Hi everyone and happy Monday! I enjoyed my days off work, but the four days off just didn't seem like they lasted any time! I didn't get a lot of crafting time in, but enjoyed the things I did. I hope you all had an enjoyable holiday weekend as well!
Squigglefly knows how busy everyone is right now getting ready for Christmas, so they have decided to have no challenges during the month of December. This will give the current design team a break. So, today is the last Squigglefly challenge of the year!
It's a fun one this week! Rhonda has challenged everyone to make a Christmas card using a squigglefly image and you should have a candy cane embellishment somewhere on your project. The candy cane can me any thing you want; a button, a piece cut out from some designer paper, etc. I do hope you try to play along. If you do, upload your creation to the blog and tag your work SFC30.
I used one of Susan Spillers images that will be part of the December 5th release at Squigglefly. This one is called Gingerbread Cutie.

I colored with copic markers and highlighted with some gesso. I'm not real happy with my highlighting on this one. I used some puffy markers on the icing parts of the gingerbread girl. Here's a close up
I made the scallops from scalloped squares using the corners. I saw a card Mel at Melstampz where she did that and I liked the idea! In the middle scallop I glued little bitty red sequin circles. Freida sent me a package of lots of fun stuff recently and these little sequin circles in all colors were in there!
The designer paper is from Debbie Mumm holiday pack and the little candy cane is from Making Memories. I printed the sentiment out on my computer and popped it up with some pop dots.
Hope you have a wonderful day, and thanks for looking!
