Squigglefly Challenge

Happy Monday everyone!  It's the last Monday of the celebration month and it's time for the Squigglefly challenge of the week. This week it's my team, the Holley Hobbyists who are heading up the challenge, it's called "I give thee a recipe."  The recipe this week is to include Twill, printed paper (at least a piece) and at least one button/brad/eyelet.  As you can see on my card, I chose to use printed paper as my background, I am using black and white twill on the red cardstock and I added three buttons.  This fun image is Shih Tsu from artist Enid Barnes.  I am also using a sentiment from the Squigglefly stamp set Just Flyin By.

Drop by the Squigglefly Challenge blog and join in the fun if you want to play along with us. You can even get a FREE image from Squigglefly HERE.

Which artist at Squigglefly (click here) is your favorite?  For me, I think there are Hilarious one from Mike Eustis (i.e. Roboboots and StudMuffin), Cheryl Alger makes the most darling girls, and Fawn Palmer as I love her sexy fun images and most especially the adorable sayings that she always adds to them!!

Be sure and check the current winner's list (CLICK HERE) and see if your name is on it...if you name is in Black Bold print, then I haven't gotten your address or email, so please drop me a line at htondre@aol.com.  If you are new to the blog, we are having a wonderful celebration this month, blog candy everyday, be sure and go sign up, esp on Feb 1st as the grand prizes will get picked from that location (click here) then you can go back through previous days (last week) and leave a comment on each day for your chance to win.

You know I lover Squigglefly images, Holley, and it's hard to choose just one. I like the detail of Lynne's images, the cuteness factor of Chaeryl's, the range of Pamela's...need I go on? LOL

Cute dog card xx

Linda W. said...

Ah I didn't know your parents had a shih tzu - our Nikko is a Zuchon which is a designer breed cross of a shih tzu and a bichon but the vet says the shih tzu stands out the most. I love that picture Holley - the card is awesome!

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

I love the pen and ink look to this image. So I would have to pick Enid Barnes. Followed by Diana Garrison. I love that you used the black and white background. It is beautiful with the image.

Kathy said...

Darling card. I like Cheyl Alger. I have to check out this artist, though, because I love the image.

Karenladd said...

Awww, this card is adorable! I like Marla Shega's images because of the shading and mix of realistic and whimsical images. Her Westie image is the cutest! (yes, I love dogs)

Love the card. I recently lost my Chihuahua in December. I am now considering getting a puppy who is Chi/Shih Tzu mix. I have been waiting for a sign that is the right thing.....maybe this is it.

Anyway, love the black/white/red mix.

Hugs,
Linda

Pam lehto's cupcake is soooooo cute. But all the artists are talented. Audrey r in austin

Shelley said...

Everything you make comes out perfect! Looking at all the images took a long time, I skimmed through most. I liked both Dianna Garrison & Lynne Stansbery (especially the witch). I have to say that most of the images I saw, maybe 80%, were too cute for me. I seldom comment due to arthritis in fingers, but I do read your posts & the comments. I enjoy others opinions and the things they notice too. :)
