Squigglefly's Hearty Challenge!

Hi everyone! Well, the SNOW came just like promised! Here's a picture of it about 30 minutes after it started

and here's what it looks like this morning

We probably got about an inch and half. I wish it had been more, but I'll take what I can get!

Well, today is Squigglefly's new Design Team's first challenge on the blog and I'm playing along! This week it's Vicki's group and she challenged everyone to "Have A Heart" and use a heart on your project.

This is a pretty easy challenge since everyone is thinking Valentine's Day! I chose to use an image that is really a summer time image. Eline Pellinkhof's cute little Fishing Time rabbit turns into a Valentine when he catches a heart!

I colored this with Copic markers and then glued a punched heart where the fish is. I printed the sentiment on my computer, cut it out in a heart shape and sponged around it with some Real Red ink.

Be sure to take a look at what the design team has done by visiting Squigglefly's Blog, and why not play along for a chance to win a free image?

I hope you have a wonderful Monday. I know Riley and I will - we're going to be playing in the snow! Thanks for looking!

Come for a visit in Denver, we have 6" of snow, and 6 degrees this AM. The mountains and foothills are beautifu this AM, clean snow, wonderful clear blue sky.

It's great to live in Colorado!

How cute Holly--glad you got some snow--I told you --I would share though!! We went from it all disappearing to getting tons of it back! I am obviously not quite as enthused about it as you are!!

Enjoy that snow! Tomorrow will be our third round in a week. Not as thrilled here. Love this adorable fishing bunny! Too cute.

Will you believe we got 10"!!!!! I have never seen so much snow in my life! :) Molly had a ball....wouldn't run in it, just hopped! Oh she was so funny!

Your card is precious....what a great image and clever sentiment! Looks like I'll have to get started on my Valentines with the challenge....if our power holds out that is! That's the bad thing about snow down our way...our power lines don't like it too much!

Stay warm....gonna stay below freezing for a few days! Ugh!!!
Hugs~

Love your bunny! Come to Nebraska, we have about 7 inches and it is still snowing. Yuck!

Maria Matter said...

adorable card holly! cute sentiment for this image!
hugs & blessings!

Vicki said...

Holly I am so happy for you that you got snow!!! How pretty it is...I am a snow lover so I am JEALOUS! We have piles of dirty snow all over the place...all the snow on the ground has pretty much melted and we had close to 18 inches here! Oh well, there will be more I am sure! Ohhhh geez I got so excited about the snow, almost forgot to tell you how darling your card is! Perfect sentiment for that image...and a cute image!

HUGS!
Vicki

Adorable bunny card! Love the way you shaded that heart.

Boy, you've got as much snow as we've got!!!

Patricia St Martin said...

I was wondering if you were going to get some of that snow. It will not stay to long. We are going to get some tonight. Love your bunny card.

Pam in Ar. said...

msfreida got 10"?????? No fair...we got about an inch but I didn't go out and play in it...I stayed in and cooked, did that yesterday too. Not going to be very good for my waistline :/

Loved the cute little heart on the end of the line....I can't believe Valentine's Day is just around the corner!! Thanks for sharing, I hope to see a video of Riley playing in the snow :)

Linda said...

We are not getting near the snow everyone is getting and I am happy. Sorry you didn't get as much as you wanted.
I love your adorable card. Another great idea Holly.
