Hi everyone! I hope you had a really great weekend. I enjoyed my weekend even if I didn't do as much card making as I had hoped to do. I got a lot of little things done that needed doing.
Last weekend I filmed her playing with this giant tennis ball - well I THOUGHT I was filming it! When I came inside to upload it I discovered that I was pushing PAUSE when I thought I was pushing RECORD! So, yesterday I asked Brock to come kick the ball around and let me try to film it again.
We have a large lot that belongs to a church on the side of our house, and it is the perfect play area for her. Anyway, if you are not interested in seeing Riley play with her ball, feel free to scroll past the video and see today's card
One thing I did do was play in the featured stamper challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. To see the card I chose to CASE, just click HERE.
You can probably guess which Squigglefly image I chose to use. Of course, it's the beautiful Zen Dragonfly drawn by Angie Davis. I just love this image and still have plans to use it in another way, so I hope you like it too!

I printed the image out making sure to center it with enough space around it for the piercing I had planned. I used a large oval nestabilities die and cut an oval opening out of some copy paper. Then I laid the opening over the image and chalked around the perimeter of the opening.
The image was colored with copic markers and then I added some brown puff paint to the cattail and a bit of crystal stickles to the dragonfly trail. The piercing was done and a sheer blue ribbon tied around the bottom.
The birthday greeting is from Stampin Up and was stamped in Bliss Blue ink. After I cut it out with a smaller oval nestabilities I chalked the edge of it and stuck it at the top. Even with all of the piercing, it was a rather quick card to do.
This card also qualifies for the Lexis Creations challenge which is Anything Goes,the Res Q Challenge which is to make a hybrid card, and last but not least the Saturday Spotlight challenge to make a clean and simple card!
I have a whole list of more challenges I'd like to take part in this week, and one of them is the new one that Maria has set on the Squigglefly blog. I hope you will go and take part in that challenge too. As you know, I offer a prize every week in the challenge, and this week's winner will receive this package of assorted Easter glitter
Well, have a great day and thanks for looking!
