At Your Service

okay, so we had a few glitches in the start of the blog hop yesterday, but that's one reason we have it lasting until April 5th! It gives us time to work out the kinks and more time for you to enter! Plus, there's more days of great eye candy from all the design team!
If you are participating in the Squigglefly Blog Hop, you'll want to go to the beginning by visiting Anita's blog. Everyone in the hop has some great prizes up for grabs. I'm giving away a set of 12 assorted colors of flock, a new Inksentials white gel pen, and a small tin of assorted embellishments.

For your chance to win you will need to leave a comment here and post about the blog hop on your blog. If you don't have a blog, just tell a few friends about the hop! The blog hop will last until Sunday April 5th. Don't leave yet though because I tell you where to hop to next after I show you what I made!

Today I have a card that uses another brand spanking new image from Squigglefly that I just love!

I printed the image twice; once on designer paper and I cut the shower curtain and the rug out of the paper and pieced it over the image. I used the same designer paper on the background. I used some stitches rub ons at the top of the designer paper and it kind of looks like shower curtain rings, don't cha think? LOL!

I colored the image with copic markers and chalked the background. The words are computer generated. Inside the card says "just one of my many services. signed, your cat" LOL! I know my cat seems to strut around here like I should be grateful he's gracing me with his presence sometimes, so I can picture him writing something like this to me if he could!

Did any of you get to Squigglefly's site yesterday and see the new images? How funny is that cat lady? Also, did you see that now you can put a face to artists and (most) of the design team?
So now when you hear me talking about my kids you'll know what they look like! LOL!
Thanks for taking the time to visit, and now it's time for you to hop over and see what Karin has to show you today!

I could not picture a card in my head with that image and know I can! This is fabulous! I love the cat lady image! Oh, did I tell you your girls are goregous????

I think the hop is a huge success and I'm having the time of my life!

HOW CUTE!And another one to add to my must haves! Reminds me too much of our own fur baby! You must have gotten up extra early to think of printing it twice on DP to paper piece! Before I read it, I was amazed at how the rug and shower curtain matched the background. DUH!!!VERY CLEVER! And to think of using "stitches" for the rings is so smart! The sentiment is PURRRFECT! You just have it all together gal! I TOTALLY LOVE THIS ONE! ;)

Ms Catlady is another one on my list! That expression! Oh I just love her!

I'm so excited that I get to hop again today! You gals have worked so hard and it definitely shows. Let me get my notebook ready! :)
