I received this beauty from Louise (along with a cute HA stamp)!! Thanks Louise. This card was created for the May Card Chain Challenge.

And now I'd like to share some cards I've come across using my handmade buttons and as Amy put it...I'm so happy these ladies 'DE-HOARDED' some of their buttons!!! I still find it too funny that most hoard my buttons...or maybe that's what they say and they just chucked them in the trash! ;)


No need to hoard friends!! ;) Hopefully I'll be adding some more buttons in my Etsy shop..I'm thinking of making some embellies using my buttons and making canvas flowers (like the flower Kathy sent me)...gotta find me some canvas!!

And finally the winner of the House Beautiful magazine is...

My husband has come back from his trip to Canada and I don't know who's or the kids!!  He bought me one of my favourite magazines House Beautiful (June) and guess what... I got one in the mail this morning...House Beautiful's June edition! ;) He forgot that I subscribed to it about a month and a half ago.

So if anyone would like to get this issue please leave a comment and I'll randomly choose one winner.
Have a great day!! ;)

retro tulips release and some news...

So happy to finally have another digi image release at Squigglefly...introducing 'Retro Tulips'

I doodled this while I was on the phone and's pretty cute!! As I was working on it I noticed that my back petals 'floated'...they don't have a complete outline...and I thought would this be difficult to work with. It's not actually........I started colouring at the top of my petals and got lighter as I went down..

I used some glitter to outline the petals. If you got some good scissors it's easy to cut out.
Please go and check out what my TALENTED DT created!!

I seriously want to teleport these ladies into my living room...have some cake and coffee together and exchange some BIG bear hugs!!!

Please stop by Courtney Kelley's blog, our TALENTED Guest Designer and check out what she created. I just LOVE the way she adds layers, patterns and stitching to her projects!!

So if you'd like to win Retro Tulips please leave a comment and I'll randomly pick a winner tomorrow!

And now on to my news....first I was pleased as punch when I saw that I won last weeks digi challenge at 2Peas!!

So....I'm sooooo flippin EXCITED to announce that I will be illustrating.....

I'll be joining


How CRAZY is that!!!!!!!! I have to admit I'm freakin out a bit!! ;) I'm soooo EXCITED and I have officially started doodling like a mad woman!! ;) I hope I won't let these two AWESOME companies down!!

Hope you all have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!!

I'm just wondering.....let's say you want to buy some handmade fimo buttons....would you buy a pack with one colour in different shades (like a pack of pink buttons in different shades of light and dark pinks) or a pack of 2-3 different colours that compliment each other or a rainbow mix of colours??? I really appreciate your input!
Have a great day!

Card Patterns and Hero Arts


Quick post....I just had to play along with Card Patterns Sketch 62 Challenge...Hero Arts is the sponsor!!!

Instead of adding flowers (like in the sketch) I decided to go with a sentiment...I didn't have a lot of space to add some flowers or buttons but I think this worked out well.

Hope you all have a great day today....gotta run!!
