New Release and Lucky Update!

Hi everyone! Sorry I didn't get around to posting yesterday. It has been a really busy weekend since I got home from work on Friday afternoon, and I've had little time to craft!

I did get a card made with one of Squigglefly's newly released images to share with you though! Have you been by to see the new images? Some really great faces to use for a variety of cards, and there's a really cool Peacock Tile that Teresa Ward drew. I know the design team will be making some awesome things with that!

I chose to use the Mother In Law image.

(click to enlarge)

She is colored with Copic markers and the background is chalked. I used a brand new die for framing the circle and sponged it with some Bliss Blue ink. The sentiment is computer generated and then cut out with a label die from Spellbinders. I then threaded a ribbon through it and around the designer paper to tie in a knotted bow in front. The inside says "Maybe they should live next door and just visit now and then." LOL!

Oh, and did you see that thanks to all of you who bought cat images in February, Squigglefly was able to contribute $150.00 toward Lucky's surgery fund? The vet taking care of Lucky has said that Lucky received her surgery, and he has even posted a little video of her that you can see HERE.

Enjoy your Sunday! thanks for looking!

Love the way you colored her up, and of course, the sentiment is hilarious. You can almost hear her saying that. Awesome stuff, Holly!
