing one kissing a bird and the other in a bird bath made me laugh out loud.
