Vintage Text at Sugar Creek Hollow!



Good morning my friends. How is your weekend, off to a great start I hope!

How about some texting? Not the kind you may do on your cell phone but some vintage text on your shabby chic/ vintage style card for this week's challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow . We ask that you
use text either in your papers or sentiment or any other creative way you may want to use text.

My text is in my background papers and the sentiment tagged in my bow.

I also used my favorite sentiment on the inside of my card. Creating this card
for some dear friends that took us out to dinner the other night.
After years of sharing dinners, dance nights and life, we got busy with our 
own plans and had not done this for quite some time, so the night was full
of good conversation and memories. 
Believe me when I say, we will be doing this again soon!

I am sure you will all love this image I am using this week since so many of you love vintage
things. This is Fancy Shoe from Doodle Pantry
I love this shoe and have seen it colored many different ways, all beautifully!

The lace and trims along with a punched border adds some texture to my card front.



Be sure and stop by at Sugar Creek Hollow to see what the rest of our talented team has created this
week to inspire you, it is with great sadness that I tell you that as of today our teammate Holly Young has stepped down. We will miss her creativity and great spirit as I know you will, but we wish her only the best in life. 

I wanted to show you this picture of my Azalea blooming this past week, this is the first time I have ever seen an Azalea bloom in October. We planted this one in the spring after receiving it at my Mother-in-law's funeral. I could not believe my eyes. Also, I want to apologize for being absent lately, we have been away
on a trip and I have just been behind on my blogging.
Hope to see you soon, enjoy your day!
