Fireflies!



The new Squigglefly challenge is to make a Thinking of You card. Rhonda's DT group (the group I am on) is off this week and Holley's group is doing the inspiration - they were so inspiring that I had to make a card too. I made my card with an image that is new to the store called Firefly Frenzy - Maddie (Cheryl Grant). When I was making this card, I remembered I had an old SU! set that had a mason jar image and I used that for the jars behind my image. If you look at the bottom left where the flowers are and look to the right of the arrangement, you can see a little purple flower. That is my first attempt at a dryer sheet flower. I know it is small and hard to see, but I finally tried one (Benzi and Emzi I hope you are reading this - I know I told you both in the past I was going to try one).

Hugz!

  3. Yay for you, Nancy. I'm glad you made a dryer sheet flower. Aren't they easy? I'm thinking you made that large flower, too. You always make the best ones. I wanted to make one of your flowers when I cased your QFTD card but knew I probably couldn't accomplish it. This is the cutest card you've created. Love the added jar. Reminds me of when I was little and catching fireflies.

    BTW, your card I cased really did have a history. Glad it is now in your daughter's hands to treasure.
