Sensational Christmas in August with SCH

Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow.  We
know it is August and it has been so hot in so many areas but it is time
to cool things down and think Christmas.  This week our challenge
to you is to make a VINTAGE CHRISTMAS
CARD
.



We want you to put away your cute images and find a vintage Christmas
image in your craft room or online.  For this challenge you also
need to get out your most vintage papers and embellishments.  There
are lots of freebies available online so use your favorite search engine
and you will find lots of options.  If you are in the need of some
retail therapy, there are also a number of wonderful vintage products in
the craft stores now.

Vintage doesn't necessarily mean overly embellished especially since you
want to be able to afford the postage to mail your creation but you do
want to make it look old so this is the time to think inks, distressing,
lace, antique buttons, etc. - oh my what endless possibilities.

We will be choosing a random winner and that person will receive a
winner's badge to display on her blog and a digi of our choice.  In
addition, the Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week
and the creator will receive a badge to display and will be in the
running for a Guest Designer spot.

Our designers pulled out all the stops to create vintage Christmas cards
for your inspiration.  For details on each card just click on the
designer's name and you will be taken to their blog.
