Squigglefly Blog Hop

Welcome to the Squigglefly blog hop! If you just came across my post, please start over at Squigglefly and I'll be here when you return.

Today all of the DT members are showcasing images from Squigglefly's brand new illustrator Crissy Armstrong ~ aren't her images amazing!?! If you've seen High Hopes Stamps, her work may look familiar to you, as she was an illustrator for them. With so many wonderful images it was hard to narrow down which to use, so I ended up doing two cards.

First up is Roger and Jo ~ aren't they the most adorable little kitties ever!?!


I kept this card pretty simple as I wanted the image to stand out, and love how the charm looks in place of a sentiment stamp.

Next we have "Turkey" ~ I think he is so cute sitting there in his wagon amidst all those apples!
I had a lot of fun making this card. For the flower I tried something different. The button on top has a metal circle loop on the back back (did I mention it is really little?) and I threaded the ribbon through the loop three times to make it look like a bow (and let me tell you the third time through was difficult ~ it's a good thing I started with a really long piece of ribbon because the ends were shredded by the time I was done).

So do you love these images as much as I do? If your answer is YES, be sure to stop by and comment on all the DT members blogs, because one lucky winner will receive all 13 of Crissy's new images as well as some things from her personal stash that she generously donated. So what are you waiting for, get hopping and head on over to Stef ~ I'm sure she has something amazing to share with you!
