Squigglefly New Releases!

Coffee of the Day - Vanilla Biscotti

Good morning! I hope you are having a wonderful start to your weekend!

I awoke to discover that my vintage thank you card from yesterday won the challenge over at Stamp, Scrap, and Doodle! Boy, was that exciting! The news was met with the usual enthusiam over here..... "oh that's nice, mom.... can I get back to my game now?" grins!

So on to the BIG news!!!! Today is NEW RELEASE DAY at SQUIGGLEFLY!!!!!!!!!! woooo hoooo!!! I am thrilled to show you 2 cards made with some fabby images 'Willow' and 'Load of Cakes'!

For 'Load of Cakes', I used Basic Grey Cupcake papers. Unfortunately the pale blue bg wash on the main image didn't scan well - but it's there irl. the candle flames are painted with shimmerz, and she is sporting some pretty fancy bright pink glitter shoes! I think a girl as fun as this one would wear pink shoes with EVERY outfit she owns, regardless of the 'matching' factor. I know I do! :D the cake sprinkles are covered in fruit punch stickles. I am using this card for the challenge over at Crazy 4 Challenges - birthdays.

For 'Willow', I immediately thought of the song "Lemon Tree" from when I was growing up. I have had that song running through my head for days now.... and I love it! giggles! bet you are singing along with me now, too, aren't ya? the lemons are painted with shimmerz. The quote is from a poem by Christina Rosetti. Papers are from the Basic Grey Lemonade collection. I used my spica glitter pen on the little fence, around the main image matting, to add some dots by the border punch, and to do some outlining along some of the other edges. Finally I added a leaf pin that is actually from the notions dept. at JoAnn's. what a find! I am entering this card in the Saturday Spotlight challenge, which is to represent love without using hearts.


Stop by the other DT members' blogs and the SNR group site to see some more fun samples. then head to the store to see all of the images released today.

Enjoy your weekend! Jennifer
