We have arrived at another Saturday and that means a wonderful new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow. Since we are fast approaching Christmas we decided to challenge you to make VINTAGE CHRISTMAS TAGS. Your vintage tag can be part of a card or a stand-alone beauty.



We want to remind you that we are a vintage, shabby chic or primitive challenge blog and when you enter one of our challenges, your creation must fit one of those styles as well as following the weekly theme.



This week one random winner will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display. In addition, 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 Designer spot.



Don't forget, we also have Christmas Blog Candy for one lucky winner to be chosen from our challenge entries between now and Christmas Eve.



Rick and I were able to get away for a few hours on Tuesday to go shopping and eat out ... and I made my first visit to an Ikea store where I found these beautiful vintage images on cards and tags. I also purchased some candy bars which I will be giving as gifts with these wonderful covers. I used SU gray to cover the bar, then scored and folded this wonderful Victorian lady card around it! Punching some of the gray with the new doily punch also by SU, I layered it with the tags...one of which I put an antique looking brad through. I then used a sentiment and doily stamp on a Clear Dollar die cut along with some clear gems. This was a lot of fun and so simple, hope they like them.


Our designers have created some gorgeous tags for your inspiration. If you would like the details just click on their name to be taken directly to their blog.


Thanks for stopping by to visit and I am hoping to see your card there this week. Enjoy this wonderful time of the year and all of the wonderful things in it!
