A Zombi

Welcome to this week's Squigglefly Challenge hosted by Holley's Hobbyists! The challenge is Paper Piecing or Paper Piercing but if you are super creative do both! For my card I used A Zombi by Squigglefly artist, Fawn Palmer, plus it comes with fun sentiments to pick from. The inside of my card says, "They just keep coming and coming!" There is more to the sentiment but I liked it as is. So its time for you to join the fun! Remember to use a Squigglefly image to win but if you don't have one, try one of their freebies!

KO Kevin

Oh for goodness sake! Will Dr. Digi's House of Stamps' famous champ, KO Kevin, ever learn? The night before the welterweight championship match, Kevin's lovely wife, hoping for a compliment, ask him, "do these jeans make my butt look big?" Being an honest Joe, he answered "yes dear" and so she socked him right in the kisser! Next time Kevin, for goodness sake, say, "no dear, not at all dear, they look wonderful" and you will be able to see your opponent's fist coming right at you!

Myrtle And Her Turtle

I love all of the Wrinklies from Just Inklined but I think Myrtle and her Turtle tops the list of silly senior citizens with their pets! I can't help but wonder what Myrtle and her Turtle are waiting for?

Berrylicious and Vellum

Today's card is pretty simple to create using Pop Tones 65# Berrylicious cardstock and Heavy Duty Clear Vellum from The PaperTemptress! I first stamped the image onto the cardstock and then I stamped two pieces of vellum and adhered them all together. The sentiment and corners were added to complete the card. Easy as 1-2-3!

Polly Dent

Dr. Digi's House of Stamps' antique rocker, Polly Dent, is headed out of town and doesn't plan on returning! Such a sad sight to see her decrepit boyfriend of many moons, Duncan Disorderly, pushing his walker as fast as he can while begging Polly to come back and give him another chance! But it looks like Duncan's goose is cooked since Polly caught him flirting with Night Nurse Nina!

Basket Bear

Thank you for joining us for the Squigglefly 'Shy Bears' Blog Hop. This hop is dedicated to Melissa Chettle and her son Justin. Melissa was a friend of Squigglefly Design Team member Charlene. Sadly, Melissa died very unexpectedly at the end of June, at 43 years young!

At the end of April, Melissa asked Charlene to make her a bunch of Shy Bears cards - any image, any theme, any colours . . . just Shy Bears because she loved them all! If you are not familiar with
 Shy Bears, they are created by Lynne Stansbery, a fabulous artist at Squigglefly and my card today features Basket Bear. There is a whole section in the store with so many fun images for all occasions!

Melissa didn't get the chance to see the cards that Charlene made but we wanted to support Charlene in her request to dedicate this hop to Melissa. Melissa, here's to you . . . R.I.P. 

Charlene has listed more info about Melissa on her personal post. Please visit all the blogs and be sure to leave a comment. One lucky winner will receive 3 free images of their choice. Listed below is the hop order in case you'd like to follow along. 

Roly and Roly

Have you ever heard the rumor that a dog and its master will look alike? I think the fun Roly and Roly, one of the many new Wrinklies recently released by Just Inklined, rather proves the point! Oh happy day, what a thrill to know that I look like a beautiful golden retriever!

Today's card features a portion of the beautiful Geum from Janey's Digi Designs! In hindsight, I should have used the entire flower and left the black vine die cut for another card!

Tuscan Sun and Lime Bricks

Today's card features more goodness from The PaperTemptress! The background and sentiment is RC Tuscan Sun cardstock with Lime Brickwall overlay. The vines were cut from Gumdrop Green 65# Pop Tones cardstock. Quick and easy to make but amazing results!

I.T. Ian

The forlorn I.T. Ian from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps won the Blitz Kaboom Computer Championship last year! As the defending champion Ian spending hours playing the game to sharpen his skills in the hopes of bringing home the crown once again! The night before the game, Ian decided to do a little dusting and cleaning of his computer to make sure it would be working at full capacity and speed. Sadly, Ian had no idea how to put the computer back together and he missed the challenge!

Get Ready to Celebrate

Tomorrow American's honor this great country's birthday and with that in mind, I set about creating a card to remind us that each day we should appreciate our independence and celebrate! I used stamps from this month's Simon Says Stamp July 2013 "Summer Fun" card kit and the sentiment is from the dollar bin at the craft store.
