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 my prizes 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. To continue your hop, head over to see Karin!
Maybe you'd like to join the squigglefly group on yahoo where you can see what others are doing with their images, discuss ideas for greetings on your cards, and show off your artwork!
Okay, those of you who follow my blog regularly probably guessed from the title of this post that I'm going to show my card with The Big Cheese image. The other day I told you that I had tried out different sayings on my husband who promptly groaned at all of them except for "Who cut the cheese?", and that was one that was just too expected for me. I was going to tell you what my favorite saying was, but instead had you guess! No one guessed. So you might be thinking I used "Say Cheese!" since that's what I titled my post, but you'd be wrong!

I just thought the smug, smart alec look on this guy's face looks like he's saying something just like this.
I used a font called Euphorigenic S and if you like it, you can get it for free here.
I colored him with copic markers and added a little chalk to the background. Looking at it now however, I think I should have put my horizon line a little higher up. Oh well!
The paper I used is from Basic Grey's mellow pad. I cut the image out with a nestabilitie blossom die, and then I matted it on some handmade paper and just hand cut around it. The saying is also cut with the same blossom die, and I just chalked it and attached it to the card with pop dots.
So are any of you doing anything fun this weekend? I think we are going to see the movie Alien vs. Monsters in 3D at the Imax. The last 3D movie we went to see was Coraline and we loved it. They showed previews to the Alien vs. Monsters one then and it looked like another good one, so I'm looking forward to that.
Our weather is supposed to be pretty so I will probably get out with Riley and have a look at my flower beds. I noticed this morning that a lot of my iris have buds starting to open. I love Iris; they are my favorite flower.
I hope you have a great day today, and thanks as always for taking the time to come visit my blog!
