So after weeks of talking myself up (some might say I'm really good at that!!) I am finally launching myself as part of the Squigglefly Design Team. And for my very first challenge with them - well didn't I just have a roller coaster of a week!
Going from one DT (I ♥ ProMarkers) which uses Blogger for everything I was a bit surprised to find there was another way to organise the team and that was through Yahoo! I was sent my invite to join the team and with great excitement I logged on, only to find that I was unable to do anything on the blog and I was being sent round and round in circles (this actually drove me mental for at least two days!!). With the help (and patience, I must add) of the lovely Holly Barnhart I did eventually sort that little problem out and after taking a couple of days to get used to the differences between the way the two blogs run I was off and running.
We were given a couple of really lovely images each and after choosing the rather enchanting I Love NY (available HERE) by Squigglefly artist Mike Eustis I made the card above. I took my normal photo and uploaded the card only to find that the challenge for this week (Challenge #2712) is PAPER PIECING!!! Still in the ProMarkers mindset I thought nothing about the challenge theme, so determined was I to get the card done and uploaded I didn't give anything else a second thought.
As with the Kenny K DT, we are split into two teams and I am on the lovely Rhonda Zmikly's team - Rhonda's Rowdy Rascals. I never imagined I would get to 48 and start being called a rascal! After finishing this entry I will be putting a link to all my Squigglefly team mates on the side-bar for you to have a look at if you so want and I can't recommend them highly enough. As for the Squigglefly shop itself, If you have never heard of it before, it sells a huge selection of Digital stamps at very reasonable rates by a massive array of great artists, there are even a few freebies for you to try before you purchase anything else, a Try Before You Buy if you will.
As for the card I have entered, well I don't hate it but it's definitely not one of my most favourite, not by a long shot. I hope you like it though and I will see you again soon,
