Squigglefly - Thank You

The Squigglefly challenge for today is to make a thank you card.  I needed one for a neighbor who brought us wood for the stove in our barn.  We were lucky he cut down a few trees and we are now well stocked on wood.   I decided to make a sunburst card and I used the Squigglefly image "Happy Beaver" by Fawn Palmer.  This was the perfect image for my card.  Come on over to our blog and join us for the challenge and see what my "teamie's"have created.

We also have a new artist, Enid Barnes, at Squigglefly.  Her images are realistic and are done in an artistic technique called pointillism.   I used her Ostrich and Boxer image on the cards below.  She has some other really cute images that are now debuting in the Squigglefly store.

A big portion of the U.S. is suppose to have snow and  frigid weather this week.  If you are like me and in the deep freeze, be careful and stay warm.   Thanks, for coming by today.


  1. Boy, are you on the ball with these challenges, Shirley!!

    This "Thanks for the wood" card is perfect with the sunburst of papers around this adorable beaver image - you could not have picked a more fitting image. Love how you gave your card some texture with the embossed brown scalloped strip!

    This "old bird" card is sure to get a chuckle out of whoever receives it - your colorful BG paper with the rick rick and button down the side gives it extra character! Love the look on that old bird's face!

    This lovable looking boxer image just warmed my heart - he is the picture of "Love", and the subtle blue and brown just bring out his eyes - great card to say I am thinking of you!

    Great cards from the frozen Midwest - ya gotta do smething to stay warm, and you are really heating things up here!

  3. Such fantastic cards Shirley! I love the beaver image for thanking someone for wood - how perfect! You picked some great papers for the sunburst technique!
    I love the sentiment you came up with for the Ostrich! The rick rack down the side is a great element too!
    Now your Boxer card is just so darn cute! I love it! Great coloring on it - and that "LOVE" sentiment fits it perfectly!

  6. Sue and I were just talking about you - hoping you and Kathy were staying warm! We are so cold here and I know you are there too. I LOVE these cards. I am getting that ostrich image this week - I think that card is the funnest card I have I seen in a while. The boxer is so you (cute cute cute) and that thank you for your neighbor is perfect. These are some really well thoughout and wonderful cards my friend. Hugz!
