Taking Shape at Sugar Creek Hollow

Happy Memorial Day and a heartfelt thank you to all of those that have given so much in service to our great county of the United States of America!!

I hope you all have wonderful plans for this holiday weekend. We have had one cookout already and I am meeting my family on my Dad's side today for lunch. Out of a family of 9 I only have 3 uncles remaining, I am so looking forward to seeing everyone, and with that let me say.....

Welcome to Sugar Creek Hollow and another Sensational Saturday.  This week we are challenging you to make SHAPED CARDS.  Now everyone will tell you a square or a rectangle is a shape and they are correct but we want you to stretch your creativity and to try making cards in lots of other shapes.  We want to remind you that we are a vintage, shabby chic or primitive inspired challenge blog so lets see your shaped cards in one of those styles.  And one other reminder - our challenges go live on Saturday morning at 8:00 am EST so please do not link to a post prior to that day and time.

This week we have a wonderful sponsor, "priscillastyles" Store.  The random winner will receive $10 worth of digis of their choice from "priscillastyles" Store and a Sugar Creek Hollow winner's badge to display on her blog.

The Design Team will also choose a Card of the Week and that creator will receive a badge to display on her blog and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

The Design Team has created some wonderful cards for your inspiration using images from "priscillastyles" Store. I have used the wash basin and pitcher, which can be found in the store here.

For my card today, I used a 6" paper doilie and then layered digital paper, lace and ribbon along with Priscilla's lovely image. I wanted you to see the inside of my card so that you wouldn't think that I had just decorated a doilie, lol.  Hope you will stop by the SCH blog and see what the other girls have for you this week, such pretty and creative eye candy for you!!

Fabulous creation. I love the doily added to the circle card. I also love the shape that you printed your image on and the soft colours are perfect for this image.

Your cards are always so beautiful, both inside and out. I love the doily. The pitcher is so pretty in those colors. I think it's beautiful in every color I've seen it done in! Love the lace and crystals too!
