Photo Time at Sugar Creek Hollow!

Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow where this week we are going photo inspired! We ask that you choose a photo that inspires you and to post it with your creation for this week. The above photo is one that I took myself while on our bi annual shooting weekend in South Carolina. The club that we stay at is beautiful with ponds, wooded and open field areas and at some point in the long weekend, I love to take the golf cart around and look for photo opportunities. This was made one wonderfully warm March afternoon with the soft breeze blowing and the birds serenading. I will never forget the way I felt that beautiful afternoon.
For my card I used this gorgeous stamp from La Blanche that I bought because it reminded me of this picture, so when we received this challenge, I knew immediately what I would do, don't you just love it when that happens???

I hope that you will find a photo, either one that you have taken or just one that speaks to you and create something for us at Sugar Creek Hollow. We just ask that you create in vintage, shabby chic or primitive style and the rest is up to you. The winner will receive a digi of our choice and a badge to place on their blog. One project will also be chosen by the design team as Card of the Week, receiving a winner's badge and be placed in the running for a monthly Guest Designer spot with the team.

On a personal note, to all of you that have emailed or left comments with condolences during this past week, thank you so much. Rick and I both appreciate you all so much. We are both doing well, just a very busy time for us. I am so grateful to have friends like you all, I will hopefully be back up to full steam and posting and visiting soon, until then I ask your understanding.

Wonderful photo, Patti, and a beautiful card that it inspired. Would you believe that I picked a hibiscus from the yard yesterday and used it as a model to color up a stamped hisbiscus image? I just took a photo of the flower and will get the card made up today -- how perfect was that?
Take you time on getting back -- we're thinking of you during this time and are glad you have family and friends to offer comfort!

What a lovely photo and the stamp is absolutely perfect to convey how it inspired you. The soft paper and pretty lace help make the image pop.
