Thinking of You

Hey there,

Guess what? It's Friday!!!! It's Fabulous Friday at Sugar Creek Hollow. Every Friday is Fabulous Friday.

It's the end of a long week and the beginning of a fantastic up coming week for my family and I. Tomorrow we will be loading up the car and driving to Atlanta to visit my family. It has been six years since my entire family has been together. My brother came from Germany with his family, my parents also made the trip from Puerto Rico. We will be reuniting at my sisters house in Atlanta.

With every high comes a low. Today is my last post as a Design Team member for Sugar Creek Hollow. For my last challenge to the girls, I challenged them to make a card without DP. Everyone knows that making a card without DP can be challenging. However, if you are creative, you can overcome the challenge and make a card that is simply beautiful.

For my card, I embossed the Mellow Moss CS. I used the SCH Dogwood image and layered it over the oval and scallop oval nesties. I used Tracey's Crinkled Ribbon, a button and some gold rhinestones. I colored the images with my copis. My sentiment is computer generated and punched with SU Modern Label.

I hope you visit the rest of the DT to see their cards and make sure you leave a message.

Have a blessed weekend!!

Crafty Girl

Hey there,

Happy Wednesday!!! I am so excited, I have 3 more days til' my trip to Atlanta. My family and I are reuniting after 6 years. My brother and his family are coming home from Germany and my parents are coming from Puerto Rico. We are all meeting at my sister's place in Atlanta. There are 17 of us!!! Eight adults and Nine kids. It's going to be fun!!!!

Enough about me, let me share with you my card for today. I made this card a few weeks ago waiting to share it with you today. This card is for one of my best friends. Her birthday is this weekend. She is my inspiration! Not only is she dynamic in crafting, baking and sewing, she is a beautiful woman and sister in Christ. Happy Birthday Margret!!!

Well, I have so much to do today. I have to take the car in to make sure it's all ready for a 13 hour trip. Then, I have to finish the laundry and tidy up my house. I hope you have a blessed day. Stay cool!!!

The Skies the Limit

Hey there,

It's going to be a Fabulous Friday. The start of the weekend, good weather and a great showcase of some amazing creativity over at Sugar Creek Hollow.

This week the challenge was to Pile it On. We needed to make a card with as many details as we can. For my card, I used Soft Sky and Chocolate Chip CS, DS paper, Sewing, Photo Corner Punch, Drew Drops, Tracey's Crinkled Ribbon, Scallop and Oval Nesties, yarn and Modern Label punch.

My main image is from the Father's Day set Vintage Balloon. I colored the balloon with my copics, cut the balloon out from the basket and added yarn to give it 3D.

I made this card for my son who graduated from high school on Wednesday. I can't believe he is now college bond. This digi set could be used for so many different occasions. Don't forget, Father's Day is this weekend.

Now it's time to visit the rest of the Sugar Creek Hollow Blog to see the DT's "Pile it On" cards. They did an awesome job with this challenge.

Thanks for visiting!

Father's Day Celebration

Hey there,

Come take a look at the beautiful cards the design team as done this week. We are celebrating Father's Day at Sugar Creek Hollow. Click on the link to take you to the Sugar Creek Hollow Blog.

These girls did an amazing job! We have 2 Father's Day cards you don't want to miss out on. The first one is the Rootin' Tootin' Father's Day Set

and the newest addition is the Father's Day Air Balloon Set

Now you might be wondering where is my card right? Well, I've been on strike this week. On Strike? Yes, I've taken a hideous from crafting. You see, my craft "corner" is in the room where my children play, watch tv and guest stay over. The room is a huge mess and I've given up cleaning it until someone decides to pick up the mess first. There are toys, blankets, cups, plates, tissues, game systems, socks my little dog drags along, DVD's and mostly barbies EVERYWHERE!! I simply can not go into the room. So, of course I can't craft. I am highly considering moving my things down to the garage but, then again once the cold kicks in this winter, I will be a frozen Popsicle.

Are you ever in this type of situation? Share me a story about being on strike. I would love to read your stories.

Graduation Celebration

Hey there,

Guess what today is? It's time for some fun with Sugar Creek Hollow!!! Today we are hosting a Blog Hop. One lucky winner will win a basket filled with cards created by the Design Team, Tracy's Country Crinkled Ribbon and some extra goodies.

Today, the Design Team made a card with this sketch.

We are also playing a game today is to find a secret letter in each of the Design Team's blog. To play you need to post the secret letter in all of the DT's comments section before you move on. Once you have found the secret word, post the entire word on the Sugar Creek Hollow's site. Make sure to follow the game correctly for a chance to win a basket filled with goodies.

For my card, I wanted to show you the latest graduation digi. I have to make a few of these cards this week, so I kept the card as simple as can be. If I have to make 20 of these, then I have to be able to easily duplicate them.

Okay, now it's time to play. Find the secret letter on my blog and post the letter in the comments. Then, you need to visit Kelly for the next letter. Continue to find the letters than then post the word on the Sugar Creek Hollow Blog. Have fun and good luck.

You Are a Blessing To Me

Hey there,

I can't believe it's June already! School is almost out and we are finally enjoying the perks that come with summer.

This week I have had no time to make a card. Luckily, I made 3 last week. Tonight, I will be making 2 more to show you during the weekend.

I am on a kick to learn how to make different paper flowers. These two I made are a Begonia and a Camellia. I used my bone folder to curl the flowers. Then, I sponged the edges. Finally, I added a small pearl for the center. I kept the card simple, clean and elegant. It's a perfect card for anyone.

Hope you like it!
