Cream - Plus Two
This week the new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow is called CREAM PLUS TWO. That means we want you to make vintage or shabby chic cards in cream and two other colours.
We will be choosing one random winner who will receive a digi of our choice along with at winner's badge to display. The Design Team will choose their Top Pick and that creator will receive a winner's badge but will also be in the running for a monthly Guest Designer spot.
I told you I was spending last week in Mississippi. I chat with a number of lovely ladies on a Papercraft Planet group and 6 of us got together at the home of one of the ladies in Mississippi for a week of crafting, chatting and laughing. We had never met in person but when we did, it was like seeing old friends. The ladies are all wonderful and we had the best time together.
One of the ladies had to stay there because she came from an area right in the path of the big storm and she finally got to go home yesterday. While she was naturally worried about her family, she was with our fabulous hostess and got extra crafting time in. I landed in Toronto while the outer bands of the storm were hitting on Monday night and got down safely and relatively on time despite some turbulence but the ride home was a white-knuckle one. We had a couple of storm-related deaths here when signs flew off buildings and lots of trees fell damaging houses and cars. There were also some power outages but we were really unscathed compared to those states in the US so my thoughts and prayers are with everyone who is so affected by the storm.
My card this week is cream with red and green - typical for Christmas! I printed some music on cream card stock, cut a poinsettia with a Marianne Creatables Die Set and then sponged it with distress inks. The focal image and ticket were freebies that I found online and I made the calendar. The little baubles are a Spellbinders die and all that was left was to add some satin ribbon and a few pearls.
