An Odd Chick



The chick is really not odd, but this week's Squigglefly challenge is "Odd Man Out" (SFC1713) and calls for images or embellishments or other items in "odd" numbers. I used one image, one sentiment, three stars, three Stickle drops on each side of the sentiment, five red Stickle drops on the top flower, and three gems. My image is Let's Get Cookin' by Mike Eustis and it was one of the first images I ever bought from Squigglefly. I just love baby chicks. My sentiment says "Cooking in Style" and inside it says "Thanks to your Generousity!" - it is one of the Thank You cards I made for my daughter to send for her Wedding Shower Gifts.

I am entering this card in the Sketch Saturday challenge as I used the super fun sketch #256.

The Squigglefly challenge is such a great challenge and so easy to play along with! Anyone can join in the fun using images from anywhere, but you need to use a Squigglefly image somewhere on your creation to be eligible for the challenge prize. Luckily there are free images (bg digi papers, frames, and images) that are super cute - here is a card I made with one of the images available free in the store:




Hugz!

  6. Loving the paper pieced chef's hat on the chick - too cute!! Need to find one like if for hubby LOL! I am hoping our hummers find the feeder this year as a tree has blocked it off quite a bit this year. May have to move it as I just love seeing them. Nice touch with the gems in the corner.
