Sunflowers on Saturday!

As you drive around at this time of year you can't help but see lots of sunflowers growing in fields and gardens. It is always amazing that they can grow so tall with such big heads and not topple over. This week our Sensational Saturday challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow is to create a vintage, shabby chic or primitive card or other paper-crafted project featuring SUNFLOWERS in the main image.

This week we are fortunate to have a lovely sponsor with us.

You too can create cards and paper crafts like the Funkie Junkie.

Linda Coughlin, a.k.a The Funkie Junkie , loves using unusual frilly and funky items in her crafting. She has searched out or handmade the many delightful embellishments offered for sale in her Etsy boutique. Hand touched and personal attention to each and every order are hallmarks of her boutique. Linda warmly invites you to stop by for a browse.

We will be choosing a random winner who will receive a $15 gift certificate for The Funkie Junkie's Etsy boutique and a winner's badge from Sugar Creek Hollow to display on her blog.  In addition, the Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week (or shall we say Project of the Week) and the creator will receive a badge to display on her blog and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

Linda is also joining us as a Guest Designer and she and the Design Team have made some fabulous Sunflower cards. To get details on their projects, just click on each Designer's name and you will be taken directly to their blog.

I hope that you love sunflowers as much as I do and will play along with us this week. For my card I loved using my Spellbinder dies and designer paper for my background for the beautiful flowers which I stamped, hand cut and layered .... this sunflower stamp is from Gina K Designs set "A Year of Flowers". I hope you like it and will create something for us to see at Sugar Creek Hollow. I will be looking for you.

Hoping your weekend is wonderful and safe and full of all the things that you love. Take care!

Patti, your sunflower card is marvelous! I just love the soft vintage feel to it. And the polk dots and houndstooth check give it such a warm country feel. Beautiful work! I'm so honored to be a part of your challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow!
