Happy Friday everyone! I have had such fun seeing all the wonderful things being made by the design team with Squigglefly's newest images! I hope you have too. You still have time to find the hidden blinkie on Squigglefly's site, because the winners won't be picked until sometime tomorrow. The blinkie you're searching for looks like this

Once you find it, just come to my blog and leave a comment telling me where it is. I'm moderating all the comments so the answer isn't revealed. All the PEOPLE finding the blinkie and leaving a comment telling me where it is will be entered into a drawing where FIVE winners will get to pick two images of their choice. It'll be hard to choose though because there are so many wonderful ones!

edited to add - lots of PEOPLE are leaving me comments saying they're finding the blinkie on some of the design team blogs. Those are not the blinkies you're searching for. The blinkie you want to find is hidden on the Squigglefly store site.

One such image by Cheryl Alger who is an artist new to Squigglefly this month is the one I've used on today's card. This image is called Santa's Oops Helper

I think this is just the cutest image! I love the look on this guy's face! It was really a fun card to color. I colored it with copic markers, and then I ran a glue pen over the ornaments and sprinkled on some glitter. I put a little bit of puff paint on the brim of the elf's hat and chalked a bit in the background. The tops of the ornaments were colored in with a gold glitter gel pen.

Usually when I'm coloring an image I try to think of sentiments to use on cards with it. When I was doing this card one thing kept going through my mind over and over, and I think most of you know my sense of humor can be twisted sometimes so here's the inside of the card

I have so many people on my Christmas card list who need a card like this! I hope you find yourself chuckling over this too!

The copic colors I used on this are these

One more thing I wanted to mention to you. Someone named Sarah wrote me yesterday and asked if I would mention her jewelry site to you all. I went to take a look and thought that with Christmas coming up you may like to take a look, so if that interests you please go have a peek at LuShae Jewelry.

Okay, go hunt for that button if you haven't found it yet, and thanks for stopping by today!
