Sugar Creek Hollow--Come Join Us!!

It is Saturday and that means a new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow . We have an easy one this week because it is all about Stripes and Spots.   We want to see both on your beautiful vintage, shabby chic or primitive card or other paper crafted project.

We will be choosing one random winner who will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display. The Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week and the creator will receive a badge and will be in the running for a Guest Design spot.

As if two prizes aren't enough, don't forget that we have Christmas Blog Candy for one lucky winner to be chosen from our challenge entries between now and Christmas Eve. Just follow the challenge theme and the rules on the sidebar to submit up to 3 entries each week.

Our Design Team have created some fabulous projects this week that will be sure to inspire you. Joining us is our Guest Designer Audhild who was chosen from the September Cards of the Week. To get details of any of the projects, just click on their name and you will be taken directly to their blog.

I was so excited to create my card this week as I am playing with my new goodies from Papertrey Ink. I have stalked their blog and store for such a long time, and finally placed my first order. I couldn't resist this past month when Nicole released her new set and dies "In the Meadow". Many of you may already love and use their products, but let me just tell you that their dies are out of this world. I used the tree die, horse and sleigh, and the two different sizes of snow to create my card. I decided to let the design paper do the talking and because of that, my only stamping is done with one of the sentiments that I also purchased in the Think Big Favorites #9 set using Versamark and copper embossing powder. I can't wait to try something else using my new stamps.

Don't you just love that sentiment??? I used my Martha Stewart border punch to create some more trees along the bottom.

So glad you could visit today and hope you enjoyed my card, now get on over to the blog and check out the ladies and be sure and check out our blog candy.  Just enter a card and that Cricut may belong to you. Have a fabulous Saturday!!
