Hello and Happy Sunday to you all. 
We just got back from dropping off our daughter at Soccer camp, boy am I going to miss her and I hope she stays hydrated and cool!  It is so hot and humid here.We stayed to watch the US play Japan in the womens soccer and it was a sad game! Boo Hoo, but congrats to Japan for winning in PK's.
Todays card is with a image from Doodle Pantry, called Fancy shoe.  This was a fun card to make since I do like vintage. I made the lace flower and added a button and colored the pearls with copics so they matched the coloring of the shoe. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your night!

Challenges: Bling it On- Anything goes.

Busy as a Beaver!

Hey everyone! I hope my American friends have had a wonderful 4th! We had a great weekend, we did a lot of gardening. In front of my house we have some very over grown flowers and weeds, I had, had a enough this weekend and we dug out one side,  in front of the house. What a hot mess! Now we have to figure out what to put there and buy some new plantings. We also got to see some fireworks and went to a great BBQ with some delicious food.
Today is the 5th so that means the new release are out with Doodle Pantry. Laurie has done it again, another great release! This card is done with the new Hello Beaver set and I used the digi flower papers that comes with the images. Isn't he adorable ?
I also had time to make this cute guy with another new set called Quirky Alligator. For this card I used the pre-colored image and the two digi papers. Using the pre- colored images make creating a card a snap! Be sure to check out the rest of the DT's wonderful creation and all the new releases.

Sensational Holiday

Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow. 
This week we have a PATRIOTIC challenge
for you.  We want you to celebrate your country and its
and make your vintage, shabby chic or primitive card
using the colors of your country as represented by its flag.
 Here is my card with an image that I got from The Graphics fairy. This is a great vintage blog and she has a lot of different vintage images. This image is Lady Liberty and of course she is carrying the American flag in honor of the 4th of July.

Most of the ladies on the Sugar Creek Hollow Design Team are from the
United States so patriotic cards have a red, white and blue theme. 
One of our members is Canadian and she has used a classic Canadian icon
and done her card in red and white as those are the colors of the
Canadian flag.  We are really looking forward to getting a colorful
history lesson of the countries of our challenge participants.

This week we will reward a random winner with a badge to display on her
blog and a digi of our choice.  The Design Team will choose a Card
of the Week and the creator of that card will receive a badge to display
and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

As you can see the Design Team is very patriotic and has provided some
wonderful inspiration for you.  To get details of their cards, just
click on their names and you will be taken directly to their blogs.
