May Sketch at Sugar Creek Hollow
Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow. We have a sketch to challenge you with this week and a few changes.
The changes are simple - we are going back to our roots and we want you to show us vintage, shabby chic or primitive inspired cards or other paper crafted projects following the challenge theme for each week. If these aren't your styles, then this is the challenge blog for you because you will be able to get wonderful inspiration and stretch your creative repertoire. That is what a challenge means - trying something outside your comfort zone.
We are really excited to announce that some of our challenges are going to be sponsored but even though the Sugar Creek Hollow store is closed, Tracy will still offer a digi of her choice to the random winner when there is no sponsor. She will also offer a freebie once in a while so you need to check the challenge blog often.
We have reduced the size of the Design Team but will round it out with Guest Designers. We will continue to choose a top pick each week and then select a Guest Designer each month from that group. From time to time we will feature an invited Guest Designer.
My card this week isn't quite as vintage as I would have wanted but I do like it. I wish my Mother was still alive because I would have sent it to her for Mother's Day and I know she would have been pleased to receive it. Of course, since her favourite colour was blue, I know she would have liked it more if I had used that colour :) Did I ever tell you about her blue glass collection? There were 800 pieces in all but perhaps that will be a story for another time.
