Lovely Lace

Wow, it is Saturday finally.  I thought this day would never come because I had my grandchildren here all week.  A four year old and a 19 month old sure can keep you moving but now they have gone home and I can get some rest and do some crafting.  I think they have given me a cold and when I told my granddaughter that she had given me a present I didn't really want she informed me that the only way she wouldn't be able to give it to me was to stay away from me but then she wouldn't be able to give me kisses and hugs - lol.

Our challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow was to make a card using one of the fall or winter release images  and lace.  I love this village scene tag with its great sentiment.  Check out the Sugar Creek Hollow blog where you will see some gorgeous creations by the rest of the design team and then hop over to the shoppe and pick up some wonderful stamps.  While you are shopping, don't forget to grab one of the freebie sentiments and why don't you share your creation with us at the blog.  You could win one of the wonderful Sugar Creek Hollow images.
